JANIS JOPLIN Passed Away 50 Years Ago – Only 27

The wonderful JANIS JOPLIN with her unique hoarse voice passed away 50 years ago today, on 4 October 1970, after an accidental heroin overdose. She was only 27 just like Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and blues pioneer Robert Johnson. Pretty creepy if you ask me. She was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame in 1995.

Piece Of My Heart‘ and ‘Me And Bobby McGee‘ are two of her most famous songs…

– PIECE OF MY HEART

– ME AND BOBBY MCGEE –
