Birthday Girl: Just Like Ronnie Sang

On this, the 69th birthday of Miss Ronnie Spector, girl-group diva and Phil Spector-survivor, one thing seems certain:  in an all-girl-group, no-holds-barred catfight, the only ones who might not be totally trounced by the Ronettes would be the Shangri-Las, and that's only 'cause then it would be four-on-three.  Oh, sure, the Vandellas would hold their own for a while, but you don't want to get Ronnie mad.  The Supremes?  Don't make me laugh - Diane wouldn't stand a chance, not least because Florence, if she knew what was good for her, would switch sides halfway through.


  1. I wouldn't rule out the Dixie Cups. At least two of them often looked like they would cut a bitch.

    And I wouldn't overlook The Exciters. Lillian, Brenda and Carol looked like gals who knew how to take of themselves.

  2. no, no, no, I'm with Muscato. Ronnie's small, but she's feisty. There will be blood.
