Music Legend Kim Fowley Says “Please Pray For Me” After Dark Moment In Hospital
Hollywood — Kim Fowley is a music legend that has seen the good, the bad and the ugly side of the industry for over 6 decades. And now at 74 years of age it seems that his health is failing him. Fowley has taken to social networks and has asked fans and friends, “Please pray for me.”
Fowley first made his way into the Los Angeles music scene in the 60s producing records. In the 70s he found himself working with KISS, Alice Cooper and The Runaways. In the late 80s Fowley became involved with Candy featuring Gilby Clarke (Ex. Guns N’ Roses) and along the way named the Hollywood hairband Pretty Boy Floyd. By the early 90s Kim had touched with locals like Blackboard Jungle and a slew of bands from Southern California to Europe and Australia.
Crazy are the numbers.
According to the Kim Fowley Wikipedia, Kim has released 28 solo records between 1967 and 2013. Add to this, he produced, co-wrote or contributed and worked on another 33 records between 1959 and 2011.

The second installment of his autobiography will be called “Planet Pain” and will cover the years 1970-1994. The last part of his autobiography will be finished on his death bed and is intended to be released posthumously.
