Queens of Noise
Recently took this rock book out from the library.
It's from 2013 and it's dedicated "For Sandy".
I'm assuming the author, Evelyn McDonnell is referring to Sandy West who is pictured right in the middle, next to Lita Ford and Joan Jett. West passed away in 2006.
There's some cool pics in this book along with some crazy, rock 'n roll stories.
It's interesting to note that manager Kim Fowley, of "Alley Oop" fame, put The Runaways together and purposely compromised the all girl band of California teenagers. If you're into rock 'n roll books, Queens of Noise is a great rock 'n roll read.
Here's a pic of Joan Jett and Lita Ford rockin' out...
The nucleus of The Runaways was Joan Jett and Sandy West, pictured below.
