Joan Baez, older sister to the Boomers

Joan Baez, born in 1941, is a little too old to be a Boomer. The first boomers were born in 1946. So Joan Baez was more like an older sister to us Boomers, someone we looked up to. I sometimes think that, if I’d been born for no other reason than to hear Joan Baez sing, and if the rest of my life had been nothing but a vale of tears, it would still all be worth it.

We have watched her age, and we have listened to her voice age. Her voice no longer has the agility it once had, but her musical authority is intact, and she is as beautiful as always.
