I never saw anything in Janis Joplin in any fashion.
She wasn't a looker, by any stretch, and Big Brother and the Holding Company weren't particularly talented. But as a balls-out (so to speak) rock and roll singer, she had it going.
But from that era I would like to acknowledge the great, underrated, Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane/Starship She was pretty easy on the eyes too
Yeah, I'll agree with that one on both counts.
