Usually musicians are a bit too self-serving to have a real mind-melter as their opening act. There have been exceptions, however, that escaped that black pit of ego and launched themselves into the skyclad glories of immortality. Iggy Pop opening for The Rolling Stones in 1981; Kool & The Gang opening for Van Halen in 2012; and, rather fortuitously circuitously, The Smiths opening up for SPK in 1983. So when you hear that Joan Jett is opening up for Morrissey, you tend to sit up and take notice. She’s got a new documentary, Bad Reputation; his latest album is Low in High School. Chances are you’ve seen either of them more than a few times — getting Joan Jett’s peanut butter in Morrissey’s chocolate and Morrissey’s chocolate in Joan Jett’s peanut butter is just an extra added treat at this point.
