"Dougie Needles" Of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and I go back about 25 years as childhood friends. We were in each other's first band. Let me just say that he has A LOT of talent and Guitar virtuosity that he isn't showing... He's just playing the part. It's a gig. He's paying the bills... Him and I were playing Progressive Rock and basically inventing the "Jam Band" Genre back in the late 80's. We scrapped our ideas and went our separate ways only to see a million bands pop up doing what we'd been doing for years... (like Phish, Blues Traveller etc.) So anyway, I said all that to say that Doug is extremely talented and has MANY more facets than he shows... Believe that!
