"When you Linda Ronstadt is one of this country's musical musical legends from rock to Country Rhythm and blues. She's sword with her unique voice and presence. I spoke with a recently the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington about her beginnings beginnings or self confidence or lack of times in the incredible arc of her career. It's all part of the news. CNN Film Linda Ronstadt the sound of my voice. I hadn't realized is how early you started singing. It seems like music from their earliest memories. Were were song when it was on the panel when you were to. Yeah it's called tweet tweet tweet. It was about bird. Did you ever plan on becoming a superstar. Or what is it about that. I thought I wanted to sing and I thought it would be nice if I could make my living singing. Hadn't been paying the rent and groceries. Wouldn't have to go work in a bank or something else but And I always managed to do that. I never had to get a different job but you know when I was getting paid thirty dollars a week to to sing. I thought I was doing fine. I thought that was really success. what did you feel when you were singing and especially early on. I just felt like I wanted to make myself feel like music that I'd liked made me feel you know I'd hear your love. It the non or no Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald and I go on and do that on a feel that way. The act of singing was it was the joyful. Well it was something because people used to turn around on night saying you know in school. You're supposed to pretend thing you kind of all but I was going. Let's sing. Can you know because my family saying so I stay with my older brother who is in the Tucson Arizona Boys Choir at one of the Solos and he was wonderful and he taught you about Brdo and yeah he did and and we learned harmonies. We just didn't have to be taught them. We just knew how to sing harmony. We used to sing in the back of the car. We sing with our hands in the dishwater. I think everybody should do their own singing. You don't have to be a professional. You don't have to delegate your sorrows to professional delegates for privacy you know some of these thing in your bedroom in some music is something you play the piano. Maybe just a select group of friends. Not Everything has spent the big world where you confident as a singer. Did you know how good you you were. I never thought it was good. I always thought I might get a little bit tomorrow but I always felt that my phrasing was kind of hopeless in the in the documentary. It somebody says about you that when you would be on on stage if you saw people in the front row to people are whispering to each other that you assumed they were saying bad things. Can't they really felt that. Even I mean you're on a stage in front of thousands of people minds go see you don't see the audience very much let but you are so you can pretend you're all all by yourself. That's what I see the audience I go. Why are all those people staring at me because in the animal kingdom when some another animal staring at you they probably you hostile gesture? Yeah Yeah it's just deep deep rooted in Instinct you know. was there ever a point where you were satisfied with it with the quality of it in the nineties. I Sang Hang better than I sang in the eighties in the eighties and seventies up so the only thing. It's always a work in progress. It's it's very weird here recording. Because it's frozen in time and when you gawk saying it better in Jacksonville Florida and nineteen seventy eight. You know you remember the moment that you really achieve something. But it's not the whole song been it's just a phrase or a note you ego all that that was the gold standard so it's just a little a little piece of of a song that you feel okay that that meets my standards records like Oh that phrase was is is that measure was nice. That's Aung sucked. You know that. That's improves I ever good thing my whole life anyway songwriter. But you pick songs and you made them your own and I mean you in such an extraordinary way. How do you know what songs to? It seems like a number of them. You you heard on a radio or you heard somewhere. Well here's something and I would speak to me urgently. That was like something I'd felt in my life. So it was only a phrase you know and I have to figure out how it would make the rest of the song fit and sometimes was not musically terribly well suited to my style but after bank it that way as I said a remarkable artists and a remarkable career. Here's a quick preview of that scene and films documentary. Linda Ronstadt the sound of.

"Big record for Linda Ronstadt at the end of the eighties and joining with era Nevil for when something's wrong with My Baby co written by Isaac Hayes and Dave Porter Sam and Dave original. the song book on W. NYC. now by the time Linda Ronstadt or Isaac or Sam today for anybody had settled into their careers the notion of pop stardom was a given that you had a hit record you were now a pop star but when the swing era was developing that wasn't necessarily the case the Benny Goodman orchestra was a sensation and the swing era was the first pop music movement that was specifically connected to a electronic media radio and records made it happen and Benny Goodman was as unlikely a hero as you could imagine there was a slight from **** or nerdy Mister Benny with his granny glasses and his demeanor. but you know they were screaming teenagers that followed him around because this was the new lay of the land pop culture music is pop culture along comes Artie Shaw very different stories a strikingly handsome man with charisma and he would be built up into one of the first pop idols of this time. and he would be drag quick kicking and screaming through that process to a point where we actually kind of turned his back on at all but boy did he have it all going on circa nineteen thirty nine nineteen forty. the record you're about to hear was made in New York City when he took his his new bride Lana Turner. to New York for what would amount to her first visit. the great opening figure that you'll hear played on trumpet. is Mister Butterfield. and it was written out by a party and there was a lot of thought given to the arrangement and this is the beginning of a whole new chapter of his career and a whole new kind of pop music created by a guy who was an established superstar. right at the cusp of turning is back on at all the vehicle Hoagy Carmichael in Mitchell parishes Stardust..

