Janis Joplin’s Birthday Today…

Janis Joplin

Janis Lyn Joplin was born on this day, January 19, 1943.

She, of course, became a member of the “27 Club” on October 4, 1970, just 16 days after Jimi Hendrix’s entrance into the same infamous ‘club’.

Janis influenced countless singers both male and female throughout her short career, and continues to do so today as she is cited as one of the most influential female singers of all time.
