Janis Joplin was born January 19, 1943 in Port Arthur, Texas (USA).
As a child she sang in the choir of his city, but in adolescence
it is really love for singing. She sings with several groups of
his school and his university and abandoned his studies. In 1963
she left Texas to live with San Francisco. She leads a dissolute
life filled with alcohol, drugs and sex, but affirmed by his different
style and rebellious. In 1966, she became the singer of the band
Big Brother And The Holding Company. The band recorded an eponymous
album which will experience a low success. However, the group
returned the following year with his second album "Cheap
Thrills" Janis Joplin which delivers incredible performance
with his gravelly voice, powerful but controlled.
