KIM FOWLEY

Gone But Not Forgotten • Kim Vincent Fowley


Kim Fowley was the most action-packed person I ever met. The music business was his life. He had earned more gold and platinum records than the average teenager has pimples, and yet, he understood us folk who measure a great record by what deep thud anxiety it can conjure from the depths of our alley rat souls. Chart and market success to a Nortonian are meaningless. Kim not only understood this, he dug it. No matter how many Kiss and Runaways and Helen Reddy stories he had under his belt, he knew we were yearning to know more about Althea and the Memories or Al Kavelin or the Crenshaws or any of the countless musicians, record label people, and promoters he had made records with, and for, over the past seven decades. Kim was tops in many domains, but in our world, he was King, and he always shall be. We are honored to have shared his earliest and wildest recorded material via the Norton label, and also to have worked with him at Kicks Books, delivering a life story trilogy of Kim's prose and poetry. - M.L.
