Liza and Streisand take notes.
Everyone under 40
- Oh, I would pay to see her in concert even though I know her voice isn''t what it once was. Oh, the nascent lesbo longing with her version of "Alison"...
- I''m just glad the fattie is still alive.\
- Fievel''s Song, Duh!
Bet you know the words, R1
- What did she do that got her fired from the Aladdin hotel in Vegas? Didn''t she say something contoversial and a bunch of people walked out?
- She''s had a pretty fabulous career, though her biggest hits were in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Thanks for all the music, Linda!
- Is that the girl Serena played today?
Chris Evert, world''s worst tennis commentator
- She had a great career and apparently made and saved enough money to walk away when things no longer suited her. Loved her for a long, long time....
- Linda Ronstadt bump
- Wasn''t she a two hit wonder? Different Drum and Blue Bayou.
- Remember when Linda was the hottest thing in music?
Gov. Jerry Brown
- What the fuck happened to her?
- Now she''ll have time to leisurely lose weight.
- She likes sandwiches.
- Good for her. And she was s owing hot back in the day.
- She''s so fat, she''s so fat, she''s so fat\
Baby, she''s so fat
I''m gonna say it again
- OK, that bugs me R15.\
- I like stuff with cream on it.
- R17 I think R15 meant to write "so f-ing hot"
- Love When Will I be Loved? and Long, Long Time
- You know what that means. I''ll be lifting her ass on the next season of Dancing With The Stars.
- For r10:
- I can''t insert youtube links (any tips how?) but her version of I Won''t Be Hangin'' Round is so worth a listen - it still gives me shivers.

- Linda Ronstadt & Phoebe Snow perform "It''s In His Kiss" on SNL May 19, 1979%0D\
- Someone to lay down beside me, still sends shivers down my spine when I hear that song.
She was the shit!
- Linda Ronstadt & Cher perform "Drift Away" and "Rip it Up" - 1975
- Oh my GAWD! Linda looked amazing back then.
- Love, love love that, R25. Thanks!!
Sad about things that will never happen again
- Linda looked good with the short-haired perm, the longhaired perm? Not so much.
- Good god I hate Linda Rondstadt. Glad that old sow is quitting the business.
- Linda Ronstadt....Is a really fat tub of shit!
- Ah, a prelude to a comeback tour.
- Loved so much of her music but her "What''s New" retro album of standards was about as soulless a piece of drek as I have ever heard. She "services" all those songs but there is no style, no heart. And THAT album started the whole nostalgia trend for singers recording "the standards." Good that those songs have not been forgotten but oh, once that barn door was opened, how many SHIT versions of the classics have been foisted on the American public? Rod Stewart sings the standards anyone? You have Ronstadt to thank for that.
- She had great pipes and beautiful tone, but not much soul or swing. Granted the Cher show isn''t really her scene, but she sounds really stiff on "Drift Away". She was better on stuff like "Long Long Time" where she could just wail and show off the beauty of her voice.
- Did Ronstadt ever refer to her Mexican background before the "Canciones" album revived her flagging career for a while, or was it sort of like coming out of the closet after you''re washed up?
- this one\
love you linda
- Wasn''t she a two hit wonder? Different Drum and Blue Bayou.\
And "When Will I Be Loved?" and "You''re No Good" and "Hurt So Bad" and "Ooh Baby Baby" and "Heat Wave" and "Don''t Know Much" and "It''s So Easy" and "Back in the USA" and "All My Life" and "To Know Him Is to Love Him" and...
- Talk to me of Mendocino - magic!
- Thanks R24. Took me a while because of primetime.
- [quote]Good god I hate Linda Rondstadt. Glad that old sow is quitting the business.%0D\
Did r31 think this would come across as hip or cutting edge? I think it would be hysterical to drop a concrete block on R31''s fingers as he attempts to post another message. That would be edgy. %0D\
- Wasnt your mother a whore, r11?
- love this song
- Hey Carly, I may be fat but I still got all my money, bitch!
Rotund Linda strikes again~
- [quote]What did she do that got her fired from the Aladdin hotel in Vegas? Didn''t she say something contoversial and a bunch of people walked out?\
Pretty much an over-reaction by certain audience members and Aladdin''s management to her mention of Michael Moore in a song dedication. Not in MY America! The horror!\
And now, an obscure B side. Lovely.
