Joni Mitchell Trashes Bob Dylan

No love lost here, apparently: Folk singer Joni Mitchell trashes Bob Dylan in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. After the interviewer observes that, “The folk scene you came out of had fun creating personas. You were born Roberta Joan Anderson, and someone named Bobby Zimmerman became Bob Dylan,” Mitchell replies, “Bob is not authentic at all. He's a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception. We are like night and day, he and I.”
