"a spokesman did say that he should be fit an ready for the 1st night."
What a dumb comment - he's not a boiled egg, this clearly is a desporate situation that wont go away. He was never properly 'on the wagon' anyway. Here's Jo Woods take on the situation -
"RONNIE WOOD's wife JO is devastated by the ROLLING STONES star's drinking problem, and has had to attend counselling sessions to ease the strain.
The 51-year-old ex-model now refuses to get involved when the guitar hero hits the bottle, as she has realised there is nothing she can do about it.
But she doubts the START ME UP rocker will ever overcome his alcoholism.
She says, "Ronnie knows he's got a problem. He feels really bad about it.
"When he goes on one of his vodka benders, I just take a back seat. I think he'd rather I didn't go on at him about it.
"I used to get at him but now he is happier that I don't. That doesn't make him drink less but I can't spend my life feeling responsible.
"The children have witnessed it. His behaviour changes and he becomes irrational and that's hard for everyone.
"I used to get very upset, but I've been to counselling and I now understand that there's nothing I can do about it."
