Linda Ronstadt was 21 when she had her first hit record with a band known as the Stone Poneys (yes, misspelled correctly!) way back in 1967.  That hit song “Different Drum” was actually written by none other Mike Nesmith an aspiring songwriter who found fame as a member of the pop rock TV band The Monkees. 

For decades, Ronstadt continued to top the charts until the early 2000’s when she felt her singing voice deteriorating. Linda would perform her last live concert in 2009 and announced her retirement in 2011 due to a degenerative disease known as Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.  Still today her recordings continue to inspire a new generation of performers keyed into her style.
