Default Ronstadt on Lightfoot

n Memoir, Linda Ronstadt Describes Her 'Simple Dreams'
November 28, 201312:00 PM
his interview was originally broadcast on .

With a career that spans rock, pop, country and everything in between, knows no genre, only what her voice can accomplish. Her most famous recordings include "Heart Like a Wheel," "Desperado," "Faithless Love," and many more. But Ronstadt recently revealed that she has Parkinson's disease and can no longer sing.

Her memoir, Simple Dreams, reflects on a long career that was ended by the disease years before it was diagnosed. Her conversation with Fresh Air's Terry Gross finds Ronstadt offering her frank insights on sex, drugs, and why "competition was for horse races and it never belonged in art."

Linda Ronstadt compliments Lightfoot at 27:13 in the interview:
"And I don't know, there's something in the water up there in Canada because my favorite writers are the McGarrigles sisters, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot - oh my god, what a great ballad writer - Joni Mitchell. I mean, you know, they're just, they're completely unique great writers. And in a lot of ways they're falling in the tradition of what it would be called art song."
"I'll see you all next Saturday..."

Linda's got great taste in music. So sad that she can't sing anymore. Her voice was golden & versatile!
