How never-seen-before letters reveal the inner world of Janis Joplin
Janis Lyn Joplin January 19, — October 4, was an American singer-songwriter who sang rock , soul and blues music. One of the most successful and widely known rock stars of her era, she was noted for her powerful mezzo-soprano vocals  and "electric" stage presence. In , Joplin rose to fame following an appearance at Monterey Pop Festival , where she was the lead singer of the then little-known San Francisco psychedelic rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company.
She appeared at the Woodstock festival and the Festival Express train tour. Joplin died of an accidental heroin overdose in at age 27 , after releasing three albums. A fourth album, Pearl , was released in January , just over three months after her death. It reached number one on the Billboard charts. She was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in She remains one of the top-selling musicians in the United States, with Recording Industry Association of America certifications of She had two younger siblings, Michael and Laura.
The family belonged to the Churches of Christ denomination. Her parents felt that Janis needed more attention than their other children. Joplin stated that she was ostracized and bullied in high school. I read, I painted, I thought. I didn't hate niggers.
Joplin graduated from high school in and attended Lamar State College of Technology in Beaumont, Texas , during the summer  and later the University of Texas at Austin UT , though she did not complete her college studies. Her name is Janis Joplin. Joplin cultivated a rebellious manner and styled herself partly after her female blues heroines and partly after the Beat poets.
She left Texas in January "Just to get away," she said, "because my head was in a much different place" ,  hitchhiking with her friend Chet Helms to North Beach, San Francisco. Still in San Francisco in , Joplin and future Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen recorded a number of blues standards, which incidentally featured Kaukonen's wife Margareta using a typewriter in the background.
In , Joplin was arrested in San Francisco for shoplifting. During the two years that followed, her drug use increased and she acquired a reputation as a "speed freak" and occasional heroin user. In May , Joplin's friends in San Francisco, noticing the detrimental effects on her from regularly injecting methamphetamine she was described as "skeletal"  and "emaciated"  , persuaded her to return to Port Arthur.
During that month, her friends threw her a bus-fare party so she could return to her parents in Texas. She avoided drugs and alcohol, adopted a beehive hairdo, and enrolled as an anthropology major at Lamar University in nearby Beaumont, Texas. During her time at Lamar University, she commuted to Austin to sing solo, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar.
One of her performances was at a benefit by local musicians for Texas bluesman Mance Lipscomb , who was suffering with ill health. Joplin became engaged to Peter de Blanc in the fall of In and , Joplin commuted from her family's Port Arthur home to Beaumont, Texas, where she had regular sessions with a psychiatric social worker named Bernard Giarritano  at a counseling agency that was funded by the United Fund, which after her death changed its name to the United Way.
Giarritano tried to reassure her that she did not have to use narcotics in order to succeed in the music business. Approximately a year before Joplin joined Big Brother and the Holding Company , she recorded seven studio tracks with her acoustic guitar. Among the songs she recorded were her original composition for the song "Turtle Blues" and an alternate version of "Cod'ine" by Buffy Sainte-Marie.
These tracks were later issued as a new album in , titled This is Janis Joplin by James Gurley. In , Joplin's bluesy vocal style attracted the attention of the San Francisco-based psychedelic rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company , which had gained some renown among the nascent hippie community in Haight-Ashbury.
Helms sent his friend Travis Rivers to find her in Austin, Texas, where she had been performing with her acoustic guitar, and to accompany her to San Francisco. Aware of her previous nightmare with drug addiction in San Francisco, Rivers insisted that she inform her parents face-to-face of her plans, and he drove her from Austin to Port Arthur he waited in his car while she talked with her startled parents before they began their long drive to San Francisco.
Joplin joined Big Brother on June 4, In June, Joplin was photographed at an outdoor concert in San Francisco that celebrated the summer solstice. The image, which was later published in two books by David Dalton, shows her before she relapsed into drugs.
Due to persistent persuading by keyboardist and close friend Stephen Ryder, Joplin avoided drugs for several weeks. She made Travis Rivers, with whom she shared an apartment upon their arrival in San Francisco, promise that using needles would not be allowed there.
I had never seen anybody explode like that. She was screaming and crying and Travis walked in. She screamed at him: 'We had a pact! You promised me!
There wouldn't be any of that in front of me! I said, 'They're just doing mescaline,' because that's what I thought it was. She said, 'You don't understand! I can't see that! I just can't stand to see that! A San Francisco concert from that summer was recorded and released in the album Cheaper Thrills. In July, all five bandmates and guitarist James Gurley 's wife Nancy moved to a house in Lagunitas, California , where they lived communally.
They often partied with the Grateful Dead , who lived less than two miles away. She had a short relationship and longer friendship with founding member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan. The band went to Chicago for a four-week engagement in August , then found themselves stranded after the promoter ran out of money when their concerts did not attract the expected audience levels, and he was unable to pay them. The pair lived together as a couple for a few months.
Two songs from the second of Big Brother's two sets at Monterey, which they played on Sunday, were filmed their first set, which was on Saturday, was not filmed, though it was audio-recorded. Some sources, including a Joplin biography by Ellis Amburn, claim that she was dressed in thrift store hippie clothes or second-hand Victorian clothes during the band's Saturday set,  but still photographs do not appear to have survived.
She is seen wearing an expensive gold tunic dress with matching pants. Elliot and the audience are seen in sunlight, but Sunday's Big Brother performance was filmed in the evening. Only "Ball and Chain" was included in the Monterey Pop film that was released to cinemas throughout the United States in and shown on television in the s. Those who did not attend the Monterey Pop Festival saw the band's performance of "Combination of the Two" for the first time in when The Criterion Collection released the box set.
