“Joan Jett to drive Scottsdale wild”,

Has it really been thirty years since Joan Jett asked us to put another dime in the jukebox baby because she loved rock and roll? Thirty six years since she ran away and told the world she was a ch-ch-ch-ch-ch cherry bomb? On Friday, July 6, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the Talking Stick Resort Ballroom in Scottsdale, fans can determine for themselves whether Joan Jett still maintains her bad reputation. The “Godmother of Punk” will appear with her band the Blackhearts that evening and perform songs from a career that has spawned eight platinum and gold albums and nine top 40 singles. … READ MORE

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts nominated for the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

JETTHEADS: The day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have been nominated for induction into the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

NBC Nightly News gave Joan top billing on tonight’s broadcast:

Vodpod videos no longer available.
msnbc video: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee…, posted with vodpod

From the Rock Hall’s official press release:

Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, who will select artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th Annual Induction Ceremony. To be eligible for nomination, an individual artist or band must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. The 2012 Nominees had to release their first recording no later than 1986.

All inductees are ultimately represented in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, the nonprofit organization that exists to educate its audiences on the global impact of the rock and roll art form via the museum, as well as its education programs and library and archives.

The 27th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held in Cleveland on Saturday, April 14, 2012. Leading up to the ceremony, the Museum will host 10 days of special events, including tours of the newly redesigned Museum, the unveiling of a major new exhibit, and the grand opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s new Library and Archives. The Library and Archives will be the world’s most comprehensive repository of written and audio-visual materials relating to the history of rock and roll.

Tables and VIP Packages for the 27th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony are available now. The ceremony will again be open to the public, as it was – for the first time in the event’s history – at the 2009 Inductions in Cleveland. Individual tickets for the Induction Ceremony will go on sale to the public in December 2011. Visit for details.

Read the rest HERE, including the artist bios. LOVE this quote from Joan in her bio:

“It’s a feeling thing, it’s emotion. You don’t think about it. If you start thinking rock ‘n’ roll, you’re f**ked. That’s when you’re homogenized. That’s when it’s boring. And that’s when it’s bullshit.”–Joan Jett

Congratulations to Joan Jett AND the Blackhearts, and to all nominees!
