The Hill article The band ’70’s Band’ was one of the first groups to have the idea that ‘rock stars are cool and all you gotta do is be cool.’
But the band, which featured vocalist Linda Ronstadt, didn’t quite make it past its first year of recording, before being booted from the scene.
A former member of the band’s original lineup, Ronstadt has been vocal about her experiences with the group’s musical history, and she spoke out in an interview with The Hill about the legacy she hopes the band leaves behind.
Ronstadt said, “I feel like I was one person, the band was one, and the songs are the songs.”
She added, “My whole experience with the band and all of its songs and all the music we did was my life, my passion, and my job.
Ronstadt spoke about the band being part of a time in her life when she was young and in her 20s. “
I want it to remain as a living, breathing thing that has to keep evolving.”
Ronstadt spoke about the band being part of a time in her life when she was young and in her 20s.
“My 20s were very, very dark, very, kind of dark,” she said.
“We were on drugs, we were in some very, extremely violent relationships.
“And that was my experience of being a teenager, and it was a really dark time in my life. “
“But I remember that it was all of a sudden the music changed, and music became a really powerful thing for me.” “
The band was part of the 70s, a decade that included the release of the Beatles’ Abbey Road and Nirvana’s Nevermind, and was featured in a documentary on the history of rock ‘n’ roll. “

But it was not to last.
The band stopped touring in 1996, but continued to play live, and then in 2000, Ronstedt said, the group was back on tour, with the exception of a short run of shows with the Roxy Music Festival in Las Vegas, which was cancelled.
The group eventually broke up, but Ronstedtt said she’s still hopeful the band will return.
She said, “’70s band’ was a band that was very, quite, really important to me as a teenager.
It was my only band, and there was a lot of music that came out of it, and that was really important.”
She said she wants the band to remain a part of her life.
Ronstedts daughter, who is now 16, said that her parents are working on making their life together more meaningful.
“It’s not going to be just like this rock band thing where we just want to go on vacation and hang out,” she told The Hill.
“This is our life.
It’s not just about rock ‘N’ roll and the Beatles.
We want to make our lives meaningful, and we want to live our lives.”
