This serious and sad incident happened circa 1972, while Mitchell was composing her album, "For the Roses." It’s reported by journalist Sheila Weller in her new book, “Girls Like Us,” which was excerpted in the April issue of Vanity Fair.
By his 20th birthday, the baby-faced songwriter had already been linked romantically to chanteuses Nico, Joni Mitchell, and Laura Nyro; by age 23, he had three critically acclaimed solo albums, a couple of radio hits (“Doctor My Eyes,” “Rock Me on the Water”), and stars like Ronstadt, The Eagles, The Byrds, and Joan Baez clamoring to record his songs. After an ugly breakup with Mitchell, Browne met the beautiful but troubled model Phyllis Major.
The two soon married, but in March 1976, two years after the birth of their son, Ethan, Major committed suicide by taking an overdose of barbiturates.
There was a long slump after the romantic drama Endless Love — but she resurrected her acting career with a spell in Friends in 1996, followed by the sitcom Suddenly Susan.
(The hit single “Here Come Those Tears Again” was co-written with Nancy Farnsworth, Major’s mother, before the album was recorded.) Even more poignant are the twin reflections on fatherhood: In “The Only Child,” Browne speaks to his own son (“And remember to be kind/When the pain of another will serve you to remind”) while addressing his own distant father in “Daddy’s Tune” (“I don’t know why it was so hard to talk to you/I guess my anger pulled me through”).Romances: Her mother, Teri, coaxed her into a summer romance with John Travolta, then 27 and starring in the film Blow Out, when she was 16.Fellow Seventies rock legend and former collaborator David Crosby told the Idaho Statesman on Monday: 'I happen to know that [Young] is hanging out with somebody that's a purely poisonous predator now.'Not only were the pair married and the parents of two grown children - son Ben and daughter Amber - but they were also frequent musical collaborators, the 61-year-old the inspiration behind a number of her husband's love songs over the years.Linda Ronstadt possessed one of the great voices of her generation, but the singer says listening to her early work only makes her cringe.She sings, if briefly, when USA TODAY visits her San Francisco home.
