Janis Joplin 1968 Historically Significant Handwritten Letter to Linda Gravenites

Rock and blues legend Janis Joplin has handwritten and signed this historic two page letter confiding to her close friend Linda Gravenites some of her most innermost feelings about her band and living in New York City. The letter which is written on 6 X 9 stationery using fine black felt tip pen is dated “March 6.” Joplin writes “Lots &lots of changes, few of them good. Lots of trouble in the band, most of them revolving around the fact that I think I’m hot s***t (as I’m told behind the band’s back by everyone… & the band’s sloppy…the live recording is off now after only one attempt because we were so terrible. (But I was okay!) God, I’m so fu**ing confused! I think New York has gotten to us…” Joplin signs ending her last paragraph “I love you. Jan.” Joplin was well on her way in achieving worldwide fame at the time of this writing but her abuse of alcohol, drugs and a hard life on the road ended in her death by overdose in January, 1970 at the age of 27. Comes with a certificate that unconditionally guarantees the authenticity of this item.
