“I still don’t know what took him to the edge because at that stage he had said to me that he had never met a woman that he felt that way about.”
The Simply the Best singer gave up her American citizenship in 2013 and has lived in Europe with her husband Erwin Bach since 1995. Bach is a German record producer.
Ronnie, who followed in his parent’s footsteps was a dedicated musician like both his parents. He played in a band called Manufactured Funk.
