Back 20 years ago, I was recording with Bruce Springsteen, and his producer called me and said I had to be in the studio the next day to finish the sessions, and I couldn’t. I had to be in court, in California. All this took like 10 years out of my life.

But I don’t really like to discuss Phil anymore.

Ronnie Spector

But, you know, the Stones were my opening act in the Sixties. I loved those British guys, the way they just stood there and shook their hair.

Ronnie Spector

Every act I see, their whole act is choreographed. I’m sick of seeing these dancers. The only reason they have them is they don’t have enough talent to get people dancing themselves.

Ronnie Spector

From that first meeting, I totally loved working with Joey, it was a real collaboration.

Ronnie Spector

I have three adopted children with Phil, and for years I was fighting in court with him over being able to see my kids. I was always going back and forth to California, going to court, and I was never able to get a project going.

Ronnie Spector

I just want to get on stage and sing and be happy.

Ronnie Spector

I love my songs, let’s not get crazy here.

Ronnie Spector

I love Ruth Brown, not just her singing, but Ruth Brown has more girl power than anyone, because she fought hard against people who ripped her off and then helped other artists through the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.

Ronnie Spector

I love the fact that 35 years later, I still hear my songs on the radio.

Ronnie Spector

I mean, Janet Jackson? She’s like Michael Jackson with hair.

Ronnie Spector

I never tried to kill myself or anything.

Ronnie Spector

I see the Ricky Martin thing, and everything is like, just packaged for this moment. Where are they going to be 10 years, 20 years from now?

Ronnie Spector

I think Behind the Music is good for people like Leif Garrett and Motley Crue.

Ronnie Spector

I used to cry myself to sleep every night. I missed singing so much. And performing. Man, I missed it so much.

Ronnie Spector

Kill Rock Stars allowed me to put out a real genuine rock ‘n’ roll record.

Ronnie Spector

Most of the groups I worked with 30 years ago are either dead or dead broke. And it’s a shame.

Ronnie Spector

My honeymoon night was spent on the floor in the bathroom with my mother.

Ronnie Spector

No one has their own identity like the Ronettes did back in the day.

Ronnie Spector

So don’t get me wrong, I love my songs, and I still love hearing them. That’s history, baby.

Ronnie Spector

Stage performing is a dying art form.

Ronnie Spector

The people need to feel the music.

Ronnie Spector

Today, they’re just up there for the money, just packaged and be gone.

Ronnie Spector

We had the skirts with the slits up the side, sort of tough, sort of Spanish Harlem cool, but sweet too.

Ronnie Spector

Well, first of all, they’re all about the music and all I care about in my professional career is the music.

Ronnie Spector

When I do a concert and people put their hands in the air, they’re doing it on their own.
