    Hammond, Ronnie (10th November 1949-Present)

    He is a singer who was a member of The Celtics and WAR and worked with The Hampton Grease Band as engineer.  In 1972 he replaced Rodney Justo of Atlanta Rhythm Section and was with them until 1981, returning to them in 1989 and staying until 2001.   He was involved in the "Tributes Route" concerts for Lynyrd Skynyrd and also undertook solo work. He made a police officer shoot him by threatening him with a hammer and part of a guitar in 1998.  He had been battling with alcoholism and depression, and said it was a suicide attempt from which he survived.  He joined the ensemble group Voices of Classic Rock.
