January 19th is a rather busy day in music history: First, the legendary https://janisjoplin.comJanis Joplin, who left us far too young, would have turned 79 today. And although she lived such a short life, her influence on pop music and rock ‘n’ roll has remained towering. I mean goodness, that voice, y’all.
Happy birthday, Janis! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
