Janis Joplin, who happened to be among my favorite rock singers, passed away on October 4, 1970, just 50 years ago. She performed twice at San Bernardino’s Swing Auditorium. IF YOU LOVE LEFSE RISE YOUR HAND Shirt

His first performance was on April 27, 1968, when Joplin was a singer for Big Brother and the IF YOU LOVE LEFSE RISE YOUR HAND Shirt Holding Company. The opening was Sweetwater and The Peanut Butter Conspiracy. What an era for band names.
And after she formed the Kozmic Blues Band to support her as a solo artist, Joplin made her comeback on March 28, 1969, with opening performances by Lee Michaels and MC5. MC5 – The Rage Against The Machine of Their Time – in San Bernardino? Rub.
However, other than the concert flyers or posters, no information about the concert appeared. Those hepcats at The Sun seem to have bypassed both programs, based on a troll of the IF YOU LOVE LEFSE RISE YOUR HAND Shirt archives
So let me open it up to the old rockers in my audience.
There is an old saying that everything happens according to three. I often wonder why this is and have watched things go this way.
Over the past week, I have been through this in a way that makes me think about this old adage.
While I was listening to music one morning, a song that came out caught my attention. It’s called Walk Hand in Hand With Me. It has a message that makes me think about my past.
A day or two later, Carole and Hugh Beal from Brick, New Jersey, sent me an email titled Walk With Me While I Age. This has taken me on another journey in my past.
Finally, a column for Gord Christmas in last week’s Reformer, titled I Wanna Hold Your Hand, completed the IF YOU LOVE LEFSE RISE YOUR HAND Shirt development in three proverbs.
The result of these wonderful stories is a quick journey in my life and how holding hands and walking with someone has affected my life.
My first recollection was going for a walk with my mother. Hand in hand, we’ll walk from home on Sherman Street to Jack Lound’s grocery store on Peel Street. I remember this because there is always a gift at the end of the IF YOU LOVE LEFSE RISE YOUR HAND Shirt hike. Peel Street, as I remember, is still alive with businesses.
Then there was my brother, Larry, who would take me to South School and kindergarten. This is a connection that has lasted a lifetime even though most of our lives are very far apart.
The next hands-on experience was walking to the arena with my public school lover and skating in that great arena music.
After that was my first date with Kay. We went hand in hand to the Strand Theater for our first show. Early on, we went hand in hand to the Norfolk Theater to see the second show.
Five years later, we walked hand in hand again up the aisle of St. Joseph’s. James United put together a whole new life.
