Description

She's been named the queen of rock & roll and rockabilly, the first woman in rock, even the prototypical riot grrl. She was a bad-ass woman hitting stages and putting a swivel in her hips back when even a male like Elvis doing so was considered to be an omen of the end of civilization. Jackson is often remembered for her close ties to the king of rock & roll himself, Elvis Presley, not surprising in a business where, even after 50 years, women have yet to fully earn their due. In recent years Jackson has enjoyed something of a resurgence, and with her long-overdue induction to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, the long historical oversight is finally being corrected.
