Personal Quote:

When the world becomes a massive mess with nobody at the helm, it's time for artists to make their mark. See more »


Was invited to play at Woodstock, but her manager refused to let her because she was scheduled to make her national television debut on The Dick Cavett Show (1968). He saw how bad the traffic was and told her that she wouldn't make it back in time. As a result, she wrote the classic song "Woodstock", which ironically became a hit for Crosby Stills Nash & Young, who did appear at the festival. See more »
