The undisputed queen of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll was discovered at the Monterrey International Pop Festival in 1967, her first album went gold in 1968. Two years later she was dead. Confusion and stereotype surround Janis. There is Janis the lesbian, the misfit, the rebel, the conformer, the junky, the drinker, the genius and the lonely woman. Janis constructed many of these herself as shells to cope and protect a vulnerable self. The wild clothes and living, even her 'cackling' laugh were but tools to divert the truth. The real Janis remained unseen by most, glimpsed by a few.
