Title: The "All Ronnie" thread
Post by LadyJane on Dec 18th, 2009 at 6:50pm
More of the same with some new twists.

Have The Stones dumped Ronnie Wood over his tawdry romance?

Doesn't she look dewy and radiant? With her blonde hair stylishly backcombed and a pile of Topshop bracelets adorning her slender arms, Ekaterina Ivanova could be someone's daughter celebrating her A-levels - rather than a Russian 'artist' announcing her separation from Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood in this week's Hello! magazine.

Her interview is presented in a very 'Hello!' style. In fact, the reality of the 21-year-old's liaison with alcoholic Wood - who left his wife of 23 years for Ekaterina, then fell off the wagon in spectacular style, only to be observed dragging her along the street in Claygate, Surrey, and threatening her with a lighted cigarette - is sordid and unpleasant.

But Ekaterina, also known as Katya, manages to coat the whole tawdry story in sugar. 'We used to draw together, dance, joke,' she says. 'The whole thing started off like a fairy tale, but then it felt like an evil fairy tale. I'd be trapped there with an evil goblin king.'




In the interview, Katya reveals not very much about life with Ronnie - who is 41 years her senior - and doesn't seem to waste a shred of sympathy on him or feel a twinge of guilt about her part in ending his happy and supportive marriage with Jo, 54.

Their one pastime, says Katya, was watching rubbish satellite TV together - but Ronnie was often 'very drunk', especially towards the end of the romance. He used to have violent tantrums and do silly impressions of her voice.

'In the end I think he needed to be mothered. I think that's the kind of person he needs to be with. I tried and tried but it didn't make me happy,' she says - with the selfishness often displayed by the very young.

That Jo Wood had selflessly been performing precisely that function for Ronnie - and that it had made both of them happy - seems not to occur to her.

And so, after 18 months, she's off. Katya was this week trying to sell her story, once again, for more money.

Her PR adviser, Phil Hall, hints there is plenty which she hasn't been able to tell, for legal reasons - presumably because it touches on allegations of domestic violence. 'She has a lot more to say, if she chooses to,' he tells me.

But, as Katya exits, what of Ronnie? He doesn't, it transpires, have any great dispute with her version of their disastrous romance. But it is a liaison which has had severe consequences for him.

Not only has it cost him his marriage but, as we shall see, Ronnie's dalliance with Katya will probably end up costing him his place in the Rolling Stones.

David Rigg, Ronnie's spokesman, told me: 'We are not going to comment (on Katya's interview). Ronnie will not be making any statements or giving any interviews.'



Rigg confirms Ronnie has no professional engagements of any sort lined up. In fact, his diary seems to be entirely blank.
Considering this, it is perhaps surprising that he has turned down Jo's generous offer to come back to the old marital home for a Christmas lunch.

He could have joined his wife, children and their extended family around the table at their home, Holmwood, a hunting lodge which backs onto Richmond Park in South-West London.

But I'm told that last Sunday, when Jo offered him the chance to come back for lunch, Ronnie asked her: 'What about the other 364 days of the year?' He quite clearly wants his wife back - but the answer to that, at least for now, is no. It seems Ronnie is truly on his own.

The trendy friends he used to have, such as model Kate Moss and party organiser Fran Cutler, stopped seeing him when he was with Katya because she complained they looked down on her. She used to say they made her feel like the Soho waitress she once was.

Ronnie no longer speaks to bandmate Keith Richards either, despite the fact the pair were great drink and drug buddies for years. Friends tell me they fell out some time ago.

Even Mick Jagger is steering clear. I have been told he is looking for a new guitarist for the Rolling Stones and, despite the fact the Stones have always denied there will be a tour in 2010, it is now looking like a distinct possibility.



And if the rumours are true and another money-spinning Stones tour does go ahead, you can bet it will do so without unreliable Ronnie.

'It's one thing to say "Let's have the Stones frightening the grannies, let's all be debauched and wild", but it's just not acceptable to have one seen choking his girlfriend,' said a friend of the band's.

'There are two things you can't be seen to do, which is hit women and get involved with under-age girls. Thanks to Ronnie and Bill Wyman (who seduced and went on to marry 13-year-old Mandy Smith), Mick has had a full house now.'

It's all such a contrast to the calm days when Jo was Ronnie's loyal linchpin.

She used to be on the Stones' payroll as Ronnie's 'dresser' and would come along on every tour, cooking him organic beans on toast and free-range poached eggs on a little Primus stove. You could argue that she was almost as much a member of the band as he was.

Jagger had sided with Jo from the beginning. 'Mick tried to intervene right at the start of the relationship with Katya,' says the friend.

'There was a plan to set up Katya in a flat in Tottenham Court Road, get Ronnie to rehab and then lead him back to Jo.
'Mick has always relied on Jo to be his conduit through to Ronnie - he has relied on her to get Ronnie to work, to keep him well enough to pass a medical for the tour.


'Without Jo, Ronnie would never have managed to go on tour, you can't do it unless you have insurance, and you won't get insurance without the medical. It's always been up to Jo to get him through all that.

'All communication has gone through Jo for years, so now Mick has really washed his hands of Ronnie. The feeling is that he can't come back after this one. Ronnie's always been a bit lost and, without Jo, nobody can reach him.'

After the violent incident with Katya, police bailed Ronnie until January 10 on suspicion of assault. Who knows whether he will face charges.

He is said to be 'in a bad way', drinking heavily on his own, with no one to stop him. He is a lifelong alcoholic, has been to rehab at least seven times and has been told often that if he does not stop drinking, it will kill him.

Ronnie is, though, in the grip of a downward spiral which is familiar to his loved ones, who have seen him on this path before.
He does not answer his telephone and he does not respond to emails, not even from Jo. The only person he sees, I'm told, is Jamie, Jo's son from a previous relationship.

This is quite a surprise because Jamie used to manage the rocker, but he was sacked earlier this year when Ronnie was under Katya's influence.

But Jamie still loves Ronnie and must be a forgiving sort because he visits Ronnie in his rented Surrey home to see how he is getting on. Ronnie also sees one friend - an artist named Bruce - and his chauffeur. Beyond that, there seems to be no one at all.
'Katya has had a really damaging effect on Ronnie,' says one of Jo's friends.

'Jo had helped to keep him integrated socially and to keep him in with the Stones and in with his friends and in with his family.

'The view from here is that with Katya it was all just booze and sex - and he ditched everything for that.'

The Wood family blame Ekaterina for 'isolating' Ronnie and are desperately worried about his health. Jo keeps on telling friends she just wants to get Ronnie to see a doctor. She has asked him to, but he has slipped beyond her control.

Although Jo says she is happy - liberated and reborn now she does not have to take care of Ronnie's every need, put up with his moods or take responsibility for moderating his drinking - people who know her think she may yet take him back.
One close friend of Jo's put the chances of that at 50-50 this week.

The fact Jo has not found a man since they split last July is significant. Jo has always loved Ronnie deeply and is now having to ask herself whether she can make the sacrifice necessary to save him again.

'Jo has always treated Ronnie like one of her children and you don't ever stop loving a child, no matter what they do,' said a friend.
Officially, Jo will not say anything. Her spokeswoman Gemma Waters says she 'wouldn't know at all' if a reunion is on the cards. 'Jo is just busy planning for Christmas, she says. 'I know that Ronnie isn't going for Christmas dinner,' she told me.

'He was asked, but he definitely isn't going.'

That Jo seems to be having cold feet over her plans to sell their family home and move into a bachelor-girl flat does, however, appear suggestive.

'I don't know whether she is really going to put the house on the market after New Year. It has been a happy home and she has loved living in it,' says Gemma.

Selling up would be a definitive way of moving on, and although Jo talks a lot about doing just that, the people close to her think she doesn't quite have the ruthless edge necessary to cut her ties in this way. Especially as it is so clear that Ronnie is in a crisis.
Ronnie isn't in rehab, but it is obvious he needs to go. He has been told he has emphysema, but continues to smoke. He has been told another few months of drinking will kill him, and yet he continues with that, too.

Ronnie has made and lost a fortune at least twice over but remains helplessly naive about money. And now he is drinking again, there is little prospect of him earning more. His family suspect Katya did pretty well out of him - he is a generous man.
As she herself said in Hello!: 'He's generous with everybody. He'll buy stuff for people he's just met.'

There is a theory that Katya's mother Irina prodded Ronnie into making generous gifts to her daughter - such as buying a car, setting up a bank account for her, giving her constant gifts and so on.

They think Irina used to encourage this generosity by telling Ronnie: 'If it wasn't for you, Katya would be at university - look at what she has given up for you.'

That said, Katya does not seem to have exited the liaison with much more than she had when she went into it. Her effect, though, on Ronnie has been immense and, beyond any doubt, destructive.

After going through rehab last summer, he fairly quickly started to drink wine again and some months ago moved back on to vodka and brandy.

He knows it is bad for him - as he told an interviewer a couple of months ago: 'Mr Hyde comes out, and the older I get the worse I get.'

Katya certainly never seems to have tried very hard to keep Ronnie sober.

They would start off on a binge by drinking a lot together, then she would decide she'd had enough and Ronnie would just want to keep on going. Inevitably they would argue. She was, in the early days, a heavy boozer like him.

'We would have the best nights out, then I would know how to stop and he wouldn't,' she told Hello! - demonstrating an ignorance about alcoholism which almost takes your breath away.

Ronnie is reckless about his health. He's been told so often he's about to die that he doesn't take any notice of the doctors. He calls himself a 'permanent teenager' but his family think, at 62, he's heading for the grave.

Is there anyone, you wonder, who can save him?

While there may be some truth hidden in this article, I found the style in which is was written pathetic. The author of this piece casts blame on a 20 year old girl for breaking up a marriage. Isn´t that weird? It's Ronnie following his dick after all, right?

But lets keep our fingers crossed for Mick pulling out his bandmate out of the gutter once more for old times sake. For Ronnies sake rather than for the sake of the band.

Where did that come from, did you write it?

