Linda Ronstadt

Linda originally began her music in the folk-rock and country-rock scene, playing at the Troubadour. However, after a few changes to her music, she was soon named the “Queen of Rock” and “First Lady of Rock,” by the media. She made 31 gold and platinum records and won 10 Grammys. Unfortunately, in 2013, Linda announced she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, and can no longer sing. However, she remains strong and even released her memoir, that same year, titled “Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir.”
