Peaches Admires Joan Jett

Outspoken singer PEACHES cites seventies legend JOAN JETT as her role model, because she helped give women a place in rock.

The TEACHES OF PEACHES star was first inspired by the I LOVE ROCK AND ROLL singer to test her talents in the music arena, because Jett's band THE RUNAWAYS proved women could excel in a predominately male industry.

Peaches - real name MERRIL NISKER - enthuses, "Joan Jett was the first person to inspire me to pick up a guitar and just go for it.

"The Runaways were the greatest all-girl band ever and Joan Jett is still very cool.

"We e-mail each other from time to time."
