“The story of the woman who skyrocketed to fame as the first female rock superstar and left it at a tragically young age—from someone who had a front-row seat.”—New York Post 

“The best book about Janis [Joplin]."—Sam Andrews, Big Brother and the Holding Company

“[Cooke] is a gifted writer, letting Joplin’s vivaciousness and intensity shine throughout the work.”—Library Journal

"Janis Joplin was absolutely a barnstormer and a complete groundbreaker. She wasn't just a great woman in rock—at the time she was the woman in rock. Janis really created this whole world of possibility for women in music: Without Janis Joplin, there would be no Melissa Etheridge. Without Janis, there would be no Chrissie Hynde, no Gwen Stefani. There would be no one." —Rosanne Cash

“[Janis Joplin] perfectly expressed the feelings and yearnings of the girls of the electric generation—to be all woman, yet equal with men; to be free, yet a slave to real love; to [reject] every outdated convention, and yet get back to the basics of life.” —Lillian Roxon, rock critic

“Joplin belonged to that select group of pop figures who mattered as much for themselves as for their music. Among American rock performers, she was second only to Bob Dylan in importance as a creator-recorder-embodiment of her generation’s mythology.” —Ellen Wills, rock journalist -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

HASH(0x9fa178ac) von 5 Sternen 45 years later, a new fan 27. November 2014
Von jd103 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I requested this book on a whim when I saw that my library had ordered it. I vaguely remember listening to an eight-track of one of her albums (Kozmic Blues, I think) quite a few times when I was a kid, but I never became a big fan as an adult. Despite the importance of music to me, I didn't have anything by her when I decided to read this.

This is an excellent book which has turned me into a fan 45 years later. I felt like I got a sense of who she was as a person and liked her intelligence and vulnerability despite a lot of behavior I wouldn't have liked in person. Reading this actually made me feel sad about the long ago death of someone I didn't know. I've always been a Kris Kristofferson fan and it was moving to read how affected he was by her death and by hearing her version of his song Me and Bobby McGee.

It seemed that she was getting her life together shortly before she died--learning more about singing and thinking of her future, working with her best band and producer, quitting heroin, being more in control. Unfortunately a bad influence reappeared in her life and she began occasionally using heroin again, and unluckily died as a result of using heroin which was too strong and which also killed several other users.

I've spent a couple hours listening to samples and comparing songs on various albums and I'll be buying some of those, and I'll be reading at least one more book about her from the library. I'm looking forward to the movie which is going to be made about her.

Many books written about Joplin were by people who either didn't know her or had only occasional contact with her. This one is different, written by her road manager and friend who was actually there every step of the way. Better still, this book is written with a sincerity and without sensationalism. I found it to be a refreshingly good read.

Every other biography I've read about Janis Joplin has focused too much on her drug use and sex life. John Cooke focuses on her music. Loved reading about the development of her career against the backdrop of current events--especially since I lived through the days of peace and love.

HASH(0x9f7033a8) von 5 Sternen A moving tribute by a good friend who knew her will! 22. November 2014
Von Diane M. Moyle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was only twelve when Janis Joplin was found dead from an overdose of heroin. I liked her music then but I grew to love it as I got older. She was the type of strong woman that you either loved or hated, she was way ahead of her time. Her life style was very bohemian and she was considered a hippie. My parents, like most at the time, were not fans because of what she stood for which made me love her all the more.

The author of this book, John Byrne Cooke was her road manager for most of her short career. He has written a moving tribute to this great singer who was often times misunderstood. He was a personal friend and confidante. He heard her when she first performed at the Monterey Pop Festival. A musician himself, he recognized her for the tremendous vocalist that she was. Through mutual acquaintances and twists of fate, he became her manager. Their lives were intertwined until her premature death at 27.

I love this book and recommend it. You get a glimpse into the real life of Janis Joplin. Although it doesn’t make excuses for either, it explains the reasons for her drinking and drug use. It humanizes her and makes you realize that she was as insecure and fallible as anyone. After I turned the last page, I was struck again by the senselessness of her passing and couldn’t help wondering how rock and roll would have evolved if this great songster had lived.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent book to read. I never knew anything about Janis Joplin but the song Piece of My Heart. The writer shows us a sensitive intelligent rock star who rose too quickly and burned out too soon. Battling heroin and alcohol, trying to find a semi-normal life on the road by trying to marry her fiance Seth Morgan only to lose him, her life tragically in her house dead on her bedroom floor from an overdose alone and depressed- what she feared the most in her life. She is given a human like quality, down to earth Texan girl who enjoyed singing the blues, forming a new band after Big Brother, travelling all over the world , sharing the spotlight with her new band Full Tilt Boogie and her friendships with Kris Krostofferson in singing Bobby McGee with him, meeting Bob Dylan, fighting with Jim Morrison at a party. She liked to be called Pearl by her friends and prove to her small hometown at her high school reunion that she broke free of their narrow minded beliefs to become a Sixties icon and the first female rockstar to break the male dominated music business. The story is tastefully done as a friend and road manager looking at photographs of a close departed friend and sharing his memories with his readers.
