She don't give a damn about her bad reputation.

Recently someone came into The Studio and asked for the 'Joan Jett' guitar sound. That was an easy request for me, as I have worshiped the guitar tones on her records.

I once met Ricky Bird (Guitar on the mega selling 'I Love Rock and Roll' record), and all I could muster was something like; "Awesome tone on that record, dude".

"Yeah", He said.

Fucking A Right.

That sound kills, and he knows it, I know it, and you fucking know it.

Joan Jett knows it.

Joan Jett is Rock and Roll. Just listen to any song on either of the first two Blackheart records. She simply kicks ass first, asks questions later.

I have seen Joan and the Blackhearts live twice. Once back in 82, when she was on top of the charts, and last year, when she wasn't.

Same woman.

She's an absolute, a constant in a world of musical entropy, and she should be worshipped as the God of Rock that she indeed truly is.

Because after all:

"I don't give a damn
'Bout my reputation
I've never been afraid of any deviation
An' I don't really care if ya think I'm strange
I ain't gonna change
An' I'm never gonna care
'Bout my bad reputation"

Woah no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Not me, me, me, me, me, me, me..........

I do fuckin' know it!
I used to have a crush on her when she did the song "Do Ya Wanna Touch Me"...that was before I realized she'd probably like my sister better.
I know this is the wrong spot but I wanna know about the next Tedstock! Cheers,

I might do another 'Stock' but it won't be a TEDSTOCK - that's a once in a lifetime event. Wish you coulda been there Mark.
