Which would certainly be justice done were it to happen, since today any female rocker—and many a male—that steps on a stage, puts their foot on a monitor, and belts out a rough and impassioned tune owes a size able debt to Genya Ravan. And though she may not have Courtney Love’s bank account, after all she’s been through the singer seems happy enough just to be here to share her gifts and experiences. “After cancer and everything else, I really appreciate life more. I try to be a better person,” she says. “Whenever I feel afraid to try something new, I ask myself this: ‘If not now, when?’”

Genya Ravan hosts “Chicks & Broads” on the first Friday of every month at 10pm and “Goldie’s Garage” on the third Friday of every month at 9pm on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Little Steven’s Underground Garage Channel 25. www.genyaravan.com.