"Linda Ronstadt reported in nineteen sixty seven of big hit for her different from her first big hit. Did you believe in the lyric Eric about not wanting to be tied down monogamous like did that describe you. Well yeah okay. Yes it did yes. It does never been married right known act for it. You know I think that the culture support serial monogamy and I think I had plenty of that and I think think it was reasonably monogamous in a serial way but I'm not a good compromiser. I think I don't have a knack for kind of compromise. I admire people's marriages and I think it's a wonderful thing to have but I don't think it's the only way to live. I think there are many ways to live in many ways to establish intimate support in your life that can be from family family or friends or a great room that you like. You know. It doesn't have to be someone you're sleeping with. I figured that out pretty early on and that was sort of how I felt. I was trying to sing Singh. I was never trying to get married. You write in the book about how to how you had to figure out your image. Andy Reid female performers in the folk pop genre would generally confused about how to represent themselves. Did we WANNA be nurturing. Stay at home. Earth mothers cooked nurse babies or did we want to be funky. Mama's and the Troubadour bar our boot heels to be wandering an independent course like our male counterparts. So where did you see yourself fitting in between like the Funky Mama and the Earth Mama well. I didn't didn't really fit in I was raised to you know where hat and gloves and Polish the silver and just wasn't the way I was raised so I I was a little bit confused used by it. I remember the rumor about Janice. Joplin was and I don't know if you've heard this because you're in the music industry is so and you actually knew her but but I knew a little bit right but at a distance all her fans were preparing for the concert you know in the college auditorium the rumor that went around was like Janice Joplin got so deep into the sexuality of her songs that she actually reached orgasm on stage now my God well I got doubted felt that was true but I've never personally had that experience myself but I assumed that but did you ever feel like you had to compete with that kind of image and and that that kind of like level of sexuality that people projected onto her no. I think competition is for Horse Races and I never thought it belonged in art and I never felt competitive with other girl singers really I admired them. If I really admired the my traffic away if it was appropriate to figure out a way to sing with them you know I liked Maria Mall Dr when I first I started out now. There was somebody that was really sexy. onstage and in fact Janice just admired her to she loved her and I got to sing Marie a little bit. It was really finally disarmed us together but mainly when I met ran into Emmylou Harris that was it you know we could finish each other's sentences musically and and personally to we had a very very shared similar sensibility and that was a friendship that really opened up tremendous a number of musical doors for me. You have a few stories in your new memoir more about being propositioned by men who assumed hey it's a hippy chick singer free love for example the time when producer of a TV show that you were doing and you were a guest on the show he came into your room on the premise that you had to talk about business and immediately like stripped off all his clothes. I was so shocked because I'm really Kinda the modest you know I have a Catholic school upbringing in we just didn't see a lot of naked bodies and in this guy I'm telling you was not the Alanis of Showbiz. He was kind of there was something really kind of exhibition stick and self hating about what he was doing. I felt sorry for him. I mean it was clearly he was so troubled but you know he was had the the power and I didn't have any and so I just kind of edged the door niche to the door and and I just went out the door you know and I didn't come back for a couple of hours. I went and sat in the lobby and and I was so bored. You know so mad down. There is any lobby but I wanted to go to bed but I was just afraid to go back to my room and in those days you know when you were Kinda low man on the pecking order or low woman pick you order it endurable and complain. I call my manager and he said don't say anything because you know they might take you up the show and we need the show. Oh we're listening back to my twenty thirteen interview with Linda Ronstadt a new documentary about her called Linda Ronstadt the sound of my voice open today we'll hear more of the interview after a break and John Powers will review the new film hustlers. I'm Terry Gross and this is fresh air support for this podcast comes from Hbo Limited Series Our boys the gripping true story of the tragic events that led to war in Gaza in two thousand fourteen Israel is shaken when three three Jewish teenagers are murdered by Hamas militants when a Palestinian boy goes missing tensions escalate into violence our boys follows the riveting investigation Gatien and reveals how the Jewish and Arab communities were forever transformed based on actual events watch our boys Mondays at nine pm only on on Hbo. Let's get back to my twenty thirteen interview with Linda Ronstadt a new documentary about her opened in theaters today nine hundred seventy one you perform at Disneyland and the contract stipulated that you had to wear a bra and skirt had to be a certain number of interest from the