“SEX, DOPE & CHEAP THRILLS is certainly the greatest and closest representation of what Big Brother and the Holding Company was as a band and I would add to that argument that Big Brother/Janis as a band, and as a sound, was the embodiment of the San Francisco, psychedelic, counterculture of the 1960s.” - Dave Getz

We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of the legendary tattoo artist, Lyle Tuttle. Tuttle left his lasting mark on Janis + many other artists like The Allman Brothers and Joan Baez.