- I''m getting really nervous.
Pastry within you know whose reach ...
- Is that fat Patti Austin doing backups in r25 ''s video?
- Wonderful singer - underrated by jealous hacks who prevailed in the later 70s when everyone who had set the bar died. Wonderful singer - much better than others still working. Her voice is full and lush, her pitch and phrasing exactly on the money, and her album of standards was lovely.
- I had a professor once that knew the rich and famous because he came from a prestigious background. He once went to Africa on a Safari with a bunch of his friends. One of his friends that went on the trip was Linda Ronstadt. He said Linda? Jerry Brown is gay. She said, no really he%E2%80%99s not. My professor laughed and said to Linda, yeah right! She kept insisting that Jerry is straight, but my professor said he still thought Jerry Brown is gay. I think it was inside info he knew I guess?%0D\
Also, I have heard this somewhere else, but someone said Linda used to be very thin because she was a big cocaine user.
- Love r25s video, but, God, Phoebe Snow looks like a bit player on "Phyllis."
- Good for her. Great career unlike the jealous dreamers and failures on this board. Which is what - about 99%?
- Looks like Joni Mitchell has ''retired'' too - Linda was always in her shadow really. Back then I used to love all that LA music scene in the 70s with Linda and the Eagles, the Byrds and Randy Meisner. Joni was the queen of it all of course.%0D\
Linda had a few good albums I liked and that first album of standards. Good that she was savvy with her money. Now any old has-been like Rod Stewart turns out Standards albums... Joni''s 2000 one was the best.
- Remember when I used to walk around with a coke spoon up my nose?
Tubby Linda, wondering if I should start doing blow again
- Including yourself R52.
- Linda slightly altered the lyrics on her version of Warren Zevon''s "Carmelita." WZ liked it well enough that he began using her revisions:
- Loved her duet with James Ingram of "Somewhere Out There."%0D\
Also, "That''s Easy For You To Say," by Jimmy Webb.
- What happened to her? She got old, that''s what happened to her.%0D\
She always had a tendency to be overweight. She''s chubby in a lot of earlier pictures of her. She did have a serious problem with cocaine, at least I think she did, and that might have helped her keep her weight down. %0D\
She really was gorgeous at one time; heart-shaped face, big brown eyes, a sexy mouth. %0D\
I thought her voice was pretty, but she had little range. She always sounding ridiculous singing songs like "Tumbling Dice" and always made a mess out of her versions of Elvis Costello songs.
- I saw her live about 6 yrs ago and she still sounded excellent. Didn''t do enough hits, ''though.
- R58, you don''t know what you''re talking about, she has an amazing vocal and stylistic range. No other singer has recorded as many genres. Her version of "Tumbling Dice" is excellent, Mick Jagger was there when she recorded it and she sang it with him live at Stones concert.
- She did so much cocaine in the late 70s/early 80s she blew out the membrance between her nostrils.%0D\
True story. She had to have surgery to repair it. It''s amazing her nose didn''t get that collapsed look that some got.
- I think that''s an urban legend, r61, how could she continue to tour and record if that happened to her, it would affect her singing voice! She never looked like strung out on coke either. And she toured almost constantly for every album in the 70s & 80s. Up to the 90s actually. I don''t blame her for retiring, she worked really hard. Much harder than today''s pop tarts.
- [quote]had little range%0D\
Oops! Something from another thread obviously slipped in. We''re discussing Linda Ronstadt, not Rod Stewart.
- She''s a really fat tub of shit!
- Stevie Nicks was the one who blew out her nose from coke use.
- Helen Reddy was the first to set the retirement trend.
- [quote]I thought her voice was pretty, but she had little range. \
R58, oh my sides!\
Start watching this at about 3:00. It''s "Desperado" with Nelson Riddle and his orchestra, up a half-step from the key she always sang it in with her bands.
- [quote]I thought her voice was pretty, but she had little range. %0D\
Exactly! She had a voice for rock and big band. It''s not as if she would ever be called upon to sing Gilbert and Sullivan or a Puccini opera.%0D\
- [quote]I think that''s an urban legend, [R61], how could she continue to tour and record if that happened to her, it would affect her singing voice! \
It happened to Glen Frey too. His nose had to be reconstructed with teflon coated metal plates.
