A Spector from Ronnie's past

Not before time, the Ronettes have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their enduring Phil Spector classics still sound as fresh today as they did back in the sixties. And Ronnie Spector has survived Phil's pananoia and abuse and is still around today. No one who saw her at the Town and Country 2 in 1991 will ever forget the great performance she put on that night, and we are still waiting hopefully for last year's cancelled London gig to be rescheduled. Meanwhile Phil's much postponed trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson in January 2003 is due to begin next week when jurors are selected. If the allegations against him are found to be true it will mark a sad end to a truly amazing life and career. As for Ronnie, it would seem that the ghost of Phil Spector haunts her to this day. In a fascinating article in the New York Post she links everything in her and his life to their stormy relationship. Well worth a read:
