In 1965, Kenny Edwards was a co-founder of The Stone Poneys, along with Linda Ronstadt and Bobby Kimmel, and with them made several albums on Capitol Records, toured, and became well-known in the new American folk-rock movement of the 1960’s. Since then he has collaborated and played with the likes of Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Warren Zevon, and even Ringo Starr.
The term “musical legend” is applied far too liberally these days, and those who are truly deserving of such accolades tend to be the least comfortable with embracing them. Kenny Edwards truly is a musical legend. One of the main characters in the American folk-rock movement of the late-sixties and early seventies, audiences soon realize how very familiar they are with the sound of Edwards' voice and his wonderful musicianship.After the Stone Poneys, Kenny lived and worked right in the heart of LA's "Troubadour days”. During this time he teamed up with Karla Bonoff, Wendy Waldman, and Andrew Gold to form the legendary band Bryndle, ultimately signed to A&M. Kenny and Andrew went on to become the backbone of Linda Ronstadt's band, and were central to the Ronstadt sound during her hit years in the ‘70s. In Kenny's case, he also supplied Ronstadt with material - he introduced her to the music of Karla Bonoff, and he co-wrote with Linda himself on occasion. During this time Kenny also produced Karla Bonoff's debut album and two more for CBS.
