Yum, indeed.

I looked better in 1978, too.

Now I have a "You're No Good" earworm.

But at least Eddie Van Halen is playing rhythm.

Can you believe Jerry Brown was doing lines of coke off that ass?

In her Commando days...

I, for one, would have loved to wake up to those eyes.
 
2014-07-15 12:31:41 PM  
Yep.

I usually don't recommend that anyone watch the Rock N Roll hall of fame induction ceremony, but the Linda Ronstadt induction was awesome. Carrie Underwood, then Bonnie Raitt and Emilou Harris(With Underwood on backing vocals), then Sheryl Crow(With Underwood, Raitt and Harris on backing), finally, Stevie Nicks, with the rest of the gals on backing vocals... I like how they did that...

Unfortunately, this cell phone video by an eplileptic is the best I could find of the whole performance.

I sang with her on an Aaron Neville album many years ago. She was funny and fun to be around. Her current state makes me sad.

(Let's see how old you all are...)

You know why Linda Ronstadt sings so slow?
She's got a governor on her.

The originals that she butchers are always better:

Actually, it is my understanding that she can't sing any more as a result of the Parkinsons.

As to the video, why would you have the greatest female singer of the last 50 years interrupted by a guitar solo?

What I can't believe is the second life Jerry Brown is having.

And so sad that Linda has Parkinson's.

Fun fact: before the Eagles Glenn Frey was in her backing band.

Actually, when she was being inducted into RRHOF, Frey pretty much said that she gave him and Henley(I think it was) the idea(And permission, I guess) to form their own band. Sounds like she was very supportive and helped where she could.

Damn shame.

Thanks to all  the nice people who pointed out that she's now in the Rock'n'Roll hall of fame. A long overdue honour.

She's never been blessed with good health. Her thyroid disease stole her career in the early 80s and she never recovered truly. What a shame to have all of that talent, fame, good looks and money but no health to go with it.

I will fap to her old album covers tonight in tribute.

Damn shame.


From the NYT article on her book and illness:

"Every time Emmy comes to town, I wish I could get up on stage with her," Ms. Ronstadt said. "I know I'd be allowed to, but I can't do it." Instead she will sit in the audience "and think the notes I'd be singing" in earlier times."I have no choice," she added, withheld passion at last surging to the surface, just as it does in the songs she made her own. "If there was something I could work on, I'd work on it till I could get it back. If there was a drug I could take to get it back, I would take the drug. I'd take napalm. But I'm never going to sing again."

Very Sad news indeed.

I really liked her twangy take on William Bell's "Everybody Loves A Winner."

I'm pretty sure that clip was done in a state prison. Maybe Folsom with Johnny Cash? Driving the inmates crazy in that little getup.

My 84 year old father is a huge fan of hers so I had to google to make sure my memory was correct and your was wrong.  And I was right

The thyroid thing happened in the 90s.  You must be from a different time line than me because in the 80s she had:

Pirates of Penzance - everyone had the soundtrack to the movie and she also was on the stage in New York for it a bit.

1984 is when she started hanging out with Nelson Riddle and had Whats New(triple platinum) and Lush Life(platinum) and headlined at the Worlds Fair in New Orleans, I was at the show.  She also had a gold record with Sentimental Reasons.

1987 had a platinum record called Trio with Dolly Parton and Emmy Lou Harris.

She also won two grammys singing with Aaron Neville.

She had a new wave lp in the early 80s that didn't sell well and she also had two singing traditional mexican/spanish songs that had ok sales.

Has a 11 Grammys, and most of them one in the 1980s.

I fondly remember a concert she did in Tucson, AZ ('80 or '81), she was wearing a football jersey and heels. Tucson was hometown for her and she said the outfit was to annoy her family.

When Steve Vai auditioned for Frank Zappa's band, he made him play something in a ridiculous time signature, and when Vai said it was impossible Frank replied "Oh, well I think Linda Ronstadt needs a guitar player..."

Would you listen to that? No autotune.

I played the bejeezus out of this song because I loved Gold's guitar solo.

He did indeed. He wanted to settle down, she didn't. So she split.
