Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

When: Wed., Dec. 18, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Former Rolling Stone editor and renowned rock writer Dave Marsh once described singer Joan Jett as “the female Chuck Berry." It’s an apt description. Jett’s career began with the punk-y all-girl rock combo the Runaways and then she capitalized on that experience with her 1981 solo album, Bad Reputation, which delivered radio hits such as "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" and "Crimson and Clover,” a cover of the Tommy James tune. Her raspy voice has become her trademark and she’s in good form on her new album, Unvarnished, which just came out this fall, making her the perfect person to inaugurate the new stage at the Hard Rock Rocksino.
