Linda Ronstadt Autobiography Set For September Release

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on June 17, 2013

in News

Linda Rondstadt’s memoir, Simple Dreams, will be released on September 17 via Simon and Schuster.

The book will tell Linda’s story from her childhood in Tuscon through her rise to stardom in the 60’s and 70’s singing folk-rock and covering numerous treasured oldies, into the 80’s and 90’s with her performances of Gilbert and Sullivan, pop music classics and Mexican folk music, and up to her retirement in 2009.

Over that time, Ronstadt had nine top ten hits, including You’re No Good, Blue Bayou, When Will I Be Loved and Don’t Know Much (with Aaron Neville), nine top ten studio albums and won eleven Grammy Awards in categories as far reaching as country (1975, I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love With You), Mexican-American (1993, Mas Canciones), pop vocal (1989, Don’t Know Much), tropical Latin (1992, Frenesi) and children’s album (1996, Dedicated to the One I Love).

The book will be released in hardback, ebook and audio book read by Ronstadt.

According to the press release:

In Simple Dreams, Ronstadt reveals the eclectic and fascinating journey that led to her long-lasting success. And she describes it all in a voice as beautiful as the one that sang “Heart Like a Wheel”—longing, graceful, and authentic.
