Joplin was the eldest of her siblings Michael and Laura, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School, where she began painting and listening to blues artists Bessie Smith, Leadbelly, Big Mama Thornton and Odetta with the other rebellious kids in her neighborhood. She graduated high school in 1960, and in 1962, she quit university in the middle of her studies. The university then ran the headline, "She Dares To Be Different" in the student newspaper.

Janis Joplin, on the cover of her posthumously released 1971 album 'Pearl. New documentary 'Janis: Little Girl Blue' delves into the life and times of the late, great singer. BFI London Film Festival/Image. This fall marks the 45th anniversary of Janis Joplin’s death from an overdose in a Hollywood hotel room. Since then, she’s been the subject of books, reissues, a boxed set, an off-Broadway show, and a biopic, possibly starring Amy Adams. She was just looking for love. She wanted to be adored and comforted and loved. A loving letter from Niehaus was awaiting the musician at the front desk of her hotel on the night she died. The question is, had she received that letter that night, maybe she wouldn’t have shot up, Berg says.

George-Warren beautifully tells a moving story of a woman whose life and music inspired a generation.

I really liked Janis. She was a very bright, sad person, but very special and I loved the way she sang. When I was with her she was kicking the heroin habit and she was clear for the couple of months that I knew her. She said that if things didn't get better for her she was going to get back on it. And I guess that's what happened. Janis Joplin composed her songs while she was fighting with Bobby Darin, compare the veins on her hands with Sandra Dee. In the song Turtle Blues one can hear Bobby Darin egging for a fight and asking Janis to step outside. a bottle that Bobby threw towards Janis but not close enough to hurt her.

Joplin didn't write too many of the cuts on our list of the Top 10 Janis Joplin Songs; she was a better interpreter than songwriter. But this hurricane of a tune from her second (and posthumously released) solo album is all Joplin - one of only a handful of songs she penned by herself. Move Over" opens 'Pearl' with a positively assured bluesy sway. From 'Cheap Thrills' (1968).

Janis Joplin was not considered by many during that time to be conventionally pretty. It was because of this that her self-esteem was effected for the entirety of her life. Growing up, she had been slightly overweight and had problems with acne that left her with an incredibly negative view of herself. As a child, Joplin was bullied for her looks and for being different. The bullying continued all the way up until her first year of college at the University of Texas in Austin. Bob Seidemann recalls, That’s the way she was. She wanted to take her clothes off real bad. The photo was published in 1972, a few years after her death. Joplin also had no problem taking her clothes off while performing in front of crowds of people. A concert promoter at Pittsburgh’s Civic Arena remembers her being later to the stage because she had been having sex in her dressing room.

But Janis Joplin didn’t merely possess a great instrument; she threw herself into every syllable, testifying from the very core of her being. She claimed the blues, soul, gospel, country and rock with unquestionable authority and verve, fearlessly inhabiting psychedelic guitar jams, back-porch roots and everything in between. Big Brother’s Piece of My Heart, on 1968’s Cheap Thrills LP, shot to the spot, the album sold a million copies in a month, and Joplin became a sensation – earning rapturous praise from Time and Vogue, appearing on The Dick Cavett Show and capturing the imagination of audiences that had never experienced such fiery intensity in a female rock singer. Her departure from Big Brother and emergence as a solo star were inevitable; she put together her own outfit, the Kozmic Blues Band, and in 1969 released I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!, which went gold.
