Tragic singer Janis Joplin is to be honoured posthumously with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kris Kristofferson and music mogul Clive Davis will join the Me & Bobby McGee singer's siblings, Michael and Laura, for the plaque unveiling ceremony on 4 November (13). Country star and actor Kristofferson, who was a close friend to the blues singer, will perform a special acoustic version of Me and Bobby McGee, which Joplin recorded in 1970 just before her death. Her star will be the 2,510th on the Walk of Fame.