- Ronstadt did indeed have nasal surgery to correct cocaine abuse. I think it was discussed when she got her "Time" magazine cover.%0D\
Her sister was married to Mikal Gilmore, brother of Gary. Her father and grandfather were famous inventors.%0D\
Linda has made some serious missteps as a singer, my least favorite being her terrible cover of "Heat Wave." But give her the right material, like her duet with Aaron Neville, and she can create magic.
- I like the performances she did with the McGarrigle Sisters.
- If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it does it make a sound?
- Ronstadt''s controversial "New Wave" album Mad Love is an underrated gem. She was the%EF%BB%BF best interpreter of Elvis Costello''s material. Here she is performing The Hollies'' "I Can''t Let Go" from the album. Incredible vocals.
- I love MAD LOVE, have the poster, cd, and live dvd of that tour. Costello initially said he didn''t like her covers of his stuff but he recently noted he didn''t mind the royalty checks!
- And I think Elvis admitted Linda was an excellent singer as well. Well, he should, she is one of the best ever. Much better than Celine Dion (barf!) or Christina Acquilera.
- I love her Mambo album, Frenesi.
- She threw a fish bone at Carly Simon when they were both dining at the restaurant Citrus on Melrose in LA. This was either the late 80s or early 90s.\
Linda was sitting at a table near Carly''s and Carly made some snide remark about Linda being loud and drunk, which Linda overheard.\
Linda slung a fish skeleton at Carly screaming, "Shut the fuck up!"
- [quote]Chris Evert, world''s worst tennis commentator\
My new favourite DL troll!
Seriously, I love the Chris Evert, world''s worst tennis commentator troll
- I don''t understand all the hate. I''m sure Linda loves the gays. She''s very liberal. She fucked Jerry Brown, for God''s sake!
- The extra construction to support the stages for her weight made the ticket costs prohibitive. They tried to get her to follow the Barbara Cook gigs but Cook has been slowing down since she turned 80.\
Too bad. Linda has so much to give.
- Not all 65 year olds can look as hot as I do.
Joan "What Makes a Semi Legend Moist?" Rivers
- Some of her more recent gigs were with Gay Men''s Chorus in L.A. and I think she did one in NYC too. Very supportive of gays and Mexican immigrants. Good for her. But I don''t see where she says she''s 100% retired in the link. So hoping it''s not true.
- Also r58, have you heard her version of Party Girl? It surpasses Costello''s
- Only elder-gays care about this nobody.\
- she''s pretty much been a house wife in Tuscon, and happily so, for the past twenty years.
- Linda Ronstadt''s name is still well known and her music still gets radio play. She has also been one of the more diverse performers - basically doing whatever caught her fancy from about the 1980s. %0D\
"Only elder-gays care about this nobody."%0D\
Not accurate R84! But do tell us who YOU listen to.
- Linda has started work on her memoir - Heart Like a Wheel - to be published by Simon & Schuster in (at this stage) 2013.
- What, no love for Pirates of Penzance?
- Why now she was just the best pop/country/mariachi/standards/opera singer ever. %0D\
Good heavens whoever will replace her? A polka/cumbia/jazz/gospel/bluegrass singer?%0D\
- Here you go R88.%0D\
- Aw, shuddup already, r84, and go listen to Justin or Britney. Ageism is SO not cool.
- I thought Pirates of Penzance ruined her career!%0D\
Just listed to Long,Long Time via youtube - completely forgot about that song - it''s great!
- "Linda has so much to give." So does Pepsi.
- Great singer - wasted on Cher and Gagme fans on DL.
- [quote]Her sister was married to Mikal Gilmore, brother of Gary. Her father and grandfather were famous inventors%0D\
Mikal Gilmore''s book about his family, "Shot in the Heart," won several big-name literary prizes. It''s a great book.
- When a lazy entertainer retires and nobody''s there to witness it, does she even make a sound?
- I don''t think Linda is an actress, and some of her vocal performances come off as studied and removed, but COME ON, it''s an amazing, AMAZING instrument. \
She also has great taste, and I believe her wide range of genres and styles came from artistic curiosity rather than desperation for a hit. \
She was a great live performer- again no actress, but she was vocally superb. I saw her in Pirates a few times, La Boheme, a few rock concerts, one of the Nelson Riddle concerts, and she was always on the money. \
Thanks for reminding me how much I like her, OP!
