On the Road with Janis Joplin
Available in Stock
John Byrne Cooke was already a musician and a film-maker when he became road manager for Janis Joplin's band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, in 1967. He remained with her and the later groups, Kozmic Blues Band and Full Tilt Boogie, until her death in 1970. Here he describes life and work with Joplin during the singer's brilliant and all-too-short career, from her triumph at the Monterey Pop Festival to the Landmark Hotel in LA, where she died.
