Happy 60th birthday to this goddess amongst women. No one has the drive and passion, nor rocks harder than @joanjett. From starting the first all girl rock band, being the original "riot grrl," starting her own record company (Blackheart Records), leading the series of benefit concerts to fund the investigation of Mia Zapata's murder, inspiring countless bands and artists, getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and now we get to view all of these incredible achievements in her upcoming documentatary, "Bad Reputation." We love her dearly and wish her many more years of being the most badass punk rock chick in rock history. #joanjett #joanjettandtheblackhearts #blackheartrecords #kennylaguna #badreputation #godmotherofpunk #therunaways #originallineup #cheriecurrie #litaford #sandywest #jackiefox #mikeness #socialdistortion #evilstig #greenday #brodydalle #thedistillers #thegits

I still have my red chucks from when I was fifteen years old. I still have my Cheap Trick shirt from the ELECTRIC CHAIR before I knew who Cheap Trick was, because I had a picture of you rocking it. I learned guitar playing along to the Runaways.. “You Drive Me Wild” specifically. My second and only guitar I still play, a 1965 Gibson Melody Maker, because you played one (and Johnny Thunders.) You were vegan before it was cool. You did Rock For Choice, and the Gits resurrected as Evil Stig when lead singer, Mia Zapata was raped the murdered and brought attention to finding her murderer. You were a guitarist when no girl was. When 20 record companies told you no, you sold records out of the trunk of your car and went on to have a number one hit. And lasted. And continued on. After Glam, then Punk, then New Wave, Post Punk, hair bands, Metal, Riot Grrrl, Alternative and Post Pop Depression, you have persisted. You are Rock’N’Roll. You are the Queen of Rock’N’Roll. No one can sue me for copyright infringement more than you. Happy birthday. #JoanJett #theRunaways #CherryBomb #CaliforniaParadise #QueenOfNoise #BadReputation #ILoveRockNRoll #CrimsonAndClover #DoYouWannaTouch #YeahYeah #RockForChoice #EvilStig #TheGits #MiaZapata #QueenOfRockNRoll #SallyShag #BlackEyeliner #Jumpsuits #Bandanas #Converse #GloriousResultsOfAMisspentYouth

It's been a while since I have shown my face, so here I am with my usual #TBT!
On the 7th of July 1993 Mia Zapata, lead singer of the Gits, was raped and murdered walking home from this bar (my favourite) in Capitol Hill.
The Seattle music community, including its most famous bands - Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden - helped raise $70,000 to hire a private investigator for three years.

It took police a decade to identify and capture her killer, who eventually was sentenced to 37 years in prison in January 2009, 16 years after.

Trying to "gently" recover my voice after a week MIA with a cold. I only discovered Mia and the Gits (wow, didn't even intend that terrible pun) 4 years ago, but they've been a crucial part of me being in a band at all. I ritualize and honor that truth every change I get, even in vocal warmups.

Here’s my #miazapata tattoo. I put it up against the original picture, then added 4 more single ones. This is connected to my Facelift #laynestaley tattoo on my upper arm that reaches down past my elbow to connect to this and to my other Layne tattoo on the inside of my forearm. All done by @richwhite at @actiontattooauburn - Rich is the best in what he does and has a very great work ethic. I’m pleased with everything he’s done. I wish all of my tattoos had turned out as good as what he’s done! #thegits #aliceinchains #laynestaley #laynelove #richwhite #nehistripesmusiczine #seattleicons #seattlelegends #grungeera

I wanted to show the update on my “Layne-Facelift” tattoo. This is the first picture I shared when I got the first part done in early July. But we weren’t done. We eventually wanted to extend it up further on both sides, and bring it down past my elbow to meet up with my #miazapata tattoo and my other Layne tattoo which is on the inside of my left forearm. The 2nd & 3rd pictures are the top and bottom of the extension. I’ll post my Mia tattoo later on. I have the best tattoo artist @richwhite @actiontattooauburn - he’s an award winning portrait artist. #laynestaleytattoo #miazapatatattoo #thegits #aliceinchains #actiontattooauburn #richwhite #nehistripesmusiczine #seattleicons #seattlesound

This tune is so my jam on so many levels. Pissing off the neighbors at this point, but whateves. I need this.

#anthem #onrepeat #music #musicislife #thegits #secondskin #musicislove
I've thought about it a million times
It takes all my strength just to keep it calm
I have to tell myself, just let it breathe
Holding it inside will only help to do me in
Each time I close my eyes I see another chain
It's one I can't forget, something I can not break out of

I need a second skin, something to hold me up
Can't seem to get out of this hole
I've dug myself right back in

Just to wake up tells me hell I must be brave
It hits me like a drug shot into my veins
But it's not as delightful - delightful of a pain
Immobilizing me
Almost makes me think I'm dead

I need a second skin
Something to hold me tough
Can't do it on my own
Sometimes I need just a little more help
Well I want that chance to give every drop that's left in me
I need that second skin
Something I can not break out of

I just tell myself, girl just let it breathe
It's a calmness I'm always searching for
But the dirt it gets so heavy
It falls above my head
Seeping from under my feet
It just keeps on getting deeper

I need a second skin
Something to hold me up
Can't do it on my own
Sometimes I just need a little more help
I've got that chance to give every drop that's left in me
I need a second skin
Something I cannot break free of

Though no one ever said it'd be easy
Still one's left to deny the choice that comes
Between your willingness to survive
Though you're knowing what you stand up against
A world set to deceive
You need a special strength

I've got that second skin
Yea I've got that chance to give
I've got the only way that I know how to live with it
I need a second skin
Something to hold me tough
I need a second skin
Something I cannot break out of !

Another addition to my growing magazine collection (with Alice In Chains on the cover). I started collecting them in 1989/90. This one is the September 2018 Edition from German rock magazine #rockhard. Inside there’s a big 4 page article on @aliceinchains and another 8 pages on Seattle grunge. It also has a small section that includes the musicians we’ve lost from the grunge era too; including #mikestarr #miazapata & #scottweiland You can pick up a copy on eBay, but make sure you don’t get squeezed too hard on the shipping. Some sellers will mark the magazine down, only to make up the difference in the shipping!

Buscar verdad como algo raro.
Ya nada es de verdad.
I need a second skin.
Cuando las bandas te sacaban lágrimas con la cruda verdad.
