She played some gigs, including a side-stage performance at the Monterey Folk Festival—but her career didn't gain much traction.
Joplin then spent some time in New York City, where she hoped to have better luck getting her career off the ground, but her drinking and drug use she'd begun regularly using speed, or amphetamine, among other drugs there proved to be detrimental to her musical aspirations.
In , she left San Francisco and returned home in an effort to get herself together again. Back in Texas, Joplin took a break from her music and her hard-partying lifestyle, and dressed conservatively, putting her long, often messy hair into a bun and doing everything else she could to appear straight-laced.
But the conventional life was not for her, and her desire to pursue her musical dreams wouldn't remain submerged for long. Joplin slowly returned to performing, and in May , was recruited by friend Travis Rivers to audition for a new psychedelic rock band based in San Francisco, Big Brother and the Holding Company.
At the time, the group was managed by another longtime friend of Joplin's, Chet Helms. Big Brother, whose members included James Gurley, Dave Getz, Peter Albin and Sam Andrew, was part of the burgeoning San Francisco music scene of the late s; among the other bands involved in this scene were the Grateful Dead.
Joplin blew the band away during her audition, and was quickly offered membership into the group. In her early days with Big Brother, she sang only a few songs and played the tambourine in the background.
But it wasn't long before Joplin assumed a bigger role in the band, as Big Brother developed quite a following in the Bay Area.
Most of the praise, however, focused on Joplin's incredible vocals. Fueled by heroin, amphetamines and the bourbon she drank straight from the bottle during gigs, Joplin's unrestrained sexual style and raw, gutsy sound mesmerized audiences—and all of this attention caused some tension between Joplin and her bandmates.
After hearing Joplin at Monterey, Columbia Records President Clive Davis wanted to sign the band. While their recordings for Mainstream never found much of an audience, Big Brother's first album for Columbia, Cheap Thrills , was a huge hit.
While the album was wildly successful—quickly becoming a certified gold record with songs like "Piece of My Heart" and "Summertime"—creating it had been a challenging process, causing even more problems between Joplin and band's other members.
The album was produced by John Simon, who'd had the band do take after take in an attempt to create a technically perfect sound.
One of the most gifted and talented singer-songwriters of the s, Joplin had also suffered from serious substance abuse issues.
Her friend Peggy Caserta recalled in her memoir, I Ran Into Some Trouble , that the two somethings commonly shared the same batch of heroin.
All that was left of the star by October 7, however, was a cremated pile of ashes that her family privately scattered from a plane into the Pacific Ocean.
Wikimedia Commons In college, Joplin reportedly often went barefoot and always had an autoharp on her. Shortly after Joplin died, rumors spread that she had overdosed on an unusually potent batch of heroin.
Investigators claimed that Joplin had taken a lethal dose of heroin only to purchase cigarettes in the lobby downstairs and return to her bed to die.
But speaking from experience, Caserta said this was not possible. Like how they found Philip Seymour Hoffman. The s arguably yielded the most experimental shift in modern American music.
The post-Eisenhower period birthed new trains of thought, sparked as much by psychedelic drug experimentation as by the social and cultural upheaval of the Vietnam War.
She was only 24 years old and her singing career, barely five. Joplin war bei diesem Auftritt stark alkoholisiert, wirkte aufgeschwemmt, verbraucht und ihre Stimme brach oft.
Ihre Plattenfirma verweigerte aus diesem Grund anfänglich die Erlaubnis, diesen Auftritt filmisch in der Dokumentation Woodstock zu zeigen.
Im Jahr trat Joplin im Fernsehen bei Ed Sullivan und Dick Cavett auf. Die Interviews mit Cavett sind auf dem posthum veröffentlichten Album Janis zu hören.
Ebenfalls begab sich die Kozmic Blues Band auf eine zweimonatige Europatournee. Ihr einziges Konzert in Deutschland fand am April in der Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt am Main statt.
Auf der offiziellen Website ist unter dem Datum Der Titel Raise Your Hand auf der posthum veröffentlichten LP Farewell Song wurde während des Frankfurter Konzerts live aufgenommen.
Ebenfalls wurde Joplin in Tampa Florida inhaftiert, weil sie einen Polizisten beleidigt hatte. Sie wurde aber nach einem Konzert wegen obszöner Sprache und Fluchens auf der Bühne zu einer Geldstrafe von US-Dollar verurteilt.
Um von ihrer Sucht nach Alkohol, Heroin , Aufputschmitteln und anderen Drogen loszukommen, plante Joplin einen Urlaub in Südamerika und reiste im Februar zum Karneval nach Rio de Janeiro.
Zurück in Kalifornien nahm Janis Joplin ihre unstete Lebensweise wieder auf. Im April wurde ihre dritte Band, die Full Tilt Boogie Band , zusammengestellt.
