Didn’t really care for her music, to each their own. She wasn’t the only Queen of rock & roll. Rolling Stones magazine named Janis Joplin (much better imo) and Stevie Nicks “Queens of rock.
Some folks don’t like Janis, I was one of them before becoming a fan of true classic rock 🙂 Sass don’t like Janis either. Jefferson Airplane will always be remembered as a band that cranked out timeless classics back in the day.Not a fan of Janis ... at all. I do like Stevie Nicks. LOVED Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane and Ann Wilson of Heart.
Ahh don't be so rough on Janis. She was fantastic. Pearl kicks butt of all the other so call 'Queen of RR" singers IMHO. Janis singing Kris Kristofferson's Me and Bobby McGee, and Cry Baby are bone chilling. As well as Mercedes Benz to make you smile.
Grace Slick came close but the JA music has not stood the test of time like Janis's has. All the others, Including Tina evolved from the early masters Janis and Grace.
I recall reading something at one time that a lot of influence came to many of the current and past true Queens of rock, from women like Mavis Staples, for example.I first saw Tina live in 1970 or 71. Nobody ever did a show like she did. It's still my favorite concert of all time - even better than Cher. She and Grace Slick were both around several years before Janis.
Couldn't stand Janis - still can't. She doesn't sing - she just screams, IMO. Most don't consider her work 'hard rock', but 'psychedelic or acid rock'. She didn't really break through until she joined Big Brother and the Holding Company, circa 66-67. She was only around a couple years, since she died in 1970.
Tina started earlier - in the early 60's. She broke though in the mid-60's. She left a much bigger body of work.
