To give tribute to Joan Jett this week seemed like a great idea to me since her latest CD, Unvarnished came out on September 30th! That is why I decided to write my review on the book, Joan Jett by Todd Oldman, which came out in 2010. It gives an easy to read view of the life of Joan Jett growing up and becoming the awesome rock star she is now. The best part about this book is the fact that it has colorful pictures showing a young Joan with family and photos of her with both of her bands, The Runaways, and The Blackhearts. Actually this book is filled with more pictures than words. As a huge fan of hers, I enjoyed these flashbacks of her life. Some of them include pictures that I was in awe of. These include pictures of handwritten lyrics from the 70’s.
So if you are a fan of Joan Jett’s I would say if you have not already, get a copy of this book. Don’t forget her new CD as well.
