Legendary vocalist Joni Mitchell is also part of the November birthday club. The singer-songwriter turns 69 on Nov. 7.

Mitchell's experimentation with folk and jazz made her one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. She was responsible for the Grammy-nominated track Help Me, the oft-covered song Big Yellow Taxi, and such other favorites as Coyote, and Free Man In Paris.

"Artist" is a word that truly describes Mitchell, who designs her own album artwork and remained committed to painting after retiring from touring.

The photo of Joni is great. She looks fabulous.I especially like the color and the style of her outfit---so tastefully hip. She's definitely a peerless wonder.
To Joni: I, like so many of your fans I'm sure, love and cherish the person you are. Happy belated birthday. R.K.B.
