Singer-songwriter Janis Lyn Joplin dies of a heroin overdose at the age of 27 in Landmark Motor Hotel Room #105, 7047 Franklin Avenue, Hollywood, California, United States.

Joplin had been given heroin that was much more potent than normal, as several of her dealer's other customers also overdosed that week.
