Description - Pearl: the Obsessions and Passions of Janis Joplin by Ellis Amburn
Nobody sang the blues hotter, lived the 60s wilder, or rocked harder than Janis Joplin.Out of the Texas-Louisiana swamps she wailed the blues like no one, black or white, has ever dared. She was Janis Joplin - the first rock star of the 1960s counterculture, a fashion trendsetter in San Francisco's back-to-the-roots movement that overtook the world, a prisoner of an ultimately doomed search for happiness in sex and drugs, money and fame.Now, for the first time ever, bestselling author Ellis Amburn interviews scores of personalities both famous and unknown, travels to the places where Janis was born, lived, and died, and reveals facts about Janis's life and death that have languished in shadow. Here is the tragic, the magic, and, most of all, the real Janis Joplin - the greatest female singer in the history of rock and roll.
