Janis Joplin rocks on at New York's Madison Square Garden, one hand raised and the other clutching a microphone. In the background is a bandmate playing the guitar. This iconic photo, taken less than a year before Joplin's death, was shot by photographer Charles Tracy and appeared in the March 1, 1970, Vogue.
