It's hard to believe that Pearl has been gone 47 years. Her impact on the music world will never die.

Hi Leslie,

How are you, mate?!

Yes, I tend to prefer Janis's music, when she was with BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY (1966-1968), compared to when she was with THE KOZMIC BLUES BAND (1969), or THE FULL TILT BOOGIE BAND (1970); I think she, and her music, had more energy when she was with BIG BROTHER.

Hi Douglas, well apart from breaking up with my woman who's gone off with a 'younger dude' yeah not to bad thanks.

When it comes to Janis Joplin I am not a fan of hers in particular although I have read quite a bit about her down the years but I am more interested the band BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY and that 'hippy' San Francisco sound from 1966-68. I remember hearing Pete Townsend of The Who saying on the radio maybe around 10-15 years ago that "BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY was the worse (rock) band he ever heard at the Monterey Pop Festival back in June 1967 but I had heard of the band long before Pete Townsend said that.

Hi Leslie,

I'm so sorry to hear that, mate; that's no good at all; and I hope you're going to be all right.

Yes, I remember reading that comment of Pete Townsend's, about Big Brother and The Holding Company; But I thought they were a good band!

Anyway, thanks so much for replying, and and take good care, mate.

Kindest Regards,

Douglas
