60's Rock Stars
Recently I watched a PBS program on Janis Joplin. Other than censoring the swear words and fuzzing the occasional bare breast, the show was a very good overview of the life, career, and sad death of Janis. One thing bothered me some, however. The program seemed to imply that Janis was the only female singer at the time worth mentioning. This is, of course, quite untrue. There were several excellent female singers in the 60's, and in San Francisco, in particular Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane who certainly was no vocal slouch. Anyway, I found this picture which says so much about the time, people, and music of San Francisco during the 1960's psychedelic scene.
