Gold was also a member of the Stoney Poneys and played a key role in the success of Linda Ronstadt’s career. Gold was 59. The Los Angeles Times reflected on Gold contribution to pop music:

He played several instruments, did arrangements and sang on such Ronstadt albums as “Heart Like a Wheel” in 1974, “Prisoner in Disguise” in 1975 and “Hasten Down the Wind” in 1976. His versatility also made him a highly regarded session player for such folk-rock musicians as James Taylor, Carly Simon, Loudon Wainwright III and J.D. Souther as well as the producer of recordings by Stephen Bishop, Nicolette Larson and others. – The Los Angeles Times

Gold last release was in 2008, “Copy Cat”, featured covers of mostly Beatles songs.
