On this day: Janis Joplin: Buried Alive in the Blues

John Byrne Cooke, Janis Joplin’s road manager entered room 105 of the Landmark Motor Hotel in Los Angeles with a sense of misgiving on October 4, 1970. Moving inside he soon faced the chilling sight of the Queen of Rock and Roll lying half naked between the bed and the bedside table, holding a few dollars in her hand. Her heroine syringe lie onthe table; Joplin had already been dead for hours. Similar to Jimi Hendrix, who died two weeks before Joplin, she lived only 27 years.
