Joan Jett, Sid Vicious & The Pleasure Chest

In an interview posted today at The Morton Report, Joan Jett confirms a rumor we’ve heard for years:

I think it was '78. All the Runaways were staying on a houseboat. On that same trip, I was also hanging out with Sid [Vicious] and Nancy [Spungen]. That was right before they came to America. And you know, that hoop belt that Sid would always wear, it was a black leather belt with rings on it. I gave that to him in England. I bought that at the Pleasure Chest in LA, and I used to wear it all the time, you can see a lot of Runaways pictures with me wearing that belt. And I gave it to him just as a gesture, because I was a fan. And he started wearing it, and in all their pictures of them in America when they did their tour. I just think that's funny.

While we’re on the subject of the 70s, check out Dressing for Pleasure, a 1977 documentary on fetish fashion, which helped influence the UK punk scene.