ground when you were kneeling which led me to wonders you have they seen the your skirt had to be long enough heavy senior actor known that well sometimes you don't wear a bra and that you kneel in your show. No they just that was just the rules that you and I I was laughing. I was GONNA put the broad my head. You know it didn't really need to get paid. They paid really well a Disneyland. That's why we did those silly gigs but you know they always have these silly laws. I think they're very they were very uptight. Organization in your memoir you write about how when you found the song heart like a wheel the Anna mcgarrigle song which she sang with her sister Kate. That's that's on rearranged your entire musical landscape first. Let's start with wider. Musical landscape need rearranging well. I'd come from in this kind of sensibility. My grandfather loved opera love La Traviata that was his favorite operas my favorite opera and he had this kind of you. You know already refined sensibility but he also loved traditional music and he loved Mexican music is really passionate about that so and the same with my father you know he liked he liked those things too so mcgonigal's kind of married this incredibly traditional sort of refined aesthetic with you know just telling it like it is sort of straight out no bones about it the way they talk about stuff and it was just as unabashed sentiment. They were unafraid of of female sentiment. Don't and I don't know there's something in the water up there in Canada because my favorite writers are the mcgarrigle Sisters Leonard Cohen Neil Young Gordon Gordon lightfoot. Oh my God what a great ballad writer Joni Mitchell. I mean you know there's just they're completely unique great writers and in a lot of ways they're are following in the tradition of what would be called art song and that was what I was seeing with mcgarrigle so I thought I didn't know what to call it then but I just knew it was different from folk music Zik and it wasn't the same as is rock and roll it wasn't there was no place for it in in pop music on the charts but I want to sing it because it told my story exactly how oh I felt at the time about what I was feeling about my life and my relationships and I just had to sing it and I tried it for a couple. I sang it for a couple of different guys and you know my my manager. At the time he said all that just to Corny you know he's going to want to listen to that and the wrecker wasn't interested in it and they said Oh that's not a hit then lumber played on the radio media so just kind of it's sorta hard feelings on behalf of the song and I sort of folded up and Tuck it in my pocket and then one night before we were GonNa play Carnegie Hall and the Night Right before I was rehearsing with my piano player Andrew Gold and he had learned the song some some other place. I don't know where he had learned it and he was just playing the introduction. I said I know that's on. Let's do it so I I sang through it. And of course you know I knew all the words and everything and I said let's put it in the show and we put it in the next night in Carnegie. Hall got a huge response so no that was that was how I won with that. I just kept trying you know well. It ended up being the title track of a nineteen seventy four album. Let's hear it This is my guest S. Linda Ronstadt singing heart like a wheel..

"So that was the stone ponies with my guest Linda underrun that and that was before different from this is from their first album so that so folk influence was that the direction you're heading in on the radio in those days the radi he was so wide open you could hear a jazz song the singing nun a country song and you know. Peter Paul and Mary you know doing sort of what was considered. Commercial Folk Music Music and we heard a lot of that stuff. We were really influenced by it. You know that kind of Finger Picking Guitar Style and stuff like that so that's where we're chasing then you got a manager in your manager thought you should really be the soloist. He wasn't that hot on the mant but he liked you and thought he could really promote you and then you're you ready to record in different drum and you show up in to the studio and like your bands not there these different musicians tell the story of what happened well. Originally we had record. I'd hide heard when it was sunk. All different drama I learned it off a bluegrass record by the Greenbriar boys and I thought it was a hit but I wanted to record it in a folk away so we recorded it with a guitar. Dr Mandolin and of course you know record company didn't like it and they said well. We WanNa do it again but we're GONNA get a different arrangement had no idea there was going to be all these musicians. It turns out they they were all good players. Don Randi was playing Jimmy. Gordon was the Drummer Wonderful Drummer Don Randy Forbes accord he had done ready laying harpsichord and he played piano so I was shocked and they played the arrangement. I didn't know how to fit the phrasing it I didn't. I suddenly wasn't the way I was used to singing it so it really knocked me off my stride and and I think we went through it twice and it was a hit you know what was I supposed to know. I mean I was just shocked. I didn't want him to use it because I I felt like I was struggling so with a singing and I thought that showed you know so clearly but it was a hit so when they put it out. That was a lucky thing for me that they didn't listen to me. So this is my guest Linda Ronstadt different from nineteen in sixty seven.