In any cas, wow...my guess is that if Jo doesn't take him back, the Stones will be getting together for his funeral pretty soon. Can't be easy for her after what he put her through, but she probably wouldn't forgive herself if he kicked the bucket sooner rather than later. Looks like he's interested too...

It's been said before, but what a shame/waste, I recently came across a mode made DVD of a concert in Spain (San Sebastian ?) from the 2007 tour and he played the CYHMK solo amazingly well, much better than in 2002, I didn't even know they had played it during the 2007 tour of Europe.

Probably some serious exaggeration in that article, but maybe some truth in too.

Ronnie could well turn out to be remembered as the stupidest man in the history of rock n roll.

Gets handed the dream job of joining the biggest, greatest and richest band in the world - and still manages to blow it.

Gets the choice in the late 70s of becoming a fully paid up member or taking an annual salary for a long term basis - and picks the wrong option, almost leaving himself bankrupt.

Makes a multi million pound fortune several times over - and squanders it every couple of years due to his multiple addictions and a lack of financial acumen which would be akin to that of a ten year old.

Gets told on several occasions that he has to give up smoking and drinking or he'll die - and still persists in drinking like a fish and smoking like a chimney.

Meets probably the only woman who would willingly put up with constant drunkenness and spells of rehab for 25 years - and ditches her for a 20 year old mentally unstable bunny boiler who works as a 'cocktail waitress' in a club which later gets raided as a vice den.

How much babysitting can one man need?

Pitiful.  :(

It's unfortunately getting harder to envisage anything other than a horrible ending to all of this.

Didn't know this, what I remember reading about that period business wise is that Ronnie was advised to get a manager if he wanted to get paid by the Stones and that one of them was chased away by Keith, possibly when they were rehearsing for the 1981 tour...

I've avoided commenting on this board about it out of respect, but Ronnie really has embarrased himself with this mess. He has screwed up and ruined everything that he cares/cared about. As the slogan says, The Stones Withstand, but Ronnie seems to be crumbling.

His 20-year-old looks good in that beach picture though.

Me and my friend Gena have been talking and it seems odd that many people that are given great success decide to throw it all away instead of making it a vehicle toward achieving their personal goals.  I mean, given Ronnie situation, he could really be happy, one would presume. Go bike around the coast of England, save the African elephant, collect art and music and distribute it, discover a new plant and propagate it, start up an animal shelter, pay for us fools that pick up trash on the great seneca highway, buy a piece of land and preserve it for posterity; photograph the restrooms of Europe what EVER besides self destruction. I mean, we gotta die eventually, why not LIVE while we ware here??????? He has the AVENUE>.. many of us do not

People destroy themselves because they feel unworthy.  Look at Brian Wilson.

The Stones will not replace Ronnie.  My read is if he's not in shape to tour, there won't be one.  Hate to be negative, but it's too late to change the front line or Charlie.

I feel sorry for Ronnie in many ways.  It's one thing to fall flat on your face.  We all have.  But to do it in public with people you will never know watching.  Well, it has to make the recovery from the fall that much more difficult.

If the allegations are true and charges brought - only the other Stones know what his professional future will be.  His personal life just seems an utter mess.  I hope for his sake that he can find a way back from the brink.  Cause otherwise it's just too sad.

Such a pathetically sad story. Imagine what any of us would give up to have the talent and opportunities in life Ronnie has had? The future is hard to see as far as the band is concerned but maybe Ronnie can rally himself for one last triumph over his deamons. They won't replace him with anyone who would show Keith's evident decline either though Jeff Beck seems so right for the job now.

Hard to say, as the band havent done anything in public together for so long (cant imagine it helped, however - Jo has (justifiably) been highly regarded in the Stones camp as she's been so good for Ronnie), but Keith & Ronnie's relationship hasnt really been the same since the start of the Licks tour. Apparently Ronnie's then-sobriety and reluctance to party like he used to was a source of frustration for his 'big brother'...  ::)

Ronnie and Keith cooled about six ro so years ago when Wood was being very open about being on the wagon and Keith lost his drink n drug buddy. (I believe Keith was still enjoying coke regularly back then)

Then with Ronnie's poor treatment of Joe - who it has been said Keith liked, that pushed Keith away even further.  

Now we have Mick attempting to police between the two, and appearing to have grown much closer to Charlie (and I hear Bill) in recent years.

If the money wasn't so good, and the chance for teh ego-feeding tens of thousands of screaming fans during the performance, Mick would have dumped this drama years ago.

He might do that yet...

Ronnie could be one of those personalities that doesn't care he's throwing it all away. He had it, he basked in it, now fuck it, it's all gone, it was a good run. He may delight in the fact that people can't believe he's throwing it away.

Sometimes things, especially art, is more important to the observer then it is the artist.

My friend Zack, I agree 100%. I can't see any such big change in the Stones at this point of time.

Post by Gazza on Dec 19th, 2009 at 4:49pm
'Quick' rehabs are no fucking good. They just delay the inevitable trainwreck that invariably follows a few months later. And a rehab mightn't be enough to convince any investor in a tour that hes worth the risk from an insurance perspective.

How many rehabs has he had now? Seven? Eight?

And they usually last a couple of weeks - he treats them as if its a holiday in Butlins.

That suggests a man who either isn't serious about sorting his problems out or is in total denial.

Maybe the realisation that on this occasion he's TOTALLY fucked his life up - no loyal long-suffering wife to run back to, a family who are mostly estranged from him and no band if he doesnt change the habits of a lifetime - will be what he does next different this time.

This cat's running out of lives, unfortunately. How he reacts to this will either kill him or cure him IMO.

The ball's in his court.

I agree ... Even if Ronnie gets his act together for his own sake -- I hope he does -- I still think they need to make a change musically. Fact is, he's simply not a competent guitar player anymore.

Roster changes at this stage? I don't know. Up until very recently I said I would not check it out if they tour with anyone other than Ronnie on guitar and I know better: of course I'll see the show. But I don't think a different dude on lead would bring any ground breaking differences. It's too late in the game, though it would be cool if they'd bring back Fat Mick for a gig or two (and I know it is not very likely).

When I saw them in 07 I was pretty certain that it was my last ever Stones gig and I'm cool with that. Of course, one always hopes for more...but the quality isn't going up. Not even with Beck added to the fold.

The line up change 'wont happen' in the same sense that it didnt happen with Bill. One member left, and wasnt replaced.

The decision in this case, may end up being taken out of the band's hands. They have plans to tour in the near future (certainly within the next 9 months). One band member's ability to get medical insurance to do so is a matter of concern. Its a huge deal when youre embarking on a multi-million dollar undertaking where sponsors and promoters will want some security on their huge guarantees.

If Ronnie can't get past this hurdle, then the Stones are left with only two options. Either they tour without him, or they don't tour at all. If he's deemed medically uninsureable, then they CANT tour with him even if they want to - well, they could I suppose, but it would be incredibly foolish to tour without medical cover and they'd stand to lose millions if something happened.

Its quite bizarre and pretty ridiculous when you think about it that the touring future of the band may depend on whether or not Jo Wood agrees to go back on her earlier and quite logical decision to move on with her life and  deciding instead to forgive and forget.

"The line up change 'wont happen' in the same sense that it didnt happen with Bill. One member left, and wasnt replaced."

A LOT has changed since Bill's departure.
I just don't see them bringing in a new guitar player at this point.
I hate to think or even type this but my bet is No Ronnie, No Tour.

But really wtf do I know???

Hope for the best, I guess.
And "the best" is for Ronnie to get his friggin act together before we are posting in his Obit thread.  :forfucksake

Such a pathetically sad story. Imagine what any of us would give up to have the talent and opportunities in life Ronnie has had? The future is hard to see as far as the band is concerned but maybe Ronnie can rally himself for one last triumph over his deamons. They won't replace him with anyone who would show Keith's evident decline either though Jeff Beck seems so right for the job now.

A bit too high-profile, Waddy Wachtel would be easier to blend in I think, he'd probably be playing from the back though so he doesn't scare off the front rows...a haircut might help too.


Hell if Keith doesnt scare the front rows nobody would...lmaooo

The main difference since 1992 is that theyve become more focussed than ever on being a corporation that on being a band.

Bearing that in mind, every decision the Stones take is based primarily with profits in mind. Even on the last tour, on the two occasions where they gave fans a free or cheap show to go to (Copacabana and the Beacon), the motive was financial in the long run because the shows were being filmed for commercial release.

In the last few years, even Keith has gone back on previous statements about being down to the last four core members now by stating that as far as he's concerned, only he and Mick are irreplaceable.

The bottom line is that, as far as they're concerned, any 'weak link' in the chain that gets in their way of maximising profit is expendable. Even it doesn't look right to everyone else and even if it detracts from their musical legacy.

Agree with your last point. We can only hope the poor guy can see sense and sort his health and his life out. I don't think Mick and Keith's patience is inexhaustible however.

Stones Inc does appear to be falling apart after many many great years.

If they are able to cobble together another tour - it's gonna be the last time.

All of this talk of Wood's health and no talk of Keith?  He may in fact be in the poorest health of the bunch!  Certainly his playing is of the most diminished quality - and it pains me to say so but that is the irrefutable fact.

And does Charlie want another world tour?  I think not.  There will be much negotiation between he and Mick regarding the size and scope of the next outing - if it takes place at all.

There appears to be initial planning for something taking place in the coming year - but what, if anything transpires from that is at present impossible to say at the moment as the Stones themselves likely have little idea, to say nothing of the people around them.

Interview in either Mojo or Uncut before the last tour. The context was when he was asked what would have happened had Charlie's cancer been fatal.

Was pretty stunned to read it too, but he definitely said it.

Welcoming back Mick Taylor is not such a big change.  I don't believe that there is any rush anyway.  No way is MJ thick enough to plan a Tour in 2010....a year that will see the real economic punishment of the banking failures hit all of our pockets with collapsing global  markets.  I truly hope that I am wrong on the economic front but am desperate to buy a ticket to see the real Mick n Keef!!

