Janis with maracas, March 1968 at the Fillmore East, by Ken Regan
Grace Slick & Janis Joplin, San Francisco 1967, by Jim Marshall.
“This shot of Grace Slick and Janis was taken in 1967 for Teen Set magazine for an article on the two Queen Bees of San Francisco Rock. That morning I went over to Grace’s house and then had to pick up Janis. Janis wasn’t in the mood to do any pictures that day, but I begged her and she came along. Everyone always thought there was a huge rivalry between Janis and Grace, but they were dear friends. This is the only time they were photographed together, and by the end of the session, we were all getting pretty silly and clowning around.” ~ Jim Marshall in Not Fade Away
