EP 24: Cyrinda Foxe

This week Chanty and Lynx discuss the stunningly beautiful Cyrinda Foxe.

Raised in a strict, often abusive household, Cyrinda found solace in rock n roll music and magazines. It was there she discovered women like Marianne Faithfull, Pattie Boyd, and Anita Pallenberg, divine women she describes as “absolutely superior”. In 1971, Cyrinda left home for New York City. It wasn’t long before she became a regular at Max’s Kansas City, making friends with Leee Black Childers and Candy Darling who transformed her look, giving her the “Marilyn Makeover” that caught the eye of Andy Warhol. Andy cast her in “Pork” where she met and befriended Cherry Vanilla, a woman she describes as “A pure work of art” (Chanty and Lynx full heartedly agree with this sentiment!)

It was through Cherry and Leee that Cyrinda met and fell for her first rockstar, David Bowie. Their affair was hot, hot, hot, and we have Cyrinda to thank for the fantastic song “Jean Genie” (though the lyrics are about Iggy and not her!) Her first marriage was to New York Dolls frontman David Johansson, but it’s her tempestuous second marriage to Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler (and the tell-all book she wrote about it!) that really caused a stir. Lynx and Chanty discuss all this, and Cyrinda’s deep aversion to the word “Groupie”… tune in for the full story on this week’s episode!
