I know, his name isn't Bobby or McGee but OMG Janis Joplin's song hit me hard this morning.

So naturally I drew this.

"Me and Bobby McGee" by Janis Joplin

Also, I feel like I was born in the wrong era. I mean, yeah, 90's kid....whooo....but the 60's, 70's, and 80's were happenin'! Don't cha think? If not, guess it's just me. Heh.

God I love hippies >w< Love Gypsies too, but that's another story for another day. :3

    Well some things are timeless and I think when you get to a certain age you learn to appreciate things that aren't necessarily "your era" like anyone who enjoys classical music obviously wasn't around during the classical period. So basically being born 40 years after the music you enjoy is the same thing. In another 40 years I'm sure there will still be people who enjoy Janice Joplin but wish they were born 80 years sooner. So long post short enjoy what you enjoy. There's really no age limit on enjoyment.

      I have to actually disagree with the first statement. Many people today disregard the earlier 1900's as too old to be good. Just like many dislike country music (which I actually like as well), many people today don't even know who the Eagles, Journey, Billy Joel, and many other old time rock artists, are. It's a sad trend, but honestly, who cares about Katy Perry or Lady Gaga? They're young and on a crash course for trying to keep up with what's already been done. Same goes for many other artists. For example, rock singers of any type have Freddie Mercury, KISS, and all the other good ages of Rock to contend with. Pop singers have Madonna and Micheal Jackson. Country, well...that's up for debate.

      But you get what I'm sayin'? Music has an age and era....but it takes someone who is open minded to reach out and give it new life. Someone to love it again. I mean, I could honestly name off a good handful of artists no one's ever heard of from the early 50's to late 80's.

        Hmm I think I see what you mean. I guess I myself am one of those open minded people too. The thing I didn't realize till you said it is that a lot of people aren't like us. They seem to confine themselves musically. It probably also explains how absolute garbage becomes so popular.

        But I still think there will be open minded curious people out there decades from now that want to hear Michael Jackson's hits and the doors eagles the byrds Elton John Joni Mitchell the who rolling stones acdc areosmith. I love all those bands. A little out of order there I know.

        I was born in 78 btw. And yes the 80s were great.
