Janis Joplin: Little Girl Blue - How Janis Made the Hell’s Angels Get Her Groceries

She didn’t even have to ask them.

In this outtake from American Masters – Janis Joplin: Little Girl Blue, David Niehaus — Janis’ one-time lover — recalls Janis’ encounter with a group of armed Hell’s Angels. They had come to her house in the middle of the night, raiding her kitchen and making a commotion. When Niehaus failed to make them leave, Janis came out and told each one of them off, making them eventually leave and return with ten bags of fresh groceries to restock her refrigerator.
