Right-wing American rock idiot Ted Nugent got furious when he found out that he didn’t made the Rolling Stone Magazine list of the ‘100 Greatest Guitarists’, while Joan Jett did.
Once an asshole, always an asshole..
Once a genuine rocker, always a genuine rocker…
Legendary rocker JOAN JETT about feminism…

AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan And T. Rex is a tribute compilation project realized by the late Saturday Night Live music producer Hal Willner who spent years working on it with several big names covering T.REX songs, the immensely popular and influential (then and now) 60s glam act led by the great, late rock icon Marc Bolan.
The compilation features Nick Cave, Devendra Banhart, Father John Misty, Perry Farrell, Lucinda Williams, and U2 with Elton John and several other stars. The release was announced in April, a few weeks after, Willner died, unfortunately, of coronavirus.
JOAN JETT also picked a T.Rex classic, 1971 hit JEEPSTER. Her version is faithful to the original. Pretty cool, but I wished she had injected the jangly glam and glitter jingle with some ‘I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll’ energy, black leather swagger, and tons of guitar decibels. But
