Janis Joplin vs Tina turner?
Who was a better rocker, I think Tina Turner.

Really, apples and oranges here. I prefer Tina's smoldering sexuality onstage, but others will argue for Janis.
Tina didn't explode on the scene. She spent years under the thumb of Ike, and built her own career from scratch.
Janis had the benefits of talent, Columbia records promoting her work and an adoring rock press (Rolling Stone, Crawdaddy). Janis was a meteorite with a brief flash; Tina is a comet still traveling.
But that's merely my subjective opinion.

Tina Turner, I also like a few songs by Janis.
Therés no winner in this poll, I thinK.
