Joan Jett originally started in a band called The Runaways, which did very well in Japan, but not in North America. Later, she recorded three songs with ex-Sex Pistols Paul Cook and Steve Jones. With the assistance of Kenny Laguna, Joan formed The Blackhearts with Gary Ryan on bass, Eric Abel (replaced shortly thereafter by Rick Byrd) on guitar, and Lee Crystal on drums. Her first major hit, entitled "I Love Rock'N'Roll" came out in December of 1981. During Joan's career, she's worked with the Sex Pistols, the Beach Boys, Paul Westerberg, L7 and Bikini Kill among others.
