1 - Janis....she is the meaning of female rocker, she felt every note and word of a song when she sang it, and the best part...she made you feel it right along with her.

2- Chrissie Hynde...beyond cool and an amazing talent. She has given new meaning to the word sexy when it comes to female rockers.

Joni Mitchell - She had a perfect combination of voice, look and songwriting magic that made her perfect for the times. Although she didn't attend Woodstock, she wrote the song that became a CSNY classic. She also wrote Both Side Now for Judy Collins. Her Court and Spark album made her a mainstream talent...but she never really took the bait and remains an under appreciated talent. Her song "River" has become a Christmas Classic.

The Wilson Sisters (Heart)- Oh the feeling these ladies brought out in a young teen's jeans...and soul. Ann and Nancy Wilson started out of the Seattle area and headed for stardom. These girls proved that hard rock wasn't just a boys club. Their combination of hard rock tunes packaged in the shell of two hot sisters was a smash. Their album Dreamboat Annie launched them into the upper level of touring rock bands. That album brought us the rock classics Magic Man and Crazy on You. Led Zep was their main influence.

Carly Simon

Carly Simon was one of the sexiest, sultriest women of the 70s and she still makes music that makes you think about life and love and heartache.

Deborah Harry

Debbieharry1.jpg

Deborah Harry put a beautiful face on the ugly world of punk. She was tough and cool and almost otherworldly.

Kim Deal- Bassist and backing vocalist for Pixies. In case you didn't know, that makes her really cool.

and what about her being the frontwoman of the Breeders? not worth a mention? ;)

she also had some funny aliases/stage names like "Mrs. John Murphy" and "Tammy Ampersand" (as in Tammy Ampersand & the Amps)

All these artists are great, and I don't know who I'll end up voting for. But long before any of these great female artists could be honored, THIS woman blazed the trail for them all to follow....

PATSY CLINE

I don't know if everyone is aware of the contributions that Ms Cline has made to popular music, and to women in music, and all before the age of 30, when she tragically died. Not just to Country Music either. Patsy Cline has been voted #11 of the 100 Greatest Women in Rock & Roll. Take just a moment to read some of her story here at wiki:

Patsy Cline

About Patsy's original Greatest Hits album, released in 1967, wiki says this:

One of the most heard Country Music albums of all time, Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits, has sold 10 million copies worldwide since its 1967 release. Bob Ludwig remastered the set, and it has been reissued in its original cover art. In 2005, the album Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits was certified by the RIAA as Diamond (designating the sale of 10 million). That same year, the album was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for staying on the overall music charts the longest of any female artist of any music genre in history.

Rayzor stole my Stevie! ;)

My towering reviews will have to wait, however... I have very little time at the moment...

1- Patti Smith - She broke it all.

2- Carole King - Obvious

patti20smith20horseswl9.jpg

"Gloria" - Patti Smith

She was the first punk woman and she had that "charme de la décadence" which made her an icon. Rock wasn´t the same after 1975 for girls.

kingcarole1yr6.jpg

"It´s Too Late" - Carole King

Although she seemed a bit square, she was the greatest among the lady songwriters. She´s a bit of history.

Grace Slick- Incredible voice, great looks (back in the day, anyway), what more could you want?

Passion_pop_selfcontrol07.JPG

Tim, in any case, you know that Grace Slick -though I don´t think she´s really such a creative girl, but she´s still my favorite :cool: - wil always be my #1... :thumbsup:

It will be hard... Carly Simon, Debbie Harry, Chryssie Hynde...
