Electrifying, highly acclaimed, and intensely personal, this new and updated version of Myra Friedman's classic biography of Janis Joplin teems with dramatic insights into Joplin's genius and into the chaotic times that catapulted her to fame as the legendary queen of rock. It is a stunning panorama of the turbulent decade when Joplin's was the rallying voice of a generation that lost itself in her music and found itself in her words.From her small hometown of Port Arthur, Texas, to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, from the intimate coffeehouses to the supercharged concert halls, from the glitter of worldwide fame to her tragic end in a Hollywood hotel, here is all the fire and anguish of an immortal, immensely talented, and troubled performer who devoured everything the rock scene had to offer in a fatal attempt to make peace with herself and her era. Yet, in an eloquent introduction recently written by the author, Joplin emerges from her "ugly duckling" childhood as a woman truly ahead of her time, an outrageous rebel, a defiant outcast and artist of incomparable authenticity who, almost in spite of herself, became to so many a symbol of triumph over adversity.This edition also contains an afterword detailing the whereabouts of a large and colorful cast of characters who were part of Joplin's life, as well as "We Remember Janis," a new chapter of poignant and affectionate anecdotes told by friends.

This is a highly personalised biography of the wild and wonderful Janis Joplin. If you're reading for musical appreciation then I'd recommend another book, because Friedman doesn't really try to chart Joplin's musical development. It's primarily her experiences as a friend and colleague (Friedman worked for Joplin's manager, the formidable Albert Grossman). It does capture a lot about Joplin's fragile psyche, which she masked with whiskey, drugs and sexual bravado (the side of her psyche she called Pearl). The progress from early blues/folk days to Big Brother & the Holding Company through to her Full-Tilt Boogie Band is not really captured in great detail, but Janis's mental and physical deterioration certainly is. It's all a bit too negative at times - surely Janis enjoyed some of her success - but this is Friedman's very personal journey with a woman who was a force of nature.

I loved Janis Joplin's music but could not find that sweer spot that would pull me into this book. I gave it three stars for subject matter but would not read or reccommend it.

Some reviewers have criticized the author for "putting Janis down", and presenting her in an unflattering light. I didn't feel that way.
I came away with the feeling that she truly revered Janis both as an artist and a person. To include the "warts" in a portrait isn't denigrating; it's just describing what you see. I thought this was the best bio of Janis I've read so far.
Jeronashe
A terrific first-hand account from Janis's agent. I left off one star because if you are doing research, and you need a definitive source for comments or events, just know that Friedman does not always make them clear. Having said that, this book is a "good read," especially for fans.

Can't put my finger on it but something was missing in this re-release of the original written in the early 70s.

I thought this was a little difficult to read. Too much of the author's own thoughts and long drawn out synopsis.
Love Me
Way too long and tedious.
Good book, but I wish it had gotten deeper into her life and her song writing.
