Rock and roll pioneer Joan Jett rocked Bumbershoot in 1994 along with her band the Blackhearts. Jett had already been scoring hits for some 20 years before stepping on to the Bumbershoot Mainstage. Also appearing on the Mainstage in 1994: Jackson Browne, the Neville Brothers, Buddy Guy, Bruce Hornsby and Bonnie Raitt.
According to legend, Jett would call Mike Tyson on every day he had a major fight. Apparently the first time she didn’t call was on the day of his fight against Buster Douglas. Tyson would go on to lose his first career bout. Joan’s definitely got the juju!
