Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company

1966, Lagunitas, CA – Big Brother and the Holding Company sit for a portrait, later used as the source for the “Matrix” concert poster by Victor Moscoso.

“Janis was rehearsing with Big Brother & The Holding Company in a large wooden house at the end of a dirt road in Lagunitas, California, very close to where we lived in Forest Knolls. As I walked into the house, I was totally stunned by a voice belting out from another room. The power of her voice and the stomping of her foot shook the whole house. That was the day I shot the flag images and later in Woodacre we did a big shoot by the barns and the tractor.”
