During a recent conversation to “Waste Some Time With Jason Green”, Cherie Currie said that The Runaways will probably not reunite.
She also talked about her relationship with fellow group members Lita Ford, Joan Jett, Sandy West, and Jackie Fox.
Regarding this topic, Curie said:
“I’m the only bandmember that’s ever played with all the bandmembers once The Runaways dispersed, disbanded. I played with Lita, I played with her, actually, I think in 2015 was the last time I played on stage with her. But I played, of course, with Sandy until she passed; I played with Joan [and] Jackie.
”So I played with all the band members. But Lita has a big problem with Kenny [Laguna]. I kind of understand why now. When Joan was into it, Lita wasn’t. When Lita was into it, Joan wasn’t. And at this point, it’s, like, you know what, you girls. Are you out of your mind? Just grow the eff up.
“Joan uses the excuse that we’re not teenagers anymore, we’re not The Runaways anymore. But to me, I think it’s incredibly selfish. You do things for the fans, and when you start thinking that you’re doing things for yourself after all these years of being successful in this business… I really think that both Lita and Joan owe it to the fans. But that’s just me.”
“I have stood on that stage as an adult in my late 50s… with Lita, and with Joan as well, and it was really like time had stopped every time I had gotten on stage with those two. It’s just too bad we could never have done it together, ’cause it would have absolutely been amazing. […]
“I don’t think so anymore. Because you get your hopes up, and then it falls apart. So I don’t get my hopes up for that kind of thing anymore at all.”
