THE RONETTES: NOW THERE ARE TWO LEFT
A member of Amy Winehouse’s favorite group, The Ronettes, has died. Ronnie Spector’s sister Estelle (far right) was found dead in her New Jersey apartment. Ronnie and Estelle and their cousin Nedra formed the group with the “bad girl” image in the 60′s while still in their teens. They wore huge beehives, black eyeliner, and tight clothes and Phil Spector signed them right up. Their big hits were “Be My Baby” and “Walkin’ in the Rain” and they toured with The Beatles. And guess what- Estelle DATED George Harrison- they are standing together in this amazing old photo from London’s Daily Mail. Yes, that’s Phil Spector sitting on the chair.
