Strange how Big Brother and the Holding Company haven't gotten in already. After all, they were Janis' backing band. I guess it must be the fact that the backing members aren't as well known as Janis herself. Meh.

Its hard to believe it has been 45 years since her death (as of today, its anniversary). I was not around, in fact it wasn't until I was probably 12 I started learning about her music. Then her tragic death. Today I read a decent article about her, as I love learning more from rock legends. I had no idea she was friends with Seasick Steve, and how she was admired and envied by other big names at the time (Mama Cass & Grace Slick).
