Quote of the Day
October 29 2014 @ 7:33 am

"I think Janis sang as a young person coming out of Texas and having kicked around San Francisco, and her voice was her voice and that was her interpretation of the songs. She sang blues. And in her own way" ...





"you know, when someone is a stylist or the originator of a style and... a particular style of blues, I don't think you can compare her. And I keep coming back to Hendrix. Hendrix was an innovator on the guitar, Janis was an innovator in a certain style... very few tried to play like Hendrix – you couldn't. Well, Janis was that. The mark of great talent, creative talent and original talent is also in its difficulty to copy that talent. And I think that's what Janis has." - Bill Graham on Janis
