There are obviously many more serious and tragic things happening in this world, but the news that Linda Ronstadt has lost her singing voice to Parkinson’s is nonetheless truly sad.
The best singers, when they’re on, express themselves in ways no one else can replicate. Ronstadt’s performances made her one of those best singers (oh, how it hurts to use the past tense here).
UPDATE: Encore —
UPDATE 2: This is a sick joke — Ronstadt is NOT in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
