Ronnie Hawkins

Profile:
Born 10. January 1935 in Huntsville, Arkansas (USA). He is a pioneering rock and roll musician, highly influencial in the introduction & growth of rock music in Canada. On advice from Conway Twitty, Hawkins toured Canada in 1958 where he found instant success in Hamilton, Ontario.
Making home in Peterborough Ontario, and touring as Ronnie Hawkins And The Hawks, Hawkins is legendary for his skill as a talent scout & mentor. His band, The Hawks (2), had an evolving lineup with members going on to successful careers elsewhere. Notable in his career was the December 1969 stay by John Lennon & Yoko Ono at his home in Mississauga, Ontario. Lennon signed his erotic "Bag One" lithographs during his stay there during the couple's campaign to promote world peace.
His achievements include induction into Canada's Walk of Fame in 2002, in recognition of his lifetime contribution to music and his generous support of the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario and other charitable organizations. He was inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame in 2004, and in 2013, Hawkins was made an Honourary Officer of the Order of Canada.