The thing is, that if they're deemed fit to tour, then their performance capabilities are only relevant if you and I choose whether to buy a ticket or not because of it.

Keith's health is something we don't know about simply because unlike Woody he's generally chosen to not be tabloid fodder for the last 18 months.  You could theoretically say the same about the other two. I'd imagine that we'd never have known in August 2004 that Charlie had throat cancer unless someone at the Sunday People had got a tip off that he was going radiotherapy sessions.

The fact is that Keith doesnt need to go into rehab every couple of years to get medical clearance to tour. Ronnie does. You could surmise from that that while Keith's intake is possibly enough to kill a small horse, it hasn't affected his body to the degree that Ronnie's has affected his. His diminishing chops are probably as much to do with arthritis and having to take anti-seizure medication which was the case for the final  year of the last tour.

I really hope that Charlie's influence in the scale and scope of the next tour is as significant as you're hoping for. I genuinely dont think they have another long tour in them.

Funny though, even the free show at Altamont 'some' years ago had that commercial aspect in mind... Surely there were other motives as well, but  that is what some of the people involved with the project claim these days (that was news to me before the 40th Anniversary thing).

"anti-seizure medication" ? Ouch, was that related to the coconut incident?

What they should try to do is mini-tours like McCartney is doing these days, 6 or 7 dates twice a year. Obviously that won't gross as much but if they have any interest left in keeping the flame burning that shouldn't be a problem.

Agreed - Keith barely limped home during the last outing.  Even Mick seemed dog tired at times.  The guys were well into their 60s and still trying ot pull off a high energy show for a two-year stretch. That was insanity then - and even more so now.

I say back to basics.  Evolve into a more blues-centered performance.  Do arena shows with plenty of time between to lessen the road grind.  Maybe just 12 or so shows in the US and same in Europe.  No more monster tours for these guys - they just don't have it in them, particularly Keith, Ron, and Charlie.  Mick could probably pull it off as he is some kind of non-human timeless marvel, but even he over the long haul would be tested to the breaking point.  He would be pushing 70 by the time this latest tour wound down.

More bluesy low key shows - the type that made up the best parts of the Shine a Light film/performance.

If they planned it right, this tour could be a totally transformative one for the Stones allowing them another decade of artistic possibilities.

Dump the mega tour rock spectacle crap boys.

Just bring it down to the music and the personalities.

Leave the top gross to acts like U2.

Leave some of the best blues-rock music legacy to yourselves - the fucking Rolling Stones...

Yes. Keith mentioned in an interview a couple of years ago that he gave up cocaine after the Fiji incident because of the anti-seizure medication he's had to take since the accident. He even gave the name of it - Dilantin. (It's also known as Phenytoin)

Side effects of that drug include sedation and problems with co-ordination. Without wishing to act like I REALLY know what the fuck I'm talking about, it might go a bit towards explaining the occasional 'absences' he got during some shows post-Fiji (especially in the early parts of the Fall 2006 and Summer 2007 legs) and some erratic playing. He even fell over onstage on the European leg (Helsinki I think) and almost fell off the stage at a show I saw in Madrid. It would probably also explain why he stopped playing guitar while singing during his solo spot from September 2006 onwards.

Hopefully he's a lot more stable now. He was certainly on very good form by the time the tour ended in London.

Thanks !

Looks like we got another vote for the "McCartney-like" mini-tours, the Stones used to copy the Beatles, here's another think they could nick ;-)

Problem is all the "crew" though, dozens if not hundreds of people depend on the Stones for their livelihood and certainly can't wait for another "mega-tour" to get rolling. In 1998 when they cancelled the UK tour for "tax reasons", Mick made it sound like he was ok with the unplanned taxes, but "others" were not. Not sure if that was the other Stones, their advisors...I had a sense the crew was also concerned. And we know how that ended, the first tour without an album in 1999 and ridiculously expensive tickets...

I'm not so sure that so many people 'depend' on the Stones. Do these people hang around and not work for years on end when the Stones dont work? No. They get hired by other people. The Stones are like a big multi national which exists for a couple of years at a time, employs hundreds of people - and then shuts down almost completely for the next 3 years.

When they postponed the '98 tour, the official excuse was that it was to prevent the crew from paying hideous amounts of retrospective tax. Q magazine soon exposed that for the nonsense that it was.  Most of their crew were US taxpayers who werent liable for income tax in the UK. The tour was postponed because Woody and Charlie voted for it to be postponed. Mick wanted the tour to go ahead but was outvoted (Keith abstained as being a US resident, he wasnt affected by the change in UK tax legislation)

Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones Dump Guitarist Ron Wood
Written by Abel Rodriguez
Story written: 19 December 2009


The statue of Admiral Horatio Nelson which
sits in Ron Wood's Ruxley Tower's backyard.


LONDON - First Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood dumps his Russian-born 20-year-old girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova and now it appears by all accounts that the 62-year-old is being dumped by his band, The Rolling Stones.

When Wood was asked why he was being fired by the Stones he smiled, took a puff of his cigarette, and simply shrugged his shoulders.

It has been no secret that the band members as well as most of Ron's relatives and friends have never taken to his 20-year-old Russian Barbie Doll.

Ron always insisted that the 42 year age difference was no big deal. Fellow band mate Keith Richards reminded him that she was born in 1989 for goodness sakes.

Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, 68, recently said that Kit Kat as they all call her had never even heard of The Who, The Animals, The Kinks, or even Herman's Hermits.

She thought that David Frost was a type of beer. And she once told Ronnie that she would like to go and see Monty Python's Flying Circus whenever they come to town because she loves lions, and tigers, and seeing a dozen clowns squeeze into a tiny little car.

Ron's favorite uncle, Biffy Ludgate said that Ronnie had been feeling depressed about having had to dump Kit Kat. He said that Ronnie had confided in him that he really missed her sense of humor, her fantastically sexy body, and the funny little names she would always use when referring to her bearded taco and his wingy wangy.

Biffy remarked, "I tingk it was all just a might much for da lad. I know he wuz very depressed and 'ad refused to eat 'is favorite meal fish and chips.

Ronnie also got friggin tired of Kit Kat pointing 'er blimey 22 pistol at 'im ev'ry time he would tell 'er to shut up bitch, pipe down slut, or shut your bloomin' crumpet hole ya yeast mill tart."

Wood says that even if the Rolling Stones do dump him he is still going to show up at all of the concert dates in 2010 and get up on stage and play the songs.

SIDENOTE: When Mick Jagger, 66, was told of Ron's remark about the concert tour he replied, "Look chum, we ain't avin Ron on our tour. Ron sezz things dat da bloke duzzent really mean. The chap sez diz and he sez dat and it's really all just gobsmack innit?"

Rolling Stones considering replacement for guitarist Ronnie Wood
By Sophie Eager Dec 21, 2009, 15:15 GMT


Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood leaves his house in north London, UK, and heads to another house in east London, which is above an art gallery.
He gets out of his car, walks to a coffee shop next door to the house, discovers it's shut and goes back to the house. - Matt Keeble / Splash News


British band The Rolling Stones are reportedly considering a replacement for guitarist Ronnie Wood.

Mick Jagger, 66, is looking for somebody else to play guitar in the band instead of Wood, 61.

Wood recently split with his girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova, 21, after 18 months and their split came just days after he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting her.

A pal of the band said: 'It's one thing to say 'let's have the Stones frightening the grannies, let's all be debauched and wild,' but it's just not acceptable to have one seen choking his girlfriend.

'There are two things you can't be seen to do, which is hit women and get involved with under-age girls. Thanks to Ronnie and Billy Wyman [who seduced 13-year-old Mandy Smith whom he later married], Mick has had a full house now.'

The pal added: 'Mick tried to intervene right at the start of the relationship with Katya.

'There was a plan to set up Katya [Ekaterina's nickname] in a flat in Tottenham Court Road, get Ronnie to rehab and then lead him back to Jo.

'Mick has always relied on Jo to be his conduit through to Ronnie - he has relied on her to get Ronnie to work, to keep him well enough to pass a medical for the tour.

'Without Jo, Ronnie would never have managed to go on tour; you can't do it unless you have insurance, and you won't get insurance without the medical. It's always been up to Jo to get him through all that.

'All communication has gone through Jo for years, so now Mick has really washed his hands of Ronnie. The feeling is that he can't come back after this one. Ronnie's always been a bit lost and, without Jo, nobody can reach him.'

yes, it sure is a rewrite.
only these guys make it "Stones are reportedly considering a replacement"

reportedly only because The Daily Mail had come up with this bs. first
they, at least, put a frigging questionmark behind their speculation.

I wonder when Mick comes out of the woodworks and thanks the "press" for kindly letting him know that Ron's gonna get sacked.
just like he got to know that Charlie had quit and will never play with the Stones again.   :blankfriggingstare1:wtf3 :aimama  :forfucksake

I know there's much to worry about Ron passing his medical tests - but this shit is way over the top, imho.

now lets all sing this:

Artist: TBA
Song: Ronnie May


Ronnie May
Intro: Mandolin

Wake up Ronnie I think I've got something to say to you
It's late December and you really should be back at Stones-school
I know you wanna keep yourself amused But I feel we're being used
Oh Ronnie you can try once more
You ran away from home just to save you from drinking a--lone
You stole our hearts, and that's what really hurts

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age
But that don't worry me none, in my eyes you're everything
We laughed at all your jokes, my bucks you didn't need to coax
Oh Ronnie you could have tried a bit more

You lured her away from home just to save you from drinking a--lone
You stole our soul that's a pain we can do without

All you need is a friend who lends a guiding hand
But you turned into a motherfucking lover and wore yourself out
All you did was wreck your bed and in the morning had an aching head
Oh Ronnie you could have tried a bit more

You lured her away from home 'cause you didn't want to drink alone
You stole our hearts we couldn't leave you if we tried

Solo 1:
Em7 A D G
Em D G D

I suppose you should collect your medicals and get back to school
Or steal Keith Richards's cue make a living out of playing pool
Or find yourself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand
Oh Ronnie, I wish I'd seen you with the faces

You made a first class fool out of yourself, but your as blind as a fool can be
You stole our hearts but we love you any--way

Solo 2:
Em7 A D G

Outro Chords:
Em G D

No way MT is going to replace Ronnie for a tour.  If Ronnie can't get insured, how is a guy that just canceled his OWN tour last year for his own poor health going to get insured.  No way, no how.  Stones tours are too big and too much money on the line for that kind of risk.

