Beyond the Beehive
March 9, 2014 Queen Elizabeth Hall
"In January of 1964, the Ronettes and I stepped off the plane at Heathrow... I'll never forget that moment walking into the airport, I could feel the excitement in the air. To be returning to Southbank to debut my 'Beyond the Beehive' show in London at the WOW festival is mindblowing. From the Stones to the Beatles to Eric Clapton and the Yardbirds, those were magical times in the UK and such a part of my history. I can't wait to bring my 'Beyond the Beehive' show back to where it all started."
Be My Baby
How I Survived Mascara, Miniskirts and Madness, or My Life as a Fabulous Ronette
Audiobook now available read by Ronnie herself.
"Pop icon Ronnie Spector reads her bestselling memoir Be My Baby in an abridged audiobook edition that captures the singer's no-holds-barred story of her life and times as the original bad girl of rock'n'roll. You'll have a front row seat as Ronnie recalls her humble beginnings as a "half-breed" teenager in Spanish Harlem, and you'll thrill as she recounts the Cinderella story of her meteoric rise to fame as lead singer of the most influential girl group of all time, The Ronettes. You'll be enthralled at Ronnie's firsthand account of her days as the voice at the center of Phil Spector's Wall of Sound, and you'll gasp as she reveals the wild and shocking details of her marriage to Phil Spector -- a romance that began as a fairy tale but soon descended into a nightmare of depravity and isolation behind the locked gates of a Beverly Hills mansion. Finally, you'll laugh and cry with Ronnie as she describes her daring escape from the prison her life had become, and you'll feel Ronnie's despair as she recounts the challenges she faced in her struggles to reclaim her life, her sanity, and her voice. Finally, you'll cheer for Ronnie's triumph when she finds a new life, with a new husband, kids, and a happiness she never dreamed possible. And through it all is that voice--the same voice that inspired her friendships and musical collaborations with rock legends from John Lennon to Bruce Springsteen; the same voice that continues to thrill and inspire fans around the world; and the same voice that casts its spell as Ronnie reads this one-of-a-kind memoir of a one-of-a-kind life lived at the very epicenter of rock'n'roll." - Amazon.com
