    Such An Inspiration.

    I love Janis Joplin, and look at her as an inspiration...not to the way she lived her life, but an inspiration of hope.  I hope that people who learn about her life and her, as an artist, see that we as a people need to accept and give acceptance to others, not by their...

    Goosebumps

    I get goosebumps listening to her, man. Her voice has so much character and emotion and her performances are hypnotizing, she always felt the music, it never looked routine, it always looked like a fresh moment for her. I wish I was around when she was still alive.

    Saw this on YouTube and had to share. Had. To. A GREAT PERFORMANCE ... When I was younger there was no bigger fan of Janis Joplin than me. When I got older I was so mad on how she died, literally could not listen to her for a long time. A lot of what happened to her was...

    Musical Connection

       Janis' music is special to me because it's a 'musical connection' to my mother. My mother is a huge Janis Joplin fan.  I can remember my mom playing 8 track tapes of Janis' music until they were worn out. Of all her songs, "Piece of My Heart"...

    My fiance's ex says she used to sing this to their son as a lullaby. Which... Is awesome, I think. :D I sing many songs to my son... Including some Janis. Her voice... Reminds me that I, myself, don't have to have a perfect voice. Even a slightly rougher hewn voice can sound...

    Mercedes Benz

    Got to be my favourite record of hers, I heard it first and laughed so much, the symbolism of the materialism, I debated at length,as an adult, but as a teenager, I just enjoyed it for the blast that it was. "Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?"

    Janis Rocks!!!

    What a sad, tragic,loss it was when she passed. She lived life as though there was no tomorrow, and on October 4, for her there was no tomorrow. Oh how I wish I could have felt that raw energy in real life. Her videos still give me a buzz.  RIP Janis.mojo

    Janis On Netflix

    The Day I Met Janis..

    It was a cold winter’s night in the middle of December, 1969. There I was, standing on the street called “St. Mark’s Place”. St. Mark’s was where I hung out. It was the East Village (lower east side of Manhattan). I did more than hang out in the streets, I lived there...

    I've been using this picture of her as my avatar, and I feel so comfortable with it.  Her voice is like a ripsaw  that has the blues.  I seem to blank out on adjectives to describe the impact of her music.  It just rocks.  It makes me feel...

    Such A Talent.....

    When Jimi Hendrix died of an overdose she said it was an accident, and 2 weeks later she died of an overdose - 2 of the biggest talents the rock & roll world ever saw - such a waste. Her voice was amazing, and I have replaced her album "Pearl" at least 10 times over the last 40...
