One of the best birthday memories I have is when I went to see The Who on their American tour. I think it was 1982. And I went to see the first show in D.C., and before the show I went backstage to say hello to the band. Roger Daltry just walks in the room and says, ‘Oh, I hear it’s your birthday,’ drops to his kness with his arms spread out, and belts out ‘Happy Birthday’. You know, I was pretty blown away.
Happy Birthday Joan fuckin’ Jett (September 22nd)
