Joan Baez%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%A6what an amazing, cool and talented woman

I'm old enough to remember Joan Baez in the late 60s (I even remember being taken to one of her concerts by my baby sitter) but I was still too young to have realized she was such a huge folk star in her day.%0D %0D I'm watching a PBS "American Masters" about her. WOW, she was/is something. She made the cover of Time Magazine as one of or the premier folk singer in the 60s. She is also a very brave and caring and complex person. She is so open about what drove her in her professional and personal life. She devoted her life to peace and helping others. She is still physically beautiful without a hint of having anything "done." She seems to the epitome of aging gracefully. Her voice is still incredible. %0D %0D If you catch this episode of "American Masters" it's a must see. When I think of those that have fame today like Spears, Madonna and those like them and compare them to someone like Baez it makes me ill. No wonder the world is in such sorry shape and our youth for the most part are such selfish morons. What a difference between what they admire and their role models today and what the youth of the 1960s admired and had as role models.%0D %0D My heart is breaking as I listen to Baez's voice cracking with tears as she's talking about her sister Mimi dying of cancer.%0D
