She looks hammered! Still sings better than me, though!
Anyway, did you "chick" on the ad before you left the site?
Those were the days............makes me want to sit in a field of wild flowers, drinking Boone’s Farm and .......... well I’ll leave it at that.
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.
"...better to burn out than fade away...
Don’t think she was lesbo...
awesome. thanks for posting.
do your homework, daddy.
Now here we have a less dysfunctional but very talented contemporary ‘blueswoman’...turn up your sound.
Maybe you right daddio...
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.
What a train wreck, a shrieking train wreck.
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”.
you must be closer to the perfect race than the rest of us. ;)
I even like the typo above the video:
“Please chick on this ad before you leave. Thank You”
So young, gone too soon.
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.
I liked some of our stuff=
I liked some of *your* stuff
Beethoven was spinning in his grave.
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.
“Sorry, Janis. I liked some of our stuff. But you were only a druggie”
...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.
Didn’t know that Beethoven wrote “Ball and Chain”
I was thinking she was from Port Arthur.
You better come on, come on
Take another little piece of my heart, now baby.
Oh, Oh, take it!
Take another little piece of my heart, now baby.
Janis Joplin,1970 Fayetteville,I have the ticket somewhere.
Canceled that show at the very last,that day I believe
Oh Lord I Would have loved to have seen Janis perform
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.
Claire Torry had great gig.
Janis burned the candle at both ends.
Here’s another one for today’s yutes; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVMqtOUipXY
She was bisexual.
“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...
I think she swung both ways - or, as they like to say, EXPERIMENTED with alternate life styles...(saw it on a doco...)
She’s great but I hate to break it to you - that is NOT the blues - and J sang the blues...
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...
This lady sing the blues to you?
The ‘blues’ comes in a spectrum of shades.
Indigo blue, deep blue, light blue, baby blue, black and blue.......
You got it - that is definitely THE BLUES!
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.
