Dubbed the Queen of Rock and Roll, Janis Joplin, born and raised in conservative Port Arthur, Texas, somehow found the BLUES in her troubled soul. She became an instant star at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and never looked back; until, three years later her use of SMACK - aka SNOW - aka WHITE DEATH - did her in. This book tells her story with unrose-colored glasses - well-written and researched - it's a must for all music lovers.
