It’s hard for me to believe that Linda Ronstadt has never been on the ballot for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame until now but that is the case. The nominees were announced this week.
Maybe 2014 will finally be Ronstadt’s year. I’ve written about all this before—probably a couple times. How can someone with all that talent never be nominated? In that article that I linked to, it states that Ronstadt may be the sentimental favorite because she now has Parkinson’s disease.
I hate that word. Sentimental. Ronstadt deserves to be in the Hall of Fame because of the work she has done and not because she’s now sick. That may be why she got on the ballot for the first time. I hate this kind of crap and I bet you she does too. Still, I want her to get in.
I’ve posted this video of Ronstadt singing “Blue Bayou” before but I’m posting it again for my own enjoyment and maybe yours too. She’ll always be one of my favorites.
