On March 6, they’ve scored a coup with Linda Ronstadt speaking about living with Parkinson’s Disease. Linda Ronstadt’s voice was one of music’s great treasures, anchoring hits like “When Will I Be Loved” and “You’re No Good” and crossing genres. With more than 50 million albums sold worldwide and more than 30 Gold and Platinum records, 10 Grammy Awards and membership in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Ronstadt is a consummate American artist. Sadly, Parkinson’s Disease has silenced her singing voice, which inspired her to write the memoir Simple Dreams and embark on a mission to raise awareness of the debilitating disease. Like her memoir, the evening will be full of captivating stories from this remarkable and courageous woman who helped define the music that dominated the American 1970s.