I can say this from experience.  I'm on anti seizure meds, not Dilantin in my case Topamax, and they do have some odd side effects especially for the first year.  I will say things backwards, forget what I'm saying in mid sentence and my speech will be slurred just like I had a tequilla bender all while perfectly sober.  It took me a full year to get any where near normal again.  Keith's injury sounds as if it were more serious.  He may very well be playing better now than he did at the end of the last tour.  The brain takes time to rewire itself after an event like that.

My son's battle buddy in Iraq had a horrible head injury.  It's been nearly two years and he is just now able to walk without a cane.  This might interest y'all to know though - even the military uses music as therapy for head injuries.  Guys and gals that play an instrument are encouraged to get right back to it.  And if they don't play an instrument they teach them to play Guitar Hero.  Music forces the use of both sides of the brain and gets that rewiring process going.

Knowing that - I'm sure Keith is up to task.

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood cautioned for assault



Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, 62, has been cautioned by police for common assault following an incident in Surrey earlier this month.

The incident took place in Claygate High Street in Esher on 2 December.

It is understood a passer-by dialled 999 as a violent argument took place between Wood and his 21-year-old on-off girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.

In November, the rock star was divorced by his wife Jo on the grounds of his admitted adultery.

Alcohol addiction

The couple, who share two children, split in 2008 after 24 years of marriage.

Although divorce documents, which were made public, did not mention Ivanova by name, their relationship was widely reported.

The Russian former waitress has since spoken of their break-up.

In July 2008, the guitarist was admitted to a rehabilitation centre for help with his long-established alcohol addiction.

I used to have a coat like that in the 70s. I believe they were called "CPO jackets".

I hated it then. I hate it now.

That coat is reason enough to fire him.

"anti-seizure medication" ? Ouch, was that related to the coconut incident?



Yes. Keith mentioned in an interview a couple of years ago that he gave up cocaine after the Fiji incident because of the anti-seizure medication he's had to take since the accident. He even gave the name of it - Dilantin. (It's also known as Phenytoin)

Side effects of that drug include sedation and problems with co-ordination. Without wishing to act like I REALLY know what the fuck I'm talking about, it might go a bit towards explaining the occasional 'absences' he got during some shows post-Fiji (especially in the early parts of the Fall 2006 and Summer 2007 legs) and some erratic playing. He even fell over onstage on the European leg (Helsinki I think) and almost fell off the stage at a show I saw in Madrid. It would probably also explain why he stopped playing guitar while singing during his solo spot from September 2006 onwards.

Hopefully he's a lot more stable now. He was certainly on very good form by the time the tour ended in London.



Yeah I think he kind of pulled through in that respect. I always think of this passage in the 2008 GQ interview with Keith RIchards:

Any secrets you will take to the grave?
I'll let you know. You need to be there on the deathbed! I'm not looking forward to dying, but I'm not really looking forward to living. [laughs]

Why? You're not gonna die soon.
Well, I feel like I have to defy it now. There were plenty of times I could've given up the ghost. But it just seemed such a cheap way out.

What does? OD'ing or something?
Yeah. Just kind of that "Fuck it, don't do anything about it.… I don't want to go through it, the shit of building me back again." But at the same time, I tried my best to test this thing, and it still beats me. It says, "No! You're around for a little bit longer, boy." And I say, "Oh shit. I mean, okay."

In moments like that—moments when you are in a dark place, moments when you are at the edge—who is your one phone call? Who do you call in that moment?
I'd say Patti. Yeah. [pause] I mean, I woulda said me mum until last year, but dammit, she croaked on me.

You—Keith Richards—would call your mother in those dark moments?
If it was bad, I would, yeah. Just to let her know. But unfortunately she didn't live. [pause] Me mum, that's another thing, man. [Gets choked up] I went… I went… We knew me mum was going, and so my daughter Angela says, "Dad, take the guitar out. Play to her. Go into her room." So I went up there and sat on the hospital bed and played my best. And she's out on morphine, anyway, unconscious. And I played the old songs, the old dance-hall songs. The next morning, she came out of her sleep for a moment, and my daughter was there and asked her, "Did you hear Daddy play for you last night?" And me mum says, "Yeah, he was out of tune." [laughs] So let's put it that way—my family is… There's never a giving moment.

Always taking the piss out.
Yeah, all the way. Yeah. The last thing I said to me pa was "Save a seat for me at the bar, mate." I had to see him off, too. [sighs] It's rough. But then, it's normal. I mean, the last thing my dad said to me before he went was "At least things are going in their natural order."

Of course. It's terrible to bury a child.
Yeah, I've done that. [sighs…silence] The things they throw at you. [Pallenberg and Richards lost their third child weeks after he was born, in 1976.]

What's been the hardest thing they throw at you?
Tomorrow. [laughs]


I got the impression after having to clean up after all this time, he was contemplating just saying "fuck it" and going out with a huge blast of junk. Then, thankfully and wisely, he decided not to. Ron's at a similar precipice and seems to be leaning to the other option. I could see that causing a rift. It's no secret he was a cunt hair away, pardon my french, from being sacked before Licks.  If there is a tour next year, I fear he'll pull an Entwisle. And likewise, there will be a back-up plan.

Remember that one; that was an unbelievably candid interview.

It forces me to back off when I want to throttle him for being unproductive, erratic, or whatever.

Ronnie Wood's girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova 'was cheating on him with male model'

By Sarah Nathan      

The Russian waitress dumped by Ronnie Wood was allegedly seeing a male model 40 years his junior while they were dating.
Since her split with the Rolling Stones guitarist last month, Ekaterina Ivanova has been comforted by Dan Turner, 22, at his north London home and the pair are now a couple, the Daily Mail has learned.
They were first spotted cosying up together at trendy nightspot The Collection in South Kensington on Friday.

However, their 'friendship' stretches back over the past year - during Miss Ivanova's rocky 18-month relationship with 62-year-old Wood.
'When Kat started going out with Ronnie, she lost a lot of friends, but Dan was someone who never failed her,' a friend revealed. 'She has always trusted him.
'They met as they both share a lot of the same friends on the Camden scene. I can't say when their relationship turned to romance, but they are 100 per cent a couple now.
'They walk around holding hands and Kat is always at Dan's flat.'

Another source added: 'I don't think there is too much lost between Kat and Ronnie.
'She has been bragging, "I've already made £50,000 out of him" thanks to her magazine deals and interviews.
'Kat is very flirty, and her biggest dream is to be a model, but she and Dan do seem very keen on each other.'
Mr Turner, who works as a part-time model and a club promoter, runs a night called Cannibal, which draws a fashionable crowd in Shoreditch, east London.
When asked yesterday about his relationship with Miss Ivanova, he told the Daily Mail: 'I don't want to talk about it, sorry.'
A spokesman for Miss Ivanova, meanwhile, insisted Mr Turner 'was just an acquaintance' she met 'three times for a chat' while out with other friends.

Wood was heavily criticised for breaking up his marriage in order to date Ivanova
'Ekaterina and Dan have only become close friends since her split with Ronnie,' he added.
Following her split from the 62-year-old rocker, Miss Ivanova was quick to spill the beans on their tempestuous relationship.
In an interview with Hello! magazine last week, the 21-year-old described Wood as an 'evil goblin king'.
'The whole thing started off like a fairytale. But then it felt like an evil fairytale,' she said.
'When Ronnie and I moved into a tower, my friends were laughing and saying I was like the princess trapped in the tower.
'He went all Jekyll and Hyde. I'd be trapped there with an evil goblin king.'
The couple had been sharing a rented mock castle with a turret in Claygate, Surrey, until a drunken Wood allegedly attacked her in the street nearby.
Witnesses said they saw Wood 'choking' Miss Ivanova as he dragged her along the pavement by her hair and threatened her with a lit cigarette.
He was arrested and bailed until next month.
Miss Ivanova, who has been staying with her mother in a central London council flat since their split, will move to her own home in Camden in the new year.
Wood left his wife of 23 years, Jo, after he met the Russian

Ronnie's copped it over spat with Kat

By ANTHONY FRANCE
Published: Today

ROLLING STONE RONNIE WOOD was cautioned by cops yesterday after he admitted assaulting his former Russian lover in the street.

The rock star, 62, was arrested for hitting 21-year-old EKATERINA IVANOVA and trying to choke her.

A passer-by claimed he threatened to stub out a cigarette in her face before dragging her screaming along the pavement.

Police were alerted to the brawl near the couple's former home in Claygate, Surrey.

Alcoholic Woods went to Staines police station yesterday afternoon with his solicitor. By accepting a caution he had to admit his guilt, but will avoid court.

The arrest was the last chapter in a turbulent relationship between the ageing rocker and the former cocktail waitress, who split after the assault.

Police were called to the couple's £5million home in September after one row in which it was claimed Ekaterina, for whom Wood left his wife of more than 20 years, threatened to kill herself.

During the street row, Ekaterina is said to have been dragged 20ft by the collar of her blouse and jacket. She also suffered knee injuries.

Witness Celine Dixon told The Sun at the time: "We heard a woman screaming, then saw a man pinning her to the ground.

"He was shouting at her then we heard choking sounds so my boyfriend rushed out to help. When he got outside he saw it was Ronnie and Ekaterina."

Wood is said to have walked away, leaving Ekaterina crying in a shop doorway when challenged by Celine's boyfriend Phillip Legge.

Officers arrested Wood, who is worth an estimated £70million, at his home on suspicion of assault.

A police spokesman said: "A 62-year-old man from Esher has today been cautioned for common assault in connection with a domestic incident."

