Joan Jett was and continues to be one of the hardest playing and hardest working musicians in rock. The fact that she was a pioneer for women to be considered serious players in the rock world is only one of her many accomplishments. Today, in her 50s, she continues to play and write and music that is quintessential rock and roll. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with prolific author DAVE THOMPSON about his new biography: BAD REPUTATION: THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY OF JOAN JETT. Tune in and learn about Jett’s early days in the Runaways and how the Black Hearts eventually came to be.
