(London Independent) Guitarist and singer David Crosby has revealed that Joni Mitchell is unable to speak after suffering from a “traumatic brain injury”.

Singer-songwriter Mitchelll, 71, was hospitalized in Los Angeles on 31 March after being found unconscious at her home. Previous reports suggest that Mitchell suffered a brain aneurysm and remains in hospital.

In an interview with the Huffington Post esteemed folk singer Crosby revealed more about Mitchell’s on-going ill health. He said: “Nobody found [Mitchell] for a while. She took a terrible hit. To my knowledge she is not speaking yet… She’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury… She’s a tough girl, and very smart. So, how much she’s going to come back and when, I don’t know and I’m not going to guess.”
