Welcome to the monthly edition of Match Made in Seven! We are an international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything: a book, music, a color, a movie… and then we style an outfit based on that theme. This month Nancy chose the theme of “My Music Icon”…my blogger friends like to present a challenge, that’s for sure!
Well, my ultimate music icon is Angus Young, lead guitarist of AC/DC – which is why I have a guitar just like his. Joe Elliott from Def Leppard signed it for me, so I have to be really careful not to rub the writing off! Of course, I could have put on a pair of shorts, shirt and tie and dressed like Angus in his trademark schoolboy uniform. But I ran the Marathon du Medoc dressed as him a couple of years, so that would have been a bit predictable!
So you’re probably wondering exactly who I’m chanelling here. Well, I may not look like her, but I love rock ‘n’ roll…any ideas yet? Maybe if I’d dyed my hair jet black you’d guess who it is 😉 Yes, of course I’m talking about Joan Jett! In fact there is a connection between Angus Young and Joan Jett because she did a cover version of “Dirty Deeds” on her 1990 album The Hit List. It’s one of AC/DC’s earliest hits and definitely one of my favourites.
Joan started her music career with the Runaways when she was just 15 years old. But she’s probably best known as the frontwoman of her band Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Her androgynous style and trademark black mullet haircut often disguised her delicate features. I think she was – and still is – extraordinarily beautiful. And what makes me like her even more is her love of animals; she is an advocate for vegetarian and vegan living, and has worked closely with PETA and Farm Sanctuary – an animal protection organisation. Joan, who has been described as the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll and the Godmother of Punk, turns 61 next month. Still rocking and still kicking ass. That’s my kind of icon!
So what does a wannabe rock star do without a crowd of adoring fans and a massive amplifier to leap from? Jump off a child’s trampoline in the back garden of course! Actually, it was my mother in law who suggested I do this…it’s a lot harder than it looks! Maybe I wasn’t cut out for the rock ‘n’ roll life after all!
