    Janis Joplin annoys me. So does that bulldyke imitator of her's, Melissa Ethridge.

    Stop screaming and sing properly, you cunts.

    Not a fan of either. But I do remember I couldn't get through the interview when she was on Howard. Had to turn it off.

    I agree with Ethridge but Janis was a whole lot better than almost all of today's shitty female acts (or male for that matter)

    Terrible. The karaoke music makes it even worse.

    You gotta understand that what Janis was doing was NOT rock and roll, but the blues. (my favorite genre)
    In blues it works perfectly. Men singing blues have used it in their voices forever. It brings out an emotion of pain.
    Some voices seem to work well in certain genres. As far as female voices are concerned, I like hearing the gravelly/whiskey voiced women sing blues tunes. The raspy voices tend to add to the sad topics of the music.

    They may have been pricks, but they weren't liars.
