Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Was surprised a couple years ago when the Cavett Show DVDs came out to see just how smart and witty Janis was when (relatively) sober! She made Raquel Welch look like a babbling airhead on one episode discussing politics!
Still breaks my heart. If you feel like having your heart broken, read Myra Friedman's Buried Alive.
Lots-o-rock-n-roll history in that hotel, of course, some of it documented by Leonard Cohen who's written a couple-three about his time there with Janis. I’ve read that he’s regretted the indiscretion of revealing some of those lovemaking details though, as he feels now it wasn’t the respectful thing to do.
Happy Birthday to Janis and me!
