“I have not spoken with her. To my knowledge she is not speaking yet,” he said. “She is home. She is in care. She is recovering. How that’s going to go, we don’t know yet.”

Crosby said Mitchell “took a terrible hit” akin to a traumatic brain injury, suffering from an aneurysm. “Nobody found her for a while and she’s going to have to struggle back from it,” he said.

But he has high hopes for Mitchell’s recovery. “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,” he said. “I love her. She was my old lady….She’s probably the best of us — probably the greatest living singer/songwriter.”

Someone not in that category, Crosby said, is Kanye West, who he maintains is a “poser.”

“Kanye West can’t write, sing or play,” he said. “So I have trouble with him as anything but a poser. Produce. That means he sits in a chair while the engineer does the work.”
