Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, known for music that helped define the Woodstock generation, was in intensive care early today after being hospitalized Tuesday. TMZ.com reports that Mitchell was said to be “awake and in good spirits” in a Los Angeles-area hospital.
The 71-year-old singer known for “Big Yellow Taxi,” “Woodstock,” “Both Sides Now,” “Chelsea Morning” and other defining songs of the late Sixties and early Seventies was reportedly rushed to the hospital after paramedics received a 911 call about an unconscious female.
The nature of her medical situation was not known.
