Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 1969. "I don't understand how I even got into this concert," says Russell. "I must have just gone in and said I was with the press and they must have believed me. I didn't have any credentials. I just wrote out a card saying that I was a photographer. I don't remember anything about the show. Once you put a camera in front of my face I'm 80 percent mute about anything else. If you look very closely you can just make out the highlight of an opera box through the spotlight."
