about-
as a road manager and filmmaker, John Byrne Cooke helped run the Janis Joplin show. Now he reveals the never-before-told story of his years with the young woman from Port Arthur who would become the first female rock-and-roll superstar. In 1967, as the new sound of rock and roll was taking over popular music, John Byrne Cooke was at the center of it all. As a member of D. A. Pennebaker’s film crew, he witnessed the astonishing breakout performances of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival that June. Less than six months later, he became road manager for Janis and her band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. This intimate memoir spans the years he spent with Janis, from Monterey to Europe, Woodstock and Festival Express. INCLUDES PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHS.