Ekaterina is believed to have returned to her mother's council flat in central London.

Earlier this month, the lapdancing bar where Wood met her was closed after a raid by vice squad officers.

Guess that answers my "caution" question...

Reeling Stone: Ronnie Wood's ex-lover is set for a £100,000 pay packet as she's lined up for Celebrity Big Brother
By Simon Cable and Marcus Barnes
Last updated at 12:55 PM on 26th December 2009



Tis the season to be jolly, but this Christmas is definitely not full of cheer for Ronnie Wood.
The wayward Rolling Stone, 62, spent Christmas alone after his recent split from 21-year-old Russian lover Ekaterina Ivanova.

And he will be reeling when he hears the news that she could be paid £100,000 to take part in next year's Celebrity Big Brother


Mix and match: Ronnie Wood in his fetching knitted jumper and scarf combo and bronze Ugg boots


According to reports the former cocktail waitress is being lined up by Channel 4 bosses hoping to inject some controversy into next month's last-ever show.
She will join a host of other celebrities, which may include former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Jordan's ex lovers Dane Bowers and Alex Reid.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: 'Ekaterina is just the type of feisty character we want on the show.

'She's also very high profile and will no doubt have some great gossip about what life was like living with one of Britain's biggest rock stars.

'I've no doubt Ronnie will come in for some stick. She'll also appeal to younger viewers as she's quite the style icon. And I'm sure a few older male fans will seek her out.'



Ronnie was pictured leaving his home on Christmas Day in a garish outfit.

The wayward Rolling Stone teamed a loud sweater with an equally flamboyant scarf and gold Ugg boots as he set out to a friend’s house for a meal.

Unkind observers suggested he was wearing every one of the few Christmas gifts he received.

Despite having parted from his young Russian lover, there was no family reunion for 62-year-old Wood


While his ex-wife Jo and children Leah and Tyrone spent the day together at home in Richmond, West London, Wood was at his rented home in Surrey before venturing into the winter cold.

Jo, who was with Wood for 23 years, has said that she is not interested in getting back together with him.

She says that she plans to remain single and wants to sell the family home and buy a flat in London.


Old times: Ronnie and Jo Wood before their split. He declined her invitation to spend Christmas with his family .

She was said to have invited him for Christmas lunch but he apparently declined the offer, saying: ‘What about the other 364 days of the year?’
The guitarist managed a smile today despite a turbulent few weeks which has seen him cautioned by police after being arrested for assault of his 21-year-old ex-girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.
She told officers she did not wish to press charges against Wood after an early-hours row in which he allegedly tried to throttle her in the street.
At one point, it was alleged that he threatened to stub his cigarette out on her face and onlookers claimed they saw him screaming abuse and dragging her along the ground.

The former cocktail waitress has now moved back in with her mother, who lives in a small flat in central London.
The pair have since ended their 18-month romance and Miss Ivanova sold her story to Hello! magazine.

‘The whole thing started off like a fairy tale,’ she said. ‘But then it felt like an evil fairy tale.
'When Ronnie and I moved into a tower my friends were laughing and saying I was like the princess trapped in the tower.
‘He went all Jekyll and Hyde. I’d be trapped there with an evil goblin king.’

Yep..these kind of reality shows tend to attract either

a) Z-list celebrities whose 15 minutes were up years ago and who need the money and/or exposure
or
b) Someone who became tabloid fodder because they dropped their knickers for someone famous and who see this as another way of cashing in on it

Kat is therefore perfect material as she falls into both groups.

Maybe Starbuck should start a poll to find out which one out of the boots, the scarf or the sweater ranks as the worst fashion atrocity.

He's been wearing the Ugg's forever.  They don't bother me, but the scarf and the sweater-that makes me cringe....

It is a pretty sad state of affairs when Ronnie takes the number one position held by Amy and Pete in the tabloids......

Ronnie at it again, it's a sad state when he ends up in papers like this, so he did spend Xmas Eve with Jo, I thought she didn't want him around when he was drinking, maybe he stopped it-for a few hours that is, call Pete Townshend or Eric clapton, get this guy back into A.A.

PDM - Ronnie needs to have some mirrors sewn to the toes of those Uggs so he can catch his reflection.  

And Martha - since reading your Buddy Guy replacement idea I've been having Champagne and Reefer visions.  That would be fantastic.  I hope Keith could get along with him, but even if he couldn't he'd better think twice about shooting his mouth off.  Old Buddy still looks like he might be able to pull a razor out of his boot.

Well, Ronnie would: Newly single Stone chats up a brunette in restaurant

By Sara Nathan


His former lover has already moved on just two weeks after their very public split.
And it seems Ronnie Wood is also wasting no time in putting himself back on the market.
The Rolling Stones guitarist, who split from 21-year-old Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova this month, was pictured chatting to an attractive brunette at restaurant J Sheekey in London’s West End.

After enjoying a few drinks together, the 62-year-old escorted the woman – identified only as Camilla – back to his rented home in Esher, Surrey. And, upon leaving with the girl, Ronnie found time to brag about his success, telling waiting photographers, 'I'm gonna have some of that'.
Wood’s descent back into alcoholism has shocked even his closest friends, and now his family – led by his ex-wife Jo, 54, and their children Leah and Tyrone – are begging him to get help.
The family had arranged a farewell dinner on Christmas Eve for Leah, 31, who is emigrating to Australia with her husband and baby daughter.

Driving home for Christmas... Ronnie Wood's car is seen leaving his ex-wife's house
However, the Mail has learned that instead of a peaceful meal they used the occasion to confront Wood about going back to rehab.
A friend close to the guitarist said that Leah is so concerned about her father that she is even considering postponing the move until he seeks help.

News of his latest conquest comes after it was revealed that Miss Ivanova, pictured left with Wood, is now dating model and club promoter Dan Turner.
The pair were pictured together for the first time last week as they left a West London nightclub.
Meanwhile, Wood's car was spotted leaving ex-wife Jo's house, full of gifts.
The Rolling Stone was initially thought to have turned down Jo's invite to spend the festive period with her and the kids.
However, Wood's Bentley was was seen leaving Jo's house after dropping him there for Christmas.
He is said to have been driven in swiftly in the luxury car by close friend Jimmy White.

The pair were snapped for the first time last week, leaving a West London Nightclub.
Following her split from world famous guitarist, Miss Ivanova was quick to go public on their tempestuous relationship describing him to Hello! Magazine as an 'evil goblin king'.
Nevertheless, Ronnie was clearly in the mood for proving that he's still got what it takes.
One onlooker said: 'Ronnie was carrying on like a teenager.


He kept leaning close to the girl and whispering in her ear. They were in fits of giggles all night long.
'Although the whole thing was hilarious, Ronnie clearly doesn't care about the age difference.
He was chuffed when the girl agreed to his drinks invitation and equally happy when they left together.'

OK, here are my two cents: as a 62-year-old grandfather, Ronnie Wood really shouldn’t be behaving such a way. He shouldn’t be posing outside west end eateries and beckoning in passers-by, lavishing them with drinks and then escorting them to his Surrey home – oohh, the naughtiness of it all! Yep, it isn’t an ideal scenario young Ronald finds himself in, but he is now a singleton and more than in his right to have a sniff about – after all, this isn’t cheating now, is it?

Title: Re: Interesting Ronnie Article (Tour info included
Post by FotiniD on Dec 28th, 2009 at 5:14am
Ronnie's wild escapades picking up young brunettes don't bother me one single bit - and I don't think it's any of our business anyway. I mean, he is single, as Honky Tonk Man pointed out, which means he can do whatever he wants. Since we're talking about adults here, I don't think one has a right to put an age limit or call the moral police to what he can or should do.

What does worry me though is the fact he's sitting in bars drinking up again :Youmakeagrownmancrylikejoey
Pull yourself together Ronnie, life doesn't have too many second (or third or fourth for that matter) chances baby  :aimama

Post by Honky Tonk Man on Dec 28th, 2009 at 5:53am
I think we have to ask ourselves the following: just what exactly is Ronnie supposed to do? Remain single ‘till he finds sobriety? The latter isn’t going to happen. It sadden me, of course, but a 62-year-old man with a life-long drinking, drug-taking and partying lifestyle is not going to change his way this late into his life. 10, 20 years ago, he perhaps could have been saved, but not now.

I actually find the latest happening to be rather amusing – and I wish I had been there to see it. It sounds like the kind of thing I would attempt after being tipsy.

Decision Time for Ronnie and Mick

Wednesday December 30,2009



OLD PALS: Ronnie and Mick


AFTER a turbulent spell, rocker Ronnie Wood is reportedly set for a “showdown meeting” with Rolling Stones bandmate Sir Mick Jagger in the new year.


Ronnie, 62, who is battling alcoholism, recently split from his 21-year-old Russian lover Ekaterina Ivanova after an 18-month romance. The troubled star’s ex-wife Jo was also granted a divorce from the guitarist in November after more than two decades of marriage. Now friends say Ronnie is to meet Sir Mick in the new year when it’s hoped the singer will be able to persuade his old pal to clean up his act.

It’s also understood that the pair will discuss Ronnie’s future role in the Stones, the legendary group could be back on the road in the near future though there are no offiical plans. There have reportedly been concerns that Wood might not be fit for another tour if his heavy drinking continues.

“Mick and Ronnie will talk things through in the new year,” we’re told. “They are old friends and Mick will obviously do everything he can to help him. But when it comes to the Stones, Mick has a real eye for detail and always ensures things run like clockwork. He’ll need to be convinced that Ronnie is still up to the job .

“Hopefully everything will work out , as it would break Ronnie’s heart if the Stones had to perform without him,” adds our source.

In the past Jagger, 66, was able to rely on Jo Wood to help organise the guitarist’s touring plans. However, despite the pair being back on more amicable terms, it seems unlikely she will fulfil this role in the future.

Wood has again been in the headlines over the festive period after being spotted chatting up a young brunette in a west London bar. He was involved in a violent bust-up with Ekaterina last month, which led to her leaving him and to his receiving a police caution.

