Bonnie Raitt

November 8, 1949, Burbank, CA

Long a critic's darling, singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt did not begin to win the comparable commercial success due her until the release of the aptly titled 1989 blockbuster Nick of Time; her tenth album, it rocketed her into the mainstream consciousness nearly two decades after she first committed her unique blend of blues, rock, and R&B to vinyl. ~ Allmusic: Bonnie Raitt ~ retrieved March 14, 2014 © Allmusic

Bonnie Raitt ~ Inducted in the 2000 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ~ When Bonnie Raitt won a phenomenal four Grammys in 1990, it came as overdue recognition for an artist who had been breaking down barriers of gender and genre since the early Seventies. Her feel for the blues was evident on her first album, Bonnie Raitt (1971), and though she’s explored different kinds of material over the years - including pop, rock and balladry - a serious rooting in the blues has remained evident in her work. ~ 2000 © Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

Salinger of the L.A. singer-songwriters; songs like These Days (first recorded by Velvet Underground singer Nico) capture the shift from the idealistic Sixties to the disillusioned Seventies. ~ 2012 © Rolling Stone
