In 1977, Joan Jett and Kim Fowley were two of the people who sat down with Tom Snyder on his Tomorrow Showprogram to discuss the then-current state of punk rock music. This is a great glimpse into what Joan was dealing with back then.
THIS is what Kristen Stewart is trying to embody. I think Kristen’s voice is a little deeper than Joan’s was back then, but that’s OK.
Kim Fowley is the one in the orange jacket and all the glam makeup. He’s definitely a character, isn’t he?
(By the way, if you like the Peaches t-shirt that Joan is wearing, you can order it from WornFree.com HERE.)
Holiday shopping season is upon us, Jettheads! If you’re sick of getting Pat Benatar t-shirts from your near-sighted (yet well-meaning) relatives, then send them the link to this post to give them some new ideas for you.
