One of the great voices of the last 50 years Linda Ronstadt has announced that Parkinson's Disease has destroyed her ability to sing. Ms. Ronstadt's voice often woke me up in the morning and helped me fall asleep during my teenage years.
She could sing anything & everything. And, she did. And, she did it well. She had a great country voice, she should rock with the best of them, her Spanish albums are brilliant and her take on the American Songbook was classic and above and beyond any other pop stars attempt to sing Gershwin and his peers.
This is sad news.
