Even so, the similar point that Nugent complained about months back — that Jett was provided in Rolling Stone’s 2003 record of the 100 finest guitarists of all time — continues to be an difficulty.
“Joan Jett can not be on the best 100 guitar players in the background of rock and roll prior to Rik Emmett of Triumph.

Jett additional included that Nugent is “not a tough guy” and referenced an infamous job interview in which the guitarist claimed to have defecated in his have trousers to stay away from currently being drafted into the military.

So then she got wind of it and just viciously attacked me individually, [claiming] that I was jealous for the reason that I was not on it. I never talked about I should be on it.”
Nevertheless Nugent frequently insisted he had “nothing but nice things” to say about Jett, he was more heated in a abide by-up video.
“Joan, would you just loosen up?” Nugent reported (as transcribed by Blabbermouth). “Perhaps the plastic [surgery] has long gone to her brain… I never know. I just did not imagine she was that stupid. I under no circumstances mentioned anything at all about how stupid she was. I failed to feel she was silly now we know how stupid she is.”
