    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

    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"...

    Yes I Love Her!

    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...

    Love You Lady!

    Oh Janis, what a loss it was to the industry when you passed. I watch videos of you from the year I was born and sometimes wonder what life would have been like to know you personally. Rest gently in peace baby, and thank you so much for everything you contributed while you...

    Bobby Mcgee

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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?"

    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...
