Joan Jett On Playing With Nirvana

Kurt Cobain left some mighty big shoes to fill after his passing, but Joan Jett stepped up to the occasion when twice called upon. However, just because she's a hugely successful star herself doesn't mean she wasn't nervous. Speaking in a recent interview, Jett admits "it was petrifying" to take the mic at Nirvana's 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Jett says she was "scared s***less" when she received the call because she knew she could not turn down the offer. "I have to do this.' I mean, how, as a rock and roll fan, could you say no? As a Nirvana fan? So, that was not a possibility — saying no." Even though Jett expected "a certain level of anxiety," she recalls being calm through it all, which, "gave me a sense it was all right, just karmically".
