Janis Joplin (Born January 19, 1943 – Died October 4, 1970) began her musical career singing Blues and Folk music in a choir and with so-called friends.
While briefly attending the University of Austin, she obviously displayed a memorable, to say the least, presence. The campus newspaper, the Texan wrote a story on her just a short month after she had arrived. Here’s part of what was written on July 27, 1962:
“She Dares to Be Different.” The Campus Life editor wrote the piece, and this was the lead: “She goes barefooted when she feels like it, wears Levi’s to class because they’re more comfortable, and carries her Autoharp with her everywhere she goes so that in case she gets the urge to break into song it will be handy. Her name is Janis Joplin.” (source: Washington Post)