A spokesperson for Jagger said: “Mick has been very supportive of Ronnie over the holidays.”

Aside from the obvious divorce and young-girl issues, is not this scenario pretty similar to Ronnie's pre-tour situations in the past?

Mick & Ronnie meet up, discuss Ronnie's problems, things happen and the tour comes around.

Anyone think the same thing is happening this time as well?

JAGGER AND WOOD TO DISCUSS STONES TOUR IN NEW YEAR

SIR MICK JAGGER is to meet up with ROLLING STONES bandmate RONNIE WOOD in the New Year (10) to discuss whether the guitarist is well enough to rejoin the group for a tour, according to reports.

Wood, who is said to be battling an alcohol addiction, has endured a difficult year which saw him divorce his wife Jo last month (Nov09) after his affair with young Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova was exposed in the press.

He has since split from Ivanova after he was arrested earlier this month (02Dec09) for allegedly choking her during a heated argument outside a restaurant in Surrey, England.

Jagger is worried about his pal and plans to hold talks with Wood in January (10) over concerns he may not be able to embark on a planned Stones tour if he continues to drink heavily, according to Britain's Daily Express.

A source tells the newspaper, "Mick and Ronnie will talk things through in the New Year. They are old friends and Mick will obviously do everything he can to help him. But when it comes to the Stones, Mick has a real eye for detail and always ensures things run like clockwork. He'll need to be convinced that Ronnie is still up to the job. Hopefully everything will work out, as it would break Ronnie's heart if the Stones had to perform without him."

From an Italian website, with a Babelfish translation.
Not the easiest read, but you can get the gist...



Rolling Stones Tour 2010 between personal troubles and uncertainties

Still a tour and still between great problems. Rolling Stones are the absolute symbol of rock and roll rebellion. About a new, long tour in 2010 it is spoken for a long time and it's been Mick Jagger in person to move in order to replace with the companions of a musical travel of more than 40 years. But they do not lack the large one to resolve.

Ron Wood outside from the group - before it regards Ron Wood, guitarist of the English group. In the last year Ron Wood has left wife Jo, personal and better his manager consigliera, in order to throw himself capofitto in the sentimentale history with provocative Ekaterina Ivanova, 41 years younger than he. History ended after a punch-up with jealousy from him, then meanwhile he's been thought to fall back into toxic-alcoholic defects. For this reason, and until one will not give regulating, Wood has been put outside from the group, also because no insurance would want to stipulate policies on the tour of Rolling Stones with a variable one driven crazy like the seasoned Ron of means. If one guitarist doesn't pass it well, the other is not better.

Keith without brakes - In new sight of tour a world-wide one it will have to verify the physical estate of Keith Richards, the other guitarist of the Rolling Stones. Today 66, Keith seems indestructible in spite of a life of excess, between drugs, colossal drinks and nights insonni. In 2006 the musician had fallen from a coconut tree while in New Zealand, violently striking his head. The incident demanded a surgical procedure to the brain, gone to good aim. Since then Keith has moments of loss of memory and some difficulty with coordination of movement. In 2010 he will finally publish his first authorized autobiography in which he promises to tell some of the beautiful ones. Will he succeed in returning to tour?

She is an absolute cunt and Wood is incredibly stupid for chasing that tail.  Granted, her tits are amazing, but c'mon now, make it a 'nighter and be done with it.  Don't let that cat move the box in the house!

Lets just hope someone - either Jo or Mick - will decide that it's time to kick Ronnie out of the gutter and into rehab (again) soon. But it wouldn't surprise me if Ron burned down all his bridges..

Hey! You! Get off of that booze

Mick Jagger tells Ronnie Wood to quit drink or face sack from Rolling Stones


OFF RAILS: Ronnie                                             PACK IT IN: Mick


By Dan Evans, 03/01/2010
ROLLING Stone Mick Jagger will give hard-drinking Ronnie Wood an ultimatum - quit booze or be DITCHED from the band's tour.

Ronnie's worried family have asked Mick to get his bandmate into rehab to tackle his two bottles of vodka a DAY habit.

It follows a Christmas Eve showdown as ex-wife Jo and kids Leah and Tyrone begged veteran guitariest Ronnie to get help.

A source said: "Ronnie's on a path to self-destruction. His daily alcohol intake is over 50 UNITS."

Frantic Jo, 54, phoned Mick and pleaded with him to help. "If anyone can make Ron listen it's the band," said the source.

If the 62-year-old rocker doesn't clean up, he faces being dumped from the Stones' forthcoming tour, set to be announced in April. The source went on: "Mick is making it clear to Ronnie he must curb the drinking or he won't be coming on tour.

"He won't let Ronnie's boozing derail the band's plans and already has possible replacements in mind."

But Mick, 66, will support Ronnie - cautioned for assaulting ex-lover Ekaterina Ivanova, 21. His pal Nick Charles runs Gainsborough Foundation rehab in Cambs. Nick warned: "Ronnie looks as if he is heading for tragedy. I'd fix him up."

Curb shmurb.  Make the call Mick, and let either Mick T or Buddy G start warming up.  Ronnie knows what he needs to do - he's been through this countless times.   I know how heartless that sounds but enough is enough and until Ronnie has had enough the rest is just noise.

1) Ronnie's drunkenness becomes a matter of public record and embarrassment, causing band members, potential sponsors and fans to collectively shit themselves.

2) Stones authorise anonymous 'spokesmen' or 'sources' to plant stories in the press about Ronnie being possibly booted out in an attempt to knock some sense into him via public humiliation.

Having read that article again, if someone of his age and with his history is going through anything close to 50 units a day, he won't have a prayer of getting past No.3.

At that rate, he won't even be alive by April, let alone anywhere near a press conference.

http://www.drinkaware.co.uk/tips-and-tools/drink-diary/

The recommended regular WEEKLY limit for an adult male is 21 units.

A litre of Vladivar vodka works out at 37.5 units. 40 units for Absolut vodka.

A pint of draught Guinness would be 2.33 units.

If he's knocking back 50 units a DAY, thats Oliver Reed-esque.

I'm sure Ronnie isn't "dumped" from The Rolling Stones...

They have always taken care of him in his time of need. This time will be no different I'm sure.

They will make the adjustments and see to it he gets his head on.

By now, you'd certainly think they have begun recording. They may of broke for the holidays a bit but ....realistically it is January folks. I'm sure several songs are written and either they have much in the can or they've worked on them already.

they can wrap him in cotton wool all they like but the reality is that if he's too much of an insurance risk for promoters he wont be in the band when they go on the road.

Amazed people still cant get this. No one's going to stump up millions and millions of pounds up front to sponsor or promote a tour if they think there's a strong risk the tour wont finish (or even start) because one of the band members may be at a high risk of dying.

And unless Mick and Keith have been doing stuff separately in their home studios, they havent been 'recording'. Ronnie and Charlie certainly havent been involved in anything and Charlie has some more concert dates lined up in January.

He went to the Cottonwood clinic in Arizona in early 2002 for rehab.

however, he went into rehab in early 2005 too before the Licks tour.

What's Ronnie's longest rehab stint?

When/if he goes again, surely it's got to be the intensive, 90 day (or longer) inpatient variety.

Title: Re: Interesting Ronnie Article (Tour info included
Post by Gazza on Jan 3rd, 2010 at 10:03am
Usually a few weeks, as far as I can make out.

I thought about 6-8 weeks was the standard length of time. 90 days? Yikes. If thats the case, he wont play a note on the next record (if there is one). He's gone into rehab before and come out proclaiming himself as 'cured' about 3 weeks later.  ::)

The way this is shaping up, if the Stones really want to make sure he's going to play on their next album AND get himself into some kind of condition where he can tour, they might end up having to postpone any recording/touring plans by several months.

Thats unlikely to happen I suppose, so if they dont do that they may have to either scrap it altogether (unlikely) or say 'enough is enough' and  move on without him.

Post by Lantern_High on Jan 3rd, 2010 at 11:06am
Let me post some Ronnie's own words from his book 'Ronnie' I got in my hand right now, and I'm reading.
        Prologue

it was 1964. The Rolling Stones were playing the Richmond jazz and Blues festival. The gut essence of the music was gripping me ever since. The Stones were my bait and I was hooked on the line.
.....
2006: perring through the balcony from my hotel room, down on to the millions waiting for our momentous Rio gig to start, I truly realized how far we'd come. The way the anticipation and sheer adrenaline built and built until we actually hit the killing floor on Copacabana Beach was immense.
.....
here I was  - more than four decades after my first glimpse of the Stones rocking the blues festival, and I'd been asked to relate my life story.
..
Chapter 2
A Ronnie's girlfriend was died.
he says: I wasnt allowed to go to her funeral because her parents decided they hardly knew me and didnt wasnt me there. So while they were burying Stephanie, some friends took me to the pub. That's how I discovered that alcohol could help me hide my feelings.
They got me drunk because it was the only way I could accept the fact that she was gone from my life forever.
Although I missed her funeral, I did visit the accident black spot, and several days later her grave. despite this, I was unable to accept what had happened to her; but in the bottle I had discovered a way not to think about it; I know that anger and disappointment blow out the candles of the mind.
I would never let them get the better of me.

(Never let then get the better of me.. !)

Also I am not being overly optimistic (I certainly realize some times I can be) but who knows, Mick and Keith could be together right now working on songs. We do not live with them. We are not at every major airport to see them. The media adheres to keeping a lid on things in "certain" instances until the time is right as well. So who knows. As well Gazza, not for anything but the clock is truly ticking here. It already is January 2010. If they are to get an album out by next fall The Stones should of well been working on it by their (and any major acts) normal time-scale. Don't you at least agree to this? It's January. In six or seven months that album has to be completely finished ....writing, recording, mixing, mastering, artwork ....everything ....for a 2010 fall release. All of this is normally a year long project for them.

The ADD thing is interesting.  I think Charlie said something like Ronnie has an attention span of two minutes most some years ago.  That could explain a lot about Ronnie.  

