This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Storm Large, performing in Myron’s at The Smith Center March 10-11 at 7 p.m. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Storm talks about developing a sense of humor at an early age to cope with her environment; how she came to write her memoirs at a relatively young age; why performing gave her value (and was a form of self-defense); what is the king of all candy bars (and the first song she ever wrote); why she was told she would be a huge success “just as soon as you aren’t you”; her choice to be homeless a lot as a kid; what she likes about the great American songbook and what she doesn’t like about it; what she likes about Las Vegas audiences; why she doesn’t believe you have to suffer for your art; and who inspired her to perform by telling her she had value.
Storm Large is a musician, actor, playwright, and author. She shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show “Rock Star: Supernova,” where despite having been eliminated in the week before the finale, Storm built a fan base that follows her around the world to this day. She was seen on the 2021 season of “America’s Got Talent.” Storm is author of Crazy Enough: A Memoir.
