Talk about dreams coming true! This weekend at Beale Street Music Fest I had the opportunity to introduce a real rock and roll hero..Ms. Joan Jett. THE pioneer of female rock and an inspiration for all musicians, Joan tore down the Orion stage with The Blackhearts! She has two Memphis folks as a part of her crew, Ed (tour manager) and Brandon (tech). A big thanks to Joan and band, Ed and her entire crew for being so accommodating!

Our local bands repped Mtown to the fullest (see below). Speaking of local bands, here I am reppin' Memphis own River City Tanlines with Joan! I hope to see RCT's Alicja Trout perform with Joan one day! Two true queens of noise who continue to set the precedent for rock!


Joan telling the guys in Wolfmother how bad ass their show was right after gettin' off stage! Talk about a compliment-doesn't get better than that! A real special rock moment!
