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 appearance but by what they have to give artistically and as a person.  All that Janis ever wanted was to be accepted.  That want was what I think in the end resulted in her drug and alcohol addiction that took her life in a tragic end. 

For more information on her life, please read the biography Buried Alive by Myra Friedman.  It is an awesome account of the life of a truly exceptional and gifted artist, Janis herself.  The book gives you more of a look at her life rather than just her music.  It gives the reader understanding of her music and of her behavior and tragic end.

have you read scars of paradise? it's awesome too.

Janis was a genius when it came to music. Unfortunately the drugs and high life did her in.
