Big Brother and the Holding Company is an American rock band that was formed in San Francisco in 1965 as part of the psychedelic music scene. The group increased in popularity with the addition in June 1966 of lead singer Janis Joplin. She was recruited by the band's manager at the time. The band's historic performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967 attracted national and international attention. In 1968 they breakthrough with the hit, "Piece of My Heart". Near the end of 1968, Janis left the band with Sam Andrew and formed a new backing group, the Kozmic Blues Band. By early 1969, Joplin was addicted to heroin. Big Brother reformed in 1969 around the same line-up (except Joplin) until 1972. Joplin died in 1970 from an overdose of heroin combined with the effects of alcohol. Joplin was a pioneer in the male dominated rock music scene of the late 1960s.
