Hall of Fame Essay

2014

John Rockwell

Nearly twenty years after she became eligible, Linda Ronstadt was finally nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, of course, was elected on the first ballot.

Linda herself (I call her Linda because we’ve been friends for nearly forty years) has never been much for awards ceremonies - Hall of Fame, Grammys, whatever.

“I don’t want to seem ungracious,” she told me, graciously. “But I’ve refused all comment about this.” One tricky aspect of her relation to the Hall of Fame is that Linda (b. July 15,1946) has long since gone beyond rock in her madly diverse musical career.
