"Sandy West, drummer for 1970s female punk rock band the Runaways, has died after a long battle with lung cancer.
West, 47, died Saturday in a hospice in San Dimas, Calif., a spokesman said. A private funeral will be held Saturday.
The Runaways, perhaps best known for the tune "Cherry Bomb" from their self-titled 1976 debut, served as a launching pad for the solo careers of guitarists Joan Jett and Lita Ford.
West is survived by her mother, stepfather and six sisters.
