Joan Jett & The Blackhearts Are Performing In SW Louisiana
Joan Jett & The Heartbreakers are coming to SWLA later this month to rock your face off for one night only.
Joan Marie Larkin, aka Joan Jett, was born on September 22, 1958 in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. She got her first guitar at the age of 13. Joan started taking guitar lessons soon after but quit because the instructor only wanted to teach her folk songs. Her family moved to California while she was in middle school. Later in High School, at the age of 16, Joan helped found the band The Runaways. The band broke up in 1979 and she started her solo career.
The beginning of Joan's solo career was rocky. Even though The Runaways were popular in Europe and Canada they never gained success in the USA. Joan's solo debut album was rejected by 23 record labels before she and her producer Kenny Laguna started their own independent record label, Blackheart Records, and the rest is history.
