Ronnie Burns (born Ronald Leslie Burns on 8 September 1946 in Melbourne), is an Australian pop singer. He began singing with the beat 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'.
