“Chet Helms, old friend, now is Mr. Big in S.F. Owns 3 big working rock & roll bands… and [he] assured me fame and fortune.” -Janis Joplin, writing to her parents in 1966

Today we remember Chet Helms, a founder of the psychedelic scene of 1960s San Francisco. Chet, who was known as the “Big Brother of the Summer of Love” in 1967, founded Big Brother & The Holding Company, and hired Janis to sing for the group. -

“[The] cameras switch from a tight view of Joplin’s face to her shoes. He lingers there for about five seconds, focusing on Janis stomping in time to the pronounced acid-blues rhythm the band is generating. It’s only then that you realize—if you have any blood circulating inside your own body—that you’ve been stomping your own feet as well.” -Best Classic Bands

On this day in history, Janis gave a legendary performance at the Monterey International Pop Festival in 1967. Relive the iconic performance with “Ball & Chain!”
