Joan Jett: Her Life Was Saved By Rock & Roll
Richard Gehr, Music & Sound Output, July 1988
IT FIGURES THAT JOAN JETT WOULD BE A BALTIMORE ORIOLES FAN. Like the Orioles, the three-chord rocknroll shes purveyed for more than a decade has been on a long losing streak for the past several years. Perhaps its being formatted out of existence, or maybe its simply heading for Nostalgia Citys Terminal Café. Whatever rocknrolls fate, its probably the only thing that truly matters to the former Baltimorean. And this way-bitchin babe in black hopes her new album, Up Your Alley (the reason we asked you all here), will drag it out of the cellar.
