Judy, Joan, Joni, and Janis. It was Janis’s birthday last week, and with all else going on somehow I missed it. She would have been 68.
No, that’s impossible. She’ll always be a screaming twenty-something. But, back in 1970, even twenty-something was an older woman to most of us.
Here is Janis singing (or screaming? You decide, but she screamed exquisitely…) “Piece of My Heart”.
Oh, the fifth female singer that begins with “J”? My wife Jeri, of course. And she didn’t even expect me to say that.
