Joan is a Four Letter Word

10/3/2009 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 68-year-old resurfaced jammin' her six string at a folk festival recently, looking condensed.



Joan has a three-octave vocal range and a distinctively rapid vibrato.

In 2006, Baez performed at the funeral of Lou Rawls.

Joan looks amazing. Don't know what you are saying about those teeth-- those are the same big ol' teeth she always had. Joan loves America. She was never anti American. She was anti war. And she has made this place a better place to live, even if you are too young to know who she is. If you think you have the right to say what you want to say, if you think it is wrong to be forced to fight a war, or to pay for one, then she is on your side.

Joan Baez is an American Icon from the days when talent ruled over trash. She looks amazing, but I doubt if she dated Bob Dylan....(maybe his sister).

Joan, if you are reading these mostly insulting posts (excuse them, they don't know the definition of "class")....I loved you and your work way-back-when and also when you performed several times at Britt Festivals in my hometown of Jacksonville, Oregon and bought an adorable dress from a local store called Alexandra's that you wore onstage and pirouetted to show it off! You ARE a class act!

Love her, still listen to "Gracias a la vida" and other albums.
Her sister, folksinger Mimi Farina, passed away a few years ago. Joan was a champion for Bob Dylan in the early days. Their romance was brief, but they made wonderful music together.

A good book on Joan and her circle of friends is "Positively Fourth Street."

She looks great! Her voice is still beautiful as well. As for the people that are making nasty comments, let's see how you look at the age, once the ugliness you carry inside seeps out for everyone to see. Most of you were not even born in the 60's and don't know what you are talking about. Get over yourself.

She may have thought that she was dating Bob, but he was simply using her. She still doesn't seem to get that part even forty-odd years later.
Oh,well, all of the moronic liberation movements of the past four decades have needed Joanie more than Bobby ever would have. Must be some kind of consolation.
