ON THIS DAY…. October 4th, 1970, Janis Joplin was found dead at the Landmark Hotel Hollywood after an accidental heroin overdose.
Janis Joplin was known as “The Queen of Psychedelic Soul” and as “Pearl” to her friends. Her music was raw, gritty, and powerful – her voice was incredibly unique. Here is one of her most popular songs, “Cry Baby.”
*a “cry baby” is someone (a child or an adult) who complains all the time. Crying… like a baby!
