Prior to MTB, he played with Franklin in Lovejoy and later with Toy's bassist Tony Heatherly in a band called Carolina. After that band's break-up Ronnie and Franklin formed Garfeel Ruff with Ronnie's brother, Rick. The band recorded 2 albums; their self-titled debut in '78 and Born To Play, though it wasn't released until 1985. They also had a song on the soundtrack of "The Hitter", a B-film starring Ron "Superfly" O'Neal. Ronnie also played with Toy in the mid-80's and cut some tracks with him. Besides being a great piano and keyboard player he is a very powerful and soulful singer. He now resides in Nashville.
