Joni Mitchell (November 7, 1943)
Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
She was born Roberta Joan Anderson in Fort McLeod, Alberta, Canada. She played a variety of instruments when she was young, but her primary interest was painting. In 1965, she was married for a short time to the Folk singer Chuck Mitchell, which is where she got her last name.
Mitchell is a very honored artist: She is a member of the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame and the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. Billboard gave her their Century Award in 1995, and in 2002, she was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Grammy.
She has been smoking cigarettes since the age of 9. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France, for above 3)

"How much does it cost? I'll buy it?" Another songwriter told Jonathan to change these lyrics. Good thing he ignored this advice.
