Mark and Peter Albin founder of Big Brother & The Holding Company talk about San Francisco in the 60’s: Janis Joplin’s impact, and his friendship with Jett Garcia, PigPen and the Jefferson Airplane.  Peter remembers taking Jimi Hendrix to the store for beer, and watching BB King play a night of Gospel tunes the night Martin Luther King was murdered. Peter recalls the night at the Monterey Pop Festival that put the band on the map, and the argument backstage between Jimi Hendrix and The Who.
