Ronnie Lane was best known as the bassist for the Small Faces and Faces, but he was also a magnificent solo artist in his own right. Although his work with Slim Chance charted two semi-hits, Lane never achieved the commercial success that many thought he deserved. Nevertheless, Lane was highly regarded, both as a person and musician, amongst those he crossed paths with. I once spent a drunken night in Birmingham, England with Faces' keyboardist Ian McLagan and Billy Bragg, where every drink was lifted in Lane's honor, and he was fondly remembered in story after story. Enjoy this song from one of my heroes and raise a glass if you feel so inclined.
