2007 Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee

The ultimate rock & roll survivor, Ronnie Spector, brings her famed "Christmas Party" to San Francisco for the first time! Ronnie has another recent to celebrate during this holiday season: As the lead singer of the quintessential girl group, the Ronettes, she's just been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Ronnie Spector is one of those rare artists whose voice defines an entire era in pop music: the heart, soul, and passion of female rock and roll—yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Ronnie's recordings of "Frosty the Snowman," "Sleigh Ride," and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" are the definitive rock & roll versions of these holiday favorites. In 1992, her rendition of "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" was a highlight of the Top Ten platinum album A Very Special Christmas 2.

As the lead singer of the Ronettes, Ronnie cut a string of unforgettable pop classics: "Be My Baby," "Baby I Love," "Do I Love You," and the Grammy Award-winning "Walking In The Rain." In the Sixties, Ronnie toured with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Yardbirds (with Eric Clapton). Ronnie sang on one of the last recording sessions by her friend Jimi Hendrix, and was backed by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band on her version of Billy Joel's "Say Goodbye to Hollywood."
Ronnie's 2006 CD, Last of the Rock Stars, is simply the best and most fully realized album of her career. The supporting cast includes special guests Patti Smith, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner, Rolling Stone Keith Richards, and members of The Raconteurs.
