On the death of rock icon Janis Joplin, in the Village Voice...

Item # 663935

October 08, 1970

THE VILLAGE VOICE, New York, Oct. 8, 1970 

* Janis Joplin dies of accidental drug overdose
* One of the best artists/performers of all time

The bottom of the ftpg. has a photo captioned: "Janis Joplin 1942-1970" with the article on page 12. The article begins: "Last Wednesday I taped a phone interview with Janis Joplin from California. I played it Sunday night on my radio show, only to wake up the next morning and find she had died that night..." with much more. Great to have this report in this newspaper.
As most might be aware "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. It introduced free-form, high-spirited, and passionate journalism into the public discourse a tradition it maintained throughout its 60+ year history.
Complete in 80 pages, tabloid-size, never bound nor trimmed, nice condition.
