Long before Katy Perry extolled the virtues of kissing a girl, Joan Jett—born Joan Marie Larkin in Wynnewood in 1958—made it OK for women to get raunchy on the radio with her cover of Gary Glitter’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me.” And Jett proved that bad girls could make big noise with her influential ’70s band the Runaways. Next up for Jett: steady touring behind a recently released greatest hits package, and if there’s any justice, maybe a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
