Happy birthday, Joan Jett!

91842__joan_lPessimists might take news of Joan Jett’s 48th birthday as a glum reminder of time’s relentless march. But optimists would point out that age hasn’t slowed Jett one bit — as this recent clip of her performing ”Riddles,” from her excellent Sinner disc, clearly demonstrates. Either way, though, doesn’t the woman who so memorably recorded ”I Love Rock N’ Roll,” ”Cherry Bomb,” and three decades of hooktastic rock music deserve some hot haiku action on her big day? The answer, of course, is yes. So get writing!

    Happy Birthday Joan! Don’t change a thing, you’re NEVER TOO OLD TO ROCK!!!!

  • Jenny

    I am not too old to rock honey! Rock is my type of music. Just because I think she can use something different to wear does not mean I don’t know how to party. When you assume, you make an Ass out of you and me.

    The Saturday Night Special
    in love with rock and roll
    has a voice that explodes
    like a cherry bomb.
    Her riffs cannot beat AC/DC’s
    but her music always sees
    the light of day with bad reputation.
    Now do you wanna touch that?
    Say oh yeah!

  • thwarted

    Time to make a quick stop at
    the ol’ Virgin store

  • bp

    Darn you Stephanie, I hadn’t gotten “do you wanna touch” stuck in my head in over 20 years. Now, it’s prominently back in there and I’m going to have to download that catchy azzed tune and listen to it about a gadjillion times (again) before I can get it out…
    Do you wanna touch -Yeah
    do you wanna touch -yeah
    Dannng that’s so catchy! Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah! yeahyeahyeah!

    I wouldn’t mind the bikini top if she could fill it out. She needs breast augmentation.
