    I love Janis. I keep thinking what she'd be doing today if alive. She's so connected to the whole 60s culture that it's difficult to visualize her out of that time frame.

Jim asked Janis about herself, and she blurted a few phrases about her troubled high school years in Texas, where she had been mocked and shunned because her family wasnt well off. After an hour, and after many more drinks and some pills, just as Janis was laughing a little too raucously at something Jim had said, he grabbed her by her hair and suddenly forced her face down into his crotch.

    It was an awful moment. People near them backed off. Furious at this humiliation, Janis hit Jim in the face and walked away, calling him an asshole over her shoulder.

    I know Im an asshole, he said to her back.

    Later, as she was leaving, an even drunker Jim stopped her car in the driveway and tried to speak to her. Witnesses said she rolled down her window and, when Jim bent down to apologize, she smashed her Southern Comfort bottle over his head before driving off, cursing him.
    (From blender.com)

    I also read that he thought highly of her after this, and wanted to see her again. She refused.

    Jimmy,Jimmy, Jimmy. I love him to death but I am TOTALLY not surprised he would do something like that.
    Men are pigs...sometimes.
    I mean most of the time...
    I mean...nevermind.

    So...I hope this isn't awful, but do you think she was fond of the ladies too? Just curious. I mean, we can all theorize...I know she sang about men but she was so young...Is there anything out there worth anything that might verify or discredit the idea?

    Yes, Ruby..Janis didn't limit herself to the menfolk. She loved who she loved and didn't let gender get in the way. She is missed!

    Brilliant brilliant brilliant brilliant talent. Seemed kind, and highly intelligent too. Wish I could hop in a time machine and meet her.

    Trust me, I feel the same way about Amy Winehouse. (who I am afraid may have a few things in common with Janis)

    me and my wife stayed in room 105 at highland gardens. I was somewhat surprised at the size of the room a lot larger than I had thought it was also nicer that I envisioned. I thought it would be kinda eerie but I actually got a really cool vibe from the room. Supposedly the hotel is haunted by her, but I didn't see any ghosts.

    Do they make a big thing of it being "Janis's room"?

    Ive always loved Janis's music. Favoite song has always been ball and Chain


    Heres a shot of the Janis Joplin display at the Hard Rock Cafe in San Francisco. The cape that hangs on the wall is the cape thats on the Pearl album cover draped over the sofa Janis is on.




    Here is Laura Joplin, Janis's sister signing my book for me " Love, Janis "

    Janis is one of the few artist that makes my spine shiver with some of her songs. Her singing in "A woman left lonely" blows me away.

    Ah, bless Janis......truly a dear sweet intelligent soul.

    Seriously---I have never read a single story about Janis being a shit about anything, ever. Messed up, yes, but never unkind. Did I miss something?

    I don`t know.....I think Janis could have had a very long career....there is no one that even comes close to sounding like her, let alone her absolute power on stage.....I`d like to think that if she had lived, she would have found her prince charming, had a couple of little Janis`s and been rocking into her twilight, with her granbabies on her knees....just how I picture it....

    Richard Bell who was Janis's piano player for her Full Tilt Boogie Band also died this year. Just a footnote. Slowly Janis's band will be together again ....

    The Full Tilt Boogie Band was Janis's band who recorded her Pearl album

    Hard to believe that much time has gone by, and she would be 65.

    Happy Birthday to one of the ladies with the best voices ever.

    Nobody sang like her.

    Played Me and Bobby McGee for the kids on the way home tonight. If anybody has some spare So-Co, pass a shot or two my way. I could tear through a bottle of that in my younger days.

    Happy Birthday, Janis! At 65, she'd still be rockin' and showing the younger chicks how it's done.
