Some mistake me for a fan of Ronnie,
Yet I'm way older than this rookie.
Part of me like to fly and sting,
But the journey hurts my feet.
Don't be tricked into thinking I am fun,
Only the name of my doing will make you smile.
Come, you'll make my trip sooner or later,
But good luck crawling through them nine.
Who am I?
First hint :
The answer is a person that existed
Second hint :
the title is a big hint.
Added two lines to make it easier.
I enjoyed making this riddle so I am offering it to you, let me know if this is too broad, but there is one and only solution.
