Whaa? I only know about 3 of the names mentioned here! Odd...
Well, off the top of my head:
-Bonnie Rait, without a doubt, is the best. she ROCKS your bloomin' SOCKS off!! Bluesrock, baby!
-Joan Baez. She's just so beautifully trippy
-Janis Joplin. One word: EPIC
-Anita O'Day. A 40's/50's jazz singer, very iconic, with a sweet voice and great scatting
....those are all I can think of right now =) ROCK ONN, FEMALES!
