Spotlight on Linda Ronstadt

Linda Ronstadt was born in 1946 in Tucson, Arizona. After briefly attending the University of Arizona, Ronstadt moved to Los Angeles to become part of the burgeoning folk-rock movement which included The Eagles, Jackson Browne, and Neil Young. Ronstadt evolved into "The Queen of Rock," landing on the cover of Time Magazine in 1977. As the years progressed, her sound turned more toward standards and ballads, and in 1987 the animated movie An American Tail featured a song written especially for her. More recently, Ronstadt revisited her roots with Mexican folk music and Spanish-language songs. On the eve of the publication of her memoir Simple Dreams, she revealed that Parkinson's disease has left her unable to sing. Ronstadt was induced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.
