  • Linda Maria Ronstadt (born July 15, 1946) is an American popular music singer. She has earned 11 Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, and an ALMA Award, and many of her albums have been certified gold, platinum or multiplatinum in the United states and internationally. She has also earned nominations for a Tony Award and a Golden Globe award. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014. On July 28, 2014, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts and Humanities. In total, she has released over 30 studio albums and 15 compilation or greatest hits albums. Ronstadt charted 38 Billboard Hot 100 singles, with 21 reaching the top 40, 10 in the top 10, three at number 2, and "You're No Good" at number 1. This success did not translate to the UK, with only her single "Blue Bayou" reaching the UK Top 40. Her duet with Aaron Neville, "Don't Know Much", peaked at number 2 in December 1989. In addition, she has charted 36 albums, 10 top-10 albums and three number 1 albums on the Billboard Pop Album Chart. Her autobiography, Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir, was published in September 2013. It debuted in the Top 10 on the New York Times Best Sellers List. Ronstadt has collaborated with artists in diverse genres, including Bette Midler, Billy Eckstine, Frank Zappa, Rosemary Clooney, Flaco Jiménez, Philip Glass, Warren Zevon, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Dolly Parton, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, and Nelson Riddle. She has lent her voice to over 120 albums and has sold more than 100 million records, making her one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. Christopher Loudon, of Jazz Times, wrote in 2004 that Ronstadt is "blessed with arguably the most sterling set of pipes of her generation." After completing her last live concert in late 2009, Ronstadt retired in 2011. She was diagnosed as having Parkinson's disease in December 2012, which left her unable to sing. (en)
  • Linda Ronstadt (Tucson, Arizona, Estados Unidos, 15 de julio de 1946) conocida también por el sobrenombre de La Reina del Rock o la Primera Dama del Rock, nacida como Linda Susan Marie Ronstadt, fue una cantante estadounidense, hoy retirada, cercanamente asociada al género country y rock prevalente en la década de 1970; pero se la conoce mejor por interpretar canciones de otros autores. Aunque comenzó su carrera de cantante grabando música folclórica con su banda The Stone Poneys desde mediados y hasta el final de la década de 1960, ha sido acreditada como una artista solista, cantando diversos géneros, desde el más tradicional country al rhythm & blues, incluyendo entre otros new wave, ópera, bolero y mariachi.Su biografía de la página web Rolling Stone dice: No tiene éxito en cada estilo que prueba, pero eso no le ha impedido explorar nuevas avenidas... Echa un vistazo a sus grabaciones a trío con Emmylou Harris y Dolly Parton; son la escucha esencial para admiradores de todo tipo de música. (es)

dbp:quote
  • "Your musical soul is like facets of a jewel, and you stick out one facet at a time ... I tend to work real hard on whatever it is I do, to get it up to speed, up to a professional level. I tend to bury myself in one thing for years at a time."
  • "Everybody has their own level of doing their music. ... Mine just happened to resonate over the years, in one way and another, with a significant enough number of people so that I could do it professionally."
  • "Rampant eclecticism is my middle name."
  • "In the United States we spend millions of dollars on sports because it promotes teamwork, discipline, and the experience of learning to make great progress in small increments. Learning to play music together does all this and more."
  • "Rock is the thumping heart of Linda's music, and the rock world is dominated by males. The biggest stars are male, and so are the back-up musicians ... rock beats are ... phallic, and lyrics ... masculine. ... Janis Joplin, the first great white woman rocker, rattled the bars ... but she died. ... Joni Mitchell ... stylish compete in drawing power with men ... Linda Ronstadt ... has made herself one of the biggest individual rock draws in the world."
  • "When sang, it was a beautiful and different sound I've never heard before. We as individual parts, because we didn't have the luxury of spending a lot of time together on a tour bus ... and knowing each other's moves ... takes years."
  • "Music is meant to lighten your load. By singing it ... you release . And release yourself ... an exercise in exorcism. ... You exorcise that emotion ... and diminish sadness and feel joy."
  • "Judy Henske, who was the then reigning queen of folk music, said to me at The Troubadour, 'Honey, in this town there are four sexes. Men, women, homosexuals, and girl singers.'"
  • "I don't record that I didn't hear in my family's living room by the time I was 10. It just is my rule that I don't break because ... I can't do it authentically ... I really think that you're just hard-wiring in your brain up until the age of maybe 12 or 10, and there are certain things you can't learn in an authentic way after that."
  • "I now realize I was taking a tremendous risk, and that Joe Smith was looking out for himself, and for me. When it became apparent I wouldn't change my mind, he said: 'I love Nelson so much! Can I please come to the sessions. I said 'Yes.' "When the albums ... were successful, Joe congratulated me, and I never said 'I told you so.'"
  • "I grew up singing Mexican music, and that's based on indigenous Mexican rhythms. Mexican music also has an overlay of West African music, based on huapango drums, and it's kind of like a 6/8 time signature, but it really is a very syncopated 6/8. And that's how I attack vocals."
  • "In general when you fall in love with an artist and their music, the plan is a fairly simple one. .. get people to go and see them, and make a record that you think properly presents their music to the public and some of which you can get on the radio."
  • "If I didn't hear it on the radio, or if my dad wasn't playing it on the piano, or if my brother wasn't playing it on the guitar or singing it in his boys' choir, or my mother and sister weren't practicing a Broadway tune or a Gilbert and Sullivan song, then I can't do it today. It's as simple as that. All of my influences and my authenticity are a direct result of the music played in that Tucson living room."
  • " enough clout and ... after years and years of making commercial records, I was entitled to experiment ... the success of the ... entitled me to try the Mexican stuff."
