Joan Jett, DIY Pioneer

A friend sent this to me today out of the blue. As it happens, I’m going to see Girl in a Coma tonight, a trio of badass Latinas out of San Antonia, TX, who are signed to Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records. Jett was not only one of the women trailblazers in rock ‘n’ roll, she also macheted her own path to recording success. After 23 major labels turned her down, she launched her own, Blackheart Records, and went on to a global hit with “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”. An inspiring true life story for indie bands everywhere.
