Joan Jett Had Fun Writing With Dave Grohl
"I wanted to write with Dave for a while," she told Rolling Stone. "I think he's a great songwriter, but I don't think he does a lot of writing with people outside of the Foos. [It was] just the two of us … in the studio.
"He played the drums. I played the rhythm guitar, and I just kind of hummed the melody and sang the chorus. Then he went and put on some bass and lead guitar and rhythm guitar. It was a really fun thing."
Asked if she feels young women in rock and pop are in a better position today than they were in the mid '70s, when she first entered the business, Jett replied that nothing "has changed much at all." "I can't speak to the pop thing," she said, "[but] it seems to me it's pretty focused on the sexuality and making sure that's a big part of the presentation." more on this story
