Storm Large, Crazy Enough

Friday, January 27, 2012

Storm Large talks about her rocky life and her memoir, Crazy Enough. She grew up with a mentally ill mother who was often institutionalized,  and set out on a destructive path to live her own life to the fullest, developing an addiction to heroin. She tells how reconnecting with her love of music brought her back from the edge.

I thought Leonard gave a very compassionate interview. She still sounds so enmeshed with her mother--she has a long way to go. She would benefit from a psycho-drama group. Life is challenging.

Methinks Dennis doth protest too much; perhaps discussions of real lives are beyond his ability to comprehend. "Storms" "I's" are certainly appropriate in an interview focused, as it was, on her very harrowing history and personal life. All that is background, however. She is an electrifying, exciting performer with an amazing vocal and expressive range.

I feel for "Storm Large" and her mother's mental instability during her childhood, however, this interview is one of the most uninteresting, one-dimensional interviews I've heard on WNYC. I can't be sure how many times "Storm" said "I", but I can be sure that I'm unlikely to pay attention to a thing she does. Talk about bad PR.
