Ronnie Lane


"How Come"


SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

Ronnie was born 1 April 1946. He was an English musician and songwriter, and producer. Lane is best known from his time with the Small Faces where he is was one half of the great songwriting team Marriott/Lane. When the Small Faces split up in 1969 he continued with Kenney Jones and Ian MacLagan in the Faces, which also featured Rod Stewart and Ron Wood. He formed his own band Slim Chance, who recorded the album "Anymore for Anymore". Lane moved to Island Records and issued two albums, "Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance" and "One for the Road". Instead of rejoining the reformed Small Faces in 1977, he recorded an album with Pete Townshend, which received much critical acclaim, but which did not sell very well. In 1979 he released his final studio album "See Me". Around 1977 Lane's multiple sclerosis was diagnosed, and this sesease ultimately led to his death in 1997.
