Kim Fowley and Mark Anthony became important contributors during the songwriting process bringing in the title and basic structure of the song "King of the Night Time World" from their previous band Hollywood Stars' then-unreleased 1974 album Shine Like a Radio (which also featured the original version of the Alice Cooper song "Escape" from Welcome to My Nightmare).

Says wikipedia.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

From what I have seen and read he is not a partial songwriter but he and Bob Ezrin both arranged the song and that is why they are listed, not sure if they altered any words.

Kim Fowley creeped me out..He was really into young girls..Didn't he rape Jackie Fox (Runaways bassist) in front of the rest of the band?

Wow! I never knew that.

Listening to this original song on youtube, I would say Paul (and/or Gene, Ace & Peter) made it good. I'm hating this original version. razz

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

Not with Joan, Lita or Cherie. But he supposedly made them watch while he did his deeds...Jackie has a video (somewhere on YT) where she goes into details.

From what I've read, Kim was (somewhat) afraid of Joan and (especially) Lita. They didnt take any crap from him from what I've read...Jackie said when the incident happened, she was drugged up from taking a quaalude that was given to her by a roadie. After that, Kim supposedly had his way with her while the others looked on...Supposedly Cherie tried to stop Kim, but then she left the room...

..There's several interviews with Jackie online recalling that night..really tough to listen to.
