Linda Ronstadt had quit performing because of her Parkinson’s disease, which made singing impossible for her. Last fall she spoke to the sellout crowd at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles who came to meet her and talk to her about her life. She exchanged her experiences and views. She said and expressed her feeling to the crowd that they were the ones who made the song such a hit but then she had to sing that song over and over again till the time it sounded like a washing machine. The crowd wanted to know her tales of life and career, as when she toured for four months as the opening act of the Doors. She told that it was pretty tough to play with the doors and it was more like a double bill of Bambi and Deep Throat. It has now been ten years she has been on a break, one of the most highly paid rock and roll music genre singer. However, due to her disease, her music career ended up, and she did her last concert in 2013. She was excellent and had earned 10 Grammy awards.
A new documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, which is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman looks back upon her music career. It would be opening on September 06, and she also spoke with The New Yorker twice on the telephone, and the conversation they had was a mirror to what she has been doing in the recent years so far.
She said that she started feeling something wrong with her voice since 2000, but no one would pay attention to it. She felt that like a cramp, and her voice would freeze, which was a very disorienting thing for her. She carried on playing until the year 2013 when the disease took away her voice from her.
