Thank you! Cherry Vanilla, born Kathleen Anne Dorritie inwas the youngest of four children of a brutal sanitation worker and indulgent hotel-switchboard operator. After graduating from a Catholic school in Brooklyn, she went on the prowl in Manhattan for sex, drugs rock 'n' roll and a way to make a buck using her street smarts and creative spirit.
Lick Me: How I Became Cherry Vanilla by Cherry Vanilla Synopsis: In this sexually open and disarming account of her life and the era, Cherry Vanilla tells all about her personal successes and failures and in the process explores every aspect of the music industry during its most electrifying era--complete with detours through the sexual revolution, the women's liberation movement, and the theater of the ridiculous. From her rise from humble Irish Catholic beginnings to a Madison Avenue wunderkind in the swinging s, an actress in Andy Warhol's Pork, David Bowie's publicist, and punk band diva to her notoriety as a groupie--known to have bedded musicians ranging from David Bowie and Leon Russell to Kris Kristofferson--her behind-the-scenes tale chronicles the highs and lows of her fast-lane existence. Far from a saccharine glamorization of a high-profile life, the memoir also candidly acknowledges the parallel downsides of the high-rolling days--unwanted pregnancies, poverty, sex addiction, and obsessive-compulsive disorder--and how she handled them.

Cherry Vanilla is my hero. Here's a woman who, through sheer force of personality and a forceful sense of sexuality was a success on Madison Avenue in the early '60s and an in-demand DJ in the late '60s, before deciding that what she really wanted was to be a groupie. Then she starred in Andy Warhol's infamous Pork on the London stage and became head of Public Relations for Bowie during the early '70s before finally realizing her own rock 'n' roll dreams by becoming a recording artist in her own right.
I have wanted to interview Cherry Vanilla for quite sometime now. The book is getting rave reviews I found out that she was going to my dear friend Randy Jones party so I jumped at the chance to ask her a few questions. However I did forget to ask her about having Sting and The Police as her back up band for a tour in Europe.
