(Joan Jett rocking with a LB SURF sticker on her guitar)
Long Beach resident and iconic rock star Joan Jett will soon be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is much deserved and well over due. Many of you know her famous songs such as I hate myself for loving you, I love Rock and Roll and also the Freaks and Geeks theme- Bad Reputation. So many hits… the list just goes on….
Here is little more on her induction [LINK], which not only includes Joan Jett, but the Blackhearts as well.
Don’t forget to watch her music video for Change The World which was filmed on the Franklin Blvd boardwalk back in 2006 [LINK]:
Check out this photo of legend rocker Joan Jett proudly representing Long Beach, specifically LB Surf (70 w Park Ave, Long Beach, NY). Does anybody know if she still lives or maintains a place in Long Beach? I used to hear about her Starbucks sightings, but that was years ago.
Speaking of which, this video has been around before, but for those who haven’t seen it, here is Joan Jett performing “Change the World” on the old Franklin Blvd boardwalk: youtu.be/eolh0NJ5q2o
