New York - Singer Linda Ronstadt (You're No Good, It's So Easy) is ending her career due to Parkinson's disease, the 67-year-old rock and country singer said in an interview released on Saturday.
The 11-time Grammy Award winner told the magazine of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) that she “can't sing a note” since she developed Parkinson's.
Ronstadt told AARP that she was diagnosed eight months ago, years after she started to have shaky hands, which she attributed to a shoulder operation.
The final realisation and search for an answer came when her voice failed.
“I couldn't sing, and I couldn't figure out why,” she told AARP.
She uses poles to help her walk and a wheelchair for longer travel. Parkinson's is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system. - Sapa-dpa
