Thread Name: Obit: Ronnie Spector RIP (1943-2022)
Subject: RE: Obit: Ronnie Spector RIP (1943-2022)
Wikipedia tells her story quite well. Veronica Yvette Bennett was born in 1942, and she and her sister and a cousin formed a "girl group" trio in 1957 - they named the group "The Ronettes" in 1963. They had only one Top Ten hit, Be My Baby, released in 1963. I'm surprised their 1964 Walking in the Rain only his #23. Ronnie married Phil Spector in 1968, and changed her name to Ronnie Spector. Phil Spector was a legendarily abusive husband, and the couple were divorced in 1974. In 1982, Spector married her manager Jonathan Greenfield, and they were married until her death in 2022.
One of my favorite "girl group" singers. May she rest in peace.
