Janis Lyn Joplin was a U.S. singer, who rose to prominence in the 1960s and became an iconic figure of the time due to the sort of freewheeling lifestyle that she led. She studied at Thomas Jefferson High School and showed interest in painting and before long Joplin became a keen singer of blues as well as folk songs. Joplin was a bit of a rebel right from her teens and did not complete her college education at University of Texas at Austin in order to become a singer. It was during her time at the University of Texas at Austin that she recorded her first song, titled ‘What Good Can Drinkin’ Do’ in 1962 and over the next few years, she recorded many more blues tracks but at the same time she became a habitual drug user. However, it was her rather wild personality that was in sync with the prevalent cultural revolution of sorts of the ‘swinging ’60s’ and naturally Jopling became a rage among the youth. Joplin’ albums with the band ‘Big Brother’ and ‘The Holding Company’ also made her a hugely popular singer and an iconic figure of her time. Here are some of her most well-known quotes and sayings by Janis Joplin whose uninhibited singing style made her popular among the masses.
