Piece of My Heart…

The bohemian style seems to be coming back lately, and I’m surprised I actually like it. Who better than Janis Joplin to demonstrate that style with her amazing voice and outgoing personality? Although I never thought of Janis as a true beauty, there was something about her that was overall lovable.

“The Rose” with Bette Midler was based on her life, and it’s no secret she lived a fast life, filled with drugs. According to my friend, Scott’s Find a Death site, “After recording on the evening of the 3rd, she and band member Ken Pearson had a couple of drinks at Barney’s Beanery. Just after midnight, they drove back to the Landmark Hotel , at 7047 Franklin. Inside room 105, she shot up her last fix of heroin. She returned to the hotel lobby to get change for a five dollar bill, for cigarettes. She chatted casually with the hotel clerk, who later said she seemed perfectly natural (and he didn’t know who she was). When she returned to her room, she collapsed beside the bed, almost breaking her nose. She was wedged against a bedside table, with a cigarette in her hand.

John Cook, one of her band members, became alarmed when she didn’t show up for the recording session the next morning, and after unsuccessfully trying to reach her by telephone, he went to the hotel, broke down the door and found her dead. She was 27 years old.”

Because of her death at the age of 27, she became part of the famous “27 Club,” which includes other musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain.

Hope you had a great weekend friends!

  1. I remember when Janis was popular. She had an identity much like Amy Winehouse. The fact that she died so young made her an icon I think. So tragic.

  2. She was a talent! My friend’s mom was roommates with her for a little while in San Francisco. She was very straight laced and we all know Janis was not. It makes for an interesting story that’s for sure!

  3. Oh, I love Janis! Her music is so passionate and soulful. I saw a documentary on her recently that showed a ton of her live performances. She was so unique.
