Joan Baez Got Married Once But Is Her Husband Still With Her? Started Dating Since Young But Now Busy With Tours
American female folk singer Joan Baez, who is in her 75 now and is still lively, living her dream life. She celebrated her birthday in the style she best knows. She made a compelling tour all the way singing throughout the US in her mission to spread positive political change through her music.
It may be a surprise to know the female artist is still single after all these years of her life. The reason may be her busy schedule for her singularity or her biological character but all the reasons are illogical in this case.
The history suggests that many males fantasized this lady from the time when she was quite young. But, hasn't she got into any relationship with any of those males? If you have the same question, you are now in the right place.
The Youthful And Married Life of Joan Baez
Joan Chandos Baez was born in State Island, New York City, US on January 9, 1941, to the couple; Albert Vinicio Baez and Joan Bridge. She is of mixed ethnicity as her father is Mexican and her mother is English.
She made her first appearance in public as a folk singer in Newport Folk Festival in 1959. Then the next year, she released her debut album on Vanguard Records, which included the songs promoting social justice, civil rights and pacifism. The album spread her fame wider, and she got an activist personality attached to her resume.
In the mid-1960s, Bob Dylan was still an unknown name for the world, but the time of his fame was near as he met Joan Baez then. Joan is the one who played a vital role in popularizing Bob. Joan helped Bob launch his career after their first meeting in 1961 by inviting him to share her stage and tour with her at every opportunity.
Their romantic relationship ended on tour in 1965, and they didn't perform together on stage after the incident. After their split, there was hardly any mention of Joan by Bob even in his autobiography. It only included cryptic comment towards Joan.
However, later Bob apologized for dumping her while he was on his infamous 1965 British road trip. He reasoned that he took the step to keep Joan getting "swept up in the madness my career had become."
The apology never came in 44 years since their split but Bob finally publicly apologized to Joan at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square for the way he treated her and broke off their 60s love affair.

Even though the relationship with Bob broke Joan's heart, she never gave up on love.
Life presented Joan with love and later in 1968, she got married to David Harris, who was one of the protesters against Vietnam War Drift. In the case of children, they share a son named Gabriel Harris, who was born in December 1969. Gabriel, who is in his 40s performs alongside Joan as her backup singer.
David and Joan weren't fortunate to stay together for a long time as David got jailed. The couple got separated in 1972, a few months after David's release.

After David, Joan Baez got linked with different persons. The name list includes Mickey Hart, Kris Kristofferson, and Steve Jobs. In 2009, she faced an interview with Telegraph and tried to settle those rumors saying:
“I was terrified of any intimacy. That’s why 5,000 people suited me just fine,”“But one-on-one, it was either completely transient—after the concert and be gone next day, and then my participation would make me sick—or it was something that I thought was real but just turned out to be heartbreaking.”
Joan didn't tie a knot to anybody, but she always had her songs and music with and hence is living a life without a husband till this date.
