And so it turned out that skip and flip didn't record it, but fowley wasn't giving up. And yeah, David Gates is involved in that too.

The three hundred kilogramme reusable lifting body design will provide a smooth ride back to earth with a soft para for landing is director of space transportation. Daniel neuenschwander says the spacecraft will be capable of being reused for at least six flights affected today. Your europe does not have this capacity and in fact at ease are we already technology demonstration of reentry on earth which took place a few years ago. Experimental vehicle called. I agree and based on this experience which was highly successful and launched by vega by the way We are now developing space writer during Lowers orbit operation in microgravity vehicle can turn maneuver according to their mission it has and then at the moment in time you start the re entry on earth in fact you have dedicated angle of attack. You start to enter into the atmosphere. This is what we call a lifting body. meaning there are no No plane type of structures. It's just a body which has a certain animal attack enters into the upper part of the atmosphere at high speed we call it hypersonic and then the speed is decreased through drag and when it starts to become subsonic you have lowered significantly speed. And once you have reached a certain level you can deploy para foil and once with the poise deployed. You can have a precision landing on the runway somewhere in europe. We do a call for opportunities and we will have different flight opportunities Planned for example in microgravity research. So if you're coming from a university that's for sure. An opportunity like In material sciences or pharmaceutical field biological that large-scale second we will work on commercial opportunities and here. We are already quite good.

Yeah, that really opened it up for you. And I know you were hanging out or you What place the night spot that really caught your attention was Ronnie being and timers? Uh, English disco, right? Yes, it was a very special place. It was a disco for for teenagers. They didn't serve liquor. And if you were over, 21, you're just kind of too old. So it was definitely geared towards kids. And they would play all the British singles that you that American kids never heard. So you here. So we and, uh, a band called the Sweet or Slade, Suzy Quatro T. Rex and just tons of great English music that American kids never heard. Three minutes. Hit songs and big choruses and handclaps, and it was, uh, really catchy stuff. And so that, you know, kind of inspired me along with that that early stuff that I told you about was deep purple and Black Sabbath. Um, mixed with the New York dolls and all this quitter stuff and that kind of became my style. And soon, you know, I mean, after that, when you got there 74 75 you founded the runaways would lead afford. Jerry Curry, Sandy West, Jackie Fox. It became huge and and you began touring quickly, like with cheap trick in Van Halen. Did that success come pretty fast for you? Well, we were we played right away. I mean, literally within a month of the runaways for me, we were doing shows. First. We were three piece and that was in. I'd say September of 75. Then by that December we had Change the line up and audition three and Jackie Fox and we became the five piece and you know, we we did go on tour right away, and we had a record deal right away One Mercury records so It's pretty cool. That's pretty cool. And you know Kim Fowley was handling some of that stuff, So I'm not really quite sure. How, um You know that that came about But the touring, um You know we were touring with. We talked a lot of a variety of bands. You know everything from like you, said Van Halen to cheap trick we were playing. We did gigs with cheap trick while they were playing the material from their first album, So that was like a really special time as well. I know you had mentioned before, and I've seen some interviews with you before that you felt like you know, at the time. You know the runaways. You didn't feel like he had a lot of direction. I mean, you were kind of on your own figuring things out. Yeah, pretty pretty much. We were just, uh, For me. It was It was all about the gigs. I wasn't really thinking much beyond that. Which could have been good or could have been bad. You know about thinking about my career and what would happen after the runaways? I just was kind of focused on really what was right in front of me, you know, writing the songs doing the shows. I wasn't really thinking about the business or how that worked, or Anything like that. I was since I was one of the songwriters. I did get money to publishing. I mean, you are, but yeah, but you were you were concerned about the music more than itself. You want the business center? That was my main concern. But I wasn't. I wasn't you know, thinking into the future about Oh, my God. What happens after this band or you know how long can this go on or anything like that? You were young and quite frankly, living for the moment which you should do with that, actually. Yeah, Absolutely. Yeah. Now I know you know, in the 19 seventies and I know you experienced. You know your fill of sexism in the music industry. You know, girls playing rock and roll. It just doesn't happen. How many times did you hear that? Thousands. Yeah. And you still, you know, people don't voice it as much, but it's more. Uh, that energy is still out there. Yeah, Let's just say that. I mean, you know you don't see you know, the music scene is not changed that much. It's not like you've got, you know, girls and bands. Playing guitar now that that are successful, The thing is, they're out there. They're all over the place. They're in every city every big city every small town. You've got girls in bands, whether it's an all girl band or a girl in a band with guys playing rock and roll. They're out there. It's just, um uh, you know, I guess it's got to be Sexism and I don't know what else to call it. You know, I mean, I When I started in this, I figured Rock and roll's sort of the free sort of medium people wouldn't give you crap for playing guitar. You know they'd be accepting. And I was completely wrong. You know, I thought people would be excited to see girls playing guitars. I was wrong, and But I'm not talking about the fans. I'm talking about something within the industry something within the power structure. It doesn't like it, And I'm thinking it's I think it's more the labels themselves that that just couldn't move the needle on this fast enough because I know you. You were told many times. Lose the guitar. Change your style. Your look everything else you know? Well, the Joan Jett experience is, you know the punk rock glam rock look and the music. I mean, it's a package.
