Linda Thompson


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Linda Thompson (born Linda Pettifer) started her singing career in the 1960s, doing advertising jingles for money and singing in folk clubs for enjoyment. She changed her name to Linda Peters, and was romantically linked to Martin Carthy before working with Richard Thompson, whom she married in 1972. As part of Richard & Linda Thompson she sang on a string of critically acclaimed albums until a bitter split in 1982. After battling voice problems over the years since, she resurfaced with a solo album in 1996, and has worked sporadically since. Linda and Richard’s children Teddy Thompson and Kamila Thompson are both involved in music.

    "wow wow she is much better on her own." I like her solo albums fine but... really? To each their own, I guess.

    Richard epically fucked over Linda and their kids. One of the biggest dick moves in modern music history.I love Richard, but it was just awful. Linda is amazing. :)

    Why the vote on the correct name?!? Does Richard Thompson also have this? I think there are: 1. Linda Thompson 2. Richard Thompson 3. Richard & Linda Thompson as independant artists
