bloody hell!!I remember having a soujourne to Pierre Le Chaise cemetery in Paris to visit Jim M and writers etc!
there’s a little bit about leroy, linda and janis half way down the page at :
probably Oaklawn cemetery on hook rd in Darby. Bessie Smith is also buried there.
yeah, bessie smith. i’d like to meet up.
i wana visit with the lizard king, that would be awesomeee.(:

Linda told me Janis drove the stone across the USA by herself in that painted porche…
Linda and Janis had planned to do it together…
they both studied the blues (self taught)… Ma Rainy, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday
and lots of others less known… it’s in the books now, easy to find…
Linda and i went to the grave two or three times…
Janis had made a promise to put a stone on her grave… Bessie “died on the steps of a philadelphia hospital, Janis Joplin put a tombstone on the grave… and the smooth… tell me what happened to the smooth… ” from a Linda Waldron song… somewhere i have a copy…
Janis used to pick Linda up at the sanfrancisco airport in this porche, too…
she’d throw a fur coat over her just from honolulu and they’d party…
