Rock band L7 will not play as scheduled tonight at Bogart's in Long Beach because of an injury to band member Suzi Gardener. Slash Records publicist Sharon Liveten said Gardner, a singer-guitarist for the Los Angeles band, was hit on the head Wednesday night by a falling crane while shooting a video for the song "Pretend We're Dead" in a Culver City sound studio. Gardner was hospitalized with a concussion and a broken cheekbone, but "she's going to be OK," Liveten said.

Along with their more publicized, coquettish counterparts, "tough-girl" performers have always been part of rock 'n' roll's legacy--from beehive-topped, gum-snapping pioneers the Shangri-Las, on through Janis Joplin, Patti Smith, Suzi Quatro and Joan Jett. The insurgent essence of the music often breeds strong-willed women who refuse to tart up their image, whose in-your-face music and appearance is more grease than glamour.

July 28, 1991 | JONATHAN GOLD, Jonathan Gold writes regularly for The Times.
"You rock!" is the highest compliment you can pay any band member younger than 30. And "You rock!" means roughly this: "You are capable of making me forget everything but the overweening need to shake my long hair in front of my eyes." Rock , the verb--as opposed to rock , the noun, which is what they used to play on KMET--has something to do with volume and feedback and aggression and a steady, idiot-simple beat.
