DHAKA: Singing legend Janis Joplin was honoured with a star on Hollywood’s storied Walk of Fame more than four decades after her death from a drug overdose.
The raspy-voiced singing star was immortalised on the famous Hollywood walk at a ceremony attended by her brother Michael and sister Laura, while country music luminary Kris Kristofferson played her signature hit Me And Bobby McGee.
‘Janis Joplin is an iconic figure, and her songs will always be remembered by her fans around the world,’ said Ana Martinez of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which oversees the famous Tinseltown sidewalk.
The 1960s hard-partying rock singer would have been 70 years old this year, reports The Straits Times.
