Joan on shaving her head: I'm bald to the skin. I had been planning it for six months, figuring if I shaved my head on the millennium, I'll sit and contemplate my life, and what it means to be alive during this time, and my hopes for the future, for humanity, for the earth, and just to really be present in that. So that was all attached to this head shaving. When this tour came up, I wanted everyone to know I was not going to change my ritual for this. I get tired of augmenting myself for other things. I didn't want to do that again, so I just figured come hell or high water, I'm shaving my head. So I did, and I love it.
