Liner Note #6

Okay, C. had her say last time. My turn now. I have no politics or history to regale you with. Just COOL STUFF.

See The Runaways movie. ( . I was totally blown away by how Kristin Stewart IS Joan Jett. Holy crap. And I mean not just looks like her, sounds like her, but plays the fucking guitar like her. Yeah, of course that's what I would notice.

The closest I've come to having a crush on a woman ever was on Joan Jett. So you could kind of say my world turned upside down when she eventually came out as a lesbian, except of course that was the inside-out backwards world finally being righted. If anything, I'm a bigger fan now than before. Fuck yeah. I'm such a fanboy I'm following her on Twitter, even.

The Runaways should have been as big as the Sex Pistols. I guess two things really got in their way. 1) anti-female discrimination in the music biz, 2) Cherie Currie didn't actually die of a drug overdose. Harsh but true, bwana.

This reminds me. If you're ever in Cleveland, check out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . It's much cooler than I expected it to be. I thought it would be like "ohhh, look at Elvis's crotch stains," but actually it's kind of a museum about the real history of social movements in the modern United States. What reminded me of it is that when the museum inducted the Sex Pistols, they got back a scrawled handwritten reply that said something like "Fuck You and Your Establishment." Which was fitting. They have lots of cool stuff of the Ramones though, like handwritten letters between the Ramones (in NYC) and the Damned (in the UK) about crashing on each other's couches while on overseas tour. Can't make that kind of shit up.

OK, we now return you to the regularly scheduled recounting of my life. Oh, speaking of which, thank you to all the donors who really wanted a closer look at "that night." Cele really thought I was going to have trouble telling the details. And I admit, I did give her shit about whoring me out, but only because I knew she'd flip. She forgets as a rock musician I'm pretty much a whore anyway and so I'm way more used to that than she realizes. And let's face it, I'd rather discuss my private life with an appreciative and understanding audience than play, I dunno, Copacabana? (I'm trying to think of the worst cover song I ever had to play for money... that might have been it. Or maybe I've blocked the worst out of my memory.) Anyway, thanks. 

By the way, she's still got it!
