We remember Janis Joplin (1943-1970)





We remember Janis Joplin who was born in Port Arthur, Texas, on this day in 1943.      
She started singing with the band "Big Brother and the Holding Company" in 1966.    In 1968, they released a very popular  album "Cheap Thrills". 

Janis eventually went solo but but died in  1970 at age 27.   After her death, the album "Pearl" became a huge bestseller.    It included her biggest hit, "Me and Bobby McGee".    Later, a "greatest hits" was released.

A very tragic story.
