Missing Ronnie Barron

Ah, Ronnie Barron, what a great musician he was, and a great guy. This photograph would have been in Everybody I Shot Is Dead, if it wasn't a single frame in a Chuck E. Weiss (still alive and playing amazing) roll of film. This photo was taken at the Troubadour a year or two after I shot Ronnie in Vancouver when he was playing with Paul Butterfield Better Days. And then I ran into him again when he was playing with John Mayall and I was working on Starart.

 
 

RONNIE BARRON
10/9/43 - 3/20/97

Not a lot to grab from YouTube. This video looks like crap but Ronnie's talent breaks through just fine...

 
 

Ronnie Barron is one of 48 musicians I honor in my book, Everybody I Shot Is Dead.
