Ronald "Ronnie" Leslie Burns AM
(born 8 September 1946, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia), is an Australian rock singer and guitarist. He fronted the Melbourne band The Flies in the early 1960s.

Burns became one of Australia's most popular male pop singers from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s.

His solo hit single, "Smiley", written by Jonny Young of "the Young Talent Time", peaked at number two on the Go-Set National Top 40 in 1970.

Burns had several minor national hits with most of Burns' 1967 material was written by The Bee Gees

Never play with guns..
On a trip to England, Burns' arrival at Gibb's flat, he gave his host a gift replica gun, as Burns was aware of his fondness for them. Gibb then took his guest downstairs to show him his gun collection.

Handing Burns a German Luger, Gibb uttered the words, "Careful, it has a hair trig...".

Before Gibb could finish what he was saying, the gun went off and its bullet parted his hair, missing his head by millimetres.

According to Burns, "Barry just went white"

On 10 June 2013 Burns was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia with the citation "For significant service to the community, particularly to children recovering from illness and trauma, and to the entertainment industry".
