Ronnie Spector – RIP

139

Immortale. Icona. Una pioniera. Veronica Yvette Bennett è morta all’età di 78 anni dopo una battaglia impari contro il solito male. Ronnie Spector nell’Olimpo assieme certamente alla sorella Estelle (scomparsa nel 2009) e alla cugina Nedra: The Ronettes. E poi il sodalizio nodale con Phil Spector (Ronnie lo sposa nel 1968 e si separa nel 1972) e la storia del trio di New York che dura giusto una decina d’anni (1967) quando già tutto è stato scritto. Per comprendere la grandezza lasciamo parlare le testimonianze del mondo intorno partendo dallo “statement” della famiglia.

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. 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. In lieu of flowers, Ronnie requested that donations be made to your local women’s shelter or to the American Indian College Fund. A celebration of Ronnie’s life and music will be announced in the future. The family respectfully asks for privacy at this time.
