2013 Honoree Joan Jett on Her Sunset Strip Glory Days
Thursday August 1 the 2013 Sunset Strip Music Festival kicks off by honoring the iconic rock goddess with a VIP tribute ceremony at the House of Blues West Hollywood (tickets available here).
In advance of what is it be proclaimed “Joan Jett Day” by the City of West Hollywood, the iconic rock goddess spoke to LA Weekly about the integral role the Sunset Strip has played in her life:
August 1 is Joan Jett day in West Hollywood. What does all this mean to you?
I grew up on the strip, played there and for a while lived just off of it. It’s definitely a big part of my life in a lot of ways. It was tough you know. It was a lot of fun but it was difficult on some levels to be taken seriously. So, to come sort of full circle, it’s kind of humbling and definitely a real honor.
