He’s the definition of a ‘songwriters’ songwriter’ – Elton John once said that Ron has the voice of an angel, Chris Martin duetted with him on “Gold In Them Hills”, Nick Hornby named a book after one of his songs, Bruce Springsteen used his version of the American classic “Comrade Fill No Glass For Me” as warm-up music on tour, Elvis Costello loves his work and has toured with him on several occasions, Bob Dylan has played his music on his celebrated Radio Hour show. Many stars have covered his songs including Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Elvis Costello and most recently Michael Bublé, whose multi-platinum album ‘Crazy Love’ features a duet with Ron on his song ‘Whatever It Takes’.
