Women who rocked: Betty Blowtorch
Betty Blowtorch was a hard-rock band formed in 1998. They had an awesome sound, strongly reminiscent of Joan Jett, especially in her Blackhearts' years. Sadly, they only put out one studio album, Are you Man Enough, before the tragic death of their lead singer in a car crash in 2001. Another album, including rarities and live songs, was released later as Last Call. A movie was made about the band, Betty Blowtorch and her Amazing Adventures. More info here.
Women rockers are few and far between. I've found a few really good ones lately, including In This Moment and Otep, but Betty Blowtorch is one I particularly like, because Joan Jett and the Blackhearts is a classic favorite of mine.
How about you, my readers? Any great women rockers to recommend? Leave your comments!
