Still Crazy


Bonnie from Colorado writes: There's a Joni reference in the 1999 film Still Crazy. It's a great movie about a '70s British rock band called Strange Fruit that tries to reunite twenty years after a really bad break up. About half way through the film the band is touring some questionable dives on the Continent trying to get up to speed for a big comeback concert in GB. Just before they go on stage, their band manager says, "It's full and noisy. There are lots of head-bangers and skin heads. It's a rough crowd." Beano, their drummer replies "Maybe we should cut the Joni Mitchell tribute."
