Linda Ronstadt Can No Longer Sing Due To Disease

(Classic Rock) Linda Ronstadt is suffering from Parkinson's Disease, she's revealed and it's robbed her of her singing voice. The veteran artist, 67, has confirmed long-repeated rumours within the music industry and admitted she'll never be able to sing again.

She first thought the problem arose as a result of a tick bite, but was later diagnosed with the degenerative disorder and she suspects she's had it for several years.

"I can't sing a note," Ronstadt tells AARP. "I couldn't sing and I couldn't figure out why. I knew it had to do with the muscles but I thought it might have also had something to do with the tick disease I had. Then I had a shoulder operation so I thought that's why my hands were trembling.

"Parkinson's is very hard to diagnose, so when a neurologist said, 'Oh, you have Parkinson's,' I was completely shocked. I think I've had it for seven or eight years already because of the symptoms I've had." more on this story
