1. Carly Simon

Ladies That Rock: Carly Simon on AXS TV
Carly Simmon suffered a severe stutter at just 8 years old. A psychiatrist tried unsuccessfully to cure Simon’s stuttering. Instead, Simon turned to singing and songwriting. “I felt so strangulated talking that I did the natural thing, which is to write songs because I could sing without stammering, as all stammerers can.”

2. Janis Joplin

Everyone who knows Janis Joplin is well aware of her infatuation for Southern Comfort. Southern Comfort enjoyed having an unofficial representative in Janis and thanked her for their free advertising by sending her a lynx coat!

3. Amy Winehouse

Part of Amy Winehouse’s edge was due to her noticeable tattoos. She had 14 known tattoos, including ‘Daddy’s Girl’ on her left arm for her father, and the name ‘Cynthia’ on her right arm in tribute of her Jewish grandmother.

4. Cher
