  1. Well shes earned it. Wish for her it was more. But then with her its always been about the music.Saw her live opening for the Who back in the 80s at the Tangarine Bowl in Orlando florida. I fell head over heals in with her she was badass tight leather tight band and the guts to throw it all the fans who came to see the Who. The audiance up front was very disrespectful of her they threw all kinds of crap at her. But she stayed right there and played her set. I was very proud of her for that. I would like some day to meet her so I could tell how impressed I was with her performance. Long live rock and long live Joan Jett.
