Solo acoustic show by Alan Merrill Labor Day 2017 at Ethyl’s NYC 1629 2nd ave. between 84th and 85th st., Manhattan’s upper east side. Filmed by David Zucker for MyJam productions.

The pair who created the wonderful RAKenstein that is Joan Jett. Alan Merrill (original artist & composer of the Arrows “I Love Rock N Roll” 1975) and Suzi Quatro who was the prototype and inspiration for Jett’s career.  Both artists were on Mickie Most’s RAK records in the seventies and are close friends. Both artists are sorely overlooked in the USA but are very popular elsewhere in the world.
