People Magazine - Interview feature:
Ronnie Spector’s Victory Lap: The Original Rock Queen Talks New Music and Reviving the Ronettes By Jordan Runtagh, 6/24/17
People Magazine’s Exclusive Premiere of ‘LOVE POWER’:
No Depression – Interview
Ronnie Spector on Falling in Love with Santa
By Gary Stoller 12/2017
Other lengthy features include an interview with the Publisher of M Music & Musicians Magazine, a conversation with No Depression (link above,) multiple regional tour interviews and more. Spector will also be the cover story of LI Woman Magazine’s March issue. A Quote Sheet follows.
As a seminal force in Sixties Rock, Spector’s swagger, moxie and trademark voice (still instantly recognizable from the first note,) defined an era. Now in her sixth decade as a performer, Spector has reached a new level of cultural significance. Critical respect is at its peak, and she continues to thrill -- inspiring and empowering a new generation of fans as an enduring, transcendent figure, who has overcome adversity to build a career that is nothing short of remarkable. Much as B.B. King came to embody the blues, or Chuck Berry was to early Rock ‘n Roll, Spector has solidified her status as the Rosetta Stone for female rock performers of today.
