Kozmic Pearl

Janis Joplin would have been 70 years old this weekend, but instead her October 1970 death at just age 27 left a legacy as one of rock's first female superstars and a lot of unanswered questions. One of the biggest is what she would have done next, but Joplin had just completed the classic album Pearl and would have had the music world at her feet whatever she chose. She might have become a formidable blues-rock figure like Bonnie Raitt, headed to Nashville even before she would have fit right into the world of country music, or even made peace with her troubled Texas past and come home to Threadgill's. Whatever the outcome, it would have been memorable, and Saturday, Houston's top Joplin tribute outfit Kozmic Pearl — fronted by Myrna Sanders, a fierce vocalist in her own right — remembers Janis right.
