Not So Fun Fact
After a concert in Orange County, California 36-year-old Kim Fowley, band manager and agent for the Runaways, raped 16-year-old Jackie Fox with multiple witnesses including Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Cherie Currie and Sandy West. None of her bandmates came to her defense.
Jackie Fox went back to her birth name of Fuchs, graduated with her Juris Doctor from Harvard University, where Barack Obama was one of her classmates. She speaks Italian and French, as well as conversational Greek and Spanish and is one of the top entertainment lawyers in Hollywood today.
And if that’s not bad enough, Joan Jett gave the eulogy at the funeral for Kim Fowley.

Grave Location Description
As you drive through the gates of Forest Lawn (bor-ring) go straight and turn right on Memory Lane, right on Cypress Drive and then left on Guardian Drive. Stop halfway down at the point where the low wall indents on the left (even with the statue of David in the distance on your left). Go up the short steps and turn to the right and find a large pine tree and you will find Sandy West is buried just one row behind (west) and slightly to the north of the pine tree.
