Faces Star Ron Dies After 21yr MS Battle
by Steve Atkinson
The Mirror; London; Jun 5, 1997

Pop legend Ronnie Lane died yesterday at the age of 51 after a courageous 21-year fight against a crippling disease.

The former Faces bassist defied the agony of multiple sclerosis to keep his place in the spotlight, playing alongside greats like Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones.

Publicist Charlie Comer said last night: "Despite incredible pain, they just couldn't stop him playing the bass guitar he loved. While his body wasted away he carried on almost as if nothing had happened.

"Every time he struck a chord you could see he was in torment."

Ronnie, who died peacefully at his new home in Trinidad, Colorado, was at the peak of his fame with The Faces in the late 1970s when MS first struck.

Although confined to a wheelchair for a number of years, Ronnie fought back to appear in a recent music TV special with his old pal Rod Stewart.
