(AP) Linda Ronstadt says she suffers from Parkinson's disease, which has robbed her ability to sing.


The 67-year-old music legend tells AARP Magazine, in an article posted online Friday, that she was diagnosed eight months ago and "can't sing a note."


Ronstadt says she began to show symptoms as long as eight years ago, but attributed her inability to sing then to a tick disease. When her hands began to tremble, Ronstadt said she thought the shaking was the result of a shoulder operation.


She said she was "completely shocked" when she finally saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.


Ronstadt sold tens of millions of records starting in the 1970s with pop hits like "You're No Good" and "When Will I Be Loved."
