For the first time, a member of the world’s most famous rock ‘n’ roll band tells his—and their—story. Raw, unsanitized, nasty and fascinating. An incredible journey.

The first of his family to be born on dry land, Ronnie Wood came from a family of water gypsies and was raised in a council flat near Heathrow Airport. Growing up only wanting to paint and play music, Wood was always talented. And in the 1960’s, he was often in the right place at precisely the right time—becoming the guitar player for everyone from the Birds to Jeff Beck to the Faces and then to Rod Stewart . But Wood and his guitar-playing became super-charged when he joined The Rolling Stones. They were rock royalty from their earliest days, and from the first time Wood performed with the band, careening down New York City’s Fifth Avenue on a flatbed truck Wood has been at the center of the court and in the middle of the ferment. No band has ever combined the Stones’ success--both artistically and materially—with their longevity. No other band has ever survived the creativity and clashes of such big personalities.

But with success came excess—and as mayhem and hysteria followed Ronnie on his adventures through the extremes of rock ‘n roll, the drugs got harder and his relationships—especially with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the women in his life—became increasingly complex.

A fascinating portrait not just of the Stones, but of the greatest rockers of the 1960’s and beyond—from Eric Clapton to Rod Stewart, Jimmy Page to Keith Moon, Jimi Hendrix to Pete Townshend—RONNIE is a rich, revelatory book. Readers have never had a view of the rock world like this before.

??? Not just this post, but also in [www.iorr.org]. What next? "Mikey" Jagger, maybe "Charley" Watts? The guy's been around since pre-Stones, like Rod Stewart and even earlier. Over the short time of 50 years, some of us have come to know him as "Ronnie" rather than "Ronney" (ahem, also check out the title on the front of the book). Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen the spelling "Ronney" before. All veryconfused smiley

That book is interesting but dear old Ron (bless his heart) is full of sh-t as a Christmas turkey on so much haha....some yarns that can rival any "Keith" stories people on here like to laugh about!...as in "Grant put Zep together and wanted Ron for guitarist in the group originally, not Page".....haha now that's a knee slapper...
