Joni Mitchell has made few public appearances while recovering from the effects of a brain aneurysm. But the 77-year-old Canadian artist has fought hard in her recovery. 

Along the way, Mitchell has rekindled her friendship with fellow musician James Taylor. The pair's friendship first began in the 1960s.

In an interview with The Guardian, James Taylor is now sharing good news about the "Big Yellow Taxi" singer.

Joni Mitchell performs at the Thelonious Monk Jazz Tribute Concert For Herbie Hancock in 2007.
