 Late Tina Turner would be pop, but her early years, esp with Ike, were Rock & Soul

Pat Benetar pop, I'll give ya that one, And Stevie Nicks, somewhat.

But the rest are rockers

She has some pop tunes, sure, but I think she can rock with the best of 'em...

It's been 45 years since BB&tHC played Monterey. 

 

What is amazing, IMO, is that Big Brother was not that good of a band, and Gurley, in this performance was close to horrible.  But Janis' performance raised this to an incredible height.

 

45 years is a long time in Rock.  Surprised that noone has come close to taking that mantle.

Depends on what you like if you take it to the blues, Miss Etta James could kick her ass all over the place, and I like me some Janis.

This. But because rock formed from the blues, it sort all because relative.

There are many blues women who let it out, so to speak.  Koko Taylor, Rory Block come to mind. 

Although there is a thin line between blues and rock, IMO, BB&THC were rock as opposed to Etta, Koko, & Ruth Brown.  (All of whom I love)

Tina Weymouth is who came to mind when opening this thread.  Mind you, I LOVE bass players to the point of potentially going gay for one.  My wife is well aware of this.  

 

Tina is by far my favorite female musician of all time though.  I'd go lesbian for her
