Oh praise be God! It’s about time that all the chips fell in place for a Janis Joplin biopic. I LITERALLY was just playing ‘Down on Me’ on my way to work yesterday.
Joplin was a member of the 27 club, but her music still lives on today. She was a pioneer and a rock legend! We need this!! There are few musicians who leave a lasting impact, but I can still hear her influence in some of this generation’s artistry. I also grow tired of record labels milking the hell out of dead musicians…especially when they are habitually milking the same ones i.e. Tupac, Kurt Cobain etc. Don’t get me wrong I LOVED Kurt, but we don’t need another album of sporadic yelling. I digress…we move on.
Very excited for this film tho. Long live rock and roll.
