Janis Joplin and Tom Jones? Huh?

Janis and Tom

Handwritten page of a diary dated December 5, 1969

…   older sister was watching the Tom Jones show on TV which I never bother with but she came up and said “one of YOUR people is going to be on it tonight” ha ha which means someone who can really rock out more than Tom Jones which by the way doesn’t take much. So I go down there and she has abandoned her Pepsi which I wipe off her cooties from and drink it because it still seems cold. Then Janis Joplin comes on! Wow. I mean Tom Jones should sing with her more often because he did actually keep pace with her screaming and he really doesn’t have such a corny voice when he’s not singing to old 30 year old women!
