Description
The soulful singer(born in Port Arthur, Texas on January 19, 1943) rose to prominence in the mid '60s with the psychedelic blues band Big Brother & The Holding Company, which had a breakthrough appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival in August, 1967. Following the group's self-titled debut that year, they released the best-selling 'Cheap Thrills' (which featured a cover design by counterculture cartoonist Robert Crumb) in 1968. Joplin left the band to form her own Kozmic Blues Band in early 1969. She later delivered a galvanizing performance at Woodstock on August 16, 1969. In early 1970, she formed her Full Tilt Boogie band. On October 4, 1970, Joplin died of a heroin overdose at age 27, just 16 days after the death of Jimi Hendrix, who was also 27. Her posthumously-released album 'Pearl' became the biggest-selling album of Joplin's career on the strength of her hit, "Me and Bobby McGee."
