Some famous shots of Janis Joplin with a bottle of Southern Comfort taken in 1968 on backstage at the legendary San Francisco’s music venue, Winterland Ballroom by concert promoter Bill Graham. 

“Janis was a great subject to photograph, because she was not afraid of the camera and came alive onstage – that was her world. She was very real and still a little girl when she died; a very famous little girl.” – Jim Marshall
