I'm quitting this corporate cesspool: Why Joni Mitchell has had it with the music business

David Simpson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Joni Mitchell has often been called "the greatest ever female singer-songwriter", although she has been known to object to the use of the word "female". Many of her hits, including Big Yellow Taxi and Woodstock, are legendary; her albums, such as The Hissing of Summer Lawns, classics. After 35 years in the business, the original woman with a guitar is one of few artists on a par with Bob Dylan. She has inspired Madonna, Prince, and virtually every female singer-songwriter.

Which makes it all the more surprising that she has decided to walk away.
