The 70’s! What a time to be alive: the political drama, flower power, and the incredible fashion revolution! Aside from the culture of the decade, there are other things that we certainly miss about the era. Yes, we’re talking about the prominent stars of the 70’s! It might be decades since those days, but these lovely ladies still carry a certain influence over the entertainment industry. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see what they have been up to!
Kim Basinger is quite the talented model and actress! She made her debut on the small screen in a 1976 miniseries called Gemini Man. She had no problems looking for a job after that role! You probably remember her portrayal of Lynn Bracken in the film L.A. Confidential. Her acting career did not end there however, she is still acting to this day. In fact, she has appeared in both The Nice Guys and Fifty Shades Darker.
Linda Ronstadt’s career took off when she was a regular performer at the Troubadour nightclub in West Hollywood. The musician is perhaps better known as the “Queen of Rock” or the “First Lady of Rock”. It’s safe to say that she enjoyed a successful career— she even went on to win 10 Grammys and achieved 30 gold and platinum records! She only retired from singing when she received a Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis back in 2012. Luckily for us, she wrote down a memoir called Simple Dreams: A Musical Memoir, in the year 2013.
