Janis Joplin was seen as a pioneer for being the first woman of rock n’ roll, but many stories focus how she died and not how she lived. Many people remember her for her boldness. But never got to see the more sweet and sensitive side of Joplin

That’s why on May 3rd at 8 p.m. GPB presents American Masters Janis Joplin: Little Girl Blue. Directed by Amy Berg, this biography not only captures the legacy of Joplin’s music, but also explores her private life in a way not many biographies have done before. This work includes never-before-seen footage of Joplin’s performances, and new interviews with her sister Laura Joplin and former bandmates.

Catch American Masters May 3rd at 8 p.m. on GPB.
