On this day in 1958, the (second) Queen of Rock was born (no offence, but Suzi Quatro will always be the first Queen of Rock).
To celebrate her birthday and extensive music career, here are my personal favourite songs.
Change the world, (Sinner, 2006)
Bad Reputation (Bad Reputation, 1981)
Fake Friends (The Album, 1983)
Cherry Bomb (originally The Runaways, 1976 then Glorious results of a misspent youth 1984)
What an amazing career Joan Jett has had. I admire her guts and how she never gave up despite the vile abuse she got in the aftermath of the Runaways’ split in 1979. Not only has Joan Jett been an inspiration to female musicians, but also anyone with a dream and a passion. That’s amazing.
Happy birthday, Joan. Keep rocking!