Don''t Know Much, But I Know I Love Linda!
- "Feels Like Home"\
Heard her sing it five years ago and she still sounded great.
- Here''s an incredible clip of Ronstadt performing Tom Petty''s "The Waiting" on Letterman.
- I still like "Different Drum" with the old Stone Poneys.
- Love Linda. Hate her politics. Love her songs, especially the older stuff.
The Nelson Riddle stuff isn't bad but it exposes her as "a screaming alto" with little depth in the high range. Sorry, Linda. But you know it.
Ella Fitzgerald Linda is not.
She also has a great technical knowledge of music theory if you poke around the net you will find her espousing on how she prefers to sing in a modified 6/8, etc.
- She is doing the right thing by retiring from the biz. Look at Grace Slick, she retired fron the biz before she turned forty.
- If they made a Linda biopic, should Linda be played by Selena Gomez or Leighton Meester?
- Linda is a great person by all accounts. A real gem. I was never a big fan of hers, as I too thought she pushed her voice too much however, she sort of missed her calling as a composer and arranger.
And she is not well, she suffers from an immunity problem so she cannot manage her weight like she would like to.
I wonder how her adopted kids are doing.
Long time rumor that Linda was/is gay---anyone know about this?
could explain the coke
- Linda pings to high heaven and I believe she has dated either Dolly Parton or Emmylou Harris, maybe both.
I'd put money on the Emmylou Harris affair, and the longshot dough on Dolly.
- I went to NY to see her in Penzance and she was sick. I saw the understudy.
- R84 eats feces right from the sidewalk.
- Linda cares about the average person, especially those she feels are exploited.
Linda actually worries about people who make minimum wage--she has stated her concerns about those who work in fast food restaurants.
Who else does this?
Does Beyonce talk about Jack-in-the-Box employees, how about Madonna? do you think she gives one shit?
Linda is a great salt-of-the-earth lady who cares deeply about the less fortunate. If you wish to label that as "liberal" so be it, but I'm sure Linda would call that as being decent.
Linda is a great American artist, and it must kill her to see what is happening in the music business.
- one of the most versatile and likable singers ever, she was just adorable and wasn't a p.r. seeker like so many today. She always rocked it in concert, too, her voice is so strong.
- What's that great story about Linda throwing a chicken finger or something at Carly Simon, who insulted her in an interview?
Maybe it was a fork.
- r26 That's my all time fav song of hers. Written by Karla Bonoff.
- About Linda Ronstadt's supposed "range" and "versatility"...well, the fact is that she's attempted a lot of different styles (standards, Mexican songs, New Wave) but was never particularly adept at any of them. She was good at interpreting some ballads and country songs, but not much else. Dave Marsh, in the good version of the Rolling Stone Record Guide, called Ronstadt a "horrid interpreter of...rock and soul material, frequently missing the essence...and never cutting below the surface."
She did so many lame remakes: "Crazy (Patsy Cline did it better)", "Tracks of my Tears (Smoky Robinson did it better)", "Heat Wave (Martha and the Vandellas did it SO much better", "That'll Be The Day (Buddy Holly did it better)", "Back in the U.S.A (Chuck Berry did it better."
Her version of "Tumblin' Dice" is particularly atrocious. She sounds ridiculous singing it. She and Mick Jagger were fuck buddies at one time, which I guess is why she attempted to do a Rolling Stones song. But it was a big mistake. It's one of her worst efforts.
When asked Elvis Costello claimed to hate Ronstadt's versions of "Girl Talk" and "Alison." He said they were awful, but if Ronstandt wanted to do them that was ok, because it meant more money in the bank for him.
Ronstadt was parodied on Saturday Night Live after putting out her album "What's New", an album of stadards. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss was Ronstadt, decked out in the pink number Ronstadt wore on the cover of the album. She sang "What's New" with new lyrics and the song ended aptly "I sing old songs for you...because I can't do...what's new!"
- I like so much of what she's done but my favorite CD of hers is the greatly underrated mad Love.
