Janis Joplin : A Trailblazer For Females In Music

It’s needless to say that the rock world suffered a huge loss when Janis Joplin died tragically at age 27 in 1970. Janis’s contributions to music can never be duplicated, and will never be forgotten. Joplin, also known by “The Queen of Psychedelic Soul, had incredible, electric stage presence and her skills went beyond stunning bluesy vocals and soulful songwriting – she was also a multi-instrumentalist.

Joplin’s notable songs include her only number one hit, “Me and Bobby McGee” and popular singles “Down on Me,” “Summertime,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Ball ‘n’ Chain,” “Maybe,” “To Love Somebody,” “Kozmic Blues,” “Work Me, Lord,” “Cry Baby,” and “Mercedes Benz.”
