laurel canyon

anybody catch the joni mitchell episode of American Masters on pbs? heres a robot wisdom timeline of her life. i was at the 1986 amnesty international show where she was nearly booed off the stage. i never knew she was a last minute replacement for pete townsend.

got me thinking about who were the most influential women in music history. looks like vh-1 has had a series this past month with their list of The 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll. pretty good point of departure although any poll that has lucinda williams at 96 and alannis morissette at 52 is troubling. ill see if i can find other resources. anybody care to proffer a top 10?
