Your list of former lovers is inferior to Joan Baez’s.

You could say this about Joan Baez: She’s appeared, Zelig-style, with everyone, from Steve Jobs in Palo Alto to Bob Dylan in the Village and Martin Luther King Jr. in Mississippi.

She is now returning to New York. She will celebrate her 75th birthday on January 27 at the Beacon Theatre with Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and other guests.

Of course, Baez claims that she feels about 20 years younger. She says to The Post, “Your body betrays you, that’s for sure.” But in my case, the spirit never really goes away.

She laughs and says, “I never did the drugs everyone thought I did,” even though pictures of her with Jimi Hendrix appear to show her smoking what appears to be a bong. Baez is still only 75% of the way there if she is anything like her mother, who lived for a week after turning 100.
