Born too late

This is from the year I was born. I love all these girl groups that end in -ettes or -elles but the Ronettes have a sound and look that transcends the lot. I'd love to have been around then. Jimmy Greaves and Veronica Bennet; what a combination! It's no secret that Ronnie Bennet/ Spector's life when married to Phil Spector was awful but I had no idea just how nutty he was. He'd lock her in the mansion and kept a gold and glass coffin that he reckoned he'd put her in if she left him. I have a plain wooden one in my cellar- why waste all that money?
