LINDA RONSTADT has said in an interview with AARP, that she is battling Parkinson’s Disease and is unable to sing.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY reports, "the 67-year-old singer, best known for her songs 'You’re No Good' and 'When Will I Be Loved," sought medical advice after experiencing problems with her voice. 'Parkinson’s is very hard to diagnose, so when I finally went to a neurologist and he said, ‘Oh, you have Parkinson’s disease,’ I was completely shocked. I wouldn’t have suspected that in a million, billion years," she said.
The report notes that RONSTADT was diagnosed eight months ago, and sometimes requires help to walk.
