God bless you Ronnie Bennett Spector. My very first female rock star crush. Although it was more earthy than a mere romantic fantasy. That beehive hairstyle, the voice, the tight dresses, the legs, the towering heels, the mascara. Yep it made my grubby little adolescent mind go into serious meltdown.

In fact she was a good girl made to look 'baad' by her management. Inside she was a wonderfully funny, self-deprecating, kind and totally natural New York girl with a heart as big as the Empire State Building.

Rest in Peace Ronnie, and thank you for 59 years of pleasure and great music.

This is so sad. Ronnie was a very dear friend and she leaves a huge gap. How I’m going to miss that infectious laugh and that great voice! My deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.
One love,
Keith.

All I want is a very good and sweet tune. Unfortunately Keith Richards is Keith Richards and destroys the whole thing with one of his NOT so brilliant standard solos - without even noticing, I guess. He was a legend and no one says NO to a legend. But still - a lovely song!

Yes All I want is wonderful, disagree that Keiths "destroys" it with a 20 second solo. If anything at nearly 5:00 it's a little too stretched out. Keith adds nice fills throughout. Work Out Fine is a hoot...if it wasn't for Keith I would have never cared to be honest

I started the day today by listening to "Tonight You're Mine, Baby" in her honor. It made me feel inspired all day. RIP Ronnie.

Ronnie Spector, Lead Ronette and “Be My Baby” Singer, Dies at 78
Her family announced on Wednesday that Spector had died from cancer.
BY KENZIE BRYANT
JANUARY 12, 2022

Ronnie Spector, lead singer of beloved ’60s girl group the Ronettes, has died from cancer, her family announced Wednesday. She was 78.

On her website, the family’s statement reads, “Our beloved earth angel, Ronnie, peacefully left this world today after a brief battle with cancer. She was with family and in the arms of her husband, Jonathan [Greenfield]. Ronnie lived her life with a twinkle in her eye, a spunky attitude, a wicked sense of humor and a smile on her face. She was filled with love and gratitude. Her joyful sound, playful nature and magical presence will live on in all who knew, heard or saw her.”

Born Veronica Bennett in 1943 in Harlem, Ronnie rose to fame as the lead vocalist of the Ronettes, a group she formed with her sister Estelle Bennett and their cousin Nedre Talley. Their song “Be My Baby” was their biggest hit, and they joined the Beatles on their U.S. tour in 1966.

From 1968 until 1974, she was married to Phil Spector, who produced many of the band’s records and died almost exactly a year ago. In her memoir, Be My Baby, she detailed his refusal to let her out of their home, among other allegations of emotional abuse. Spector was convicted of murder in 2009 and died while serving his sentence, but as Ronnie wrote on Instagram after his death, “I still smile whenever I hear the music we made together, and always will. The music will be forever.”

In 1982 she married manager Jonathan Greenfield, and her group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.

Her family wrote that she requested donations to local women’s shelters or the American Indian College Fund in lieu of flowers, noting that a celebration of life would be forthcoming.
