This singer has been doing her thing since the early ‘80s, as one of the first stars of the MTV video era. Her short, cropped hair and leather pants made her male fans swoon, and her female fans copied her look in droves. Ever see 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High?' Of course you have, so you know that there were several clones and wannabes dressing and acting like her.

As for her music? Well, let's just say she really knew how to hit you with her best shot. This singer, now 59, continues to tour and make music, backed by her guitar playing husband. The '80s were her heyday but she's still much loved by the classic rock world.
