Joni Mitchell Apparently Owns a KISS Pinball Machine
Published Aug 16, 2021Not only is Joni Mitchell a revered songwriter and accomplished painter, but also a veritable pinball wizard who reportedly owns a KISS pinball machine.
The revelation came from KISS frontman Paul Stanley, who shared on Twitter last week (August 14) that he and Mitchell got to chatting after running into the recent Kennedy Center honoree at a restaurant.
"I spent a few minutes last night catching up with @jonimitchell...I'm always in awe of her artistic journeys & spirit," Stanley wrote. "Even through the devastation of an aneurysm she shines. Joni reminded me that she has a KISS pinball machine. What an incredible woman. Love her."
Earlier this year, Mitchell's official Twitter account shared a pinball-playing shot from 1991 in which she looks incredibly focused, though as some eagle-eyed users pointed out, her cabinet of choice at that particular moment was Sorceror.

This year, it was announced that KISS will be the subject of both a Netflix biopic and A&E documentary.
