RIP Ronny

The pop singer Ronny has died.

I just found out reading Bertrand Van Wonterghem's Euro Bis #17 that German pop singer Ronny passed away last August.
The composer and producer, whose real name was Wolfgang Roloff, died on August 18, 2011 at the age of 81. Ronny was a celebrity in the 1960s with songs like "Little Anna Bell" and "Oh My Darling Caroline" from which he had great success. Ronny was born in Bremen, Germany on March 10, 1930 and was a member of such groups as 'Valerie' and 'Bob and Eddy in the 1950s

As a producer he made Heintje a child star. Since the seventies he produced in his studio in Bremen Oberneuland. There he made recording with such famous bands like Münchener Freiheit, Mister President und Fettes Brot. Also The Rudi Carell Show originated in the studio.

Ronny sang "Kein Gold am Blue River" for the German score of "$5,000 on the Ace" (1964) and "Kenn ein Land" for "Black Eagle of Santa Fe: (1965) for which he also appeared as a singing cowboy.
