Biography

Ron Mael (born Ronald David Mael, 12 August 1945, Culver City, California, USA), is an American musician and songwriter. He and his younger brother Russell Mael, make up the core of the pop duo Sparks. Ron plays keyboard and writes most of the songs. When the band hit the peak of its popularity in the 1970s, he was well-known for his strange appearance, often remaining motionless over his keyboard. His conservative clothes and unfashionable toothbrush moustache attracted much attention, as does his current pencil moustache. On stage, Ron alternates between playing the keyboard and engaging in comic mime routines, often in connection with projections on backdrop.

The pair appear as themselves in the 1976 disaster film Rollercoaster, performing live. They also appeared in episode twenty-two of season six of the Gilmore Girls.
