Joan Jett, who is old enough to be their mother, rocked coalition troops in Afghanistan:
- Wearing black boots, camouflage pants and a fishnet top, American rocker Joan Jett performed for several hundred soldiers at the U.S. military headquarters in Afghanistan.
About 500 coalition troops, mostly Americans, attended a concert Friday night in an airplane hangar with automatic weapons slung behind their backs.
Some soldiers stood atop stacked boxes of MREs — or Military Meals Ready To Eat — to catch a glimpse. A giant U.S. flag was draped behind Jett while she sang.
Jett saved her top hits, including “I Love Rock and Roll,” for last. After the first show ended, troops shouted for more, and Jett returned to perform an encore — a song called “Everyday People.”
“A song called ‘Everyday People'”? Maybe the reporter is Afghani or something, “Everyday People” was only a No. 1, million-selling iconic classic for Sly and the Family Stone.
- Dano Goforth, Jett’s tour manager, said she performed for about 2,000 U.S. troops on Sept. 25 in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar.
And Ted Rall says life isn’t better in Afghanistan – dumbass.Powered by Sidelines
