Rolling Stone and Gibson have teamed up to offer a special weeklong series of music performances – Joan Jett & The Blackhearts performing the hard-rocking “I Hate Myself For Loving You”,
This “In My Room” session, presented by Gibson, spotlights Joan Jett & The Blackhearts performing the hard-rocking “I Hate Myself For Loving You”, while the band members stay socially distant in their own homes.
“I wanted to be an actor before I fell in love with music,” Jett, explains in an interview with Variety. “And ‘Cabaret’ was really the combining of the two. Seeing that, with its ’20s flapper girl decadence and the crazy makeup, around the same time I started wanting to play guitar, it all sort of melded together into this sort of slightly decadent-looking vibe — I mean, I didn’t quite have that at 13, but it was developing.”
To support the music community in these uncertain times, Joan Jett has teamed with Gibson guitars to donate an autographed, limited-edition Gibson Joan Jett ES 339 Electric Guitar – of which only 150 were made worldwide – for auction on CharityBuzz.com, here.
Proceeds from the auction organized by Gibson Gives – the charitable arm of Gibson – and Rolling Stone, will benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund offering immediate financial assistance to musicians, production crews, and music industry creators; to donate directly, head here.
The new Joan Jett ES-339 guitar features a thermally-engineered chambered maple centerblock and thermally-engineered Adirondack Spruce bracing, a radical first for Gibson ES guitars. The control assembly is hand-wired with Orange Drop capacitors and is paired with our Burstbucker 2 and Burstbucker 3 humbucking pickups. From sweet to rude, the tonal capabilities of the Joan Jett ES-339 guitar are truly limitless. The stunning AAA figured maple veneers are finished in Wine Red for a look that will always make a statement. The Joan Jett ES-339 will be produced in a very limited run of only 150 guitars worldwide. The autographed instrument will come with a Gibson Joan Jett Signature hardshell case and custom Joan Jett certificate of authenticity.
