Happy Birthday Linda Ronstadt

After fronting The Stone Poneys on 1968's "Different Drum," the Tucson, Arizona native hit big with country-rock renditions of Betty Everett's "You're No Good," the Everly Brothers' "When Will I Be Loved" and Martha and the Vandellas' "Heat Wave." She then turned her attention to Broadway theater in The Pirates of Penzance and crooned '40s standards with arranger-conductor Nelson Riddle. She returned to the pop mainstream in '87, teaming with James Ingram for "Somewhere Out There" (from An American Tale). It reached number-two, as did the Grammy-winning duet "Don't Know Much" with Aaron Neville.