"Linda ronstadt welcome to fresh air is a great pleasure to have you on our show. thank you so much. I WanNa talk with you about your childhood and your family tree reading your memoir. I was astonished by the richness of your family tree. So let's start with your grandfather who was born in Mexico and I had a hardware store in Arizona. Tucson you and had a lot of business that came across the border from Mexico. Tell us about his music background. He was the one into son who taught everybody had to play their instruments in symbol command and wrote the arrangements and wrote a lot of compositions for the band and he was like the music man except he really knew how to play music and how to read and it was an autodidact he had quite a rich educationally went to. I think seventh grade in terms of formal schooling but he was a wide reader and loved opera loved loved art and all those elements were there you know in his life it was it was a rich life artistically he he was a rancher. That's how he made his living in Arizona. It's a tough gig because it's the desert and sometimes there's no water and then their cattle so he went through some tough times he went through the depression but he was apprenticed to a blacksmith when he was a teenager and so he had the reputation in southern Arizona for making the most beautiful wagons and buggies you know like the equivalent equivalent of a Mercedes that you would drive around horse and carriage did did he do a lot of Mexican songs. Oh yeah you know if you wanted to serenade your sweet argued. You'd get my my my grandfather's band to go in to in the morning and if you had to have a military parade while my grandfather's band was the one you get you know and if you had a wedding or a funeral it's short for that. I mean in those days. You had to make your own music. You couldn't get it off the radio you can get it from Youtube. You can download it. You had to make it yourself and that's what he did. so while we're talking about some of the music he introduced you to in the music he played. Let me play a track from the first of three albums that you did of Mexican and Spanish songs and their Mexican Song Mexican stars in the title of the Album Canzoni di. Mi Padre is the same title that your aunt gave a collection of songs and stories that she published. It's my an was a singer in a dancer and she was a a music scholar you know in the teens and twenties of the twenty century and she traveled all over Mexico and also went to Spain rain and she collected all these different regional songs and dances and she wrote a letter home to my grandfather saying that she discovered a guitar player that she thought was absolutely wonderful and he he could hold the attention of the audience when she left the stage change your costumes and she wanted to bring him to the United States because she was sure he would be a huge hit there and become a star in his own right right and the guitar player was on the via ended. Did he come here because of her. I don't know I'm sure she encouraged him to but I mean he. You know people that kind of talent. They make it on their own right right. Just didn't get in the way you know so the song like being the eagles. You know I didn't get their way. They're your backup band before. They're the backup band and I just got out of the way so the song i WanNa play from your first album of Mexican songs is I'm going to say this wrong. Rocus Yana L. WOP on what weapon geared all yeah Sienna Weapon Gabriel. It's a certain kind of song style of singing it just just there's so much emotion in the song say a few words about it before we hear it well. This music is typical of the mountain regions and I guess in mountain regions people develop kind of yodeling style 'cause they can throw their voice across that have telephone so they they yodel and so there's a beautiful kind of haunting romantic kind of break in the voice that makes it typical Bongo. They're my favorites and there's a rhythm underneath. It is would be written in European time signatures through a six eight but it's not really a six eight six eight with the kind of hitch in the gate you going to grew up in that region and sort of know how to count it. It's very much an indigenous Mexican rhythm okay so this is Linda Ronstadt from her first album of Mexican and songs Ketziot not me padre from nineteen eighty-seven.

Give Him some credit here. This is an extraordinarily talented guy. He's the face of E._S._P._N..

No one had ever heard of as it was Marnie who sang the songs, and so many famous Hollywood musicals with female stars simply lip synching to Marnie tracks while Andrews dad was the Oscar winning composer Ernest gold best known for his work on exodus and Andrew could play many instruments, including the guitar bass keyboards, drums, sin, flute and most percussion instruments. He was so good at it that on many songs he actually played virtually every instrument on the tracks. In fact, here's Linda Ronstadt. It's only number one song which. Andrew gold is playing almost every instrument on it. Well, Andrew turned around.
