Originally published on January 19, 2018
Janis Joplin died of a drug overdose at the height of her success in 1970, when she was just 27 years old. Today would have been Joplin's 75th birthday. We revisit Joplin's life and music with John Till, a Canadian guitarist who founded the Full Tilt Boogie Band that played with Joplin in her last few years. Till played with Joplin on the Festival Express Train Tour, on stage at Woodstock and at her final concert.
