Here's How Much Joan Jett's Really Worth

The rockstar Joan Jett has had an illustrious career. Famous for her rock 'n' roll anthems like "Bad Reputation" and "Cherry Bomb," Jett has been making and performing music for over 45 years. Jett began playing guitar at the age of 13 and formed her first group, the Runaways, just two years later at the age of 15. After releasing five albums in four years, the Runaways disbanded in 1979. Jett went to England to pursue a solo career, and she released her self-titled solo debut in 1980, according to Biography

However, Jett ultimately decided she needed a band behind her. Jett and her producer, Kenny Laguna, placed a classified ad in the paper, saying they were "looking for three good men," per the Irish Times. The group Joan Jett & the Blackhearts was formed in 1980. The original band was made up of guitarist Ricky Byrd, Gary Ryan as the bassist, and Lee Crystal on the drums, with Jett as the frontwoman.

In addition to her musical accomplishments, Jett has also appeared or voice acted in dozens of films and TV episodes. She currently lives in Long Beach, New York, and continues to act, tour and perform.
