Joni Mitchell was found unconscious at her home in L.A. late last March and we haven’t really had that many updates about how she’s doing. Back in April, there was a story going around that she was in a coma and was seconds away from skipping up to the great big Woodstock stage in the sky, but her website quickly dropped a dry queef of denial on that. They said that Joni was “awake” and “alert” and was expected to make a full recovery. There hasn’t been an update since then, but during an interview with HuffPost Live about his solo tour, her friend, former old man of a minute and legendary stache wearer David Crosby said that she’s at home and recovering. David also said that the aneurysm fucked with her something real and she still can’t talk.
“I have not spoken to her. To my knowledge, she is not speaking yet. She is home, she is in care, she is in recovery. How that’s going to go, we don’t know yet. She took a terrible hit. She had an aneurysm, and nobody found her for a while. And she’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury.
I love her. She was my old lady at one point. She’s probably the best of us — probably the greatest living singer-songwriter. … We’re all holding our breath and thinking a good thought, hoping that it’s going to turn out okay.”
“Greatest living songwriter..” Um, obviously David Crosby doesn’t know that poetic lyricist Tyga is alive. Hopefully Joni Mitchell makes a full recovery because my ears need to hear her say, “Step off, bitch,” to Taylor Swift one more time.
