Janis Lyn Joplin (/ˈdʒɑːplɪn/; January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970) was an American rock singer in the 1960s whose voice propelled her to the pinnacle of stardom in her 20s. She sang in the band, Big Brother & The Holding Company. In October 1968 their second album, Cheap Thrills, reached #1 on the Billboard charts and raced ahead of other albums, becoming the most successful album of 1968. In 1969 she appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, a popular American TV show. That year she quit her band to sing in the Kozmic Blues Band, which she started. She also made her first of three appearances on the American TV show, The Dick Cavett Show. And, she sneaked on to the stage during a Rolling Stones concert in New York City. In 1970 she left singing in the Kozmic Blues Band to start the Full-Tilt Boogie Band, which performed to large audiences such as at the Sports Arena in San Diego. That year - after she attended her ten-year high school reunion in Port Arthur, Texas - she went to Los Angeles to work on another album. The day she was to record the song, "Buried Alive in the Blues," she was found dead in her hotel room, apparently of a drug overdose, on October 4, 1970. She was 27. In 2005 the Grammies gave her a "Lifetime Achievement Award" and in 2014 the U.S. Postal Service put her on a postage stamp for being one of the greatest rock singers of all time.