Diese stellte sich für sie als Glücksgriff heraus. Das Team harmonierte emotional und musikalisch. In July, all five bandmates and guitarist James Gurley 's wife Nancy moved to a house in Lagunitas, California , where they lived communally.
They often partied with the Grateful Dead , who lived less than two miles away. She had a short relationship and longer friendship with founding member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan.
The band went to Chicago for a four-week engagement in August , then found themselves stranded after the promoter ran out of money when their concerts did not attract the expected audience levels, and he was unable to pay them.
In late , Big Brother switched managers from Chet Helms to Julius Karpen. One of Joplin's earliest major performances in was at the Mantra-Rock Dance , a musical event held on January 29 at the Avalon Ballroom by the San Francisco Hare Krishna temple.
Janis Joplin and Big Brother performed there along with the Hare Krishna founder Bhaktivedanta Swami , Allen Ginsberg , Moby Grape , and Grateful Dead , donating proceeds to the Krishna temple.
The pair lived together as a couple for a few months. They also played at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, as well as in Seattle, Washington, Vancouver, British Columbia, the Psychedelic Supermarket in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Golden Bear Club in Huntington Beach, California.
The debut album spawned four minor hits with the singles " Down on Me ", a traditional song arranged by Joplin, "Bye Bye Baby", "Call On Me" and "Coo Coo", on all of which Joplin sang lead vocals.
Two songs from the second of Big Brother's two sets at Monterey, which they played on Sunday, were filmed their first set, which was on Saturday, was not filmed, though it was audio-recorded.
Some sources, including a Joplin biography by Ellis Amburn, claim that she was dressed in thrift store hippie clothes or second-hand Victorian clothes during the band's Saturday set,  but still photographs do not appear to have survived.
Digitized color film of two songs in the Sunday set, "Combination of the Two" and a version of Big Mama Thornton 's " Ball and Chain ", appear in the DVD box set of D.
Pennebaker 's documentary Monterey Pop released by The Criterion Collection. She is seen wearing an expensive gold tunic dress with matching pants.
Elliot and the audience are seen in sunlight, but Sunday's Big Brother performance was filmed in the evening.
The prohibition of Pennebaker from filming on Saturday afternoon came from Big Brother's manager Julius Karpen.
Only "Ball and Chain" was included in the Monterey Pop film that was released to cinemas throughout the United States in and shown on television in the s.
Those who did not attend the Monterey Pop Festival saw the band's performance of "Combination of the Two" for the first time in when The Criterion Collection released the box set.
For the remainder of , even after Big Brother signed with Albert Grossman, they performed mainly in California. On February 16, ,  the group began its first East Coast tour in Philadelphia, and the following day gave their first performance in New York City at the Anderson Theater.
Live at Winterland '68 , recorded at the Winterland Ballroom on April 12 and 13, , features Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company at the height of their mutual career working through a selection of tracks from their albums.
A recording became available to the public for the first time in when Sony Music Entertainment released the compact disc. One month after the Winterland concert, Owsley Stanley recorded them at the Carousel Ballroom, released in as Live at the Carousel Ballroom On July 31, , Joplin made her first nationwide television appearance when the band performed on This Morning , an ABC daytime minute variety show hosted by Dick Cavett.
Shortly thereafter, network employees wiped the videotape, though the audio survives. In and , Joplin made three appearances on Cavett's prime-time program.
Video was preserved and excerpts have been included in most documentaries about Joplin. Sometime in , the band's billing was changed to "Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company,"  and the media coverage given to Joplin generated resentment within the band.
Janis Joplin can sing the chic off any listener. For her first major studio recording, Joplin played a major role in the arrangement and production of the songs that would comprise Big Brother and the Holding Company's second album, Cheap Thrills.
Producer John Simon tried recording the band in concert, to capture their energy in a live album, but several attempts showed the band was prone to mistakes.
Their imprecision was not helped by moving the sessions to a recording studio. Joplin sang take after take of the same song, with her performances consistently good, and she grew frustrated with the band's sloppiness.
Simon was replaced by Elliot Mazer who fixed the songs by overdubbing certain parts. Although Cheap Thrills sounded as if it consisted of concert recordings, like on "Combination of the Two" and "I Need a Man to Love", only "Ball and Chain" was actually recorded in front of a paying audience; the rest of the tracks were studio recordings.
Cheap Thrills produced very popular hits with " Piece of My Heart " and " Summertime ". Together with the premiere of the documentary film Monterey Pop at New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on December 26, ,  the album launched Joplin as a star.
The band made another East Coast tour during July—August , performing at the Columbia Records convention in Puerto Rico and the Newport Folk Festival.
After returning to San Francisco for two hometown shows at the Palace of Fine Arts Festival on August 31 and September 1, Joplin announced that she would be leaving Big Brother.
