NEW YORK (AP) - [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Linda Ronstadt[/lastfm] broke barriers for women as one of the top-selling artists of her generation. Now she’s going to tell us how she did it and more. She’s writing a memoir called “Heart Like a Wheel.” That, of course, is the title of her Grammy-winning, multiplatinum album.
In a statement, Simon and Schuster says: “Few singers have been as wide-ranging or distinctive in their artistry.” Ronstadt sold tens of millions of records starting in the 1970s with pop hits like “You’re No Good” and “When Will I Be Loved.” She also went country. And sang pop standards and mariachi music. Linda Ronstadt’s memoir is expected in stores in 2013.
