Rock Venus – The Songs of Linda Ronstadt

“JANE CLIFTON'S TRIBUTE TO THE ULTIMATE ROCK VENUS - LINDA RONSTADT SURPASSED ANY RESERVATIONS I HAD FROM THE FIRST BEATS OF OPENING SONG THE STONE PONEYS' DIFFERENT DRUM”

Linda Ronstadt – winner of 11 Grammy Awards, 3 American Music Awards, nominated for both a Tony and a Golden Globe and inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2014 – announced to the world in 2012 that she had Parkinson's Disease and was unable to sing another note. Although not a songwriter herself, the Linda Ronstadt catalogue of songs - spanning 30 albums, 15 compilations and a massive 38 Billboard Top 100 hits – is a solid gold testament to the platinum hit power of that beautiful voice, now silent.

Different Drum, Just One Look, When Will I Be Loved and the Billboard No.1 hit single You're No Good. Inspired covers of Roy Orbison's Blue Bayou, The Eagles Desperado and Martha and the Vandellas' Love Is Like A Heatwave. The hits kept coming. But behind the hits, backstage in the macho-man, dark ages of 70s rock, life was not so easy for the solo girl singer on the road and Linda often found herself at the mercy of the 'rock 'n roll boys club' with all its challenges and put-downs.

“Jane Clifton's tribute to the ultimate Rock Venus - Linda Ronstadt surpassed any reservations I had from the first beats of opening song the Stone Poneys' Different Drum” – Anastasia Lambis, All About Entertainment

‘Clifton - possesses a powerhouse set of pipes in her own right’ – Patrick McDonald, The Advertiser

‘Clifton's passionate homage verges on adulation, and an audience, familiar with Ronstadt, share in the sheer ebullience of Clifton's performance’ – Peter Wilkins, Canberra Critics Circle

‘Clare Moore and Rosie Westbrook (Southern Belles) have once again brought together a show that spotlights the musical icon that is Linda Ronstadt’ – Rosie van Heerde, The Clothesline.
