Certain musical figures go beyond the scope of sound and take their magic to another dimension and one of the artist that I really admire other than Cass Elliot is Janis Joplin. I find it fascinating that Janis and Cass have many similarities, they were both:

Born in the early 1940's.
Their birthdays are on the 19th day of the month, Janis' birthday is January 19 and Cass' is September 19.
The oldest kids in the families and the oldest of 3 children.
Had a sister who is 6 years younger than them and a brother were 10 years younger than them.
Had difficult high school years.
Performed at the Monterey Pop Festival.
Had big hits in the late 1960's
Members of successful groups.
Had successful solo careers.
Were pin-up chicks.
Had tattoos.
Were arrested.
Were found dead.

It is really amazing that these two legendary artists had many things in common. I guess that's why I admire them so much.
