that must be after Big Brother -- when they tried to remake her into a woman with a crack band. Big Brother was better, imho.

Anyway, did you "chick" on the ad before you left the site?

Phew! No matter what, she could make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. A sad, short life, but really, you can’t imagine somebody like that getting old.

My 21 yr old son is a music fan will call me over to hear the latest female singing sensation.

I say “That’s nice” and then I say, “Check this out” and play a clip of Janis.

He gets quiet real fast. No one alive comes close to Janis.

No one.

Sometimes life does that to a soul. She put something into music that a lot of people can relate to.

Ugly broad screams her guts out is more like it. I don’t consider that singing. Even I could do that.

Bill Bennett went on a date with her once (twice?).

He won’t discuss it though - but he has confirmed it.
I believe the first one was a blind date.

I liked a few of her songs, that was not one of them. I have read about her life, her family. They did not seem very different from my own. Wonder what sent her on that path?

Still love the music JJ and Big Brother put out.
My favorite was their version of “Summertime”.

I grew up with that.

I couldn’t then and I still cannot now see the point of it.

Sorry, Janis. I liked some of our stuff. But you were only a druggie.

JJ— the pride of Beaumont, Tx. Well, not really. She was the best of the raspy voiced female blues rock artists of all time. Not even Kim Carnes (Betty Davis Eyes) comes close.
You young’uns allow us old geezers to reminisce some.

...yep, that’s the bottom line....alcohol and drugs ran her life until they killed her...I don’t see her as a great artist at all...just a sad derelict.

My God...she looked 40 when she was 26.I've often wondered what the 60's (the greatest music decade ever) would have been like without all the stuff they were smokin',shootin',snortin' and poppin'.

It's pretty clear that she was neither clean nor sober during *this* performance.But it's still *great* stuff.

I saw her at a rock festival in Lewisville, Tx back in the day. She sang “Piece of My Heart” for thirty minutes. Short, sad life, but boy could she sing.

“Those were the days”

Yup, I was a Palo Alto hippie working in a hippie bookstore about that time. Had all my hair too plus a full beard, bell bottoms and a Greek sailors hat.

Oh Geeze - those WERE the days and Boone’s WAS the bomb then! Love, J but don’t know why - maybe it was nice to see a girl who was unpopular in high school make it big - if all the stuff that ended up killing her was making it big...

Wow - someone from Palo Alto ends up on the Free Republic? Nevah!!!! I grew up in Los Altos and hung out at Stanford all during high school - had a friend who worked at the PA movie theatre on University who’d smuggle me in - those were the Plunkett/Vataha football days of fame...dating myself...

Yeah, I met Plunkett, his frat used to throw beer kegs at the band frat down the hill. I worked at Kepler’s bookstore with Joan Baez’s mom. I wanted to date Martine Habib, a French folksinger, but she was lesbo just like the rest of that crew.
