Janis, "Piece of My Heart" "Janis Joplin's talent was that you believed she was singing her guts out every night. In that sense she was like [Edith] Piaf. You were watching a candle burn, with no wax to replace what had already been burned up. Janis was a feel, an emotion, a spur. …she aroused desire but was not the object of that desire. And I think she was never able to deal with that reality." Bill Graham
