First week back after the holidays and today I felt the urge for a little escapism, some nostalgia, an icon to rediscover. With that unmistakable raw bluesy voice and trademark psychedelic wardrobe, today I choose Janis Joplin, the wild, sexy, clever and funny freewheeling spirit of the 1960s.

She was just 26 when she played at the Woodstock Music Festival in Upstate New York…

She hung out with Hendrix…

Dined with Warhol…

Sung with Tom Jones and fellow Queen of Rock, Tina Turner…

“Don’t compromise yourself, you are all you’ve got.”
