I got to see her in the 70's at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.  She was amazing!

Linda Ronstadt, a favorite of mine, has Parkinson's Disease. 

Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Oh how funny to see this topic pop up. Had my headphones on while working out this morning. Adele came on and thought of how I wish I could sing then thought about Linda Ronstadt and how I always loved hearing her belt out those notes. Beautiful voice. Blue Bayou  especially since she really hits those high notes. I wanted so much to be able to sing like her. However, not being able to even carry a tune, there was no way. Yeah, that was my only drawback...sure.

She was diagnosed with Parkinson's a few years back. So sad.

@LTT1, yes I did, it was good and I didn't even know she was known to them.

A lesser known song of hers that I just love is "Someone to Lay Down Beside Me". 


It's also a Karla Bonoff song, but I like Linda's version better.
