Randy Turner

Randy Turner (November 25, 1949 Gladewater-August 18, 2005) was an American singer and musician.

He is best known for being the lead vocalist of the blues-rock band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, which rose to fame in the late 1960s. Turner joined the band in 1987, after the departure of previous lead singer, Janis Joplin. Prior to his time with Big Brother and the Holding Company, Turner performed with several other bands, including The Randy Turner Band and The Texas Instruments. Throughout his career, he was noted for his raw and powerful vocal style, which drew comparisons to Joplin's iconic sound. In addition to his work in music, Turner was also an accomplished painter and graphic artist. He passed away in 2005 at the age of 55, leaving behind a legacy as one of the most notable blues-rock singers of his era.

Turner was born and raised in Gladewater, Texas, and began his music career in the late 1960s while attending college in Austin. He quickly gained a reputation as a dynamic performer, known for his high-energy live shows and soulful singing. However, it wasn't until his time with Big Brother and the Holding Company that he achieved mainstream success. During his tenure with the band, Turner recorded two albums, "Can't Go Home Again" and "Do What You Love," and toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe. Despite his success with Big Brother and the Holding Company, Turner continued to pursue his solo career, releasing several solo albums throughout the 1990s and 2000s. In addition to his music and art, Turner was also a passionate advocate for animal rights and environmental causes, and frequently supported these organizations through benefit concerts and other events. Although his life was tragically cut short by cancer in 2005, Turner's impact on the blues-rock genre continues to be felt to this day.

Prior to gaining attention with Big Brother and the Holding Company, Turner was an active member of the Austin music scene, performing with various local bands such as the Rastafarians and Mother Earth. He briefly left the music industry in the early 1980s to pursue a career in graphic design, but eventually returned to music and formed The Randy Turner Band. He also collaborated with other musicians such as Tracy Nelson and Marcia Ball.

In 1992, Turner was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, but continued to perform and record music while undergoing treatments. He released his last album, "Turnerized," in 2003. Turner was also a published author, having written the book "Out of the Basement: From Cheap Trick to DIY Punk in Rockford, Illinois, 1973-2005," which chronicled his experiences in the music industry.

In addition to his musical and artistic endeavors, Turner was known for his magnetic and larger-than-life personality, as well as his dedication to political and social activism. He frequently spoke out against injustice and inequality, and used his platform to advocate for marginalized communities.

Following his death in 2005, Turner was posthumously inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in recognition of his contributions to the city's music scene.
