Keep an eye on PBS for a new documentary about Janis Joplin. Janis: Little Girl Blue airs starting May 3 on most PBS channels. It’s part of the American Masters series.
Singer-songwriter Janis Joplin was only 27 years old when she died in 1970. She was perhaps the premier blues-influenced rock singer of the late Sixties, and certainly one of the biggest rock stars of her time.
