Janis Joplin left $2,500 in her will for her friends to "have a ball after I’m gone".

The music world was shocked to hear that Janis Joplin died of an accidental drug overdose in a Los Angeles hotel room on Oct. 4, 1970, at the age of 27. In her will, the woman whose life was often a nonstop party allotted $2,500 to fund one last bash for her friends -- "A final gesture of appreciation and farewell." On Oct. 26, 200 friends and members of San Francisco's music community attended Joplin's wake, a celebration of the life of one of rock's wildest stars.
