Wendy Orlean Williams (May 28, 1949 – April 6, 1998), known as Wendy O. Williams , was the lead singer of the punk rock band / American heavy metal The Plasmatics.

Wendy O Williams’s Biography

Williams was born in Rochester, New York. [appointment & nbsp; required] As a child, she took dancing and tap dancing classes, debuting on television at the age of six in a dance program. She did not graduate from high school, and when she was sixteen, she moved to Colorado to work, then went to Florida and then to the United Kingdom, where she worked in a macrobiotic restaurant and later as an Arab dance dancer. New in New York, he saw an ad in the Show Business magazine that was looking for radical ‘anti-artists’ for the experimental theater company “Captain Kink’s Theater” by Rod Swenson. Williams responded to the offer, which would mean that she and Swenson, known as Captain Kink, began a long relationship of twenty-two years and that Williams became the vocalist of the punk rock band Plasmatics two years later. The band debuted in clubs in New York in 1978.

Williams’ attitude on stage caused him more than a headache. One of Plasmatics’ star numbers was sawing a guitar at the end of the performance. Williams used to act half naked or covered in foam, wearing a characteristic Mohawk hairstyle; the band used to destroy the stage after acting and one of the best known ‘exploits’ of Williams is to crash a Cadillac against a wall of televisions on the stage. In January 1981, the police in Milwaukee (United States) arrested her for simulating sex on stage. She was also arrested for hitting a policeman and for ‘obscene behavior’, despite which she was never in jail.

In 1984, Williams released the album “W.O.W.”, produced by Gene Simmons of KISS.

In 1985 Williams performed in the theatrical version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show in St. Louis. The show lasted six months, and Wendy said about himlike this show becausethink he has something to offend the whole world.

She debuted as a lead actress in the movie Reform School Girls (1986) directed by Tom DeSimone alongside Linda Carol and Pat Asat and also starred in a number of episodes of television series and directed programs of punk shows on TV and Radio < / p>

After her departure from Plasmatics, Wendy continued her solo career, which began with a record of hard rock trend; “WOW” (1984), had the production of Gene Simmons, and with an exceptional accompaniment band; Kiss in full, in his training of “Lick It Up”, with Eric Carr to the drumsticks; it left its mark on the album, and songs like “I Love Sex (and rock and roll)”, seemed to come from the sessions of “Creatures Of The Night”. After the EP “Fuck n ‘Roll” (1985) would receive a nomination to better vocalist of Rock in the Grammy of 1985; their later deliveries as “Kommander of Kaos” (1986) would resume a harder sound. In 1986 he would record the soundtrack of “Reform School Girls”, a typical production of the 80s.

In 1991, Williams moved to Storrs, Connecticut, where he lived with his former manager Ron Swenson and worked as a wildlife rehabilitator. Despite her reputation as a fearsome artist, in her personal life she was deeply devoted to caring for animals, a passion that included a vegetarian diet. In a famous American talk-show, he accused a famous cook of “not being better than a heroin camel” because of the huge amount of white sugar he used in his products.

Suicide

Wendy O ‘Williams died on April 6, 1998 at the age of 48 in Storrs, Connecticut, in a wooded area near her home, after committing suicide by shooting herself, leaving the following note:

“” The act of taking my life is not somethingdecide to do lightly,do not think anyone takes their lives without first having reflected deeply on it for a long period, butam convinced that the right to be able to doing it is one of the fundamental rights that someone can have in a free society,think that most of what the world does does not make any sense, but the feeling about whatam doing sounds loud and clear inside of the ear, in a place where there is no self, only calm, eternal love, Wendy “.”

Gene Simmons, Joey Ramone, and many others expressed their condolences upon hearing of his death. On the live album of Motörhead Everything Louder Than Everyone Else, before the song “No Class”, vocalist Lemmy dedicates this song to Wendy.
