Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Linda Ronstadt 'can't sing a note'

Legendary singer Linda Ronstadt, 67, told AARP that she “can’t sing a note” because she suffers from Parkinson’s disease.

Diagnosed eight months ago, Ronstadt began to show symptoms as long as eight years ago.



But she ascribed her inability to sing to a tick bite (“my health has never recovered since then”), and believed the shaking in her hands resulted from shoulder surgery.
