How's it going "lzfan715" as well as my fellow die hard hard core ZEPPELIN fanatics? ITS F-R-I-D-A-Y!!! "lzfan715," how's my favorite number one JANIS fan of them all? 4 October 1970 will be a day that Rock n' Roll as well as all of us will never forget. Please read my recent tribute to JANIS in your JANIS JOPLIN thread, I think that you would be very happy with what I have to say about our beloved JANIS. JANIS was one unique woman indeed. JANIS JOPLIN is irreplaceable, there will NEVER be another JANIS JOPLIN. ROCK ON!

Did you know Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison were all 27 when they died?

Kurt Cobain, Brian Jones and Robert Johnson too!

Weren't the years pretty close too??

Jimi died Spetember 18 1970

Janis died October 4 1970

Jim died July 3 1971.

Not a great time for rock n roll fans. It must have been pretty depressing losing that many big names that close together.

How's it going again "spats?" IT IS SO SAD! It breaks my heart that so many greats whom I consider my idols as well as THE ROCK N' ROLL GODS would have their lives cut so short while still in their prime. John Bonham, Keith Moon, Dennis Wilson, Bon Scott, the list is long "spat." ROCK ON!

Janis Joplin Biopic Casts Amy Adams as Late Singer

The life of late vocalist Janis Joplin has been the subject of much discussion in Hollywood over the years, and it looks like a biopic on the singer will finally get made. According to the Hollywood Reporter, director Lee Daniels is in talks to oversee ‘Get It While You Can,’ with ‘The Master’ actress Amy Adams attached to star as the music icon.

The path to making Joplin’s story on the big screen has been a long one, with numerous actresses, directors and film companies showing interest over the years. At one point, Renee Zellweger and Brittany Murphy were attached to projects on Joplin, while directors Fernando Meirelles and Catherine Hardwicke have been on board to oversee past Joplin films that never made it to completion.

Joplin is best known for her classic tracks ‘Piece of My Heart’ and ‘Me and Bobby McGee.’ She passed away in 1970 at the age of 27 from a heroin overdose. Despite her short tenure in music, Joplin’s impact was definitely felt. She received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.

Adams has seen her star rise in Hollywood in recent years. She earned Oscar nominations for her roles in ‘Junebug’ and ‘Doubt’ and has appeared in such box office hits as ‘Catch Me if You Can,’ ‘Enchanted,’ ‘Julie & Julia,’ and ‘The Muppets.’ In addition to ‘The Master,’ Adams also starred in the recent Clint Eastwood film, ‘Trouble With the Curve.’

Daniels caught his big break by directing the Oscar-nominated film ‘Precious.’ His next film, ‘Paperboy,’ just arrived in theaters. Earlier this year, it was revealed that another Joplin biopic was in the works, with Tony-winning actress Nina Arianda in the lead role. Producers for that film, titled ‘Joplin,’ have the rights to 21 of Joplin’s tracks, and Arianda will sing.

Duane kicked their butts, he died at 24! And not even from drugs, he did it the old fashioned way, on a motorcycle.
