As far as singers go, few compare with Linda Ronstadt. The epitome of musical versatility, she started as a country singer, before effortlessly weaving her way through rock, pop, folk, jazz, r&b, Mexican bluegrass, and opera.
In the 1970’s, she – along with her contemporaries Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, and Carly Simon – revolutionized & re-invented the role of women in music. Through music, fashion, and politics, she helped initiate a culture shift that started on Santa Monica Blvd and eventually spread all over the world. Along the way she acquired the moniker “The First Lady Of Rock” for her dominance on the Billboard charts. Grammys, Oscars & Emmys followed, and in 2022 she was inductee in The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Here on Los Angeles Rock Tours you’ll see where she was discovered, where recorded her albums, and where she lived the life as one of the most successful musicians of all-time.
