This is a poster of the front page of The World Daily News-Special Edition. The date was October 4, 1970. It states: Pearl's Lost, Singer Janis Joplin was found dead of a heroin overdose in her room at the Landmark Hotel in Hollywood this morning. Although Janis claimed to be happy with her new Full Tilt Boogie Band and their just completed album "Pearl", she suffered from alcohol & drug problems. Earlier this year Janis referred to Jimi Hendrix's death by stating. " I can't go out this year because he was a bigger star." Great as a gift or perfect for the home or office.