On September 14, , culminating a three-night engagement together at Fillmore West, fans thronged to a concert that Bill Graham publicized as the last official concert of Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company.
The opening acts on this night were Chicago then still called Chicago Transit Authority and Santana. Despite Graham's announcement that the Fillmore West gig was Big Brother's last concert with Joplin, the band—with Joplin still as lead vocalist—toured the U.
Reflecting Joplin's crossover appeal, two October performances at a roller rink in Alexandria, Virginia, were reviewed by John Segraves of the conservative Washington Evening Star at a time when the Washington metropolitan area's hard rock scene was in its infancy.
Shortly she will be merely Janis Joplin, a vocalist singing folk rock on her first album as a single.
Whatever she does and whatever she sings she'll do it well because her vocal talents are boundless. This is the way she came across in a huge, high-ceilinged roller skating rink without any acoustics but, thankfully a good enough sound system behind her.
In a proper room, I would imagine there would be no adjectives to describe her. Later that month October , Big Brother performed at the University of Massachusetts Amherst  and at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Aside from two reunions, Joplin's last performance with Big Brother was at a Chet Helms benefit in San Francisco on December 1, After splitting from Big Brother and the Holding Company, Joplin formed a new backup group, the Kozmic Blues Band, composed of session musicians like keyboardist Stephen Ryder and saxophonist Cornelius "Snooky" Flowers, as well as former Big Brother and the Holding Company guitarist Sam Andrew and future Full Tilt Boogie Band bassist Brad Campbell.
Gabriel Mekler, who produced Kozmic Blues , told publicist-turned-biographer Myra Friedman after Joplin's death that she had lived in his Los Angeles house during the June recording sessions at his insistence so he could keep her away from drugs and her drug-using friends.
Joplin's appearances with the Kozmic Blues Band in Europe were released in cinemas, in multiple documentaries. Janis , which was reviewed by the Washington Post on March 21, ,  shows Joplin arriving in Frankfurt by plane and waiting inside a bus next to the Frankfurt venue, while an American female fan who is visiting Germany expresses enthusiasm to the camera no security was used in Frankfurt, so by the end of the concert, the stage was so packed with people the band members could not see each other.
Janis also includes interviews with Joplin in Stockholm and from her visit to London , for her gig at Royal Albert Hall. The London interview was dubbed with a voiceover in the German language for broadcast on German television.
John Byrne Cooke, road manager for Joplin and the Kozmic Blues Band, wrote a book published in in which he discussed her knowledge of the risks of her ongoing use of narcotics, particularly when she was outside the United States.
On Kozmic Blues' tour of Europe, Janis was terrified at every border crossing and customs inspection, knowing that the works and the smack she had stashed on her person could send her directly to jail on a tough rap to beat in foreign courts.
But she was unwilling to go without, so she carried a supply everywhere, despite the risks. On the episode of The Dick Cavett Show that was telecast in the United States on the night of July 18, , Joplin and her band performed "Try Just a Little Bit Harder " as well as " To Love Somebody ".
As Dick Cavett interviewed Joplin, she admitted that she had a terrible time touring in Europe, claiming that audiences there are very uptight and don't " get down ".
Released in September , the Kozmic Blues album was certified gold later that year but did not match the success of Cheap Thrills. Some music critics, however, including Ralph J.
Gleason of the San Francisco Chronicle , were negative. Gleason wrote that the new band was a "drag" and Joplin should "scrap" her new band and "go right back to being a member of Big Brother Other reviewers, such as reporter Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post , devoted entire articles to celebrating the singer's magic.
When Joplin and her back-up band performed at Vets Memorial Auditorium in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday night, May 11, , Columbus Dispatch reviewer John Huddy wrote:.
Frequently suggestive with a series of limited but obvious moves, Miss Joplin wears hip-hugging silk bellbottoms and alternates between a wail and a teeth-rattling scream.
Like Elvis in his pelvis-moving days or Wayne Cochran with his towering hairdo, Janis is a curiosity as well as a musical attraction.
She cultivates a Madame of Rock image, lounging against an organ, exchanging profanities with bandsmen, cackling coarsely at private jokes, even taking a belt or two while onstage.
She also has something to say in her songs, about the raw and rudimentary dimensions of sex, love, and life. She gets her point across, splitting a few eardrums in the process.
Opening the Joplin concert were Teegarden and Van Winkle, an organ-drums duo Before her concert, Miss Joplin walked into the lobby and watched customers sic arrive.
She was not recognized. Columbia Records released " Kozmic Blues " as a single, which peaked at number 41 on the Billboard Hot , and a live rendition of "Raise Your Hand" was released in Germany and became a top ten hit there.
Containing other hits like "Try Just a Little Bit Harder ", " To Love Somebody ", and " Little Girl Blue ", I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!
