In this memoir, iconic singer linda ronstadt weaves together a captivating story of her origins in Tucson, Arizona, and her rise to stardom in the Southern California music scene of the 1960s and ‘70s.

Tracing the timeline of her remarkable life, whose forty-five year career has encompassed a wide array of musical styles, Linda Ronstadt, weaves together a captivating story of her origins in Tucson, Arizona, and her rise to stardom in the Southern California music scene of the 1960s and ‘70s.

And she describes it all in a voice as beautiful as the one that sang “Heart Like a Wheel”—longing, graceful, and authentic. Now, in this beautifully crafted memoir, Ronstadt tells the story of her wide-ranging and utterly unique musical journey.

Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir #ad - Ronstadt arrived in los angeles just as the folkrock movement was beginning to bloom, setting the stage for the development of country-rock. Her artistic curiosity blossomed early, and she and her siblings began performing their own music for anyone who would listen. As part of the coterie of like-minded artists who played at the famed Troubadour club in West Hollywood, she helped define the musical style that dominated American music in the 1970s.
