One of the most iconic woman in rock today has to be Janis Joplin. Even after her tragic death at twenty-seven she still manages to sell albums and influence future artists. Many in the 1960’s flocked to listen to her sing on stage, even at Woodstock, as she sang her way into their hearts. Unfortunately, she passed away too soon leaving behind many to wonder what could have been. Yet, she has managed to make her mark with her hit albums, like Pearl, and songs like “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Piece of My Heart” are still loved today by a new generation. Regardless of what you may think of her, there is no denying Janis Joplin is a legend in her own right.
