Biography


Joan Jett is a true American original. While still in her early teens, Joan, often called "the girl Elvis", founded the seminal all-girl rock group, The Runaways, whose hits such as "Cherry Bomb" made them an international sensation. She became the first woman in rock to own her own record label, Blackheart Records. There, her next group, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, became a staple in the Top 10 charts and claims the #28 song of all time, "I Love Rock n' Roll", which was number 1 on the Billboard charts for two months after 23 major record labels refused to give her a deal.

Joan starred in the Paul Schrader film Light Of Day, with Michael J. Fox, Jason Miller, Gena Rowlands, and Michael McKean. She appeared in Boogie Boy, an independent film by Pulp Fiction alums Craig Hamann and Roger Avary. Her "bad guy" credits include playing an evil immortal in the Highlander television series, and she played a contract killer and reached a pinnacle in action film when she got to fight a martial-arts battle to the death with the legendary Chuck Norris.
