The Secret Life of Amanda Lear

Jeffrey Morgan, Creem, February 1979

SHE'S BEEN called everything from the Renee Richards of Rock to Miss Before and After Science of 1984. And although she's sold millions of albums in Europe, and is that country's reigning white disco queen, North Americans probably know Amanda Lear best as the cover girl on Roxy Music's For Your Pleasure album or as the is-she-or-isn't-she host(ess) of David Bowie's 1973 Nineteen-Eighty Floor Show television special.
