    I should have read this back when I watched Runaways Joan Jett is just about everything I want to be I think I will have to rewatch Runaways What a life I recommend watching Runaways, reading this, and watching her Bad Reputation documentary After this, it s going to be very hard to find a book to read while I fall asleep This filled my brain completely and left no room for stupid thoughts to keep me awake I was immersed in Jett s life and that kept my brain happily busy.

    Lots of great pictures here and interesting commentary from Joan, her producer, and Kathleen Hanna There are even some childhood photos included it s pretty weird to see Joan before she had black hair and a leather jacket The book is very well put together and artful, lending it the same feel of integrity that all of Joan s projects have Having recently seen the Runaways biopic, I found this book to be a good companion for that It sort of fills in the gap that I saw as a flaw in that movie Lots of great pictures here and interesting commentary from Joan, her producer, and Kathleen Hanna There are even some childhood photos included it s pretty weird to see Joan before she had black hair and a leather jacket The book is very well put together and artful, lending it the same feel of integrity that all of Joan s projects have Having recently seen the Runaways biopic, I found this book to be a good companion for that It sort of fills in the gap that I saw as a flaw in that movie, which was too much Cherie and not enough Joan Am I the only one wishing that movies of this type would forget the fragile blonde girl and focus on the tougher,interesting dark haired girl instead For starters, someone needs to go remake Grease as The Betty Rizzo Story Nothing against Olivia Newton John I do have much love for her but Stockard Channing s character is muchcomplex, interesting, and, in my opinion, smokin hot Similarly, Joan Jett went on to blaze trails for women in rock, yet the movie s main focus is Cherie Currie, whoor less falls off the map Admittedly, the movie was originally based on Currie s autobiography, but still, it s called The Runaways, not The Cherie Currie Story It seems logical that the movie s main focus would have been the member that went on to the greatest success So here s hoping that this book will inspire enough interest in Joan Jett s career that there will one day be a Runaways 2 The Joan Jett Story

    We know she loves rock n roll, but this beautiful book a combination photography collection and overview of Joan s life in her own words, tells us a lotabout the woman behind the myth Admittedly it s not hugely wordy but the impression we get is that she d rather be on stage rocking out than talking about her own life unlike many musicians we could name If you re a Runaways or Blackhearts fan, this is insdispensable even if you re just someone interested in iconic female musici We know she loves rock n roll, but this beautiful book a combination photography collection and overview of Joan s life in her own words, tells us a lotabout the woman behind the myth Admittedly it s not hugely wordy but the impression we get is that she d rather be on stage rocking out than talking about her own life unlike many musicians we could name If you re a Runaways or Blackhearts fan, this is insdispensable even if you re just someone interested in iconic female musicians, it s worth getting hold of Put another dime in the jukebox, Joanie

    I can t get enough of this book about the greatest female rocker out there bar none I can still remember seeing the video for Jett s cover of Crimson and Clover as a sexually confused preteen What a life changer And there s my idol on every page completely herself, in every striking photograph and the scribbled reminiscence I m amazed and grateful that she made it There s something so lovely about the fact that this book was conceived as a loving tribute from a gay icon Todd Oldham to I can t get enough of this book about the greatest female rocker out there bar none I can still remember seeing the video for Jett s cover of Crimson and Clover as a sexually confused preteen What a life changer And there s my idol on every page completely herself, in every striking photograph and the scribbled reminiscence I m amazed and grateful that she made it There s something so lovely about the fact that this book was conceived as a loving tribute from a gay icon Todd Oldham to a lesbian icon Jett Rock on, brothers and sisters

    What A Badass Record label won t sign her bc she s in an all chic band Too bad, she starts her own labelShe scraped money together, took long drives to and from shows to save money, sold cds out of her car, she was deep in the scene and made it happen through sheer willpower The book is great bc it s part photography and part storytelling so it was really engaging to sit down and go through, i then listened to all her albums including with the Runaways, just awesome raw energy at exact What A Badass Record label won t sign her bc she s in an all chic band Too bad, she starts her own labelShe scraped money together, took long drives to and from shows to save money, sold cds out of her car, she was deep in the scene and made it happen through sheer willpower The book is great bc it s part photography and part storytelling so it was really engaging to sit down and go through, i then listened to all her albums including with the Runaways, just awesome raw energy at exactly the right time for America to hear it

    Okay, I love Joan Jett Let s just get that out there Her poster was on my wall when I was 17 and I thought she was just plain bad ass She still is This book has an amazing array of photo s that redeem how little it actually contains about Joan s life There are facts and a few interesting musical stories, but Joan shares nothing personal or intimate So you finish feeling like you knew nothingthan you did when you started The pics alone make it worth the 4 stars though Now I think I Okay, I love Joan Jett Let s just get that out there Her poster was on my wall when I was 17 and I thought she was just plain bad ass She still is This book has an amazing array of photo s that redeem how little it actually contains about Joan s life There are facts and a few interesting musical stories, but Joan shares nothing personal or intimate So you finish feeling like you knew nothingthan you did when you started The pics alone make it worth the 4 stars though Now I think I need to go put on the Yellow Album

    If you like the punk rock of late 70 s or early 80 s and fierce women rockers you ll enjoy going back in time with the history of Joan Jett and the Runaways It took me back and now my vinyl has been playing I give this a higher rating due to the awesome photos and of course, the story was interesting as well.
