Singing silenced, Ronstadt elected to Hall of Fame

Just months after she told the world that her renowned singing voice has been silenced by Parkinson's disease, Tucson native Linda Ronstadt has been elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although Ronstadt has been eligible since 1992, she recently said she never considered herself a rock singer and didn't give much thought to ever be so honored.

When I think of her I always remember her on the Mr. Plow episode of The Simpsons where she appeared in a commercial for the Plow King Barney Gumble.

A classic, Bret.

I’ve had “Desperado” in my head all day (it’s one hell of an earworm), but for my money her work with Neil Young ranks as some of her best, singing backup on “Heart of Gold” and “Old Man” along with James Taylor.