Thankfully, for Ronnie's sake, he was let off with a slap on the wrist.  It probably would have been different if there were stories of Ronnie smacking people around on a regular basis.  I can't remember at any time in the last 31 years I've been a fan hearing about Ronnie being a violent person.  What really happened that night with Ekat I doubt any one other than the two of them will ever know.  JMO, but I don't have near the sympathy for her that I had the day it happened.  There is something very icky about the way the girl has conducted herself since.  All of the talking to the tabloids is creepy.  Which is why I'm not fully buying into the tabloid reports.  Their number one source is Ekat or the infamous 'unnamed friend'.  It sells papers and gives this girl the attention she is obviously craving.

IF the report of a tour announcement in April is right, it makes sense.  Announce the tour when Exile is re-released.  More bang for the advertising buck.  And IF the guys stick with past scheduling that means the tour won't start for several weeks after the announcement.  That gives Ronnie plenty of time to get himself together.  That only leaves the 'new album' as a real question.  *fingers crossed*

You reckon he's an alcoholic?  ::)

No offence, Ian - but if you're unaware of the health warnings the guy has repeatedly ignored for the last decade then I dont know what planet you live on.  Presumably you belong to the group of fans who think these guys are indestructable. At 62 and with your health in a poor state there's only so many times you can make half-arsed attempts to clean up (and Ronnie has never ever properly cleaned up that I'm aware of). But hey, as long as he can walk to the shops then it follows that no doubt he'll fly through a medical to get him multi-million dollar insurance cover for a lengthy tour.

This is the biggest problem Ronnie's EVER had and if he doesn't get past it (and don't be so certain that he will), something has to give sooner or later if the Stones are going to tour.  Make no mistake about it.

Ekaterina Ivanova claims Ronnie Wood gave her cocaine hours after they met
By Georgina Littlejohn

Last updated at 11:49 AM on 04th January 2010
Comments (10) Add to My Stories

Ekaterina Ivanova just can't seem to keep her mouth shut.

After breaking her silence on her 18-month relationship with ex-Rolling Stone lover Ronnie Wood just weeks after they split, the 21-year-old former waitress has revealed even more about the man she called an 'evil Goblin King'.

And she now claims that she indulged in a cocaine binge with the guitarist at a London hotel just hours after they met.

Last night she joined 10 other C-listers and actress Stephanie Beacham as one of the contestants of Celebrity Big Brother.

But before she went into the house, which is guaranteed to give her even more publicity, she spoke to The Sun about life with the ageing rock star and alleged he gave her cocaine on the first night they met.

Russian-born Ekaterina, also known as Katia, spoke about meeting Wood when she was waitress at a London bar called Churchill's in the summer of 2008 - and how the evening turned into an all-nighter.

She said Ronnie, 62, had come into the club with a huge entourage so she went to talk to him but was unaware of who he was.

She said: 'I sat next to him with a cigarette and dropped some ash on his trousers. He said, "You've ashed on my trousers". I looked him up and down and said, "I don't give a f**k". He just went, "I love you". Basically I was rude, he was kind of sleazy and we kind of bounced off each other.'

Then she claimed that some of them went to the Hempel Hotel in west London where they stayed up all night doing cocaine and drinking.

She added: 'I don't know whose coke it was but it just appeared on the table and Ronnie did some and so did I. Maybe four of five lines.

'I ended up passing out in his bed, but we spent the next two days together. It was very touchy feely but nothing happened between us. I did fancy him. I liked arrogant guys in bands with tight jeans and he was the ultimate guy in a band.'

Not long after they met, in the July that year, Ronnie entered rehab for his drinking but rather than go back to his family, he returned to Ekaterina as soon as he got out.

She said after renting a flat together in north London they fell 'madly in love' and spent many months sober, drinking hot chocolate and talking about marriage and kids.

Ekaterina said: 'We spoke about getting married. If his divorce had come through we might have just got married there and then.

'And we talked about babies. We'd mess around and say that if we had a boy we'd call him Ivan Ivanova Wood and if  we had a girl it could be Holly Wood.'

But she said the relationship soon became doomed after he started drinking again and at his worse would drink a litre bottle of spirits a day, take cocaine and smoke up to 50 cigarettes.

She said: 'He would never drink in the morning if I was around. But if I went out, I'd come back and find him drunk. I tried reasoning with him, nagging him, taking him to AA meetings.
'Nothing stopped him for longer than a couple of weeks.'

And she said that she soon stopped Ronnie, who ended up repulsing her with his bad boozy breath.

She said: 'It started off really exciting. His body is very good for his age and he was very youthful in bed. But towards the end it got into a routine, especially as he was always drunk.
'He'd try it on with me and his breath smelt of rum, which I hated. Sometimes I'd go through the motions but sometimes I'd just push him off. I'd stopped fancying him.'

THE ROLLING STONE'S RONNIE WOOD IS OUT OF TUNE WITH REFORMED KEITH RICHARDS



Ronnie Wood’s future in The Rolling Stones is up in the air due to his turbulent personal life


WITH Ronnie Wood’s future in The Rolling Stones up in the air due to his turbulent personal life it seems that he is no longer able to call upon the help of the man considered to be his best pal in the legendary group.


Band insiders say that Wood’s relationship with fellow guitarist Keith Richards has become strained. While Ronnie, 62, who is battling alcoholism, has been in the news courtesy of his ill-fated romance with 21-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova, the once hard-living Richards, 66, has opted for a healthier life since enduring serious head injuries after falling out of a tree in Fiji in 2006.

Pals say the days when the pair would head out for a night on the tiles seem over. “Keith and Ronnie have obviously had some wild times together over the years,” we’re told. “But while Ronnie is still trying to behave like he’s in his 20s or 30s, Keith opts for the quieter life these days as he knows he has to take things a little easier. He and Ronnie certainly appear to have drifted apart and Keith has no interest in going out on all-night benders with him.”

Frontman Mick Jagger, 66, is known to be concerned for Wood’s welfare. While it’s been claimed he is prepared to axe Wood from a forthcoming tour if he’s unable to straighten himself out, a spokesman for Jagger told this column he had been “very supportive of ­Ronnie over the holidays”.

Wood had a bust-up with Ekaterina in November which led to her leaving him. He received a police caution.

A band source says: “Keith and Ronnie used to love nothing more than jamming with guitars together over a few drinks and cigarettes but those days seem to be gone.”

Yeah, I don't take anything published in those articles at face value. But things are rather ugly for Woody at this point of time. You often have to hit rock bottom to get back up, and I hope he can still do it (the getting back up part), harder as it surely is without Jo.

lol...yeah, I thought that too. Its not like they live around the corner from each other.

Still, if Keith is taking it easy by comparison its a strange about-turn. Their relationship apparently hasnt quite been as close since the Licks tour when Ronnie was trying to stay sober and Keith somewhat resented him for it. Yet they were boozing together when Keith had his accident. As Mel says, maybe it took that bump on the head to make Keith wise up.

I think there's a certain element of 'spin' being placed by people in the Stones camp in some of these stories - with authority from the band themselves - in some kind of attempt to knock some sense into Ronnie.

Yeah, it started last night. It was confirmed a week or so ago she'd be one of the contestants. Impeccable timing.

I think she's getting £75,000 for her appearance. Which could well end being more than Ronnie earns this year unless he sorts himself out.

Once you piss off Keith, it never goes back to a normal relationship... Even him and Mick have rules about how they fight and work together, it has never been the same between... look at Taylor and Wyman, fuck... Keith never was going to forgive Jones for fucking up, and hitting a woman is a big deal to Keith. He may be many things some call immoral, but from all evidence, one thing he does is respect women and never would lay a hand on them violently... If Keith gets a resentment he doesn't let it go. Ronnie is on thin ice, I don't think the tabloid stuff is just an attempt to send him a public message to get it together. It is to a certain extent, but it also a way of priming the fans for his possible sacking and being replaced, and we def. know if Ronnie keeps going this road, he's gonna die sooner rather than later...

I'm selfish... i kinda hope he ends the band, I'm more excited for the vaults than the Circus act they call touring. Self destruction doesn't entertain me anymore... well unless it is Courtney Love...haha!

For the record, I wasnt suggesting it was JUST an attempt to get him to see sense. I think its part of it. I agree with everything else you say about him being on very thin ice and this being a way of preparing fans for the possibility that he may end up being booted.

Ronnie Rehab ,before Four Licks (His own words)

In July 2000 I spent a week at the Priory in Roehampton, not far from home. I had helped me a bit, but soon as I got out I was still convinced that I could have a glass of wine without any problem. Unfortunately, one glass became one bottle which became two bottles. And from wine I slipped back to vodka. I thought I was handling it, but I should haven known better because the memory was still fresh in my mind of a drinking bout in the Virgin Islands, a few years before, on holiday there with Leith and our two families. I got heavy into 100% proof Passers Rum and wound up with alcohol poisoning. I spent two weeks in bed. I couldnt even look at a glass of water. I had ruined myself.
But even that wasnt enough to scare me away.

Of course, I didnt believe anyone when they tried to convince me that my drinking was getting out of hand. The thing is that some people get nasty when they drink, so that if they wake up the next day with a hangover anda bloody nose, they start to realize they might have a problem.
But its not like that with me. So I thought, its broke, how am I gonna fix it?

He could destroy his own family, his sons, ex wife, friends.. if he dont start to use his own head,
I wonder, Ronnie still has getting a mind or no?
if he is still capable to play.. why he cant use his head?

I don't know what Ronnie's bottom could be to wake him up, he's so self destructive, rehab won't help unless he has a honest desire to stop drinking, & I think Ronnie doesn't even know what honesty is anymore, this is a paragraph from "How It Works" from the book "Alcoholic Anonymous.
Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path, those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually Men and Women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves, there are such unfortunates, they are not at fault, they seem to have been born that way, they are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty, their chances are less then average, there are those too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.

This is coming from people who know more about alcoholism then any professional because they've been there & experienced it, so they know what their talking about.

