We are sad to report that Capitol records industry veteran Ronnie Johnson passed away yesterday from a heart attack. Johnson and his mother, the legendary Irene Ware have always been big supporters of Radio Facts. We are very sad to hear the tragic news. Ronnie was one of the most down to earth sincerest people I’ve ever met in the industry and I just spoke with him before the holiday break about acts and projects he had coming in 08. He will be greatly missed. Our sincerest condolences go out to the family. Here is a recent picture of Ronnie accepting an award with Capitol Record’s MIMS

  5. I was trying to get a meeting with Ronnie for the new year to see if I could be apart of his team at Virgin.I heard so many nice things about him….The industry will miss him and also a nice person…Peace my man!…RIP..I wish I could have met you Face to Face.

  6. Ronnie Johnson was one in a million. We had big plans for pushing an independent project that I am working on with Steve and Capitol Records. Ronnie’s spirit was so warm and positive and he made you feel comfortable in his presence. We love you man, and will miss you dearly! My heart and my pain goes out to his family…
