Joan Jett rocks "Bad Reputation" to open Aerosmith concert in Vancouver

What the fuck! Nothing against Sheryl Crow, but do they have to play "If It Makes You Happy" before what could be the last concert by America's greatest hard-rock band (of the '70s)?

That prospect doesn't make me happy, although it might make for a wicked show.

All will be revealed in about 80 minutes. In the meantime, opener Joan Jett is 13 minutes late.

Oh, here she comes, blasting right into "Bad Reputation". Not bad, although I'll take Thin Lizzy's any day of the week.
