We all get older.We all change physically ,but it is the same person in that older body.I would love to look like I was 30-40 years ago but I and my friends and family can look back and see in old photos.It is what is in your body that counts ................not on the outside. smoking smiley

And.......

Of course the man who got both Ronstadt and Nicks ROCKIN' in the studio and on tour was the incredible Waddy Wachtel. Both Linda and Stevie give him credit for that.

Keith said:

"So I started to put a band together... Steve (Jordan) looks at me and says, Who do you want to play with? I said, Guitar? Waddy Wachtel. And he goes to me, My very words. I'd known Waddy since the middle 70s, and I've always liked his stuff. But I always recognized him as a man left alone out there running a chick's band. And I knew this man wants to rock more desperately than he's allowed to. (Laughs.) He's doing Linda Ronstadt, then he's doing Stevie Nicks, and I know my man wants to rock. Waddy and I have always had that empathy, and he understands my music. I don't have to explain anything to Waddy. I say, It goes like this, and everybody else would say, Well, that's weird. But Waddy goes, Oh, that's interesting." -Keith Richards, 1992

As for a suggestion for one of Linda's albums...... definitely get one with Waddy on it. He's fantastic on both electric and acoustic guitar.
Check out more info (with some audio and video) on the Ronstadt pages at Waddy's web site:

I'm not trying to pile onto her, but it looks like maybe she hasn't been too kind to herself. Taking care of yourself goes a long way towards reducing the effects of aging. Look at the picture, she's not really ugly, her hair looks fine, her skin looks nice, I don't know if she has had any "work" done, but her face isn't overly wrinkled. She's just fat, and unless that is due to some health issue she can't control, she did that to herself, not the ravages of time.

all - she's also had serious thyroid issues - an undisclosed (major) surgery a few years ago that some think may have been cancer related - come on - show a little class

OK, so Hasten Down The Wind, Prisoner In Disguise and Simple Dreams arrived from Amazon on Friday. The latter mentioned probably edges it as my favourite – though I’ll admit: none of them match Heart Like A Wheel.

This song and performance is scintillatingly beautiful.

Heart Like A Wheel has an edge to it that perhaps is down to its superb choice of material like You're No Good, Willin', When Will I Be Loved and the McGarrigles great title track . I only really know that, Simple Dreams and her greatest hits. Maybe the others are slow burners.

Exactly - thyroid problems are hormon related and can completely ruin your metabolism and therefore also your weight control.
To the ones, that don't have the problem - be happy.

OK, so Don't Cry Now arrived yesterday from Amazon. I haven't given it a full listen as of yet, but it sounds like another fine LP, full of finely penned ballads and yearning, heartfelt vocalising from the goddess that was the 1970's Linda Ronstadt.

'Her album with Dolly and Emmy was very, very good'. gmanp

True that. It was called 'Trio'. Her forays into Big Band music wasn't all that great when you hear the real Big Band Singers like Anita O'Day. After you've absorbed her earlier, country-rock hits, you might try 'Canciones de mi Padre', a great Spanish language collection that I saw performed live in the early 90s.

Well, she did cover the Stones' "Tumbling Dice," available on her 1977 album, Simple Dreams. In a July 21, 1978 performance, Ronstadt actually joined the Stones onstage for this song.

Mick Jagger was actually quite enamored with Ronstadt's version of his band's tune, and even encouraged her to start singing more rock-oriented songs.

Can't say that I blame him ...........

Great find Title!
Love this woman. If it wasn't for Linda, I wouldn't be a Stones fan.


In the Warhol Diaries, he mentions that Bianca accused Mick of having an affair....but I doubt it, not because of Mick, but Linda.
I remember reading a People magazine article on Bianca from 77 and Linda and Bianca were actually friends. They lived next to each other in Malibu in the late 70s and Bianca expressed her fondness for Linda, the article says they were often seen walking on the beach together....I'm sure Mick tried his best, but I always suspected Linda was too intelligent, together and proper for Mick to have a fling with. SHe had morals and genuinely respected Mick as an artist....and Mick, I imagine, probably didn't know what to do with that because she was gorgeous.

My sister had all her records in the late 70s and Linda was hugely popular then. I became a fan and wanted to read all about her, loved the fact that seemed earthy. I read an article where she talked about how she was "most fond of Mick's ballad singing"...and that was the catalyst. I was curious because of Tumbling Dice and her association with the Stones....and Boom, the Stones came into my life.
But Linda led me there.
Her version of "I Will Never Marry" with Dolly on Simple Dreams is fantastic.
And for those who mentioning Celine Dion or Helen Reddy......
don't be stupid.

Seems almost as if the lovely Linda is more admired for being a woman than a musician at this point ... correct me if I'm wrong ...

I don't think she ever made a real live album.
Why? What a set of pipes on her.

No, those of us who grew up with her simply have fond memories of her as a very earthy, sexy person as well. Her voice remains one of the greatest instruments in rock and roll. BTW, I didn't find out until years later that it was Linda backing up Neil Young on all those great early songs.

This song, and Waddy's guitar, was my segue into Stonesyness.

I don't think she ever did, either. However, there are several good soundboards out there on the download sites -- definitely some great stuff.

Really liked her back in the day. Here's my favorite...

Her "Western Wall - The Tucson Sessions" album with Emmylou is really good.

This is a cover of Springsteen's "Across The Border" - with Neil Young on harmonica and backing vocals.





Also features a fine version of Jackson Browne's "For A Dancer" (again with Neil Young)





Live version :

I like her version of "You're No Good", more in the rock/blues vein.

That's a great one! One of the best things she did was introduce and promote people like Lowell George, Warren Zevon and Emmylou to a more mainstraim audience. I first heard of Little Feat through her, and later found out the group was a favorite of Jagger's. I loved her version of Allison when Elvis Costello was just some nerdy-looking guy I saw in the Random Notes section in Rolling Stone magazing.

She was quite the looker back then...even though she has gained a few pounds, she's still pretty.

I wholeheartedly agree with the first part of your statement. The second part, ummm, no. In fact, Linda is a perfect example of what happens to 90% of nice-looking American girls. (Glad I never married one!!)

Then..

This song is superb, but was sadly left off the Capitol Years collection. Does anyone know where I can track down an MP3?

She's A Very Lovely Woman

That's a wonderful rendition of Just One Look. Ronstadt is a one-off, IMO. Simply fantastic
