The Ronettes

The two Bennett sisters and their cousin Nedra started a Frankie Lymon-like vocal group when barely into their teens. Signed by Phil Spector in 1963, they had five Top 40 hits, released a single studio album, and toured Britain in 1964, with The Rolling Stones as their opening act. Later, they opened for The Beatles on their final US tour in 1966, but it was almost their final act, and they split up in 1967. Ronnie Spector reformed the band in 1973, without her sister or cousin, but it was not a success, and in 1975 Spector embarked on her solo career.

 

The longevity data for the band's classic line-up is shown below.
