Joan Jett Quotes

Joan Jett Quotes: I remember times when I was at shows and the person onstage locked eyes with me. And in that moment, everything was right with the world.

Joan Jett Quote: If you are having trouble making a chord, get a book, that is how I learned. There are guitar tuning apps so you can tune your guitar, and just learn how to play along with your records. And it's great to be able to play along with another musician. That is like trial by fire.

Sayings about Joan Jett: Record stores are the backbone of the recorded music culture. It's where we go to network, browse around, and find new songs to love.

Sayings about Joan Jett: It's very tough to give advice because it's tough out there for everybody but for a girl it's even tougher, because I don't think the glass ceiling has changed at all in the past 30 years. Otherwise the radio would be covered with girl bands, or girls in bands, so I don't think much has changed on that level.

I'm sure there's a certain segment of writers who won't ever give me the time of day, hate me, don't get me, don't think I'm good, or whatever. I guess that's fine. It's only an opinion.

Joan Jett Quotes: I remember thinking that Janis Joplin sang like Mae West talked. When I first heard the primal scream in 'Piece Of My Heart,' I was hooked. 'Cheap Thrills,' Janis 'Live' with Big Brother And The Holding Company, was one of my all time faves.
