Mother of Rock – Lillian Roxon

“She looked like a Botticelli angel who’d just finished giving King Kong a blow job.”

If that doesn’t pique your interest, I just don’t get you.

But if you ARE curious, that line is from Mother of Rock – Lillian Roxon. “Witness to New York’s infamous punk scene, Lillian Roxon chronicled the movement during the 1960s and 70s. Roxon mingled with the likes of John and Yoko, the Velvet Underground and Janis Joplin and was one of the first on the scene to champion the work of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and the Doors.”

I missed this when it first came out, but recently caught it on TV and was definitely intrigued by Lillian’s story. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out the trailers here:
