SeaWorld's long year of ugly public-relations setbacks just got even worse: Joan Jett has served the theme park with a cease and desist letter demanding that they stop using her music as part of one of their most popular attractions.
The small, plucky band of rebels known as meat eaters struck a mighty blow against the vegetarian forces that otherwise dominate our society so strongly... by forcing Joan Jett to move her (still happening) performance from one float to another at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Lee Crystal, who played drums for Joan Jett & the Blackhearts during their most commercially successful period in the '80s, has died. He passed away from complications from multiple sclerosis, which he was diagnosed with in 1993.
