Ronnie Spector

Pop,R&B/Soul

The distinctive sound of Ronnie Spector and the Ronettes is the archetype of the eccentric music producer's Phil Spector's percussive Wall of Sound. Inspired by Ronnie's sultry powerhouse of a voice, heavy with vibrato, Spector engineered a series of hits that long ago found their place in in the rock 'n' roll canon. Her best-known songs include "Be My Baby," "Baby I Love You," and "Don't Worry Baby," the last of which Brian Wilson wrote especially for The Ronettes. Veronica Bennett, as she was known in the early days, made the mistake of marrying Spector, a jealous and controlling husband, in 1966 and spent the next seven years trying to get away from him. She has toured repeatedly on the comeback circuit, with – but mostly without – her original group. The Ronettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
