love you Janis
Right on Kelsey! As for the rest of you, unless you knew her personally, how would you know who she did or did not date?
I have been hearing for sooooooooooo long about a bio-pic. The first time was probably around 20 years ago. Even then, I thought the perfect actress to portray her would be Lily Taylor. Then I heard she was asked to play her. Lily mildly even resembles Janis. Lily has a certain rawness as an actress. She would be the perfect choice. After all these years, they have made no headway. I learned later, Lily was definetly interested, and supposedly they`ve completely ruled her out. She is a very underated actress, and as a huge fan of hers , it is sad she was not given the chance. I read in an interview she was very disapointed she didn`t get the role .Janis would be so hard to play , but I really think she would have nailed it. With a good director, of course. A good bio-pic is so hard to make. I mean, look how that idiot Oliver Stone massacred The Doors !!!
I`ve read that a biopic of her was in the works several years ago but was abandoned because the gal is inimitable. The strong emotion she projected in her songs is almost overwhelming. She was one of a kind.
Have been a fan of Janis` since 1968.Looking for fellow hard core fan`s.
Janis didn`t "go after" Jim on a tour either, Ashley. They met at a party once and although Janis was into him at first, she then got steamed at him being a drunken pig and left. To quote Paul Rothchild, "I had to say, `Jim, Janis doesn`t think it would be a good idea for you two to get together again.` And they never did. He was crushed."
QUE ERIC CLAPTON O Q!?!? SHE NEVER DATED ERIC!!!
