All of us have our personal style icons, personal motivators that influence us in everything from what we wear to how we walk, talk and face the world every day. This week, I wanted to salute some of the greatest female legends of rock and roll, the women who have influenced me my entire life.
The list is long, and yet it’s not long enough. I left out the women of the 90’s and the 00’s, I only included one from the 60’s (there was no way Grace Slick wouldn’t make this list,) and there’s no one on the list who I would consider a pop star (I love you, Madonna, I really do.)
Nope, these are women who ripped out the guitars, banged on the drums, howled into the microphones, and gave the gents a run for their money. From Joan Jett to Blondie, from Pat Benatar to Tina Turner to my beloved Stevie Nicks, these are my rock and roll goddesses. You’ll recognize some other favorites in here: Linda Ronstadt, Heart, Annie Lennox, Aretha Franklin, Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders, etc. Let their spirit motivate us to go forth and rock out this week. It’s Monday, let’s get motivated to kick some ass this week.
And with that, I’m off to the gym. 🙂
