Janis Joplin on the cover of Newsweek

Larawang Tribiya
          Sa kaniyang kasikatan, tinawag ang singer-songwriter na si Janis Joplin (1943-1970) na “The Queen of Rock and Roll” at “The Queen of Psychedelic Soul.” Nakapanghihinayang lamang na si Joplin ay naging isa sa napakaraming magagaling na mang-aawit na sinira at pinaslang ng droga. Nasawi si Joplin noong October 4, 1970 dahil sa heroin overdose.
          Alam niyo ba na nagkaroon ng duet si Joplin noong 1969 sa sumisikat pa lamang na si Tina Turner? Ito ay naganap sa Thanksgiving concert ng Rolling Stone sa Madison Square Garden.
