Most people know the legend of Judy Collins - the blue-eyed beauty - who inspired Suite Judy Blue Eyes by Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills and Nash. In this candid chat with host Robin Milling, Judy talks about the stories that have shaped her musical history.
Judy tells Robin about her on-going musical collaboration with Stills and their singing union on the CD Stills & Collins. After all these years, they are performing live together enriched even more by their friendship.
She talks about what it's like to have songs written about her and the ones she discovered along the way like Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now that gave her Top 10 success.
Along with those heady times there were demons to battle. Judy unabashedly shares her struggles with alcoholism and how she continues one day at a time to deal with the debilitating addiction that almost cost her career.
At 79, Collins shows no signs of slowing down. She tells Robin about her future plans and what she hopes to accomplish in the worlds of music, books, and possibly even Broadway.
