The hardest-rocking raunch 'n' roller in showbiz, Wendy O. Williams claimed her fame by thrashing onstage wearing little more than electrical tape, shaving cream, and a Mohawk haircut. Walking multiple tightropes that combined punk, speed metal, performance art, and schlocky shock entertainment, Williams was loud, brash, and reviled as much as she was loved. In the early 1980s Williams graduated from seedy New York City live sex shows to front a band of mayhem rockers. The Plasmatics were known as much for blowing up crap onstage as they were for their crude, high-volume music. Aside from creating a screeching singing sensation, Williams left an impression on film. For hard-R breast action, choose Reform School Girls (1986). Harder pleasures are packaged in Candy Goes to Hollywood (1979). Unfortunately, rock and movie stardom is fleeting. Wendy, born in 1949, was at least a generation older than her core audience, which dwindled and left her alone. She took her own life in 1998.
