Don'r forget, as Cherie said on the red carpet, the TRUE STORY is in her book, so we'll see. It seems extremely thoughtless of them to not give some sort of update at the end of the movie, on all the (real) members. I mean, it's THE RUNAWAYS. A group. Not just Joan & Cherie. (For it being based on Cherie's story, Joan sure seems to be the focus.)
I've never been a big fan of "lets wrap things up with the credits / where are they now approach", seems a bit dated to me. I mean casual movie goers that arn't going to be buying The Runaways records after this movie just wont care, and it wont take long for new fans of the band to find out what has happend to the rest (Runaways.com).

I found this and it's an interview and Joan talks about Sandy, and this is what she said about her:
Wistfully, Jett wishes Runaways drummer Sandy West, who died of cancer in 2006 and who gets short shrift in “The Runaways,” were here to see the movie “because she was the one who wanted the Runaways to get back together and do a reunion tour and all that stuff. She would have been so proud. The movie maybe would have taken a slightly different, more expanded, role if she were alive.”
