Linda Ronstadt releasing autobiography
Coming of musical age in Los Angeles in the mid- to late 1960′s during the birth of popular music’s country-rock genre, Linda Ronstadt is considered by many to have been the first real queen of rock and roll. With a sense of the big musical picture and a knack for covering just the right songs by relatively unknown artists (among them an early cut of “Desperado” by the Eagles), her distinctive interpretation of musical styles ranging from country and western to the big-band sound has sold in excess of 100 million records over the course of a forty-year career.
Entitled Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir, the book will be released September 17.
