Ronnie Lane was born in 1946 on April Fool's Day!
It was a Monday.
While we have yet to gather Ronnie's birthday celebrations by timeline, this spring we have been delving into Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane's 1977 album Rough Mix.
Just today we received in the post this hot CD copy from JAPAN (swoon!)!
Like honeysuckles smell the blooms!
Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!
On the new Rough Mix album page you'll find all kinds of gems including links to listen to Rough Mix, promotional posters, Eric Clapton tid-bits and
a 10 minute live interview with Ronnie and Pete Townshend on
