Joni Mitchell On Charlie Rose in 2008
Joni answers questions about her childhood motivations here. To me her songs always offered great insight into life, while her musical lyricism was very inspirational. She went from a raw simplicity to very complex tonalities early on. Her tour with Pat Methany and Jaco Pastorius was a powerful wave on through to Amelia, probably because I saw her on stage several times during that period. I lived music then. Although the video was in 2008, it was prescient as she always has been a true philosopher. I agree with her accessment of what has happened in our country as her prescient vision has been amplified in the last few years! Here's some more Pat Methany and more.
