10-19-02 "Open letter to Rolling Stone"
from: Maya Price
[Webmaster note: With the approaching JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS show at the Stone Pony, where Mother Goddess (Maya Price's band) will be opening, we thought it might be a good time to repost Maya Price's 'Open Letter to Rolling Stone'.]
I tried to find some cleverly worded way to express my disgust with your "Women in Rock" issue, but what i have to say is really quite simple: You guys are completely retarded.
By RS standards, Rock is no longer a style of music but a trendy costume to be whipped up by expensive stylists and slapped onto the latest pop tart barbie doll. Give a girl some tight pants and a spiky bracelet and POOF! She ROCKS!

Joan to host "Independent Eye"
Independent Eye, Maryland Public Television's annual showcase of independent films and videos, launches an exciting ninth season on Saturday, April 26, 2003 at 11pm.
This 6-week series highlights the best of the "indie" film movement and features experimental videos, documentaries, animations, dramas, and comedies. Each work pushes boundaries, defies commercial expectations, and transcends the mainstream of independent filmmaking.
International rock star JOAN JETT returns to host this year's series. Ms. Jett is a strong supporter of the independent artist movement and founder of the first commercially successful, woman-owned, independent rock and roll record label, BLACKHEART RECORDS. She is a native of Maryland.
