Joni Mitchell Gets Candid In New Biography
Joni Mitchell has led a notoriously press-averse life — until now.
In a new biography from David Yaffe titled Reckless Daughter: A Portrait Of Joni Mitchell, the GRAMMY winner has candidly opened up about her life in the world of rock and roll, and she doesn't hold back.
Rolling Stone highlights some of the notable moments, including her thoughts on one-time lover James Taylor, working with David Crosby as a producer, her thoughts on Bob Dylan's Blood On The Tracks, singing while high with Neil Young, an encounter with Miles Davis, and sets the record straight about breaking up with Jackson Browne.
Her uncensored memories serve as illuminating tidbits to complement the rest of Yaffe's chronicle of the famed singer/songwriter's life. Starting with her childhood, he works his way through all of her albums and their recording, her move toward jazz, and finally through her life-threatening aneurysm in 2015.
