Rock Legend Linda Ronstadt Makes History Without Even Being In Attendance

Linda Ronstadt’s absence from her own Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony leads to a poignant music moment.

Who doesn’t love the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony? When I flipped on my TV and saw that none other than Linda Ronstadt was being honored this year, I committed to a Saturday night in to watch the whole party.

And then she didn’t show. I already knew she was ill, but I had hopes.

Rondstadt’s brave memoir last year dug in deep to explain why she’s been out of the spotlight for so long. And sadly, it also revealed that she has Parkinson’s, which has rendered her unable to sing. She gave a moving interview to Terry Gross for her NPR show, Fresh Air. I was ecstatic just to hear her voice!

So she wasn’t able to make her own induction. No matter—music’s bigwigs weren’t going to stop until they had planned the ultimate A-list ensemble to do her songs justice. The result was a rousing tribute that spanned generations for a special musical moment.

Glenn Frey, one of the superstar members of the rock band The Eagles, who was also once in Rondstadt’s band, was there and gave a moving speech before joining in the musical montage at the end.

The women who gave homage kicked off with the youngin’ Carrie Underwood, with her stunning blond extensions, glittery makeup and still-in-her-prime voice. She sang Ronstadt’s early hit “Different Drum.” Then two of my favorites, Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris joined in for “Blue Bayou.” Finishing off the A-team: A stunning Sheryl Crow and groovy Stevie Nicks, for some of my favorites. It was too easy to get up and dance, as much of the audience did. “It’s So Easy To Fall In Love,” “When Will I Be Loved” and “You’re No Good.”

It was simply a monumental musical moment! Now that’s a tribute fitting for the great Linda Ronstadt.
