Ronnie (Bennett) Spector, lead singer of the Ronettes and one time wife of Phil Spector has passed away from cancer at age 78. She was a fine singer, no telling how far she would have gone if Spector hadn't been so determined to hold her back. She eventually ditched him and had a long, if not terribly prominent, career.

This is very sad, indeed.

As cheesy as it may sound, while listening to Christmas music non-stop over the holidays, whenever the Ronnettes version of "Frosty The Snowman" came on, her voice still gave me chills even on that song. Such was the plaintive, emotive tug of her voice on the heartstrings.

RIP, Ronnie.
