Jerry Lee Lewis played, and Ronnie Hawkins (President’s Clinton’s favorite musician growing up). Stevie Nicks sang—fantastically. Her voice strong as ever and her band (according to the expert, Richard}, is tops, including the great guitarist, Waddy Wachtel.…

Had dinner with Joni Mitchell Saturday night. Never met her before but she’s known Richard for ever. I can’t remember when I’ve had a more intense, far-reaching, multifaceted conversation (right from the moment we sat down…no small talk with Joni)—from Christianity, Buddhism, the Gnostics, different forms of meditation, Ego as the original sin, to living in the wilderness north of …

Oprah called me out of the blue. I was sitting at my desk, working on my new book, the phone rang, “hello Jane?” in a somewhat husky, soft voice, “yes?”–I had no idea who it was. “It’s Oprah.” OMG! My heart started pounding. I may have told her that, I can’t remember cause I kind of blanked out for a …