For the remainder of , even after Big Brother signed with Albert Grossman, they performed mainly in California. On February 16, ,  the group began its first East Coast tour in Philadelphia, and the following day gave their first performance in New York City at the Anderson Theater. Live at Winterland '68 , recorded at the Winterland Ballroom on April 12 and 13, , features Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company at the height of their mutual career working through a selection of tracks from their albums.
A recording became available to the public for the first time in when Sony Music Entertainment released the compact disc. On July 31, , Joplin made her first nationwide television appearance when the band performed on This Morning , an ABC daytime minute variety show hosted by Dick Cavett. Shortly thereafter, network employees wiped the videotape, though the audio survives.
In and , Joplin made three appearances on Cavett's prime-time program. Video was preserved and excerpts have been included in most documentaries about Joplin. Audio of her appearance has not been used since then. Sometime in , the band's billing was changed to "Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company,"  and the media coverage given to Joplin generated resentment within the band. Janis Joplin can sing the chic off any listener. For her first major studio recording, Joplin played a major role in the arrangement and production of the songs that would comprise Big Brother and the Holding Company's second album, Cheap Thrills.
During the recording sessions, produced by John Simon , Joplin was said to be the first person to enter the studio and the last person to leave. Footage of Joplin and the band in the studio shows Joplin in great form and taking charge during the recording for " Summertime ". The album featured a cover design by counterculture cartoonist Robert Crumb. Although Cheap Thrills sounded as if it consisted of concert recordings, like on "Combination of the Two" and "I Need a Man to Love", only "Ball and Chain" was actually recorded in front of a paying audience; the rest of the tracks were studio recordings.
On September 14, , culminating a three-night engagement together at Fillmore West, fans thronged to a concert that Bill Graham publicized as the last official concert of Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company. Despite Graham's announcement that the Fillmore West gig was Big Brother's last concert with Joplin, the band—with Joplin still as lead vocalist—toured the U. Reflecting Joplin's crossover appeal, two October performances at a roller rink in Alexandria, Virginia, were reviewed by John Segraves of the conservative Washington Evening Star at a time when the Washington metropolitan area's hard rock scene was in its infancy.
Shortly she will be merely Janis Joplin, a vocalist singing folk rock on her first album as a single. Whatever she does and whatever she sings she'll do it well because her vocal talents are boundless. This is the way she came across in a huge, high-ceilinged roller skating rink without any acoustics but, thankfully a good enough sound system behind her. In a proper room, I would imagine there would be no adjectives to describe her. Gabriel Mekler, who produced Kozmic Blues , told publicist-turned-biographer Myra Friedman after Joplin's death that she had lived in his Los Angeles house during the June recording sessions at his insistence so he could keep her away from drugs and her drug-using friends.
Joplin's appearances with the Kozmic Blues Band in Europe were released in cinemas, in multiple documentaries. Janis , which was reviewed by the Washington Post on March 21, ,  shows Joplin arriving in Frankfurt by plane and waiting inside a bus next to the Frankfurt venue, while an American female fan who is visiting Germany expresses enthusiasm to the camera no security was used in Frankfurt, so by the end of the concert, the stage was so packed with people the band members could not see each other.
Janis also includes interviews with Joplin in Stockholm and from her visit to London , for her gig at Royal Albert Hall. The London interview was dubbed with a voiceover in the German language for broadcast on German television. John Byrne Cooke, road manager for Joplin and the Kozmic Blues Band, wrote a book published in in which he revealed the illegal status of Joplin's ongoing use of narcotics. On Kozmic Blues' tour of Europe, Janis was terrified at every border crossing and customs inspection, knowing that the works and the smack she had stashed on her person could send her directly to jail on a tough rap to beat in foreign courts.
But she was unwilling to go without, so she carried a supply everywhere, despite the risks. As Dick Cavett interviewed Joplin, she admitted that she had a terrible time touring in Europe, claiming that audiences there are very uptight and don't " get down ". Released in September , the Kozmic Blues album was certified gold later that year but did not match the success of Cheap Thrills.
Joplin wanted a horn section similar to that featured by the Chicago Transit Authority ; her voice had the dynamic qualities and range not to be overpowered by the brighter horn sound. Some music critics, however, including Ralph J. Gleason of the San Francisco Chronicle , were negative. Gleason wrote that the new band was a "drag" and Joplin should "scrap" her new band and "go right back to being a member of Big Brother

Joplin first rose to prominence in the late s as the lead singer of the psychedelic-acid rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company, and later as a solo artist with her more soulful and bluesy backing groups, The Kozmic Blues Band and The Full Tilt Boogie Band. She was one of the more popular acts at the Monterey Pop Festival and later became one of the major attractions to the Woodstock festival and the Festival Express train tour. Forgot your password?

Janis Joplin’s Breakthrough Album: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Cheap Thrills’
Big Brother and the Holding Company were a band before the summer of They had gigs, fans and even a full-length record ready for release. Monterey was a gold rush for the recording industry, and major labels flocked to stake out their claim. For Big Brother, their trajectory would become the quintessential overnight success gone awry. Within a year, the searing spotlight trained on Joplin would cause the band to come unglued. But during its brief big-league run, Big Brother assembled their first and only true artistic statement for a global audience. Yet it also reflects the commodification of the fading hippie dream.

Main page. I vote "No": she was a legitimately great blues singer with correspondingly huge personal problems, which often interfered with her music and ended her life only a few years into her recording career.
