Linda Ronstadt

There have been times when I've prayed for a bus to hit me so I'd have an excuse not to perform.

Linda Ronstadt has won 10 Grammys and an Emmy.  She has released over 30 solo albums, 10 of which were Billboard top 10 albums and 3 of which reached #1.  Ronstadt has successfully recorded pop, rock, jazz, country, Gilbert and Sullivan, and Mexican folk music -- her musical collaborators have included Billy Eckstine, Rosemary Clooney, the Chieftains, Dolly Parton, and Frank Zappa.  No one could deny that she has a truly extraordinary voice -- one critic said she has "the most sterling set of pipes of her generation."  Yet she suffers from stage fright.  (Go figure.)
