Today in 1969, Brian Jones left the Rolling Stones. He and the Andy Gibb Egg could have a lustrous-hair battle.

Ian Curtis

In almost every picture of Ian Curtis, he looks very tired, punctuated by a picture of him shooting invisible lasers out of his eyes.

I was going to make todays post Joan of Arc, because today in 1429 she was in Orleans. However, the first “Joan” that popped up in google was not Joan of Arc but Joan Jet. And why not? I love rock and roll, and when listening to that song, who doesn’t? Monsters, that’s who.

Janis Joplin

In highschool, my freshman social studies class tasked us with a report on an artist, accompanied by a presentation as the artist. One of my classmates “Maggie” reported on Janis Joplin, and for her presentation, wore some makeup (which I do not believe JJ did, but my report was on Marcel Duchamp, so what do I know). When my friend  “Steve” saw that Maggie wore makeup, he said, intending some light-hearted jest, “Ugh! What’d you do to your face?!”.  Maggie cried for the remainder of the class (the teacher let her present the next day) as Steve tried to apologize. It was not very productive in social studies that day.
