Linda Ronstadt Caricature, illustrated here in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 1976, age 30.
Ronstadt is a retired American singer who performed and recorded in diverse genres including rock, country, light opera, and Latin.
Ronstadt was the most successful female singer of the 1970s and stands as one of the most successful female recording artists in U.S. history, selling more than 100 million records.
Born in Tucson, Arizona she is of German, English, and Mexican ancestry.
Her grandfather, Lloyd Copeman was a prolific inventor who invented an early form of the toaster, many refrigerator devices, the grease gun, the first electric stove, and an early form of the microwave oven. His flexible rubber ice cube tray earned him millions of dollars in royalties.
In 1965 Ronstadt joined forces with Bobby Kimmel and Kenny Edwards and became the lead singer of a folk-rock trio, the Stone Poneys.
The band is widely known for their hit single “Different Drum” (written by Michael Nesmith prior to his joining the Monkees).
Starting in 1974, with the release of chart-topping albums such as Heart Like a Wheel, Simple Dreams, and Living in the USA, Ronstadt became the first female “arena class” rock star.
Greatest hits: “You’re No Good”, “Blue Bayou”, “Just One Look”, “When Will I Be Loved”, “Back In The USA”, “Tumbling Dice”, “Don’t Know Much”, “It’s So Easy”, “Somewhere Out There”, “Silver Threads And Golden Needles”, “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”, “I Can’t Help It”, “Desperado”, “Love Is A Rose”, “That’ll Be The Day, “Heat Wave” and “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore”.
Ronstadt reduced her activity after 2000 when she felt her singing voice deteriorating.
She released her last full-length album in 2004 and performing her last live concert in 2009.
She was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy in December 2012, which left her unable to sing.
Ronstadt was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, 2014.
