Eve of Destruction: The Wild Life of Wendy O. Williams

£19.99

As singer of the punk/metal band the Plasmatics, Wendy Orlean Williams was the most outrageous female performer in rock music. She often appeared onstage topless, save for black tape on her nipples and shaving cream smeared on her breasts. During a Plasmatics performance, Wendy would destroy a television set with a sledgehammer, slice apart an electric guitar with a chainsaw and blow up a car with dynamite, all the name of combating materialism and undermining the status quo. Even though she was ferocious on stage, Wendy was by no means a rock’n’roll animal. A strict vegetarian who often ran six miles a day and lifted weights, Wendy hated drugs and alcohol, was in remarkable physical shape and was well-liked for her polite demeanor.

Yet despite her fame, legions of devoted fans and vigilance about her health, Wendy committed suicide after walking away from the public eye. In this book, music journalist Robin Eisgrau tells Wendy O. Williams’s story.
