Linda Ronstadt: Blue Bayou
I saw Linda Ronstsdt perform at Cerritos College. It was earlier in her career than when this was shot. It was almost at the beginning and she looked like Zooey Deschanel when she was new. The warm-up act was Dan Hicks who had earlier been leader of Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, which was a kind of novelty group that did music along the lines of Leon Redbone and Doctor John. The crowd seemed to be all Linda R. fans. I was the only one that I knew who was also a Dan Hicks fan. The audience did not enjoy Hicks and booed him more and more until he became very angry at them. Finally he stopped and said loudly, "F____ you! I only came here to feel Linda's titties!" And then he walked off stage to cat calls and cheers.
