Janis Joplin (January 19, 1943 - October 4, 1970) was a homely, loud American blues singer and music sensation noted for her overall lack of attractiveness and curious body odor. Originally from Frogballs, Texas, she made a name for herself in the wild atmosphere of 1960's San Francisco, a hotbed of hot beds, interesting drugs, and bad musicians who made millions of dollars from squealing guitars.
As the lead singer of The Doors, Big Brother and the Stock Brokers, and the Fully Passed Out and Drunk Boogie Band, Janis achieved fame for her gravel-voiced rendition of classic blues torch songs, such as "Ain't Gots No Man to Love," "Gotta Mean Man Who Don't Love Me No Mo," and "Sho Nuff Ain't Gettin No Gots Be None," among others. Her breakout hit, "Me An Bobby McGee and a Dog Named Boo," sold millions of copies for its earthy portrayal of a young hippie couple that couldn't stay together because they were too stupid. She had a rockstar voice, with the essence and timbre of some girl with a frog stuck in her throat.
edit Early life
Janis was born in Frogballs, Texas, on January 19, 1943. Her father was an oil rigger, and her mama had sex with him. She was actually black, but was too light to be identified as a negro.
Joplin was eventually found dead in a hotel room in Joplin, Missouri. Early reports said she had overdosed on misery and suffered a broken heart onna counta being done wrong by a cruel, cheatin man. However, a later toxicology report clarified that she had simply died of being terminally unattractive.
