Janis Joplin 1943年1月19日生于美国得克萨斯州的Port Arthur，小时候广泛接触布鲁斯、福音歌和乡村音乐，成名于一九六六年，于一九六八年推出专辑Cheap Thrills，则成功登上流行榜首位。她是六十年代的精神圣女，她是六十年代迷幻主义的追随者，她是六十年代女歌者的一道风景，她只能是Janis Joplin，六十年代一束匆匆划过天际的一条彩虹。听Janis Joplin唱歌，你永远也不会感到沉闷，你可以在每一个小小的细节里都听到她热情洋溢而且显得连自己也难以控制的充沛活力。她总是在每次演出都尽全力演唱，有人劝过她如果这么唱下去的话，会大大缩减她的演唱生涯，可是她并不在乎。她宁愿光辉一刹，也不愿平庸一生。Janis Joplin的私生活也不幸地彻底符合这种心态及其迷幻女杰的身分：她完全不顾世俗常规，酗酒、吸毒，不顾一切体制下的既定规条。这种生活方式注定了她如流星般一闪即逝的一生。一九七○年十月，在举世称誉中，Janis Joplin在荷里活一酒店房间内因吸食过量海洛因致死。翌年，遗作《Pearl》推出面世，成为专辑榜冠军，也是这位一代迷幻女杰最后遗作。好的音乐分为两种，一种是反应当代的环境，唱出当时的事物，另一种是唱到听者的心坎里，让听者能够感同身受。这一方面Janis Joplin是确确实实地做到了，聆听她的歌声，实在是能够感染到Janis Joplin对于音乐的付出。那种唱法实在是很难再找出另一位，能够与她相互抗衡的。听她的歌唱你会感觉到两个字---热爱---对音乐的热爱，对摇滚的热爱，这种热爱将一直感动着我们。
The undisputed queen sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, Janis Joplin broke into the boys club and out of the stifling good-girl feminity of post-war America. With her incredible wall-of-sound vocals, Janis Joplin was the voice of a generation. There is Janis the lesbian, the misfit, the rebel, the conformer, the junky, the drinker, the genius and the lonely woman. This moving documentary shows that she constructed many of these images herself as coats of armour to help her cope and protect a vulnerable self. The wild clothes and living, even her 'cackling' laugh were but tools to divert the truth. The real Janis remained unseen by most, glimpsed by only a few. Video footage recorded by John Cooke, road manager of the band Big Brother And The Holding Company, gives a rare glimpse of Janis away from the stage and the media.
Janis Joplin was one of the most influential musical artists of the 20th century, and an important figure of the 1960s rock 'n' roll era. Emerging from the conservative and racially divided world of the 1950s, Joplin arrived on the counter-culture scene of the 1960s as a rebellious soul with an unconventional attitude towards sex, drugs, and music.
Joplin achieved her initial fame as the lead singer of Big Brother and the Holding Company. Borrowing from African-American blues music, Joplin performed with an unbridled passion that had never been seen from a white, female artist. She defied society's stringent expectations of women's dress and behavior, and her wild-child style redefined the image of the female artist.
Within a year of her initial success, Joplin moved on to form the Kozmic Blues Band, taking on a more bluesy, funky sound. Joplin and her new band made history for their performance at the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair in upstate New York—a festival that is now considered to be one of the most pivotal moments in contemporary music history.
Two years later, Joplin moved on again, this time forming the Full-Tilt Boogie band. It was during this time that Joplin produced her last record, Pearl. The album included the track "Mercedes Benz," a social commentary on materialism that would become a popular single. It would also be the last song that Joplin ever recorded. Shortly before the album was released, on October 4, 1970, Joplin died of a heroin overdose at the Landmark Motor Hotel in Los Angeles, California. She was only 27 years old at the time of her death.
Pearl hit record stores in February of 1971. The posthumous work became the best-selling album of Joplin's career, and featured her biggest hit single, "Me and Bobby McGee." But the album would hardly be the end of Joplin's musical legacy. Her innovative style continues to influence thousands of musicians as well as inspire films, plays and songs about her life.
