Janis Lyn Joplin was born on January 19, 1943, and unfortunately died on October 4, 1970. This amazing artist was nicknamed “Pearl”, and she was an American rock, soul and blues singer and songwriter, and one of the most successful and widely-known female rock stars of her era.
After releasing three albums, she died of a heroin overdose at the age of 27. A fourth album, Pearl, was released in January 1971, just over three months after her death and it reached number one on the Billboard charts.
From June 28 to July 4, 1970, the year of her death, Joplin and Full Tilt Boogie joined the all-star Festival Express train tour through Canada, performing alongside many other artists. They played concerts in Toronto, Winnipeg, and Calgary. Joplin jammed with the other performers on the train, and her performances on this tour are considered to be among her greatest.
Joplin had a profound influence on many singers. For example, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine spoke of Joplin’s impact, in an interview that appeared in a commercial against piracy. And like her, many other artists.
She was a major inspiration for everyone. Despite the lifestyle she was living and the way she died, we believe that she still is one of the biggest musicians of all-time! So let’s celebrate her life, by bringing her into our house design. How? With these lighting designs.
