Following AMANDA LEAR through the soundtrack to her life is pure pleasure. From her dreams of being a painter leading her to befriend SALVADOR DALÍ, creating a wild persona for herself modeled off SUPERWOMAN, to holding a real live PANTHER on a leash for the cover of ROXY MUSIC’s For Your Pleasure, Lear is an absolute icon for trailblazing her own way without asking permission - the EPITOME of CHARISMA. Join Arman and Amanda in this episode which KICKS OFF SEASON 3 to the absolutely UNAPOLOGETIC tempo of upbeat DISCO. More than disco, we will learn from the QUEEN herself; starting from her years at art school, living in the latin quarter of Paris. A natural born storyteller, Lear shares the trajectory of her music career from the moment DAVID BOWIE noticed the beauty in her voice and encouraged her to SING, to going her own way without looking back and recording FOLLOW ME in Munich. Unlike music, it’s the ongoing process of painting which most inspires Lear and keeps her happy. She says it best in her own words: “because I paint, I feel much more balanced. Painting helped me a lot. Otherwise, like everybody else, I would have to take drugs.” If anyone can tell a story with GUSTO TO SPARE, it’s Lear. Captivating ears for generations, it’s a standing ovation for Ep 55 of Season 3 starring AMANDA LEAR.
