“Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)” Lyric Video:
“I’ve always been a big fan of Joan Jett. I love the mix of raw energy and sexual tension in her version of “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)”. I actually didn’t even know it was originally a Gary Glitter song until after I recorded my version. Mine is much more true to the Joan Jett version but modernized with big drums, huge guitars, heavy synths, and a dose of noise to give it the Blue Eyed Christ sound. “
– John D. Norten
