Janis Joplin, after blessed with an opportunity of a lifetime ruined herself. She was pure TRASH! I remember watching her on national TV interview when she denounced Port Arthur (her hometown) and said it was the worst place in the world. She hated it. Then she overdosed on drugs, which was well-known a drug addict for previous years. Her voice was pathetic and Janis Joplin solely rode stardom on her unique style. Port Arthur is proud of her. I am not and ashamed that one of our past that had the chance of a lifetime withered away so quickly due to her pitiful lifestyle. She cursed Port Arthur and after her death, the city couldn't wait to make an icon of greatness (including a "museum!" Shame on you, Port Arthur natives for allowing this trash to evolve into Port Arthur honorable!

Port Arthur was once a great city, but just like Janis Joplin has gone to hell in a hand-basket! There are somr truly honorable folks from Port Arthur, but Janis Joplin surely is NOT one of them!

Hmm, if you actually knew a little about the history of what happened to her at TJ, in Pt. Arthur you might be a little more compassionate. I attended TJ myself and had the wonderful opportunity to play a bit of music with an old band member of her's when I was a teenager. When someone is traumatized to the extent she was, it tends to leave a bad taste that usually includes the areas that things happen in... Blessings to you and yours!
