I Love Rock N' Roll

I Love Rock N' Roll


by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts


Todd Oldham: Joan Jett (2010)

The first serious Joan Jett biography is heavy on pictures and light on new information about the legendary rocker, but that's not too surprising for a celebrity biography that is partially promoting a film (the 2010 biopic "The Runaways").

Mina Carson, Tina Lewis, Susan Shaw: Girls Rock: Fifty Years of Women Making Music (2004)

The opening chapter of this book features Joan Jett and the Runaways talking about their experiences as an all-girl rock get-up in the 1970s.
