Profile of the performer Janis Joplin: Born 19 January 1943, Port Arthur, Texas, USA Died 04 October 1970, Los Angeles, California, USA [b]Joplin[/b] was the eldest of three children, Michael and Laura, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School where she began painting and listening to the blues of [a=Bessie Smith], [a=Leadbelly], [a=Big Mama Thornton] and [a=Odetta] with the rebellious kids of the neighborhood. She graduated in 1960 and, in 1962, the university she left in the middle of her studies ran the headline in its campus paper "She dares to be different". She hit San Francisco in 1963, first living in North Beach and later Haight-Ashbury where she begun the drug and alcohol habits that would tragically end her life. During this period she recorded a session with [a=Jorma Kaukonen] that later appeared as the bootleg "The Typewriter Tape". Noticeably suffering from her addictions she returned to Port Arthur in May 1965 and 'straightened up' for a year, enrolling as a sociology major at Lamar University. In 1966, at the invitation of Chet Helms whom she'd known as a teenager, she returned to California and was recruited as the singer for [a=Big Brother & The Holding Company] in June, appearing at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco on her first public performance with them. In August 1966 the group signed with [l=Mainstream Records] and recorded an album. However, it was not released until a year later and in the meantime, with very little reward, they moved with the [a=Grateful Dead] to a house in Lagunitas, California. It was there that Joplin relapsed into hard drug use. Joplin and the band signed with [a=Albert Grossman] in November 1967 and released [r559560] in 1968. This release was the culmination of a year in which Joplin had wowed audiences at the Monterey Pop Festival, the Anderson Theater in New York, the Wake For Martin Luther King Jr concert with [a=Jimi Hendrix] in New York and on TV's prime-time Dick Cavett Show. Joplin then left the band after a Family Dog benefit gig in December 1968 and formed a back-up group, the [a=Kozmic Blues Band], releasing an album in September 1969. The group disbanded three months later, with Joplin again suffering from her dependencies. After taking time out in Brazil with friend Linda Gravenites, who was her costume designer and praised by Joplin in the May 1968 issue of Vogue, Joplin returned to America and formed the [a=Full Tilt Boogie Band] which began touring in May 1970. She also appeared in reunion concerts with Big Brother at this time. She then began recording a new album in September 1970 with producer [a=Paul A. Rothchild]. By Saturday, October 3rd Joplin had already laid down a number of takes at Sunset Sound Studios in LA, including "Mercedes Benz". On the following day she failed to appear and John Cooke, the road manager of Full Tilt Boogie Band, drove to the Landmark Motor Hotel where Joplin was staying. There he found her dead on the floor of her room, the result of a seizure caused by a heroin overdose. Joplin was cremated and her ashes scattered from a plane into the Pacific Ocean. Her unfinished recordings were assembled and the result was the posthumously released [r755239] in 1971. It became the biggest selling album of her career. Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 (Performer).
