Amazing Cover Songs: Bobby McGee by Melissa Etheridge
Janis Joplin was a brilliant artist with a heartbreaking life. Even though she died at the very young age of 27, she made a huge impact on female musicians and rock n roll. As the very first female rock star, not many women have the presence to handle one of her songs or the moxie to make an attempt. Unless…you happen to be Melissa Etheridge.
Melisa has the talent, the soul, the passion, and the moxie to give a Janis song exactly what it deserves. Others have tried but Melissa does it best in her versions of Bobby McGee. Melissa, as far as we know, hasn’t suffered anywhere near the pain as Janis, but her passion is a close match. Amazing role model, activist, and musician- Melissa rocks!
