Well, a mate of mine said " why talk about women in rock ?" I answered "why not?" .
Let's face it ..... women have excelled in rock ever since Janis Joplin hit the scenes.
C'mon let's give the ladies a hand of applause too :)
One of my fav rockin' ladies

Suzi Quatro was a pioneer. So was a woman who predates Janis…

sister Rosetta Tharp. She plays a mean blues guitar!

Yeah, Suzi was in the Pleasure Seekers with her sisters. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was the first lady to embrace the electric guitar and rock out up there with the men.
Great women indeed.

It’s hard to believe a black woman was rocking a mean ass blues guitar like that back in to 1940’s

Sometimes I think women need to take the lead in a way in music, but also in art, literature, culture, etc. 'Tis about time I think....and I say this as a male:).
I work in an all female office and I love it. We get along very well and I know the girls for a long time.....20 years....there are times when we fight and differ in our ideas, but basically there is max respect and no chauvinism.
I love all women :)

Memphis Minnie…..she has even been covered by Led Zeppelin.

her story is sad. She died in a nursing home and was buried in an unmarked grave. Bonnie Raitt gave her grave a headston.


here it is…..When The Levee Breaks
