Linda Ronstadt has joined David Crosby and the Beach Boys in selling her musical assets to music mogul Irving Azoff's Iconic Music Group. Ronstadt’s deal differs from Azoff’s others in that unlike the Beach Boys, it doesn’t include her intellectual properties, our as with Crosby, her songwriting publishing. Ronstadt instead inked a deal in which Iconic "has acquired Ronstadt’s assets, in a sale that includes name and likeness to promote the masters."
According to Rolling Stone, "Iconic’s partnership with Ronstadt, her longtime manager John Boylan, and personal assistant Janet Stark will aim to preserve her legacy in the digital era — including working with streaming services and social media, rolling out reissues, focusing on anniversaries, and more."
Although Ronstadt has retired from making music due to her battle with Parkinson’s disease, she remains in high profile, with the recent career-spanning documentary, The Sound Of My Voice, snagging the Grammy Award for Best Music Film.
