Leif Blower

Is the return of Leif Garrett a sure sign of the Apocalypse?

Sounds as if your new band was going to record a hard-rock version of your teen hit "I Was Made for Dancin'," but now that's not happening?We did it a couple times on tour; it turned out really well, and people really liked it. But I called up the people who owned the publishing and said, "Look, I wanna do a remake of this song. We know it's gonna be a big hit again if we do it right, and I think we can. Since I got boned the first time around, you guys gotta give me some publishing [rights]; you gotta give me something." They're like, "Nah." I was like, "OK, well fuck you then. I'm not doing it."

That'll show 'em!I wasn't about to just give them more money without getting something. It's like, "You guys haven't made millions enough off it?"

Leif Garrett survived Tiger Beat and heroin, but maybe not rock and roll

It must be tough to approach big record companies today just to be told, "We don't want you; you haven't had a hit in 25 years. You're washed up."I've never heard those words. Um, I haven't heard that. If someone's saying that, I don't want to meet them.
