Linda Ronstadt is a rock icon. Her's is said to be, a "once in a generation" voice. Her music, the soundtrack to so many of our lives. But now, as she faces a new challenge, Parkinson's Disease. Friday, she sat down with Diane Sawyer to talk about her music, her life and her health.

Linda Ronstadt says, "my dreams are kind of crowded now. I feel like I'm out in a crowd in my dreams. But that will change too, I'm sure. I'm just glad I have them. When I wake up in the morning I think I can walk and I can talk so it's a good day. Because there will probably come a day when I can't do those things. Somebody said to me, another Parkinson's person said, Life after death isn't the question. It's life before death. So what are you going to live? How are you going to do it?"
