Ronettes - Big TNT Show - California - November 29, 1965
The girls broke up in late 1966. This was one of their last live appearances. Their final release "I Can Hear Music" was released in Oct. '66. Ronnie thought she was going to go on to have a spectacular career by marrying Phil Spector. Nedra was ready to step down. And she married boyfriend Scott Ross, and they are still married today with (4) grown children. Estelle did not want to break the group up. She loved being a Ronette, loved the lifestyle. And the breakup began a very sad lifetime of physical and emotional deterioration leading to her pre-mature death on February 11, 2009.

You might notice the girls are having a lot of fun on stage here! Ronnie and even Estelle are adding those little barks and squeals that they loved to add during their live shows in the early '60' and their early recordings on Colpix. Phil went crazy when he saw (especially) Ronnie out there with all the extra body language and sexy squeals here. He always wanted Ronnie precise, controlled, if not robotic. And Ronnie fought that all the way. Ronnie later related that Phil confronted her when she came off stage here and said something to the effect, "What the $%$! where you doing out there?!"

When my son, who is about to turn 30, was about to turn 2, we saw Ronnie with Eddie Money on TV. He walked up to the TV and kept touching the screen and taking deep swoons. He kept turning to me and saying, "Ma-ma, I love her." Ever since then he has always been drawn to ladies who look like Ronnie. I was born in 1958. My early childhood was a time of fantastic girl groups and I loved them. The Ronettes are by and far my favorite, down to this day. Ronnie's voice is unmatchable in the pop world. Lulu sounded a lot like her and many were very good, but Ronnie's was clear, crisp and she had perfect vibrato. Ronnie Spector, followed by Etta James, Lulu, Sandy Shaw, Dionne Warwick and Karen Carpenter, the more memorable voices of pop in my mind. Ronnie will always top that list.

There is not one female black entertainer today that can hold a candle to any of these women of the 60's and 70's.
