Happy Birthday to one of the first accomplished female blues singers in history, Bessie Smith! Bessie was a major influence on Janis’ career.

To show her thanks, Janis and Juanita Green, who helped Bessie with housework as a child, paid for a gravestone, on a previously unmarked site where Bessie was buried, that read: “The Greatest Blues Singer in the World Will Never Stop Singing.”

EU vi um filme sobre a vida dela, pra mim era uma pessoa que guardava historias com respeito a amizades e convivências ,infelizmente ela (pra mim)usou o seu talento mediante a bebida na vida...lamentavél....,assim como a Janis ,se espelhou nela (como eu soube)e entrou na aventura de fazer de sua vida ,uma verdadeira anarquia ainda mais com as drogas e a bebida, uma pena!!!

In the 1950s my mom would listen to Bessie Smith on what were seventy-eight record. Bessie music was beautiful and soulful. My mother told me the tragic story how she died. Very sad. Happy birthday Bessie!

Today is the birthday of Grammy Hall of Fame singer, Billie Holiday! Billie was one of Janis’ idols and inspired her throughout her career.

“Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday… They are so subtle, they can milk you with two notes! They can go no farther than from A to B, and make you feel like they told you the whole universe…”
- Janis Joplin

You’ve heard Billie Holiday’s cover of George Gershwin’s “Summertime;” stream Janis and Big Brother & the Holding Company’s amazing version off the album ‘Cheap Thrills’:

Oh yes love ❤️ it yes,

Happy Birthday to the father of Chicago blues, Muddy Waters! 🙏 Janis once told Dick Cavett that she felt all alone growing up in Texas, until she discovered the blues:

“Playing is just about feeling. Playing isn't necessarily about misery. Playing isn't necessarily about happiness. …That’s the only reason I can sing is because I just close my eyes and let all those things that are inside just come out.”

Without Muddy Waters & that feeling from the blues, who knows if we would’ve had the Queen of Rock & Roll!

Ugh, Steven Tyler. One time I went to an Aerosmith concert, and all he did was dry hump his guitar player. Disgusting. The worst concert I've ever been to. 😒🤢 paid over $500 just to see him dry hump the guitar player. Disgusting!!!! The only good thing about the concert was Lenny Kravitz for the opening act.

Janis Joplin Reincarnated:

I Ruin Creation

Since I am a true slave to Satan, I have no free will.
I am not allowed to choose other then to kill
you and your soul.
A murderder became your idol.

Because Satan won’t let me die.
All He does is let me fry.
I want to die.

Now I have to write.
His soul I cannot fight.

He has full control over me,
and doesn’t let me go, you see.

A true slave to God. The slave master He is.
Kiss. Kiss.
