“CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle King has always been much more than Oprah Winfrey’s best friend. But it is only in the past 10 years that she has really emerged from Oprah’s shadow. Gayle is celebrating her 10-year anniversary with CBS News this week where she has been the most popular and consistent presence on their morning show. Over this past decade, she has been on the ground sharing many important stories, including the separation of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border, the billionaire space race, the murder of George Floyd, the R. Kelly case, and many more.

This just popped up as a suggested video on YouTube and who am I not to share it with you all?

Let’s just imagine that someone said to me: “You can only listen to one song for the rest of your life. Pick one.”
I know what song I would pick: Joan Baez’s Diamonds and Rust.
It is so pretty and meaningful with lyrics written by Miss Baez that are reportedly about her relationship with Bob Dylan in the 60s. The song recounts an out-of-the-blue phone call from an old lover, which sends her a decade back in time, to a “crummy” hotel in Greenwich Village; she recalls giving him a pair of cuff-links, and summarizes that memories bring “diamonds and rust.”
Diamonds and Rust has come to have even more meaning to me because it is the only song that a late friend of mine, who died in 2009, enjoyed singing together. He loved heavy metal (I do not) so he had the Judas Priest version in his head while I had Miss Baez’s. I loved singing that song with my friend Walt and cherish the memories of doing so more now than ever.
Anyway, Miss Baez turns 81 years old today! She’s had a legendary career with more than two dozen albums and recorded songs in at least half a dozen languages. She performs everything from folk, rock and pop to country, lullabyes and gospel.
In 2017, the woman who performed at Woodstock, Live Aid and the Newport Folk Festival, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and last year was a Kennedy Center Honors recipient. She also received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the 49th Grammy Awards in 2007.
Here is a 1975 performance of Diamonds and Rust as well as a second video with the lyrics and many images of Baez and Dylan:
