Sandy West – ‘The Runaways’
Today we honor Sandy West, drummer for 'The Runaways' she lost her battle with cancer on this day back in 2006. As a girl who grew up playing the drums always loved what 'The Runaways' were about. At just 15 Sandy met Joan Jett and formed 'The Runaways'.
"Cherry Bomb" was also ranked 52nd on VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs
Their version of Velvet Underground's song.
From 1977's Queen of Noise, who doesn't like to play with fire every once in awhile?
According to Jett, the lyrics of the song concern "a girl wanting to become a star knowing that you can become one."
Written by Joan Jett, she always said the crowd loved this one.
