Ronaldo Lindenberg von Schilgen Cintra Nogueira[1] (born July 17, 1944, Niterói, Rio de Janeiro), known by his artistic name Ronnie Von, is a Brazilian singer and television show host.


He became known in the 1960s associated with the Jovem Guarda. Ronnie Von currently presents a show called Todo Seu for the Gazeta channel.

Biography[edit]

Some of his greater successes include the hits Meu Bem - a Portuguese version of The Beatles' Girl - and A Praça. He quickly earned the nickname O pequeno príncipe, or Little Prince, after participating in an interview with Hebe Camargo. Ronnie started hosting his own television program in 1966, O Pequeno Mundo de Ronnie Von. Os Mutantes became a regular guest band on the show. Besides opening the door for the band mutants, Ronnie Von left with Gilberto Gil and Caetano appear on the show regularly (began, Tropicalism). During this period, the press tried to create a supposed rivalry between him and Roberto Carlos.

In 1968, he released a self-titled album that broke from the naïveté of the movement and ventured in more psychedelic and experimental sounds. Following this release came A Misteriosa Luta do Reino de Parassempre contra o império de Nuncamais (1969) and A Máquina Voadora (1970). Though it did not meet with much success, today Ronnie's experimental work is being rediscovered by a new generation of rock listeners, rendering him a high degree of underground cult status.[2]
