    A little bit of choppy classical guitar clip put together for you... ‘Dee’ is a song that was composed by Randy Rhoads and dedicated towards his mother Delores Rhoads, who first introduced the soon-to-be metal guitarist of Ozzy Osbourne to the beauty of classical music. I have always had a taste for the music of metal guitarists who are inspired by music other than metal... they just seem to bring a little bit of something else so subtle yet so beautifully woven into this testosterone-driven, angsty music of the frustrated youths. Keep in mind that I’m still very much a headbanger and I like the heavy-ass music that has kept me going since I was a teenager 😂🤟🤟

    In talking about the unkind treatment she faced for her tough-girl image in the music scene, Joan Jett explains just how brutal the rejections were that she faced in the beginning of her newfound music career with the Blackhearts, “It’s hard to imagine, now, the resistance,” she says. “It wasn’t only about girls and rock’n’roll but also my image was so much harder than other girls in rock’n’roll, with the black hair and the leather jacket. We still have all the rejection letters; 23 of them.”

The labels gave a variety of reasons: “They’d say, ‘You have no songs’,” Jett gives a lop-sided smirk, “and the tape we sent had I Love Rock’n’Roll, Crimson and Clover, Do You Wanna Touch Me and Bad Reputation. So they didn’t only miss one, they missed four hits … And we’d get a lot of, ‘Drop the guitar, stop hiding behind the guitar, change your image, sing softer songs.’ It was you’re not allowed to be edgy and you’re not allowed to be hard if you’re a girl.” She looks puzzled. “I’m so confused about that.” (The Guardian, 2007)
