Ronald Frederick "Ronnie" Lane (1 April 1946 - 4 June 1997) was an English singer, songwriter and bass player (nicknamed "Plonk" while in the Small Faces and later "Three-Piece" in The Faces) best known for his membership in two prominent English rock bands, the Small Faces (1965-69) and Faces (1970-72).

Ronnie Lane was born in the East End of London. After quitting school at the age of 16, Lane met Kenney Jones at a local pub and they formed the group they named "The Outcasts". Initially playing lead guitar, it was quickly decided that he should switch to bass guitar. While visiting the J60 Music Bar in Manor Park, London with his father in order to buy a bass guitar, Lane met Steve Marriott who was working there. Lane bought the bass and went back to Marriott's house after work to listen to records, where Marriott introduced Lane to his Motown and Stax collection. Lane and Marriott set out to put together a band, and recruited friends Jones and Jimmy Winston, who switched from guitar to the organ. Marriott was chosen to be the vocalist.

Lane left the Faces in late 1972 and formed his own band, Slim Chance, in 1973 to record the hit single "How Come" (UK No. 11) and "The Poacher" (UK No. 36), then the album Anymore For Anymore, showcasing his own blend of British rock music, folk, and country music.
