Ronnie played Seattle's Rockabilly Ball two years in a row - it's a benefit for Dr. Leon Berman's "Shake The Shack" radio show on KEXP (then called KCMU). In 1997 he appeared with Nick Curran and Nick's band backing, and he played Marc Bristol's immortal song, giving Marc a major thrill! Ronnie changed the words a little to suit himself - you can hear Marc's original version at Filé Gumbo's Myspace page, and read Marc's interview with Ronnie in the still available issue #30 of Blue Suede News. Many thanks to Blue Suede News columnist (and at that time also assistant editor) Dennis DeWitt for capturing the moment on this video! It wasn't the only thrill at the time - Marc's sweetheart Gaby was visiting him for the first time that same week, and covering the event for her magazine Rockin' Fifties, based in Munich. They've now been married almost 10 years! That show was at Seattle's Showbox, and Sonny Burgess was also on the bill.
