Holly Woodlawn

Very sad to hear that the irrepressible Warhol “superstar”, Holly Woodlawn, has died. I remember going in 1973 to see the Paul Morrissey/Andy Warhol film, “Trash”, in which she starred and experiencing a different world, an outrageous humour and the proof that one could invent oneself. Lou Reed had already immortalised her in “Walk On The Wild Side”… "Holly came from Miami F-L-A, Hitchhiked her way across the U.S.A., Plucked her eyebrows on the way, Shaved her legs and then he was a she." It was a thrill a few years ago to meet Holly in London. A legend. Neil x
