Atlanta Rhythm Section Singer Ronnie Hammond Dies

(Rock AAA) Ronnie Hammond, singer with Southern Rock legends Atlanta Rhythm Section has died suddenly after being taken to his doctor's office by his wife in Monroe County, Georgia.

Hammond became ARS front man in 1972 after being spotted by band manager and co-songwriter/vocalist Buddie Buie whilst working as a sound engineer at the renowned Doraville Studios, and went on to feature in many of the bands biggest hits including Champagne Jam, Imaginary Lover and their crossover hit So Into You

His brother Steve, who was also in the band briefly, told the Atlanta Journal: "When he sang, he was on fire. The band was a close-knit group and they got along relatively well most of the time. Life on the road is challenging so there is going to be conflicts but, overall, they got along great. I think he would thank the Lord for allowing him the opportunity."
