Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is recovering in hospital after suffering from a brain aneurysm and she is unable to speak. Mitchell, famous for one of her songs “Big Yellow Taxi” was found unconscious in her home and hospitalized in March this year. Her former partner and close friend David Crosby said in a statement “I have not spoken to her. To my knowledge, she is not speaking yet. She is home, she is in care, she is recovering. How that’s going to go, we don’t know yet.
He went to say that, “she took a terrible hit. She had an aneurysm, and nobody found her for a while. And she’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury. I love her. She was my old lady at one point. She’s probably the best of us – probably the greatest living singer-songwriter. We’re all holding our breath and thinking a good thought, hoping that it’s going to turn out okay“. We wish her the very best and hope for a very speedy recovery.
