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.

I've always been a big fan of Linda Ronstadt and had been wanting to see this since I saw her live in the summer of 2006. I was not disappointed. This was a great interview with an awesome singer-songwriter and an amazing person. The first thing I'd say is that this is an amazing "behind the scenes" look at the creation of an album, an album that never would have happened without Linda. I would also like to say that this is the only film I have seen that has really captured the essence of a lot of people's lives and how they've made music in the same way. When she talks about her family, she has a lot of insight into what they went through in her life. She talks about her mother, her father, and her brother, as well as the things that have affected her. She talks about the people she has met in the past and how her life has changed. She speaks about her success and her struggles. I'm not a huge music fan, but I was in awe of how inspiring this documentary was to me. I was also moved by the way the music was played. I was blown away by the way she talks about the songs that she sings. I've never been a fan of hers, but I thought this was an excellent interview. I would also like to say that I am a big fan of Madonna, but I think she has a lot of insight in this film. I'm not a huge Madonna fan, but this documentary is a must-see for anyone. It's amazing how much she has gone through. I have to say, this is the best interview I've ever seen for her. I can't wait to see the next documentary with her.

After all the fuss over her 2009 documentary, "Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice," I had a feeling I'd never have a chance to watch this. The doc, which chronicles her life as a singer in the rock band, the Byrds, was almost as good as the documentary itself, as it revealed the soul of the great singer, who, at one point, was hospitalized after having a stroke. This film, directed by Shauna Schott, tells the story of the music legend and her tumultuous life. It is the story of how she came to be famous, how she fought with her family, and how she dealt with her drug addiction. The film does a good job of showing her struggles and successes, but it also tells a story about the difficulties of her family, and how the family was so close, it was hard to imagine how this person could ever be loved. The documentary is a look at the woman's life as a performer, and how she became a successful musician, a singer, and a songwriter. It is a fascinating look at the singer and her struggles, as well as the music of the Byrds. The film is well-acted and well-directed. It's one of the best biographies I've ever seen. It was interesting and informative. The movie has a lot of footage, but the film does a good job of putting together a good amount of information, as well as providing a lot of the information in a way that is engaging. This is the type of documentary that is well-made and well-made. I loved it. It was an enjoyable movie, and one that will be an entertaining one to watch.

I saw this documentary on TV at the time, and was completely taken aback by it. I just don't understand how anyone could think this was a good movie. I could see why it was nominated for an Oscar, but it was just a waste of time. I didn't think anyone could say this was "scary" or "creepy". I never felt anything of the kind, I was just annoyed that someone would pay money to watch this. I didn't even like that it was about a woman who had a son who had died and he wanted to be remembered, and I don't even like his music. I thought the documentary would be about someone who was battling an illness, and about how to raise a child who has been born with a disability. I wasn't even disappointed at all by the film. The only part that really bothered me was when they talked about a parent's opinion about what they did with their son's death. The father said he didn't believe that it was his fault. The mother didn't believe that she did anything wrong, and she didn't like the idea of her son having a memorial for him. The mother also said she felt bad that her son would have to bury someone in his memories. Why didn't the mother just let the boy die and leave the coffin to her? Why did she feel she had to bury someone's memory? I don't understand it. It didn't feel like a documentary, it felt like a documentary made by the mother. It also didn't feel like it was worth the money. It's not even worth watching on TV. I can't even understand how someone could get any of it. It's not worth watching, unless you like that kind of documentary. I gave it a 6/10.
