    wiki: "At the age of 8, Joni contracted polio during a 1951 epidemic in Canada, the same one in which singer Neil Young, then aged 5 and living in Ontario, also contracted the virus."

    They said I might not walk again, and that I would not be able to go home for Christmas. I wouldn't go for it. So I started to sing Christmas carols and I used to sing them real loud... The boy in the bed next to me, you know, used to complain. And I discovered I was a ham.

      Yeah polio was a big scare back then.

      I didn't get vaccinated until I was six.

      So I was scared. I wanted to go swim in a public pool once and my Mother wouldn't let me, she said that was a place you could get polio.
