*****another icon turning 70 - A long interview but if you can spare the time it is one of the best i have seen - she is a very bright person, well read and brimming with creativity - a gem - outrageous at times but man you got to love the frankness. she certainly doesn't hold back about here peers
****She's a lovely person. I got to chat with her when tuning her piano in her Philly apartment. Humble and caring about everything and everybody! Treated the help at the apartment as if her peers.
****Her and Paul would have made an interesting couple! Both 71 too!
***I'm curious. In one breath you note she was humble and caring then in the next you say "as IF her peers". Do you mean to say that she is actually better than they are as a person? If so, just why? Is it because she has a lot of money and sings for it and they have to live by the sweat of their brow? I'm just curious what about her you see makes her superior to other people.
**Huh?????? Boy did you again take the opposite street!
**Since we are long time friends, I will explain it in detail, so not to be on the road again:
**ya know who people in the business of anything will pay attention to the ones that they are working with,,for they are WORKING together, or competing with each other, or doing business in a big way, (career wise, that is)? Well,,,unlike some celebs I have come across, (about 200 or so), who will JUST acknowledge who is there with the same kind of star status and such. (I can name a few who did that to the ugly tenth degree, but I won't),,,Joni Mitchell treated people how nice people NOT thinking of status treats people! Personable. Caring to others. Not overlooking anyone that isn't in her business circle, for example.
**Nothing more to it than that, David! She is a normal, nice person, leaving Ego of her success to just maybe think about things by herself. She didn't act like a high and mighty celeb, in other words.
**I wonder why you and HJ seem to often take a negative spin on what I say? Assume the other way PLEASE, and I'll let you know if that way is off center after you reply,,,which will be at least a lot less times! :) LOL :)
*I didn't assume anything. I said I was curious at how you worded that. consider:
*"as IF her peers"
*as opposed to
*"as her peers"
*using "if" in this sense is ambiguous.
*Just yanking your chain cuz I like getting you excited.
*It makes me smile.
