At the age of twenty, Bonnie Raitt
- the daughter of famed musical theatre actor John Raitt - put a career in the political arena on hold to tour with The Rolling Stones
and never looked back. The Grammy-winning guitar player and vocalist has been a fixture in the music industry since the early 70's
, releasing critically acclaimed (if not terribly commercially successful)
albums throughout that decade and into the next before a cold streak in the mid eighties threatened to derail her career for good. The self-styled comeback effort Nick Of Time
did all that and more, not only regaining her critical standing but setting the stage for a run as one of the most popular acts of the next decade
. The 1991 follow-up, Luck Of The Draw
featured her two most famous songs, Something To Talk About
and I Can't Make You Love Me
Rolling Stone readers voted her to their lists of the greatest singers (50th) and guitarists (89th) of all time.
