Who are the top 5 women who paved the way for women in rock?

My choices would be:

1. Janis Joplin
2. Patti Smith
3. Ann & Nancy Wilson of Heart
4. Joan Jett both in the Runaways with Lita Ford and solo
5. Stevie Nicks both in Fleetwood Mac and solo

LOL!!!!!!!


I'd say Melissa Auf Der Maur!!!


Sheryl Crow has had potential in my opinion but she's wasting her talent on radio-friendly pop-shit...

Songs like "My favorite mistake" and "A Different kind" - I like them very much but there's too much shit on her albums too...

Pat Benatar and Kate Bush. I dont dig all of Kate's music but she has got a few songs that are out of this world. Pat Benatar was/is a sensational Female Rock singer.

Pat Benatar
Kate Bush
Suze Demarchi
Whoever that chick was that sang "Baby its you"
Whoever thay chick was that sang with Meatloaf (Elen Foley ?)

Dang, how could I forget Benatar and Bush? I would've placed them over Nicks any day, especially Bush.
Gotta love those "hounds of love".

Wendy Williams! "W.O.W." from '84, produced by Gene Simmons is the BEST one even though I have a co-worker who thinks "maggots" is the best.
Dang, I shoulda upped the choices to 10 most influential women.

No, I'm afraid not because their hubby's were the ones that wrote the music. If Bjorn and Benny married other women, they'd just get the fame themselves.

Tina Turner & Janis are mainstays....

I like the Wilson sisters, and Lita and Stevie Nicks...and a few one hit wonders......

But my personal #1 favorite is GRACE SLICK

Johnette Napolitano

Singer/Bassists/Songwriter for Concrete Blonde

Can sing as ballsy as any man, and as sexy as any woman.

Influenced alot of second rate shit like those bitches that sang "what's going on" late 80's.

Great lyics and voice.
And a hard drinking bitch too.

Thats a good list. Anyone here ever heard Suze Demarchi sing? She's got a great female Rockvoice. (She married Nuno BettenCherone or whatever the fuck his name is)

I heard a rumour that she is going to be the new singer for INXS...

Valerie Bertinelli - for all the wrong reasons!!

Read her book if you must and it is all there. She got Ed to 'man up' and stand up to Dave, which wasn't actually standing up to Dave but icing him out, causing Dave to R-U-N-N-O-F-T (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=r-u-n-n-o-f-t). We still live with the consequences today, with Dave relegated to making Roth Show videos 'cos Ed calls all the shots (which, most of the time, means nothing happens).

Maybe Dave should have manned up and knocked some sense into him. From now on she's Yoko Bertinelli.
