Ronnie. I don\'t remember him as the rock star, his original Shirts days were legend when I first knew him, but as the badass sound engineer at CBGB. My mentor and my tormentor. A friend who would do anything for me while cursing me out or making me do stage AND sound while he hightailed it out the door only minutes after Hilly left for the evening to find oblivion at the notorious Mars Bar around corner. He always had a starring role in what ever insanity was in play when three or four or five or six bands later I\'d get there and anything, I mean absolutely ANYTHING could be going on by then. I owe him much and miss him many and I\'d wish him rest, but I\'m afraid he\'d be bored.
