Ronnie Romero left Lords of Black
3. January 2019
Ronnie Romero left Spanish progressive metal band Lords of Black. But he is still member of Rainbow.
His statement: ,,Just to inform that since some weeks ago I did leave my ‚job‘ as lead singer in LORDS OF BLACK. Almost five years of good music, great experiences and too much love and support from the fans around the world. Means a lot, so THANKS so much to all!! All the best to my ex-bandmates in their career“
Guitarist Tony Hernando said: ,,I just want to confirm that Ronnie Romero is no longer the singer for LORDS OF BLACK. This is something that I knew when I was already working on new LORDS OF BLACK music, and, as you can imagine, it’s something disappointing and truly heartbreaking.“
