Colin Randall Joan Baez fall from treehouse-how is she? (93* d) RE: Joan Baez fall from treehouse-how is she? 02 Jul 11

These were the relevant comments as posted at my site Salut! Live. They add a little detail (and a useful link to some excellent photos from the concert in Marseille) ...

And those of us who have been wondering for months about the details of
Joan's treehouse accident now know that she fell close to 20 feet -
yikes! No wonder the tweet she sent out at the time said it was a time
for rejoicing, a free-fall from that height could break a back or neck
or crack open a skull....

I was in marseille...She told that she fell from her tree-house after a night in it, in the morning...
Now she feels she told me....Sometimes tired but it doesn't hurt her....
The concert was excellent. She finished with here's to you, with a standing ovation ans the public singing with her.

We've waited a long time for any details at all about her fall, thanks to all for passing along her comments. Can you imagine her simple, human EMBARRASSMENT at having fallen while doing something so familiar to her - and which means so much to her?!

Did anyone notice that, if you click the second link under the photo in Colin's review, you get to another review, in French - I believe by the photographer. It has the set list ("possibly a bit out of order"), and ALSO a "bonus video"- a piece of a song.

OOH! and a whole gazillion pictures! Link snuck up on me, here it is directly:
