Ronnie "Plonk" Lane
Original name: Ronald Frederick Lane Lane
Birth: Apr. 1, 1946
Forest Gate
Greater London, England
Death: Jun. 4, 1997
Las Animas County
Colorado, USA

Rock Musician. he was born in Forest Gate, East London, the son of Stanley (a lorry driver) and Elsie. In 1965, he founded The Small Faces with the late Steve Marriott, Kenny Jones, and Jimmy Winston, although the latter was soon replaced by Ian McLagan. After four years and twelve hit singles, including "All or Nothing" which reached Number One in 1966, as did the classic album "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake", Marriott left to form Humble Pie, and Lane, Jones and McLagan united with Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood (both from The Jeff Beck Group) under the new name, The Faces. This band enjoyed even greater success; but, in 1973, Lane left to form Slim Chance, who had a big hit with "How Come". Tragically, four years later, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis; in 1990, the same disease was to claim the life of his mother. He continued recording and, in 1984, relocated to Texas; first to Houston, then to Austin. Ten years later, with his third wife Susan Gallegos, the granddaughter of an Apache Chief, he relocated to Trinidad, Colorado, where, in 1997, he died and was buried only a few hours after his death. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
