More About Crazy Enough by Storm Large
 
 
 
Overview
Yes, Storm Large is her real name, though she's been called many things. As a performer, the majority of descriptions have led with "Amazon," "powerhouse," "a six-foot Vargas pinup come to life." "Playboy "called her a "punk goddess." You'd never know she used to be called "Little S"--the mini-me to her beautiful and troubled mother, Suzi.
Little S spent most of her childhood visiting her mother in mental institutions and psych wards. Suzi's diagnosis changed with almost every doctor's visit, ranging from schizophrenia to bipolar disorder to multiple personality disorder to depression. One day, nine-year-old Little S jokingly asked one of her mother's doctors, "I'm not going to be crazy like that, right?" To which he replied, "Well, yes. It's hereditary. You absolutely will end up like your mother. But not until your twenties."
Storm's story of growing up with a mental time bomb hanging over her veers from frightening to inspiring, sometimes all in one sentence. But her strength, charisma, and raw musical talent gave her the will to overcome it all. "Crazy Enough "is a love song to the twisted, flawed parts in all of us.
