Hello everyone.
Earlier this week, entertainer Linda Ronstadt announced that she is fighting Parkinson's disease, and that it
has already taken her singing voice; thus prematurely ending her singing career.

08. What two entertainers did Ronstadt team up with to form the Trio?
09. What was Ronstadt's first solo album to be ranked #1?

While many people answered A Game of Thrones, that is actually the title of the HBO adaptation and the very first book.

The OFFICIAL title of the book series is: A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.
