The 100 Hottest Female Singers of All Time

95. Linda Ronstadt

Band Or Solo Artist?: Both
Band Name(s): Stone Poneys
Genre: Rock, Pop, R&B
Greatest Hit: "You're No Good" (1975)

Take your pick: she's "The Queen of Rock," or "The First Lady of Rock," or, if we put it in economical terms, the "highest paid woman in rock." Linda Ronstadt is responsible for giving life to California's young folk and rock music scene in the late 1960s and '70s. With Bobby Kimmel and Kenny Edwards, she formed The Stone Poneys, steadily laying the groundwork for her to become a genuine rock star.
