Both suck a dick imho.
or a twat.
i never got janis, but i love her screaming inspiration, roky erickson. i did feel bad for her when i read the story of her being voted ugliest man on campus. what a buncha pricks.
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)
...my favorite macy gray performace.
Terrible. The karaoke music makes it even worse.
...its macy gray not the beatles. shes no janis joplin.
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.
I wish she'd do a blues album!
They may have been pricks, but they weren't liars.
