Joni Mitchell will be 80 on November 7th. After suffering a brain aneurysm rupture in 2015 I can say hand on heart I would not have been surprised if an announcement saying the worst was on the cards.

It didn't come and after undergoing physical therapy and learning to walk again on July 24th 2022 with the support of many friends she played a set including a solo on the guitar at the legendary Newport Folk festival in Rhode Island.

I confess to not loving 100% of her music but oh my gosh if you read her Wiki you will see what a legend she is.

She is incredibly loved and respected by so many and Brandi Carlisle especially has been with her through it all, much respect to everyone.

Here she is singing Summertime and then Circle Game with some of her friends at the 2023 Gershwin Prize concert on March 1st where she was awarded the 2023 Gershwin Prize for her lifetime contributions to popular music.

There is a long introduction before the song by the way.

Such a remarkable lady.

Saw Kristin Hersh the other day.

Not my video, but so special to see someone who was/is such an important artist playing in a room with less than 100 people in.  Can't imagine many of those who were so influenced by the Throwing Muses doing this.  She is still producing original music too.

Would recommend if she in your area. Good to not be looking over a sea of phones and nobody was chucking beer around too.


EDIT; Tried to fix invalid link David, not sure if worked.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

Thanks.  Think the links are odd on my phone, so should use my laptop really.

Gene Simmons 74 and Paul Stanley 71, 2 of the original members of Kiss.

Kiss were not just a rock band, they were a bundle of fun too and I really enjoyed the few gigs I saw from the 70's upwards.

How they continued to walk in platform shoes for the whole of their career I will never know. I let mine go as a health hazard way before the end of the 70's.

They played their last gig at Madison Square Garden on 2nd December 50 years after they played their first gig at the Coventry in NYC on Dec 21st 1973.

Enjoy this video from their last gig of Paul Stanley on a zip wire platforms and all.

Happy Retirement Kiss.
