Do you have any suggestions?
I don't know...
My bet is... Joni Mitchell, because I like and respect her music. I think she's influential.
I reject Patti Smith, because I respect but dislike her music.

Your choice, pls

Janis Joplin - She kinda opened the door for women to get into rock.
Coolest gal in rock? - Joan Jett

Ya see she is another one who is credited in breaking up the Beatles soo... probably not.

I will agree with everyone and say Janis Joplin BUT Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart were probably the most influential AFTER Janis, they basically opened a door for Blondie, Joan Jett, etc..

Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane, Carole King, and Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart. They weren't as influential as Mitchell or Joplin, but they definitely had an effect on how women were received in rock.

What Janis Joplin & Grace Slick actually did? They used to sing someone else's stuff... Every woman can.

Isn't "Important Woman" an oxymoron?

Just kidding.

I'd say Janis Joplin.

Isnt Joan Baez a folkie??? Not really Classic rock imo.


Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan are folkie but they have had an impact (Bob in particular) on almost every rock entity...

True, but Bob kinda crossed over too.

I guess you're right stressing that Baez is rather folky. She flirted with other areas back in 75 and so on, though to a far lesser degree than Dylan and Mitchell ))

In terms of CR? Not exactly They're precious because they're rare. I'm talking about masterminds let alone figureheads and puppets.
