Joni Mitchell Makes Public Appearance 17 Months after Aneurysm

Mitchell's representation confirms that the icon is "out and about."

In 2014, folk icon Joni Mitchell suffered a brain aneurysm and has seldom been pictured in public since. At the time, rumors swirled that the legend was comatose from the neurological event while dealing with Morgellons Disease, a mysterious condition that causes tactile hallucinations. Over the weekend, Mitchell appeared at a Chick Corea concert at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Los Angeles, looking well and reassuring her diehard fans that she’s on the mend.

Mitchell’s website released a photo from the appearance, adding, “We are thrilled to see Joni out and about again!” The influential singer-songwriter looked every inch herself in a black hat and a bohemian draped scarf.
