The singer says she was diagnosed eight months ago, though she may have suffered symptoms for nearly a decade.
Linda Ronstadt has revealed her struggles with Parkinson's disease in an interview with AARP.
The singer, 67, told the magazine that she can no longer sing. She was diagnosed eight months ago but has suffered from symptoms for as long as eight years -- issues she previously ascribed to a tick bite and shoulder surgery.
"No one can sing with Parkinson’s disease,” Ronstadt said. “No matter how hard you try.”
