The Obsessions and Passions of Janis Joplin

Out of the Texas-Louisiana swamps she wailed the blues like no one, black or white, has ever dared. She was Janis Joplin — the first rock star of the 1960s counterculture, a fashion trendsetter in San Francisco's back-to-the-roots movement that overtook the world, a prisoner of an ultimately doomed search for happiness in sex and drugs, money and fame.

Written by an expert celebrity biographer, here is the definitive portrait of legendary rock/blues singer Janis Joplin — featuring never-before-published details about her tumultuous life and tragic death. 16 pages of photos.
