About the Artist
Joan Jett had dreams of being a rock
star from early on in her life and was given her first guitar at the age of 14. She began taking guitar lessons but quit after
her teacher tried to make her learn folk songs... Joan was intent on rocking right from the start. In the early Seventies
her family moved from Rockville, Maryland to Los Angeles, California and it was here that she would really be given the opportunity
to pursue her rock star dreams. She and her friend, drummer Sandy West recruited Lita Ford, Jackie Fox, and Cheri Currie to
form the punk band The Runaways in 1975. The band enjoyed more success internationally than at home in the United States and
released five albums from 1975 through 1979 with Joan Jett singing on the group's last two albums after singer Cherie Currie
left the band. After the breakup of The Runaways, Joan Jett decided to pursue a solo career and went to England to record
a few demos in 1979. Shortly thereafter she returned back to Los Angeles and formed Joan Jett and the Blackhearts after placing
an ad in L.A. Weekly. This band has gone on to release ten studio albums: I Love Rock 'n' Roll, Album, Glorious Results of
a Misspent Youth, Good Music, Up Your Alley, Notorious, Pure and Simple, Naked, Sinner, and 2013's Unvarnished. Fortunately
for lovers of rock music everywhere, Joan Jett continues to tour and record music.
had Achieved some success with The Runaways, but it was not until she started her solo career that things began to really
take off. Her experience with The Runaways gained her a lot of notoriety in the punk community and right after the band broke
up she was able to go to England to work on some songs with Paul Cooke and Steve Jones, formerly of The Sex Pistols. While
there she recorded a demo cover of I Love Rock 'n' Roll by Arrows. Upon returning to Los Angeles and forming Joan Jett and
the Blackhearts she re-recorded the song and put it on her debut album of the same name. The song became a massive hit and
was at the number one spot on the charts for seven straight weeks.
