The 27 Club Season 3 - Janis Joplin Episode 1: Getting the Dead Drunk, Passing Jimi by, and Hanging with Austin Outlaws

38 minutes

When Janis Joplin died in 1970 at the age of 27, she was at the height of her musical powers and her rock ‘n roll fame. That summer she headlined a cross-country tour of Canada, during which she taught her old compatriots in the Grateful Dead some new tricks. They were tricks she had learned herself over the years: at dead-end gigs in Chicago, in the intimidating halls of Jefferson High, and at the far-out rock shows of Austin’s most-wanted. These stories and more on the Season 3 premiere of the 27 Club.
