Janis Joplin was born on this day, and she would have been 70 were she still with us.»www.janisjoplin.com/The Pearl was beautiful, though she knew it not.
I still sing along (loudly) when I hear Mercedes Benz !!
Sure do wish she'd been with us longer.
Great talent, I listen to her often.
I have a couple different friends who are singers, and as good as they are, they can't fake it like she did it for real.
I met Janis while living up in the Haight-Ashbury area. Yes I was one of the hippies out on Haight street. It was fun while it lasted. I get around.Happy Birthday Janis. I used to go see her at the Fillmore (on Fillmore not Fillmore West).Jammy--lagh lucharghlu'bogh HuH ghopDu'lIj lungaSjaj
