Joan Jett Can Kick Your Ass!

Alright we are up and running again. Last week I went to the Joan Jett and the Blackhearts show at First Avenue and was blown away. Now, I haven't seriously sought out a Joan Jett record in many years but lately I've been hearing her stuff all over the place. (The added bonus was also seeing Eagles of Death Metal.) The Blackhearts were out promoting their new CD, Sinner. The music on Sinner is the real deal rock n' roll that Joan made famous over her thirty year career. Edgy rock driven by her definitive voice and guitar. When Joan walked on stage and kicked into Bad Reputation the crowd new they were in for something awesome. Sadly, they stopped after the first song to announce the death of former Runaways bandmate, Sandy West. Joan dedicated the Runaways hit, Cherry Bomb and the show to West. The next hour and half was filled with some of the tightest musicianship I've seen in awhile. Goes to show that you only get better with age.