Joplin informed her band that they would be performing at the concert as if it were just another gig. On Saturday afternoon, when she and the band were flown by helicopter with the pregnant Joan Baez and Baez's mother from a nearby motel to the festival site and Joplin saw the enormous crowd, she instantly became extremely nervous and giddy.
Upon landing and getting off the helicopter, Joplin was approached by reporters asking her questions. She referred them to her friend and sometime lover Peggy Caserta as she was too excited to speak.
Initially, Joplin was eager to get on the stage and perform but was repeatedly delayed as bands were contractually obliged to perform ahead of Joplin.
Faced with a ten-hour wait after arriving at the backstage area, Joplin spent some of that time shooting heroin and drinking alcohol   with Caserta in a tent.
Saturday,  and Caserta does not appear within camera range. When Joplin finally reached the stage at approximately a.
Sunday, she was " three sheets to the wind ", according to biographer Alice Echols. Joplin pulled through, however, and engaged frequently with the crowd, asking them if they had everything they needed and if they were staying stoned.
The audience cheered for an encore, to which Joplin replied and sang "Ball and Chain". Pete Townshend , who performed with the Who later in the same morning after Joplin finished, witnessed her performance and said the following in his memoir: "She had been amazing at Monterey, but tonight she wasn't at her best, due, probably, to the long delay, and probably, too, to the amount of booze and heroin she'd consumed while she waited.
But even Janis on an off-night was incredible. Janis remained at Woodstock for the remainder of the festival. Still photographs in color show Joplin backstage with Grace Slick the day after Joplin's performance, wherein Joplin appears to be very happy.
She was ultimately unhappy with her performance, however, and blamed Caserta. Her singing was not included by her own insistence in the documentary film or the soundtrack for Woodstock: Music from the Original Soundtrack and More , although the 25th anniversary director's cut of Woodstock includes her performance of " Work Me, Lord ".
The documentary film of the festival that was released to theaters in includes, on the left side of a split screen , 37 seconds of footage of Joplin and Caserta walking toward Joplin's dressing room tent.
In addition to Woodstock, Joplin also had problems at Madison Square Garden , in Biographer Myra Friedman said she had witnessed a duet Joplin sang with Tina Turner during the Rolling Stones concert at the Garden on Thanksgiving Day.
Friedman said Joplin was "so drunk, so stoned, so out of control, that she could have been an institutionalized psychotic rent by mania.
Joplin told rock journalist David Dalton that Garden audiences watched and listened to "every note [she sang] with 'Is she gonna make it?
At the time of the June interview with Dalton, she had already performed in the Bay Area for what turned out to be the last time. Sam Andrew, the lead guitarist who had left Big Brother with Joplin in December to form her back-up band, quit in late summer and returned to Big Brother.
At the end of the year, the Kozmic Blues Band broke up. Their final gig with Joplin was the one at Madison Square Garden with Winter and Butterfield.
In February , Joplin traveled to Brazil , where she stopped her drug and alcohol use. She was accompanied on vacation there by her friend Linda Gravenites, who had designed the singer's stage costumes from to In Brazil, Joplin was romanced by a fellow American tourist named David George Niehaus, who was traveling around the world.
A Joplin biography written by her sister Laura said, "David was an upper-middle-class Cincinnati kid who had studied communications at Notre Dame. He tried law school, but when he met Janis he was taking time off.
Niehaus and Joplin were photographed by the press at Rio Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. According to Joplin biographer Ellis Amburn, in Gravenites' snapshots they "look like a carefree, happy, healthy young couple having a tremendously good time.
Rolling Stone magazine interviewed Joplin during an international phone call, quoting her: "I'm going into the jungle with a big bear of a beatnik named David Niehaus.
I finally remembered I don't have to be on stage twelve months a year. I've decided to go and dig some other jungles for a couple of weeks.
When Joplin returned to the U. Her relationship with Niehaus soon ended because he witnessed her shooting drugs at her new home in Larkspur, California.
The relationship was also complicated by her ongoing romantic relationship with Peggy Caserta, who also was an intravenous addict, and Joplin's refusal to take some time off and travel the world with him.
Around this time, she formed her new band, known for a short time as Main Squeeze, then renamed the Full Tilt Boogie Band.
Joplin took a more active role in putting together the Full Tilt Boogie band than she did with her prior group.
She then began recording a new album in September with producer Paul A. By Saturday, October 3rd Joplin had already laid down a number of takes at Sunset Recording Studios in LA, including "Mercedes Benz".
On the following day she failed to appear and John Cooke, the road manager of Full Tilt Boogie Band, drove to the Landmark Motor Hotel where Joplin was staying.
There he found her dead on the floor of her room, the result of a seizure caused by a heroin overdose. Joplin was cremated and her ashes scattered from a plane into the Pacific Ocean.
Her unfinished recordings were assembled and the result was the posthumously released Janis Joplin - Pearl in It became the biggest selling album of her career.
