THE late, great Ronnie Lane tragically died from multiple sclerosis back in 1997, aged just 51 - but his music will live on forever. Ronnie was the creative Iynchpin of the Faces,one of the all-time great singer-songswriters. Rod Stewart may, have been the on-stage star but Lane's melodies and musicanship were sublime.
When the Faces broke up, Ronnie went back to his roots playing pubs and toured circus-style with his band Slim Chance, and the spirit ,of those times has been lovingly recreated by a latter-day version.
Charlie Hart, Colin Davey, Steve Bingham, Steve Simpson and Alun Davies are 64 carat gold musicians, with a new retrospective CD, The Show-Goes On. There's also a new DVD re-telling the Ronnie lane saga with all the 10s legends - catch this band live while you can. One For The Road, Kuschty Rye, Flags and Banners and Ooh La La were gloriously true to the genius of Ronnie Lane.
Slim Chance play Backstage at the Green Hotel, Kinross, Scotland on Sat 21st July. Booking line 01577 863467. www.mundellmusic.com
