If you never heard of her you must be living on Mars, I guess.
Unfortunately, she partied too hard and messed up her young life with heroin.
On 4 October 1970, after an accidental overdose she passed away, only 27, joining
the sad 27-club (Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, blues pioneer
Robert Johnson/. Joplin was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame in 1995.
“All of a sudden, someone threw me in front of this rock and roll band.
I decided then and there that was it. I never wanted to do anything else.“
Let’s remember her with these two classics ‘Piece Of My Heart‘
and ‘Me And Bobby McGee‘ are two of her most famous songs.
