February 1970 Circus Magazine Cover Story, One of Most Uncanny We Had Ever Produced

Circus Magazine 1970 edition

Can you imagine anyone today in media, asking the question posed on the February 1970 Circus Magazine cover image?

One of the most uncanny cover stories we had produced asked a question which may sound strange today, but was very relevant then. It was a time of youth rebellion, and a time when 30 seemed old.

Tragically four of our cover subjects didn't make it through the 1970s, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Elvis Presley. Stay tuned. More about this issue, the mistakes, inconsistencies, in My Continuing Story of my History with Circus Magazine.

Janis Joplin is Dead of an Overdose

Nicknamed "Pearl," Janis Joplin died of an overdose at age 27, on October 4, 1970. Her fourth album, Pearl was released four months after her death. We remember Janis Joplin as one of America's most loved rock stars.

This edition of Circus Magazine, October 1970, went to press in early September of that year.
