RONNIE BURIED JUST HOURS AFTER DEATH
Thomas Quinn
The Mirror; London; Jun 6, 1997

Rock legend Ronnie Lane was buried within hours of losing his long battle with multiple sclerosis in his favourite black cowboy jacket and trousers.

Lane, 51, a Small Faces star of the 60s with Steve Marriott, died on Wednesday in Trinidad, Colorado, with third wife Susan at his side. Within hours, he was laid to rest at a ceremony attended by only his close family.

Pop pals worldwide hailed the talent behind hits like Itchycoo Park and Lazy Sunday - and the courage with which the East End-born bass guitarist fought MS.

Small Faces drummer, Kenny Jones, 48, who went on to join The Who, said: "Ronnie was an incredibly brave man.

"He's been wasting away for over 20 years, but he battled on to give hope to others as much as anything."

The Small Faces later became The Faces, fronted by Rod Stewart.

Stars like Stewart and Ronnie Wood stayed loyal to Ronnie, helping to pay medical bills.
