JOAN JETT Book by Todd Oldham

Another really great book we received is the Joan Jett Book by Todd Oldham.  It covers her life story from birth to present day, chronicling her music career and a little bit of her early family life.  It talks mostly about the Runaways, her early influences, her solo career, album production, songwriting, touring with her band The Blackhearts, and her guitar sound and technique.  LOTS of pictures throughout--some have never been published before, epehmera (such as hand written song lyrics), and excerpts from 30 years of interviews.  Includes a forward from Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill.  This book pays true homage to the goddess of rock and roll, Joan Jett, who continues to inspire rock fans today.
