Janis Joplin: Little Girl Blue
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time. She’s also a tragic and misunderstood performer who blazed new creative trails before she died in 1971 at age 27. Virtually every female rocker since claims Joplin as an influence. In a new documentary, filmmaker Amy Berg explores Joplin’s singular, complicated, but often beleaguered life. Berg joins us Monday to offer new understanding of a complex woman whose meteoric rise and sudden demise changed music forever.
