Picture a rock musician in your head. Let me guess, it is a man. Figures. The sad simple truth is that we still have a tough time accepting the idea of a female rock musician. It is harder for all girl or female fronted bands to get record deals, large concert stages, radio play and press coverage. And when they do get coverage it is often more for their looks than for their musical chops.
Rock music has always been very sexist and this is unfortunate because the feelings and ideas expressed in rock are universal. And if there is any doubt the women can rock just look at all the great examples, Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Heart, Courtney Love and recently the Joy Formidable. Girls can bring it just as hard as boys.
