The Pretty Reckless is a rock band consisting of Taylor Momsen (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Ben Phillips (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Damon (bass), and Jamie Perkins (drums). The original members of the band before line-up changes are Momsen and Phillips.
Momsen, an actress, found her passion for rock music after she was taken by her father to The White Stripes concert when she was just nine. "Before that, the only concert I'd been to was Britney Spears," she said. "But once I saw Jack White onstage, that was it. I grew up as a dancer and I thought you had to dance to be a girl in the music industry. Then I saw the White Stripes and I was like, 'No, you don't. I can do that.' "
