Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin had a lot in common during the late 60’s until their deaths in 1970. The question that persists today is; did they or didn’t they perform together. Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin were described as friends. They often played the same venues and would hang out together backstage.
They became stars in an era when sex, drugs and alcohol were a common thread or many performers’ lives and performances.
Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin are both examples of artists who perhaps gave too much to their music. They were addicted to their performances and the applause they received from adoring fans. Out of the spotlight, they turned to drugs to keep the high. Janus said it better herself: “Onstage, I make love to 25,000 people – then I go home alone.”
No recordings or evidence has ever been found of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin ever performing together. Because they often hung out backstage together, it’s reasonable to assume that they may have jammed together while waiting to perform. If they did, we will never know.
What we do know is that Albert King said during a recorded session with Stevie Ray Vaughn. If you watch the video (edited to just include his words about recording with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin) you can hear for yourself.
It’s time to put these two performers on stage and see and hear what it would have been like!
