Just heard the sad news of the passing of Ron ‘Bones’ Brettell. Bones was a member of Circus, Clout and Hotline. He had at least 4 songs chart on the SA Top 20 where he was producer. These were:
- Love Hurts – Mattisson Borthers (7 weeks peak of 13)
- You’re So Good To Me – Hotline (12 weeks peak of 8)
- Feel So Strong – Steve Kekana & Hotline (15 weeks peak of 6)
- Jabulani – Hotline (16 weeks peak of 9)
He would also produce song for The Rockets and Ali Katt as well as helping write and produce the superfunky ‘Sneezing Song’ by Hey Fever.
RIP Ron ‘Bones’ Brettell.
