Eleven-time Grammy Award-winner Linda Ronstadt discusses Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir with The Arizona Republic's Ed Masley.
Born into a musical Tucson family, Ronstadt and her siblings performed their own music at an early age. Ronstadt arrived in Los Angeles in the mid-'60s, just as the folk rock and country rock movements were beginning to bloom. As part of the coterie of like-minded artists who played at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, she helped define the musical style that dominated American music in the '70s. In Simple Dreams
, Ronstadt reveals the journey that led to her long-lasting success, including stories behind many of her beloved songs. EVENT DETAILS
