I had long unruly hair and I wore all sorts of flowing vests and long stands of beads and feathers. How the hell I ever transcended into disco I will never know.
I never gave up the music. Lord that woman could belt out a song.
She also had the most delightful laugh; something that folks didn't hear too often.
I was heartbroken when she died.
A movie is now in the works examining the last 6 months of Janis Joplin's life.
Nina Arianda, a Broadway actress, has been chosen to portray Janis.
I don't know much about Nina beyond her role in the recent Broadway hit 'Venus in Fur'
So it's difficult to have an opinion about the casting. I read that Pink was being considered and that I could see.
I'm looking forward to the movie and I hope it brings Janis Joplin's music to a new generation.
Who do you think could play Janis?
