Ronnie Spector

Multiple Grammy-winning rock legend Ronnie Spector helped define an entire era of pop music.  Her style and sound influenced artists from Joey Ramone and Bruce Springsteen to Amy Winehouse, and her beauty knocked Keith Richards for a loop. As the lead singer of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Ronettes, she pioneered a female daringness and performance style that did not previously exist – with their sexually-charged persona, The Ronettes were the first women in…

Roy Ayers

Roy Ayers

One of the most visible and winning jazz vibraphonists of the 1960s and an R&B bandleader in the 1970s and ’80s, Roy Ayers’ reputation is now that of one of the prophets of acid jazz, a man decades ahead of his time.
