One of the biggest and most prolific all-female rock bands of all time, The Runaways were a massive influence on rock music in general, back in the 70s. Formed in late 1975, the group would release four studio albums in the span of four years, before ultimately splitting up in 1979.
Despite this short-lived career, the band released songs that would stay popular for decades, including hits like "Cherry Bomb," "Queens of Noise" and "Hollywood." We still love their music, but have you ever wondered where the girls ended up? Find out right here!
Laurie McAllister - Bass (1978 - 1979)
The last member to join the band before their breakup, McAllister went on to play with The Orchids, before retiring from music entirely and beginning a career as a veterinary technician. Unfortunately, she passed away in 2011 due to complications from an asthma attack at the age of 54.
Vicki Blue - Bass (1977 - 1978)
After leaving The Runaways, Blue shifted her focus to working as a producer and director for several films and TV shows, including Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood. She even worked on a documentary about The Runaways in 2004, Edgeplay: A Film About The Runaways, which won several awards!
Jackie Fox - Guitar/Bass (1975 - 1977)
Fox (real last name Fuchs) went on to become an entertainment lawyer and celebrity photographer. She also regularly contributes to several cat care blogs, and appeared as a contestant on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? in 2013.
On a darker note, she made headlines 2015 for going public with the fact that during the band's heyday, she was sexually assaulted by their manager, Kim Fowley, on New Year's Eve in 1975. These allegations were backed by Runaways singer Cherie Currie.
Micki Steele - Bass/Vocals (1975)
Steele joined fellow all-girl rock group The Bangles in 1980, and went on to have several hit songs with them, like "Manic Monday," "Walk Like An Egpytian," and "Eternal Flame." She continues to perform live to this day!
