When talking about ‘rock stars’, the cliché tends to be male and incredibly cool, with drug problems, groupies, and electric guitars aimed at the establishment like weapons. However, the fact that already in the early days of rock ‘n’ roll, from the mid-1950s, women were swapping the home and petticoat for a life ‘on the road’ – that they were rocking the stages and mastering the ‘growl’ – has been successfully suppressed from the collective memory.
The film ROCK CHICKS – THE UNTOLD STORY (WT) sets out searching for historical traces in the USA and tells the stories of women in rock’n’roll.
