Been a hectic week but I found this on somebody’s twitter page…I’d say whose if this were the sort of week where I could remember…
That’s Debbie Harry (of Blondie), Suzi Quatro and Joan Jett, circa some time in the late seventies. Three women, who, shall we say, probably benefited from Weiss’ experience more than she did, and all of whom were appropriately grateful. They knew where they came from even if a lot of other people forgot.
And that put me in mind of Quatro’s lengthy radio interview with Weiss from shortly after Weiss’ release of her first (and so far only) comeback album in 2007, which I was fortunately able to track down here.
Should not be missed by anyone interested in how culture works.
Sometimes, somebody just says no…and actually means it.
On all kinds of levels.
