Linda Maria Ronstadt was born July 15, 1946 in Tucson, Arizona.
She became the lead singer of the successful folk rock group, The Stone
Poney. In the 1970's her private life was given publicity because of a
relationship with then-Governor Jerry Brown of California, a Democratic
presidential candidate. They shared a Newsweek magazine cover in April
1979. Ronstadt and Brown also took a trip to Africa which became fodder
for the media. In the mid-1980s, Ronstadt was engaged ("ring on the
finger and all") to Star Wars director George Lucas.
