Girls and Guitars

Look at this picture. Just look at it. Isn’t it beautiful?

Everything about this picture is perfect. Joan Jett and Lita Ford are 19 and playing rock stars, a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy in this case. They are determined. They are gorgeous. They are badass. 

Look at their faces, they mean it, they feel it. Look at their fingers, they can play it. Look at the Rock Goddess poses and the catsuits. Oh my, the catsuits.

They say that youth is wasted on the young, but you can only pull this sort of shit off when you’re a fearless 19-year old. No waste here, I could look at this picture all day long.

When I was 19, all I ever thought about was girls and guitars.
