I love rock ‘n’ roll.
And I still love Joan Jett.
Earlier today I saw that it was Joan Jett’s 56th birthday. I believe it is her day, but I don’t believe the black-haired sprite will ever be a day over 26, which is roughly the age she was when I conducted this telephone interview with her on December 23, 1983.

On that day, the former Runaway was still high atop her profession following the back-to-back mega-success of her solo album, Bad Reputation, and her first project with The Blackhearts, I Love Rock n’ Roll.
She was one of the first women to strap on a guitar and rock as hard and loud as any of the fellas.
In this conversation, a very energized Joan Jett speaks to me about the depression she felt after leaving The Runaways, which she helped start at the tender age of 15. She told me about producing an album by LA’s punk band The Germs. And she talked about the lucky day she met Kenny Laguna and how they formed The Blackhearts. (Laguna can even be heard late in the chat, bragging about what a genius he is!)
And Joan — if you ever want to catch me up on the last 30 years, you’re more than welcome here.
