Joan Jett at the Tropicana Motel, 1978.
"I remember thinking to myself while I was taking this photograph that this would be a memorable moment. Everything just clicked. The setting and the emerging icon were the perfect mix. The setting was the Tropicana Motel, which was a must-stay for all of the up and coming bands back in those days. It was a real dump, but everyone loved it. Oh yeah, that is John Wayne on the black and white TV" -Brad Elterman.
