Tom, he's da man, for sure. But even he has that worried look on his face like he is thinking "I don't think I can keep up this chick..."

In addition to enjoying Janis, I'd suggest anyone from Michigan visit the Motown Museum, in Detroit. Amazing time in music history.
Speaking of history, Janis died in early October, 1970. I remember it. So, I looked up th previous month, 44 years ago. I think some will remember the events and some will be surprised.

Sorry, really don't like it...but I don't care for most country music either.:teehee: Guess your going to have to put me on ignore.:happy2:

Though I had heard the name Janice Joplin in passing before so it good to put a face/music with a name.

I'll give you a half friend pass because I hate country music too...And you sound too young to 'get' it ;)

Janis always seemed to me like someone that would come out in blue jeans, a work shirt and cowboy boots. Maybe because she was from Texas or because she lived around Hippies.

But ya know she didn't. She always dressed up like a soul singer would , wearing nice fashionable clothes that probably cost some real money.

Man, that was a long time ago.

Yep, we can be friends.....I thought they were BOTH hot!! They both have amazing voices and confidence, and that's hot! Tom does have the look at one point of "I've got a wildcat on stage", and I suppose he did!

Saw Janis at a local pop festival in 1969 (2 weeks after Woodstock). She was fantastic, but her band (Big Brother and the Holding Company) was pretty mediocre.

Didn't like Tom Jones much when he had his TV show in the '60s, but he has grown on me. I think he has held up pretty well.
