Condolences to family and friends of SANDY WEST, drummer for '70s band THE RUNAWAYS, who died SATURDAY of lung cancer at 47.
Fellow RUNAWAY JOAN JETT said of her bandmate, "I started The RUNAWAYS with SANDY WEST. We shared the dream of girls playing rock and roll. SANDY was an exuberant and powerful drummer. So underrated, she was the caliber of JOHN BONHAM. I am overcome by the loss of my friend. I always told her, 'We changed the world.'"
