Joan Baez goes insane

Joan Baez
Joan Chandos Baez (born January 9, 1941[3]) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and activist.[4] Her contemporary folk music often includes songs of protest and social justice.[5] Baez has performed publicly for over 60 years, releasing more than 30 albums. Fluent in Spanish and English, she has also recorded songs in at least six other languages. ...

Baez performed fourteen songs at the 1969 Woodstock Festival and has displayed a lifelong commitment to political and social activism in the fields of nonviolence, civil rights, human rights, and the environment.

Her father and cousin were well-known physicists.

A new documentary tells a different story. She now says that she has suffered multiple personalities and other mental disorders all her life. In psychotherapy, she has deduced that she must have been abused as a child. She does not know exactly how. Her father denies it.

All that "social justice" stuff was probably just a symptom of her illnesses. It was a mistake to take anything she ever said seriously. The science of recovered memories is worse than witchcraft.

Go ahead and enjoy her music. She is more likely a victim of psychotherapists and Jewish influence, than her father.

Hearing Joan Baez sing 'On the banks of the Ohio' was something I always looked forward to when my parents would listen to records on Saturday mornings. The woman has a remarkable voice. I am not in the least surprised by her mental confusion, as many very artistic people seem to suffer from chronic emotional anguish of some kind or other, it might be one of the things that drew them to express themselves through the arts in the first place.

Drug use and alcohol probably are like lighter fluid on the flame of their creativity, and incredibly common with artists, usually resulting in the candle that burns half as long but oh so much brighter.
