Keeping track of the ever-expanding number of summer music festivals just got a little more difficult, thanks to the folks at LivingSocial. The location-based deals website is organizing its own event, dubbed the Backyard Festival, and they're busily lining up an impressive list of performers.
With a new album, 'Living Like a Runaway', that was released today (June 19), Lita Ford is thinking of the future. However, there is one aspect of her past that she recently confronted. She ended her long-running feud with Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, with whom she was in the Runaways from 1975-1979.
Just a few days after joining Joan Jett on stage at Madison Square Garden for a surprise performance of her classic hit 'Bad Reputation,' the Foo Fighters reunited with the rock icon on last night's 'Late Show with David Letterman.'
The all-star combo treated the studio audience to another fiery run-through of 'Bad Reputation,' with Jett in fine voice and the Foos thrashing through the song like their lives depended on it. Take a look at this clip from the show and try to keep from wondering what it might sound like if Jett put the Blackhearts on hold to record an entire album with Dave Grohl and company:
Upset that you missed out on seeing the Foo Fighters join Joan Jett at Madison Square Garden for a surprise rendition of her song 'Bad Reputation' over the weekend? Not to worry -- David Letterman has you covered.
Jett will reunite with the Foos on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' tonight to deliver a 'Bad Reputation' encore. It's admittedly not quite the same as seeing the original event unfold onstage at the Garden, but if you're a fan of either act, you won't want to miss this.
Notoriously, Joan Jett, the original “riot grrrl,” has had a bad reputation for many years....before she even wrote the song of that same name! But did you hear the one about that time she almost kicked Rush's ass? She talks about that and a few other things in a wide-ranging interview with The Morton Report.
Founding Runaways guitarist Joan Jett and singer Cherie Currie are suing to stop the release of an album set to pay homage to the '70s all-girl rock band. The disc, 'Take It or Leave It: A Tribute to the Queens of Noise' is set to come out on June 28.
