Picture Trivia
          On her prime, singer-songwriter Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was called “The Queen of Rock and Roll” at “The Queen of Psychedelic Soul.” It’s just so unfortunate that Joplin was among the many great musical artists ruined and killed by drugs. Joplin died of heroin overdose on October 4, 1970.           Do you know that Joplin had a duet with the legendary Tina Turner? It happened in 1969, at the time when Joplin’s career was starting to pick-up, during the Thanksgiving Day concert of the Rolling Stone at the Madison Square Garden.
