Ronnie Spector is obviously not lacking in the ego department. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the former Ronettes lead singer was furious when she read Keith Richards’ tell-all autobiography, Life, and came across a passage talking about how the Rolling Stones guitarist used to do drugs with someone named Ronnie:
“It was never like that with Keith and me. It was always very innocent. It wasn’t all about ‘let’s get in the bed’ with him. I never had sex with him or anything like that…. We may have kissed, I don’t remember. It was 40 years ago,” Spector told Vanity Fair.
“I was skimming through it the other day, and he’s talking about Ronnie, and I think, ‘Oh, he must mean me. I’ll read this.’ And then he writes, ‘We went in the bathroom and did drugs.’ I was like, ‘Keith! I never did drugs! What are you saying?'”
Turns out the singer’s ire was misplaced: the “Ronnie” in question was Richards’ bandmate Ronnie Wood.
