Quote of the Day
May 19 2014 @ 9:01 am

"The significance of Janis wasn't really what she did (how she sang); what mattered was who she was, and where. A plain and awkward Texan girl, blossoming on San Francisco dope and indulgence - she was a symbol for every kid loser in '60s America: the dumpy dropout who'd made it, become beautiful and happy and free." - Simon Frith, Let It Rock, April 1975
