Happy birthday, Jackie Fox...
Born Jacqueline Louise Fuchs on 20 December 1959, Jackie Fox is a former musician and currently attorney. She played the bass for the pioneering all-female rock band, The Runaways (Cherie Currie, Joan Jett, Sandy West, Micki Steele, Lita Ford...).
She had initially auditioned for the lead guitar position but the band hired Lita Ford instead. Some time later, she was called back and offered the bassist position in the band, which she accepted. Fox joined The Runaways in 1975, shortly before her sixteenth birthday.
Fox played on The Runaways' second studio album, Queens of Noise (1977).
According to multiple sources, the manager Kim Fowley refused to let Fox play on the band's 1976 debut album and Blondie's bassist, Nigel Harrison, was hired to play on.
During the Japanese Tour, Fox decided to leave the band. Fox's final appearance with The Runaways' was on their 1977 Live in Japan album.
In the years following her tenure with The Runaways, Jackie Fox has worked in a variety of fields, most notably as a record promotions executive, as a modeling agent, as the promoter of Tony Robbins' Firewalking seminars, and most recently as an entertainment attorney in the motion picture and television arenas, representing actors, writers, directors, authors and producers.
