A rare breed that DOES exist, but is often grossly misrepresented and the term frivolously and wrongly used.
True rock chicks in the 21st century are nearly impossible to find unless you search underground, where they create and play music in bands you've never heard of in places you'd never think of going unless you, yourself, also happen to be a true rocker or an open-minded music hobbyist. Despite being obscure in this way, there are many talented rock chicks in this hidden rock&roll playground who play their instruments well, belt a tune amazingly, and make you move and groove like any band with a penis.
Good examples of rock chicks include but are not limited to: Heart; Bassist D'arcy Wretzky of The Smashing Pumpkins; Lead guitarist of The Runways Nancy Wilson; Guitarist Orianthi who Carlos Santana himself once stated that, were he to pass the torch to any guitarist in the world, she would be it. Because of this he has endorsed her. Drummer Vox Peggy O'Neill of the garage punk band The Gories; Lead singer of Jefferson Airplane Grace Slick; Guitarist Great Kat (aka Katherine Thomas)-- who is known for her extremely technical shredding. Also the ultimate, perhaps most widely acknowledged female rocker to date: Janis Joplin.
Another thing worth noting is Rolling Stone's 2003 Greatest Guitarists of All Time; Joni Mitchell and Joan Jett were listed as two of the most talented rock guitarists in history. Not surprisingly, they were the only females to make the list.
Chris and I went to a show the other day at (insert obscure dive bar/venue where only true rockers and open-minded musical hobbyists choose to go) and saw this really hot rock chick who played the guitar like a pro.
Yeah man, rock chicks are sexy but you rarely ever see 'em.
