The 70’s rock band The Runaways helped pave the way for female artists of today like Madonna and Lady Gaga. The LA-based band was the first all-girl group to be signed to a major label and tour the world. Evelyn McDonnell’s “Queens of Noise: The Real Story of The Runaways” tells just that—the real and complete story of the band that stirred up controversy with their sometimes provocative displays of sexuality on stage. McDonnell says her recount of The Runaways’ history is one that’s full of California tales, teenage angst and feminist fables.
