Happy Birthday, Janis!

By Katie Shaw

Although I’m a bit early in wishing Janis Joplin a Happy Birthday, her legacy as “The Queen of Rock,” is something to always be celebrated. If she were still here today, Janis would be turning 70 years old on January 19th.


I’ve been a Janis Joplin fan for some time now, but I’ve been totally obsessing over her music as of late. Her passion just radiates off of her when she’s performing, and I can’t help but share in her happiness. I only wish that I could’ve seen her live. Here a few of my favorite Janis moments:

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do, dear friends!
