Inspiration Of The Day: Janis Joplin

Today, I'm taking it back to the 60's with Janis Joplin- "The Queen of Rock and Roll". 
Her music reached out to thousands of people and are still listened to even though she isn't here today. 
Her raspy rocker voice mixed with her bluesy take of rock and roll made the songs timeless. 
I must say, her hippie style isn't my cup of tea, but she is iconic nonetheless. 
Unfortunetly, throughout her career she was a drug addict and an alcoholic, which eventually killed her. That's the thing about the 60's. But all that aside, people had real talent back then. That's why I rely on my mom who has been my music appreciator and has shown me all the wonderful artists of the 1960's-1980's. So most of my music influence comes from her part. Next piece will be one of my favorite bands...... stay tuned!!
