Cyrinda Fox was a famous groupie, muse and a leading light on the NYC scene of the 1970s. She starred in Warhol’s Bad, appeared in the video to David Bowie’s The Jean Genie (and had a brief fling) and later married the New York Doll’s David Johansen after the two dated for many years.
“Sex kittens don’t get fat, they get fluffy.” – Cyrinda Foxe
After less than a year of marriage to Johansen, Foxe left him for Steven Tyler. Foxe and Tyler married and had a daughter, Mia, but the marriage was troubled by drug addiction, extramarital affairs, and physical and emotional abuse. Foxe and Tyler divorced shortly before Aerosmith made a comeback in the late 1980s. She raised Mia in Sunapee, New Hampshire and New York City.
She died in 2002 from an inoperable brain tumor. People of the ’70s glam rock scene were greatly affected, many of them including David Bowie and Sylvain Sylvain made public tributes to her.
