Janis: Her Life and Music

ISBN: 9781476793108
New York, NY: Simon and Schuster, 2019. First Edition. Hardcover. “Through her influence and her own enduring work, Janis Joplin remains at the core of our music and culture. As we look back at pivotal moments in 1960s rock history, she is usually there: the Monterey Pop Festival; the vibrant Haight-Ashbury scene in San Francisco; the streets, clubs, and studios of gritty New York city; Woodstock. She's been feted at museum exhibitions and the subject of theater productions and films.” (Introduction, Pg. xii) Considered the Definitive Biography of Janis Joplin (1943-1970), (as stated on Joplin’s official website) George-Warren creates an intimate portrait of Joplin that closes the gap between artist and human being, that accurately displays her as a complex, multi-faceted, and intensely sensitive person with that iconic Rock N’ Roll spirit we remember her by. George-Warren guides us through Joplin’s life with details unpreceddented–including notes from her family, friends, and former band mates–from her childhood to high school days of a Texan outcast reading our very own Jack Keroac’s On The Road, to her late teenage years sitting in Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Lights, and of course including plenty of stories relating to her drug-ridden Rock N Roll days while building her career with the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Company. George-Warren is one of the most highly regarded chroniclers of American music history, having written a plethora of other award-winning books both before and after Janis: Her Life and Music, such as: The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: The First 25 Years (2009), Grateful Dead 365 (2008), A Man Called Destruction: The Life and Music of Alex Chilton, From Box Tops to Big Star to Backdoor Man (2014), etc. and has cemented herself as a distinguinshed expert worthy of producing and consulting films such as: Welcome to the Club: The Women of Rockabilly and Woodstock: Now and Then. If there is to be an accurate discussion of Rock N’ Roll, rest assured George-Warren is more than likely to be consulted.
