Linda Ronstadt will not be attending next week's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies in New York.

She tells that Parkinson's Disease has made it "very hard for me to travel...I have to save traveling for things I really have to do.  I have to spend a certain amount of time visiting my family, and I have to spend a little bit of time doing things that are professional.  But I just can't travel casually, it's too hard."

Rumor has it the music legend is working on a new duets album to be released sometime later this year.  We wish Linda all the best.