- [quote]She is doing the right thing by retiring from the biz. Look at Grace Slick, she retired fron the biz before she turned forty.
Actually she was 50 when she retired.
- All this "lacks depth, and range" coming from those who went on and ON about Whitney Houston being "the iconic voice of their generation"! Gag.
Why do people hate Linda's politics? I pay attention, and just assume she's a classic California lefty? Rock on!
From Classic Southern California pop/rock, to Americana, New Wave, Gilbert&Sullivan, Mexican folk songs, Big Band Standards, to Puccini, Linda Ronstadt is one of the rangiest and longest-lasting balladeers of the last 50 years. I think she's excellent!
- R114, she was 52 when she retired.
- she had fantastic range and emoted exquisitely and conveyed the meaning of the lyrics. Hardly anyone does that anymore, thanks to Star Search and Whitney, everyone oversings and does melisma, totally ignoring the mood and meaning the songwriter intended. Her version of "Tumblin' Dice" rocks, she's very powerful and energetic in it. The one person above has an issue with Linda and has been posting the same exact post since DL began. Get a new gig, please, you know nothing about music.
- I like her version of I will always love you better than Whitney's, it's understated and truer to the simple melody of the song.
- R118, I agree.
Her version of Desperado is better than the original.
- [quote]you know nothing about music
Says some decaying queen posting about Linda Fucking Rondstadt.
- From Mad Love - " Cost Of Love" . She's got that tough, angry girl sound on this song. Just pissed.
- Such a beautiful woman
- The First Cut is the Deepest
- If I stayed thin, you can too Linda.
- Go to hell, Olivia.
- I imagine that with WHitney and Donna gone, she's getting nervous about being number 3.
- Long, Long Time still sends shivers up my spine. Pure magic.
- Mendocino - beautiful!
- What she really means is...
I tried for 30 years to have a hit and failed. I give up.
- I hardly think it's about hits. I really admire Linda for retiring. So many singers go on way longer than they should, their voices gone long ao. They keep pumping the nostalgia audiences who only wind up feeling sad and sorry for them. Linda's going out with her dignity in tact. I think she's magnicent.
- I imagine Joni has retired now too - no more tours or albums, just a cranky interview now and then ... they they both (Joni, Linda) have enough to retire on, ditty Carly. Carole King seems determined to continue though, surely she is the richest of them all ?
- It must be great not have to bother to sing the old hits over and over for nostalgia audiences - or to have to keep touring to smaller venues in out of the way places when you just want to releax at home.
I saw Dionne and Petula Clark touring a few years ago ...
- The Ronstadt fangurls on this thread are hilarious. They wouldn't know a good interpretation of a song if it bit them on their rumps.
I doubt if they've ever heard of a singer named Eva Cassidy. She died tragically quite young of cancer and she was brilliant. She could do just about any type of singing (pop, jazz, country, gospel, standards) and do it do it with complete authenticity. She could wipe up the floor with Linda Ronstadt vocally. Ronstadt's voice was "pretty" but that's all it was. She had no depth as a singer at all.
- Eva Cassidy? The "Locomotion" gal? She was a babysitter for Carole King and David Geffen.
True, R133 -- what pipes!
- Linda was at the peak of her beauty in the late '60s. She could still look great for her age if she'd lose the weight.
- She had lots of depth and if this Eva person were so great, I'm sure we would've heard of her. Linda is a very intelligent woman and always got to the essence of the song, whatever the songwriter intended. She also had power, range, control and versatility, few singers have recorded as many styles as she has.
- Eva Cassidy (NOT Little Eva) is a cult favorite among lesbians and NPR listeners. She was a cover singer who had a pretty little voice but is mostly famous for having died young.
- R3...right back at ya, you anorexic bitch! Still fucking your son, btw?
- I'm sure you're right, R136. How could she possibly be talented if you don't know about her?
- Eva Cassidy??? LOL!!! She reminds me of the star of all our old High School musicals. Wet, hammy, overwrought, tedious, and pretentious.
- [quote]Wet, hammy, overwrought, tedious, and pretentious.
Judy Garland maybe. Not Eva Cassidy.
- Eva Cassidy is one of the most overrated singers, ever. She is the Jonathan Larson of song - noted mostly for dropping dead at a tres tragique moment.
