Joan Jett Among Kim Fowley Eulogizers

Joan Jett thanked Kim Fowley for helping make her a star at at today’s funeral for the man who discovered the incoming Rock’n’Roll Hall of Famer when she was just 16. Joan was one of many music legends (albeit the only ex Runaway) at the thoughtful and sometimes hilarious memorial at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. It was a surprisingly tender and moving event, marked by funny and somewhat scandalous anecdotes, sincere tributes to a colorful legend, and emotional appreciations of his young widow Kara (Wright) Fowley. More to come.
