Linda Ronstadt Among Artists Selected for 2014 Rock Hall of Fame Inductees
Joining Linda will be Nirvana, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens and Bruce Springsteen’s The E Street Band.
Linda Ronstadt has been named as one of the elite artists who will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year.
The 2014 class will be inducted on April 10 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Joining Linda is an impressive group of performers that includes Nirvana, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens and Bruce Springsteen’s The E Street Band
This latest achievement for Linda comes the same year that she published her autobiography, Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir.
“I always thought I couldn’t sing very well,” a humble Linda recently told Billboard. “I was always very frustrated by it, and I was always sorta disappointed by it. Everything I did always fell short of my expectations. I wasn’t very good when I started, but the good news is I got better. I didn’t become the greatest singer in all of pop music, but I became, at least for my time, the most diverse. I wish it had all been better, but it wasn’t. It’s what it was, and I got to make it better later. I wish the records had been better, but they were as good as I could do at the time.”
Tickets for the Rock Hall of Fame induction will go on sale to the public in January. Members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will have an early jump on scoring tickets starting at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31. For more information, visit rockhall.com.
