27th Oct 2013, Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed died at the age of 71. An admitted hard drinker and drug user for many years, he underwent a liver transplant in Cleveland in April 2013. Afterwards he claimed on his website to be 'bigger and stronger'...

Keith Colville Sr Think still have velvet underground album in all these ol records use to play it way back. Think was obvious had a lot to say about drugs ,etc if I remember right. Maybe was to do with his life at the time not sure though been to long since played it. One day will have to go through them all again n use ol record player just havin to keep getting up n down to change em lol spoiled nowadays with remotes but what the hell have to get up to bang on ol reicever anyway to get it working and damn 8 tracks get hung up to so going to have to move up to cassettes I guess or maybe CDs Finally took record player out of ol car played 45s even on some bad roads it worked half the time but the 4 tracks were better had to admit after that until 8 came out ya those were the days lol

26th Oct 1970, A wake was held at the Lion's Share in San Anselmo, California to celebrate the life of Janis Joplin. The singer who died of an accidental drugs overdose had left $2,500 in her will to throw a wake party in the event...

Michael Rhodes I was in high school in the late 60's. Had an 8 trk in my car. A tape of her was among my collection played it all the time. Still have her music in my collection. To bad her addiction took her away from us. Luv her.she' still cool !
Ryan Dickert Even tho I was born in 1973 some time after her death I grow up herring her songs played over and over again (what few she made) Janis she got a voice that can touch your hart I can say for me Janis voice and sprint touches my hart even if your someone like me born a little after she died guess I guess for me it is cause she died in the same mouth as I was born in (73) I know she probably singing in haven cause that's what she liked doing
Mark Alan Arghyrou Yep Joplin had the chops thats for sure.Sang those blues sooo well.from the gut Yes it was sad how the sixties icons of the Hippie era passed to young ,but the music was most important then instead of whats goin on in todays musicians and singers with hefty contracts and not much talent in my opinion Janis and others in that time nailed it.
Ryan Dickert To also add to what I sad before I also read a lot about Janis watched a lot on here as well and they say since she was known to do drugs and drink that's what they said killed her cause on the day of her death she had a few new marks on her arm did two much on top of heavy drinking but tell me this then why when they found her in her holt room was she found in between the bed and nightstand with a broken nose mast up face if I remember right on what I read will holding money ( less then five dollars and some sense) still in hand they say she might been standing on bed will all drunk and on drugs that night more the other nights and fell from standing on bed and her drug and drinking use that everyone know about so they where so fast in saying that's how she died to me something a little strange wouldn't you say ( for all that may have read all about that night ) hmm Janis was on her way to become a big big star I fell that someone head her killed so sad what a pretty young lady with pretty voice
Nancy Belanger 😥That was a bummer. We were SAD. Janis was supposed to appear at FSU two weeks after. The Activities Director Judy and all of us NOLES devastated.
Barbara Figurski Loved her...still do. Music was amazing. Unlike you youngsters, I was 29 when she died. I remember too well.
Rosi Sanchez I was only a preschool aged girl when she passed away. I still will love her to the day when God calls me home. 🎸
Bill Coonley I was 14 years old, and very upset when she passed. It was only weeks after Jimi Hendrix died, so it was a lot to handle.
Paula Smith I've given my kids instructions to throw a wake for me. Minus the hash brownies
Keith Richards Janis billie holiday Bessie smith best female blues singers🎤🎤🎤
Wanda Swisher I never knew all that Bobby. Thank you for sharing that. She was one awesome Lady.
Anton Ziegler Always miss Janis Joplin
Jane Greening Janis you were too young to leave. We missed a lot of great music. RIP.
Lee Jacobus Poured herself into each song !!! Was up close at Santa Clara, mesmerized by her fishnet skirt = sensory overload !!!
Lee Jacobus Danielle ? Remember how we cried in the car that first nite after hearing her ?
Darrel Rimmer I always wished i knew her because she was so energetic and her music was so raw. :)
Lyda Beth Stanzione jails, institutions, and death, alcoholism does not discriminate...
Ralf Suarez 1969 and 1970 were very bad years. We lost a lot of great musicians that would have changed the future of the movement
Jim Goodrick She was taken from us way to early. Still miss her but am able to listen to her music.
Tomás Rios Janis is still alive in millions of hearts around the whole world....
Maria Logatto Hochman Another incredible talent gone too young .
Connie McColley RIP Janis.. saw this in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame..
Karen Clark Ah Janis died way too young.
Kenneth R. McMillan Hard to believe she has been gone over 46yr. Yet she continues to sell music, other artists continue to cover her music, & there is a play touring the country about her. Does anyone out there think that in 46yr from now anybody will even remember who in the hell Rhiana, Britany Spears, Christina Agulera, or Lil Kim were?
Bruce Barron Anyone got that recipe? LOL

Answer Man has this question answered. Check it out!

Janice Whitten There seems to be no end to the honking around the N. Park Ave./ Houston St. area. This mroning at about 8:35 a garbage truck , ( Martin Environmental Services ) had to honk. The people that are doing this are not able to control their impulses. To them , hurting other people any way they can is better than , well you figure it out. The city needs to actually do something about this real problem. The garbage truck that honked this morning ( Martin ) honked between the Mother Goose day care and a house where a fire truck and ambulance were late Tuesday afternoon. Meaning , that there are seriously ill , and in more than 1 case , terminally ill. Not to mention several 3rd shift workers. But these animals that are honking are honking because ( as a neighbor said to me ) " they are getting off on it ". The problem with people that enjoy hurting others is , that when and where does the hurting stop ? Does it stop after they kill someone ? The problem is , than no one knows where it stops , or when it stops. That is why the mayor , the police , and every city supervisor must identify each and every person that is honking in and around the N. park Ave. and Houston St. area , and take action against them. Criminal action , trespass warrants , etc. But something needs to because it is long overdue. I hope that the owner of Martin Environmental fires some people after reading this today. I wonder how he would feel if people drove by his home and honked constantly , and the same is true of the mayor.
