Quote of the Day (Linda Ronstadt, on Music as ‘Dreaming in Sound’)

“The dream world of sleep and the dream world of music are not far apart. I often catch glimpses of one as I pass through a door to the other, like encountering a neighbor in the hallway going into the apartment next to one’s own. In the recording studio, I would often lie down to nap and wake up with harmony parts fully formed in my mind, ready to be recorded. I think of music as dreaming in sound.”—Linda Ronstadt, Simple Dreams (2013)

Congratulations to Linda Ronstadt on her long-delayed—but well-merited—election to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Also, please see my prior post following her announcement that she now has Parkinson’s Disease.)
