And then I’ve got the solo concert in Atlantic City, where I’ve got some old pals like Steve Jordan, Chuck Leavell, Bernard Fowler [performing with me at the show]. It’s going to be some great music and great musicians.

1) I'm not floored that its apparently not the Faces at this point. But I will
be floored if Mick Taylor is not part of it.

2) How did this thread come un-stickied?

Interesting info from Stonesdoug/Shidoobee - This gig was supposed to be a New Barbarians reunion with Keith - but Keith went on vacation...now that would've been something great.

excerpt from a nice long article in the Atlantic City Weekly:

(Not Just Like) A Rolling Stone

Which brings us to Wednesday, April 18, when Wood says he will visit the
Golden Nugget — along with bandmate Steve Jordan — to personally look into
the sound requirements for his gig there Saturday night.

“The guys at the Golden Nugget were so nice,” says Wood. “They said, ‘Hey,
take our ballroom.’ And there’s also a smaller venue there ... I don’t know
much about it. And I said, ‘Yeah, I’d love to play a little small, cozy
concert.’ And then they said, ‘Well, take the bigger room.’ And I said,
‘Well, OK, I’m going to check on that [with regard to the sound].’ I’m going
with Steve Jordan [on Wednesday] to make sure it sounds good for the people.”

Wood’s artwork will also be a facet of the Atlantic City concert. Some of his
original works and re-worked paintings, the latter of which he calls
“Uniques,” — “I use images that I’ve done before and come back to them and
make them [new] originals. It’s quite an interesting way of re-presenting my
art” — will be on display.

“There will be some original hand-picked paintings there in the Golden
Nugget,” he adds.

The art show in New York is a mini-retrospective, along with some new works
and Wood’s “Uniques.” Wood says the exhibition was the initial reason for his
spring 2012 American adventure. The Golden Nugget show came up later.

“Well, it came as a sideline to my art [exhibition],” says Wood. “Because I
always like to paint and I always like to play and people kept asking me to
do a concert, and I thought, ‘Well, I didn’t come over here to do that, I
came over here to present my art, but while I’m at it, OK!’”

Woody has selected an all-star band for the A.C. show. He says the songs will
come from many periods of his prolific musical career.

“In Atlantic City I’m going to play a concoction of songs from my solo album
career, and different tributes to the Stones and Faces,” says Wood. “I’ve got
a great band for [the show]. I’ve got Willy Weeks, the bass player that I got
from Donny Hathaway 38 years ago; it’s going to be great to get together
with him again. And I’ve got Steve Jordan on drums, and Bernard Fowler
helping on the vocals, and Chuck LaVelle on keyboards, and a young guy named
Andy Wallace who I brought over from England.”


Wood says fans in Atlantic City can expect to hear one of his solo career
highlights, Bob Dylan’s “Seven Days.” (LISTEN: Ronnie Wood sings a part of
"Seven Days" in our interview.)

“Oh, I’m [definitely] going to play that in Atlantic City!” says Wood, just
before breaking into a Dylan voice for an a cappella version of the song,
which he originally recorded for his 1979 album Gimme Some Neck.

WE WERE instructed by his people not to ask any questions about the Rolling Stones or Sally Humphreys, his new, younger-by-three-decades girlfriend. But hey, those subjects were not why Ronnie Wood agreed to chat up the Daily News in the first place.

Instead, the veteran guitarist, who just last weekend was inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the British rock band Faces, called to gab about his Saturday-night set at Golden Nugget Atlantic City.

The show is notable for a couple of reasons: It is not part of a tour, but a one-off performance by a guy who seldom goes out on his own. In fact, the Nugget show is his first solo gig in the U.S.

And considering his 37-year tenure as a member of the Rolling Stones (thereby making him the royalist of rock royalty), one would expect him to plug in his guitar at the Borgata or Revel, which these days all but have the AyCee monopoly on cooler-than-cool musical bookings. But Woody, as he is known far and wide, is playing Golden Nugget because he was asked to by pals.

“Some good friends of ours [including casino owner Tilman Fertitta] operate the place,” explained Wood, in a voice burnished by decades of cigarettes and whiskey (think an intelligible Keith Richards). Wood has been bunking in the penthouse of a luxe Manhattan hotel while promoting his paintings (check out his work at ronniewood.com), so geography wasn’t an issue.

“They said, ‘While you’re doing your artwork, how about playing Golden Nugget?’ I [figured], why not? If I like it, maybe I’ll play [the Golden Nugget] in Vegas, too. I’m just putting my toe in the water.”

According to Wood, who first appeared on the rock-music radar as guitar hero Jeff Beck’s bassist on the latter’s 1968 album “Beck-Ola” (which featured vocals by Wood’s future Faces teammate Rod Stewart), his repertoire will feature a “potpourri” of numbers representing the various stages of his career. He mentioned by name the Faces signature “Stay With Me,” a couple of relatively obscure Stone’s numbers — “Black Limousine” and “Pretty Beat Up” — and the thrilling cover of Bob Dylan’s “Seven Days” from his underrated 1979 LP, “Gimme Some Neck.”

Wood also will handle lead vocal chores, but he won’t be a “Stone alone” when he hits the Nugget stage. He has assembled an impressive backing unit that includes drummer Steve Jordan (Richards’ X-pensive Winos, “Saturday Night Live” studio band); bassist Willie Weeks (David Bowie, George Harrison, Billy Joel); pianist Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers Band, Stones) and singer Bernard Fowler (Herbie Hancock, Stones). To answer the most obvious question, Wood’s dear friend Richards is not expected.

“If he was at home [in Connecticut], he’d be in my band,” said Wood. “But he’s down in the islands.”


As unexpected as Wood’s Nugget show may be, there are those who would argue it is even more surprising that Wood is still around in 2012 to play there. Although Richards was always celebrated as the Rolling Stones’ partier-in-chief, Wood’s decades-long battles with drink and drugs have been well-chronicled. He’s been sober for roughly two years.

“It’s been great,” he enthused. “Every day is full of adventure. There were things I used to think of while using [drugs] as threats. Now I can focus on them.” The only drawback to living the straight-and-narrow life is a lack of adequate time to engage everything that comes his way.

“I’ve hardly had three hours off since I straightened up,” he lamented. “There’s not enough hours in the day.”

The reason the Stones’ plans for this, their 50th anniversary year, were declared out-of-bounds for the interview stems from a dustup that began last week. It seems Mick Jagger got his knickers in a knot after Wood was quoted in the media saying the band was heading into the recording studio.

Earlier this week, Wood told Billboard magazine: “I heard from Jagger; he’s going, ‘What the hell?! We don’t know anything yet!’ And I said, ‘You know what [the media] are like. I just expressed my personal view; I would love to go into the studio.’ Then they took it all wrong.”

So instead of asking Wood flat out about the Stones’ plans, we took a roundabout route, suggesting he merely tell readers anything he can about what’s on the docket for the “World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band.”

Although there will apparently be no new album or tour this year, Wood acknowledged the Stones will hardly be out of sight and mind: “We got exhibitions. We got documentaries. We got books. We’ll see what happens after that.”
