Big Brother ad the Holding Company at Club Paard
Friday, October 14, 2016
The Hague, South Holland, The Netherlands 2512 GA
Big Brother and the Holding Company is best known as the band that Janis Joplin was the frontwoman for. But this American rock band is much more than that; experts call them pioneers of the psychedelic blues late 60s, a time when psychedelic bands like the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Jefferson Airplane flourished.
The name Big Brother & The Holding Company doesn't always ring a bell, but the classics "Down On Me" and "Piece Of My Heart" that they made with Janis Joplin live on as staples of rock radio. The legendary album "Cheap Thrills" full of distorted, warm guitars, was regarded by the famous music magazine Rolling Stone as one of the 500 best albums of all time. Powerful blues rock of the highest order!
