Jimi, then Janis

Since I missed Stevie Ray Vaughan's birthday yesterday, and got called on it, let me note another anniversary today. The passing of Janis Joplin on this date in 1970, at the age of, you guessed it, 27.

Here's a track for your enjoyment:

Piece of My Heart by Big Brother and the Holding Company (courtesy of the blog Looking at Them)

and one of my Dad's favorite songs:

Me and Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin (via the blog Buscate Un Novio).

and, since I neglected him yesterday:

The House is Rockin' by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble (via Mars Needs Guitars)
