Gibson.com tapped Kim Fowley for his list of top L.A. guitarists, and Joan Jett comes in at #3:
3. Joan Jett
No, don’t cluck your tongues. Joan Jett is the female John Lennon/Keith Richards who has never quite gotten her due. I produced her with the Runaways and always thought she was a genius with a guitar. You know her sound anywhere, and she had that right from the start. Lead guitars get all the credit, but Joan is one of the best rhythm players in all of rock’n’roll.
