from Soundgenerator.com:-

Ronnie Wood has taken a shining interest in the world of stamps in a bid to stay on the wagon.

The Rolling Stones guitarist and solo star is a keen artist and has encorperated stamps into his pastime - both collecting and painting them - to stay off drink, The Sun newspaper reports.

A source reveals: "He is fascinated by it. Since he's out of rehab and trying to stay on the straight and narrow he has to find things to occupy his brain.

"He gets assistants to go to specialist shops trying to buy the best stamps. He's very proud of his collection."

When you have millions of dollar's collecting stuff like stamps is boring.

whatever helps him in his bid to stay dry, is fine by me.
Perhaps we should toss Penny Black's onto the b-stage, when he plays.

I thought he had started with kickboxing. Didn't he do that in 2002?

Well, I am glad he is sober.

His playing on this tour though has resembled something more like 3rd class or bulk mail.

Any stamp collector is dreaming of getting rare stamps. So money is no limit for stamp collection. The more money you have the "better" and rarer stamps you can buy. I was always dreaming of buying "Norway number one" - any stamp collector's dream in Norway, a stamp without "tags" - but you must be rich to afford it. Same with collection coins. Same with collectin anything in fact. So it is certainly not boring to collect and have a lot of money to spend. If you don't have that much money to spend you collect more ordinary stamps, like birds, a country (missing the older expensive ones) or some other group of stamps.

I used to have a coin collection, but I traded it in for Stones tickets. Ditto for my collection of paper money as well.
