aw man. Janis would have been 70 today.
One of my favorite moments in all of film is from D.A. Pennebaker’s “Monterey Pop,” about the festival of 1967. Janis is on stage belting out an incredibly tortured passage from “Ball and Chain,” and the camera cuts to the audience, where no less than Cass Elliott is standing there, stunned, mouthing the words “Oh, wow.”
