"I was a boy when Janis Joplin died in that room 50 years ago this week. She was found dead on the floor next to the bed. Thomas Noguchi, L.A.'s coroner to the stars, described for the press the alcohol in her bloodstream, the hypodermic found by the bedside and the packet of white powder in the trash." - Nicholas Goldberg, LA Times
