Janis Lyn Joplin (Port Arthur, January 19, 1943 – Los Angeles / California, October 4, 1970), best known only as Janis Joplin , was an American singer and songwriter. Considered the “Queen of Rock and Roll”, “The Greatest Rock singer of the 60s” or “The greatest blues and soul singer of her generation,” she achieved prominence in the late 1960s as the lead singer of the group Big Brother and the Holding Company and subsequently as a solo artist, along with his supporting bands, Kozmic Blues and Full Tilt Boogie.
Known for her scratchy and rough voice, she began by attracting attention at shows at the North Beach Coffee Gallery in San Francisco in 1963.
In 1966 she became the lead singer of Big Brother And The Holding Company, with whom she achieved fame. His performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967 boosted his career decisively. The unique version of “Ball and Chain” captured on video was one of the unforgettable moments of the singer’s career. Two albums resulted from the collaboration with Big Brother: Big Brother And The Holding Company (1967) and Cheap Thrills (1968). They date from this period the classics “Piece Of My Heart” and “Ball And Chain”.
