Bonnie Raitt Information Continued
While studying, Bonnie Raitt had played with many famous blues musicians and eventually took leave from school in 1970 to open for The Rolling Stones.
1977's Sweet Forgiveness gave Bonnie Raitt her first commercial breakthrough when it yielded a hit single in her cover of Del Shannon's "Runaway". Recast as a heavy R&B recording based on a rhythmic groove inspired by Al Green, Bonnie Raitt's version of "Runaway" was a huge success.
After more than twenty years of singing and recording popular music, Bonnie Raitt achieved immense success with her 10th album. Released in 1989, Nick of Time went to the top of the U.S. charts and won three Grammy Awards. At the same time, Bonnie Raitt walked away with a fourth Grammy Award for her duet "In the Mood" with John Lee Hooker on his album The Healer.
