The 1951 Rolling Review Show … Midweek Melody # 82
Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.
The Poacher – Ronnie Lane
Ronnie Lane started out as bass guitarist for 60s rock group The Small Faces. He later became part of Rod Stewart’s backing group The Faces. Then he struck out on his own with his own band Slim Chance. The Poacher reached #36 in UK singles chart in 1974.
During his career he worked and recorded with many great names including Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton and Pete Townsend. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the late 1970s and died in 1997, aged just 51.