- Not sure dying from a melanoma that metastasized into the lungs and liver would be considered dropping dead.
- R141= deaf.
- "Eva Cassidy is one of the most overrated singers, ever."
No, she's not. I've listened to her songs. Her voice was incredible. Her version of "Over the Rainbow" is better than Judy Garland's.
- If she was smart she would have turned it into a six year tour.
- [quote]She had lots of depth and if this Eva person were so great, I'm sure we would've heard of her.
Don't go flinging "we" around, your Majesty. Some of us are not as ignorant as you.
- Thanks for that r83. I get that Elvis C probably cringed at her doing his songs cause ya know Linda wasn't really cool compared to all the New Wavers. But a woman doing that song in the way Linda did it was inspired and dramatic. Gave a whole new edge to the song. Peter Asher is/was a brilliant producer with her as his muse. One of those magic pairings in entertainment.
I do like her version of Allison too and love the production of it, that sax at the end, excellent.
- Her best stuff is country no doubt. Heart Like A Wheel her best over all album but I love cuts like "When I Grow Too Old To Dream" on the Livin In the USA album. I think that is my favorite non country flavored song. Just beautiful. Also the stuff she did with Dolly and Emmylou Harris.
- Y'all, where I grew up, back in the good ole Smokey Mountains, we had an expression for folks like Linda: "What a cunt!"
- R148 has the worst taste ever.
- 151...no darling. You do.
"Her version of "Over the Rainbow" is better than Judy Garland's."
Says the tone deaf lesbian. honestly, this Cassidy nut is hysterically funny. She's no better than a million chick singers in cheap coffee houses in every university town.
- "Says the tone deaf lesbian. honestly, this Cassidy nut is hysterically funny. She's no better than a million chick singers in cheap coffee houses in every university town.'
You are obviously a retard. You need to shut up. All you're doing is embarrassing yourself. Your stupidity is painful to behold, you pitiful twat.
- I think people who judge people by their appearance are sad, emotionally insecure, ingorant pigs. So much hatred. She gained weight due to a medical issue and too much coke when she was young (screws up your metabolism).
SO WHAT???? SHE'S OVERWEIGHT - THAT ALL YOU GOT?
Sure you people are so beautiful? I doubt it. And even if you were, you are very ugly where it counts. In your soul. Linda was a great singer, not a two bit wonder - very well known and it saddens me to see what society has become. Haters.
- "Heart Like A Wheel" Linda's autobiography is out next year.
- I would still MARRY her...and drink her bath water.
But, only if she loses about 150 POUNDS .
- I put mayonnaise on everything.
- Her albums of standards with Nelson Riddle are almost perfection. I've lost track of how many times I've listened to them.
- R158: I think those albums have proved to be one of the most reliable sources of irritation to singers who always sing standards ever dreamed up.
- Linda's autobiography (Simple Dreams) is due to be released in September.
And it's rumored that there will be an audio version read by Linda.)
- Good for her. So many singers lose their voice and nevertheless go on and on and on. She's smart to hang it up now. (I don't know how she sounds, but assume that she's the best judge of her powers.)
- I don't wanna judge Linda Ronstadt. But it's sad that her weight problem has apparently been impossible to manage. Then again, maybe she just doesn't see the importance in holding down the weight for a career since she quit.
She claimed she didn't have the power any more. As a rock singer myself, I know you need a lot of stamina that can easily come from a 65 year old that works out and keeps the right diet. Most people sit around on their behinds. Pills don't make a person strong. So it's gotta be the exercise. Too bad Linda doesn't see herself the way others do. I think she could still do it. And I wish she would go back to her late 70s early 80s style music.
- Ann Wilson of Heart still tours and all. Her voice aged really well.
I think that Linda just basically wants to retire. She probably has scads of money at this point. Is her book out yet?
- 2 years later and still NOBODY cares.
- Her autobiography comes out next month. Let's hope it's better than that snoozefest the Wilson sisters put out.
- I've stayed thin AND am curing cancer!
Olivia posting from the Olivia newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center.
- [R133], I think you meant to type Nancy LaMott.
- Why haven't more singers done "Talk to Me of Mendocino"?
- She recorded "Long, Long Time" soon after I broke-up with my partner of six years. Had song to listen to.
