Description Focusing largely on her career including being the first bona fide female rock star, the life of Linda Ronstadt is presented. That path from her upbringing outside of Tucson, Arizona with European and Mexican heritage to that stardom having moved to Los Angeles to pursue that singing career is shown, with commentary not only from her own lips, but that of many of her contemporaries who were also emerging at the same time. Her own sensibilities as a woman in a profession dominated by men affected not only the way she acted within that environment, but also impacted the face of rock music especially as it related to women. Her move out of rock music to other genres in getting back to other types of music with which she grew up is also presented, she being told told time and time again that such moves would ruin her career, but the contrary eventually happening with she and the music with each move being met with critical acclaim and popular appeal. These genres included light operetta in the form of Gilbert and Sullivan (most specifically The Pirates of Penzanze), pop standards in collaboration with Nelson Riddle, a purely country collaboration with old friend Emmylou Harris and new friend Dolly Parton, a pop music collaboration with Aaron Neville, and a recording of traditional Spanish-language Mexican folk songs. Not being a songwriter but owning whatever song she decided to sing, and the reason for her retirement in 2009, when she gave her last concert, are also discussed. And two of her higher profile romantic relationships, to fellow musician JD Souther and then California Governor Jerry Brown, are also touched upon.

This is a truly remarkable documentary. I haven't read any of the music, but the story is amazing. I first learned about the story when I was in middle school, and I realized how much I enjoyed it. I found the story to be very moving, and it was especially inspiring to me because I was a teenage girl in middle school. I was very naive about the music scene, and I still remember the confusion I felt as a teenager, and how my friends tried to tell me who I should listen to, and what I should listen to, and what I should not listen to. I also remember being very disappointed by the music industry at the time, and I had the impression that I didn't belong there. However, I now realize that the music industry has a lot to offer, and I'm glad that I listened to some of their music when I was younger. This film is a must-see for anyone who loves music, or anyone who has grown up in a musical family. If you are a music fan, you should see this film, and if you're not, you should watch it. It's a powerful story of how an independent musician (a person who makes music for a living, and doesn't have to rely on the music industry) overcame a lot of obstacles, and made a difference in the lives of many people, including himself. It's also a story of a true story, and a beautiful one at that. I'm glad I got to see this documentary, and I hope that I will be able to see it again soon. I also want to tell the people who didn't like this documentary, that the music industry is not all about money. It's about the music itself, and it's important that people listen to the music they like, and not the music industry. If you're a music fan, I recommend you see this film. I also recommend that you listen to the music, and listen to the music that is associated with this film. This film is truly inspirational. It's a true story about a person who made a difference in people's lives, and is a true story about the music industry. It's a wonderful story, and it's a great story.
