Rolling Stone has a preview of Joan’s “Bad Reputation” performance on Friday’s Guitar Center Sessions episode. I LOVE all of these performances, but I am DYING to see this interview! The show is an entire hour long. I will go nuts if I have to wait a full year to see it. (I get the AXS network, but I don’t have DirecTV, so I won’t get it the same time everyone else does.)
From Rolling Stone:
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts serve up a rousing performance of her 1981 anthem, “Bad Reputation” as part of her appearance on this week’s Guitar Center Sessions on DirecTV. In addition to chatting with host Nic Harcourt, Jett mixed classics with material from her new album, Unvarnished, as part of her appearance, which runs December 6th at 9 p.m. EST and 10 p.m. PST on DirecTV’s Audience Network (Channel 239).
“Joan was very forthright in our conversation, which made for an exceptionally intriguing interview,” Harcourt tells Rolling Stone. “That direct quality is not unlike her music. She is uncompromising in everything she does – rock & roll through and through.”
