Linda Ronstadt Part Seven
Here’s another fantastic blog called Linda Ronstadt Part Seven, please enjoy.
Highest-Paid Woman in Rock
Rock is the thumping heart of Linda‘s music, and the rock world is dominated by males. The biggest stars are male, and so are the back-up musicians … rock beatsare … phallic, and lyrics … masculine. … Janis Joplin, the first great white woman rocker, rattled the bars … but she died. … Joni Mitchell … stylish(but can’t) compete in drawing power with men … (however) Linda Ronstadt … has made herself one of the biggest individual rock draws in the world.
