Pretty Reckless and Joan Jett at Revolver Awards

With Princess Kate Down Under on the royal couple tour of Australia and New Zealand making all the headlines in the Greenygrey world, rock and pop women may have felt forgotten, but they are all princesses in their own way off course.

And maybe we had let you slip our minds until seeing The Pretty Reckless and Joan Jett at the Revolver awards.

Pretty Reckless at Revolver Awards

However, Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless has emerged as the primary punky princess in the Greenygrey world after sharing a Folding Mirror poem with the Queen of punky princesses Debbie Harry.

Hi, it’s Howlin’ Werewolf, satirical comedy musical correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by Blues legend Howlin’ Wolf.

The Pretty Reckless played a storming set at the recent Revolver Golden Gods set,where Joan Jett picked up a RGG award, including sending loads of great greenygrey subliminal messages into the unsuspecting rock crowd (only joking!):

Rock Legend Generations

As Marc Latham’s recent Folding Mirror poem linked the rock generations, Taylor Momsen also played with Joan Jett, legendary guitarist famed for being in The Runaways and her solo hits, including the anthemic I Love Rock n’ Roll.

The Runaways were strutting their stuff in California from 1975, a year or two before Blondie emerged on the east coast, but Marc Latham didn’t become aware of them until he got into rock in 1980.

In line with Greenygrey theory, they therefore preceded Blondie in real life, but followed them in the ML world.

Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie would have been a good candidate for linking the Debbie Harry and Taylor Momsen generations, except she is from the same generation as Debbie Harry.

Aah, the older generation still look in rockin’ great shape anyway, with Lita Ford of The Runaways still touring the world kicking out the jams as well, so there’s no need for another generational link.

There’s evidence of that in this video, with Taylor Momsen rolling back the Runaways years playing with Joan Jett at the Revolver awards, on a JJ solo hit:

P.S. In line with Greenygrey theory, The Runaways movie showed that bad things can happen in the music and wider world, as well as good, so please don’t go running away just because you feel inspired by this blog!
