Joan Jett Still Rocks

The best description of Joan Jett ever penned (and from the very uncool NY Times no less):

In the 1980’s, when she ruled Top 40 radio, Joan Jett was the perfect embodiment of rock’s primal qualities. She was young, cocky, sexy, rebellious and knew how to rock a pair of leather pants.

(Rahav Segev for The New York Times)
Somehow she just doesn’t seem pathetic like so many of the other aging rockers do. I had free tickets to go see Bow Wow Wow a couple of years ago, and the lead singer, who used to be in that ‘sensual’ rock star class, was…erm. Well, let’s just say I expected her minivan to join her on stage.
I really hope the Blackhearts come to Boston…
