Kim Fowley

Beverley Hills, Los Angeles, USA
He's got 43 gold discs and has worked with the Byrds, the Mothers, and many other artists, he's discovered more million-selling artists than Slade have made spelling mistakes. Kim has made millions of dollars, lost them, regained them and mislaid them again.

He was B. Bumble and the Stingers, the Hollywood Argylls, he worked with the Raiders before Paul Revere and saw Leon Rusell stand in as Paul when Mark Lindsey vanished. His were the original versions of "Poppa Oom Mow Mow" and "Popsicles and Icicles." He was the first guy to produce Family and gave them their name.

Kim Fowley, writer / arranger / producer /musician / singer / talker / comic / entrepreneur / promoter / publisher / child genius /mature infant, has been involved prominently in every major development in rock'n roll since the late '50s. He was also the first producer to take Dave, Don, Jimmy & Noddy into a studio and produce a record. That 45 was You Better Run which went on to be the groups first 'sell out' Xmas #1 chart hit, although it was only in the Wolverhampton area, but it was still a good start.

My apologies to La Fuite, I ripped this from there, which was an interesting site, but is no longer around.
