Puckish – the Wood Nymph – a Jello and iron woman/girl. Yes, but the dragged-out lunatic portrayed by most of her biographers is not the person I knew.
Sure, we all took drugs. Yes, we had our down times – but the explosive emotion Janis gave to her singing and the reaching out for every bit of life’s experiences – those are the enormously engaging aspects of her that I remember.
Radiant and consuming.
- Grace Slick
