    [h=1]Linda Ronstadt tells AARP she has Parkinson's, says she can't sing[/h] Published August 24, 2013

    LOS ANGELES – Linda Ronstadt says she suffers from Parkinson's disease, which has robbed her ability to sing.
    The 67-year-old music legend tells AARP Magazine, in an article posted online Friday, that she was diagnosed eight months ago and "can't sing a note."
    Ronstadt says she began to show symptoms as long as eight years ago, but attributed her inability to sing then to a tick disease. When her hands began to tremble, Ronstadt said she thought the shaking was the result of a shoulder operation.
    She said she was "completely shocked" when she finally saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. "I wouldn't have suspected that in a million, billion years.
    "No one can sing with Parkinson's disease," Ronstadt told AARP music writer Alanna Nash. "No matter how hard you try."
    Ronstadt sold tens of millions of records starting in the 1970s with pop hits like "You're No Good" and "When Will I Be Loved." But she also segued into country, pop standards and mariachi music, among other genres.
    In addition, the singer was known for her romances with California Gov. Jerry Brown and filmmaker George Lucas.
    Ronstadt now uses poles to walk on uneven ground and a wheelchair when traveling, the AARP story said.
    Her autobiography will be released next month, but makes no mention of Parkinson's or the loss of her voice, according to AARP.
    The singer's New York-based managers did not immediately respond to requests from The Associated Press for comment.

    Sad. She was so talented.

    On another note slap a beanie on her and she looks like a grown up Meg Griffin from Family Guy.

    She was hot when she was younger.

    I even heard that George Lucas was shooting his proton torpedoes into her exhaust port once upon a time in a galaxy not too far away?

    My Dad had Parkinson's...sadly he died from it. Terrible disease that slowly robs you of everything. I,for one, am sorry to hear about Ronstadt's diagnosis. I know she has kids so it must be hard for them. She had a great run back in the late 60's, 70's and 80's...she pretty much dominated the charts for awhile.

    Robin vs Ronstadt and possibly the origin of Howard's Jay Leno animus:

    I recall Quivers repeatedly mocking Ronstadt's weight, funny considering Miserable Cunt was her standard obese self at the time.

    Ironic, true.
    This rant by Howard goes on for something 7 or 8 nine minutes plus segments.
    The golden era of The Howard Stern Show when he didn't give a shit about celebrities taking umbrage.
