On This Day April 14th in Rock & Roll History

On this day April 14, 1968 producer Phil Spector marries Ronnie Bennett of the Ronettes.  Her mother attends. Her sister Estelle and cousin Nedra (the other members of the Ronettes) are not invited.  Ronnie divorces Phil in 1972 citing several instances of alleged cruelty. He now sits in a prison cell, a convicted murderer. Prior to the marriage, Philles Records releases the Ronettes’ 45 “Is This What I Get For Loving You.” Maybe it should have been recorded after the marriage. With picture sleeve it can sell for $150.00 today.
