Biography

Ronnie Burns (born Ronald Leslie Burns on 8 September 1946 in Melbourne), is an Australian pop singer.

He began singing with the group, The Flies, in 1964. The Flies drew heavily on The Beatles’ musical and fashion influences. They supported The Rolling Stones in January 1965.

During this time he befriended Australian music guru Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum. The two were famously ejected from The Beatles’ 1964 Australian tour for being ‘too enthusiastic’.

He later supported artists such as Peter, Paul & Mary, and the Bee Gees. In the 1990’s he formed, a trio with fellow Australian 1960’s pop icons called Cotton, Morris & Burns, including Russell Morris and Daryll Cotton.

Burns currently lives with his wife in Tasmania and tours the speaking circuit. In 1998, he and his wife founded Appin Hall Children’s Foundation, a refuge for children with chronic illness and orphans of war.
