I'm 58 years old and remember her. Music was ok but Politically she sucked!!! She appears to have taken too many drugs. And its use caused her to think that her opinions were valid. Since I hadn't heard anything coming from her ugly mug lately I thought she was dead. But I guess that nobody cares what she thinks or says anymore so she no longer has validity in the real world.

If we memba´ her? Are you crazy? She was one of the biggest singers and celebrities of her time, in the top five or so, with one of the most beautiful and most moving voices. It has a fantastic vibrato only challenged by that of Michael Jackson, and we who experienced her never ever forgot. So she is still a star, and she still performs.

To those who haven't yet - go to youtube and listen to her! Please!
Among the clips you must watch is "Diamonds and rust", the one she wrote in the seventies about her long romance with Bob Dylan. He was unknown back then and latched on to marvelous Joan at least partly to get famous.She was called "the dark madonna" - the real madonna, not the singer, who hadn't yet begun her career back then.

Anti-American piece of garbage. Spit on a soldier in the airport after Viet-Nam war. Will NEVER listen to any of her music intentionally EVER again. No time for bad people. Besides, she's not that talented anyway - monotone voice - no expression. Sounded like a dude singing folk music.

I'm fascinated with that frequent "anti-American" stuff. It sounds paranoid. Where I live, we never accuse each other of not loving our country if we have different opinions, because that is what you do in a democracy.

FOLK songs, TMZ, you dolts.

Why do you have so many glaring errors in your posts? Doesn't anyone on your staff proofread? You really need to up your game. As in literacy.