Herman Brood once said in an interview that he was in rehab for drugs at the same time Ronnie was going through an alcohol program, and they switched places because the people there mixed them up all the time. Don't know if it's true, but he told it in his remarkable hilarious style.

As exciting as it would be, I'm not sure such a high-profile collaboration would even work. I can't imagine someone of Clapton's stature woodshedding on 70 or 80 of someone else's songs, even the Stones', in preparation for a long tour. (As the 2000 Black Crowes/Page tour ground on, Page could barely be bothered to learn more than a handful of Crowes tunes.)

Someone like Waddy, however, would gladly do it -- and potentially do it extraordinarily well, it seems to me.

I hope, for Ronnie's sake, that that's the *worst*-case scenario. I'd rather he cleaned up right now, no further ado. Musically, though -- and this is going to sound callous -- they'd be better off without him, sober or not.

A tad harsh Mel but I can't disagree. How about adding Waddy as a third guitar? He could cover Ronnie or Keith and when/if they are on at same time he could just add another great layer of sound. Surely better than Blondie hiding off stage.

He plays lots of the songs with his band, which often includes guest spots by Bernard and Blondie.

If it comes to that, it's a decision that makes itself. As with Charlie getting to make the final call on bass, Keith is the one who'd be most affected by Ronnie's absence. And he's already well familiarized with Waddy's playing.

As I noted above, Mick trusted him enough to lay some overdubs on the two B2B tracks that he probably cared most about.

Bring it on.

Daryl Jones is not a Rolling Stone: he is a sideman – just like Blondie, Lisa, Bernard, et al.

Down to the "core three". Honestly Ron's a nice guy but his contributions over the past 35 years have been laughable and it certainly didn't help the Stones take things further. Yes I know the buck stops at Mick and Keith but having a clown on board cetainly didn't encourage them to try too hard, they should have canned him in 1984 when he went berserk for the first time with his freebasing habit, no one would have missed him.

On the plus side he did "refresh" the band when he joined, that's according to Bill, and he taught Mick how to play the guitar, although Mick could certainly have learnt by himself by copying Keith or getting a real teacher. Time to get serious about music again.

What was it that one of my Stones coffee-table books said of Ronnie -- the "most bum notes of anyone in British rock"?

In fairness, I think Ronnie made valuable contributions as late as Voodoo Lounge, including that tour (I'd be satisfied if he could play just this well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNOgarFyvSw).

After that, it was steadily downhill.

I bought into the Licks-era hype that sobriety revived his playing. But it turns out he wasn't even truly sober.

Thanks Honky Tonk Man. I was starting to feel I was the only around who wouldn't want to see the Stones replacing Woody.  :-?

This sort of reminds me of conversations distant relatives have, when one in the family is about to kick the bucket and they're talking about who's getting what ;D :o Please people.

Didn't see this on the thread, so apologies if already up. It is VERY rare to get this kind of official statement and I wonder if this is the final public warning for him. Obviously I'm guessing, but I have a feeling, the band is saying, either clean up or you're out for good. It seems like the Stones is the only thing that will give him the necessary jolt because without the band, I honestly can't see him surviving the next year.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1240597/Rolling-Stones-NOT-tour-year-nice-little-earner-Ronnie-Wood-then.html

The Rolling Stones tonight announced they had no plans to tour this year.
The superstars took the extremely rare step of issuing an official statement after intense speculation in the music business they were planning another global jaunt, which had been pencilled in to be announced in April.
The statement read: ‘Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear, there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010.’

If there is a tour in the future then there is only one substitute to Ronnie, that is Eric Clapton

I doubt Mick will go on tour before geting any new material if not announcing the Farwell tour. Time is running out for them. "Times waits for no one" should be played in the next tour.

The only think that may save Roninie is geting into the studio with Keith and Mick or touring. Question is if that is posible at all, thinking on his health.

Honestly this Clapton thing is difficult to believe. Keith has said many times that as good as Clapton is, he's not a band guitarist and that he's too nervous when he plays. I seriously doubt he would agree to it either on the guitars issue or to have someone like Clapton taking too much of the spotlight away from him. Mick has said that Keith is a bigger prima donna than him and it's partially true. I'd think that Mick Taylor has more of a chance.

Read Keith's comments about Clapton and you might agree. They are all mates and he's probably closer to Wyman and Ronnie Wood above the others even though Keith wrote him that letter when his son died, but they're friends with a lot of guitarists. He hasn't worked with them for 20 years and before that for about 15 years so 3-4 times in about 35 years isn't saying much. Besides, in his autobiography he talked about Mick nicking Carla Bruni off of him so that tension is probably still around. Trust me, I'd be thrilled but I seriously doubt it. I just see a lot of other people who would be in front of him, although just thinking about it, they may do it for commercial reasons because who wouldn't pay to watch the Rolling Stones with Eric Clapton. The wine disgrace shows there is no low they won't steep to commercially.

There's enough time for a long stay at rehab, and I know RONNIE will force his ass in gear, he isnt THAT stupid!! He'll be bright, shiny and new again, on the outside anyway. Inside RONNIE will secretly crave the alcohol, and he always will, so the question remains, does RONNIE have the inner strength to really sober up?

Well I dont believe it, they just dont want to announce anything yet because it's too early! They always keep it quiet so they can make a big splashy announcement with a big Press Conf. so if it leaks out early, then it's no big news when it happens!

When was the last time any act - let alone the Stones - went to the trouble of issuing a statement to announce that they WOULDNT be touring? They usually don't announce anything at all!

You dont find it even slightly believable that recent events would indicate a possibility of some risk to a tour happening with all of the current band members ?

There are three seperate occasions in that Daily Mail story where it says that this confirmation comes from the band themselves - not the usual 'a source says' or 'according to an insider' nonsense that the media usually hide behind when theyre either making something up or twisting the words of someone who doesn't want to be named.

My gut feeling is that
a) Jagger is desperate to distance the Band from Ronnie's mess and the daily barrage of bad press.
b) Ronnie is uninsurable and won't be for a long time.


I knew they'd never replace Ronnie. It's too late in the game.
So we wait. Again.

2011-2012 to coincide with the 50th Anniversary makes the most sense to me if this story is, indeed, true.

Both of the above, plus

c) To use the great IanBillen's phrase, "the clock is ticking" and the chances of getting Woody ready to be of any use to the band in the studio or on a concert stage in 2010 is getting more remote with every successive bottle of vodka he's pouring down his throat.

Too many hurdles to jump over in too short a time. A Stones tour in 2010 was rapidly turning into a disaster waiting to happen. A fucked world economy, record sales at their lowest ever ebb and a guitarist whose short term future is at serious risk and who clearly is too much of a liability in every way at present.

Give it to 2011 and hopefully everything will be in better shape and everyone better prepared. At least the press statement only said "at the moment".

I hope for your sake and everyone on here that you ARE right. That said, I'd prefer that the band go on the road when theyre ready - no matter how long it takes. Surely none of us wants to see a trainwreck.

I'm only going by whats said in what appears to be a statement from the Stones PA people (presumably it came from Fran Curtis or Bernard Doherty). Looks convincing enough to me.

Well I think that might apply more to Europe than the USA. Other than on Stones fan sites you hear very little of the Ronnie mess over here and I honestly don't think it would affect ticket sales much. Probably more a matter of Ronnie just not being in shape. Too bad Keith couldn't step up and take more of a role. Either talking to Ronnie himself, suggesting a decent replacement to Mick. Or just stepping up his own playing.  Sadly it looks as though he meakly stepping aside and leaving it all up to Mick to decide. Maybe we're better off without a tour.

They didnt put the denial about Charlie on their site either, and didnt exactly keep us up to date a couple of years ago with what was happening with the Euro tour post-Fiji so thats nothing new.

If there isn't a t-shirt to commemorate it or potential for a 'No 2010 Tour Monster Truck' mailshot, then forget about it.

I suppose they could always make a killing in "Ronnie and Ekaterina Voodoo Dolls" for frustrated fans if they wanted.

Could we even think we'd get anything special? Nah. They've got enough money and know they cant possible handle an extensive 18 mth world tour. There's nothing to prove and i doubt even a "this is the last time" tour would generate much excitement.

And the U.S. is stuffed. They cant tour there as no one can afford to go. And you just know they wont drop prices. Without a booming U.S. tour to make a tour break even, they will not venture out of their various mansions.

Still, much as I'd like to see another Stones show I pretty much realised I saw the last of the band after the lights dimmed in Nijmegen in 2007. And I am cool with that. I saw them 14 times, on 5 different tours. I'm very happy I got the opportunity to see the band with Bill in 1990.

It's not really surprising to me that it might end this way... in some ways it would be most fitting, since the band was built on decadence and self indulgence... the big tours and circus wasn't very fitting... A good old personal tragedy, and this one not deadly, at least yet, is very apropo. Booze and Girls should end this band, not old age and diminished skills... So be it, if it ends, better than watching them try to keep up with Jagger and keep making mony they will never spend... time to let some other bands make that money... like Bruce and U2...just kidding! I'd rather see Ronnie sober and HAPPY, in his last years, than play 50 or60 shows behind the faux sobriety visage...

The Rolling Stones: 'We're not playing 2010 Glastonbury festival'

Band announce they 'won't be touring this year'
January 5, 2010 |



The Rolling Stones have declared that they will not be playing at the Glastonbury festival this year, following rumours that they were set for a headline slot.

The band addressed the issue directly, saying that the festival rumours were false and that they would not be touring at all in 2010.

"Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010," a spokesperson for the band told NME.COM.

Meanwhile, the band are set to release a reissue of their 1972 classic 'Exile On Main Street' in May featuring a host of unreleased songs including 'Plunder My Soul', 'Following The River' and 'Sophia Loren'.

U2 have been announced as one headliner for Glastonbury and a second unnamed act has also been confirmed for the Pyramid Stage top spot, while organiser Emily Eavis has said that Dizzee Rascal will probably be appearing at the festival too.

If they don't want to tour because of age or the economy, fine -- fair enough. But if it's because of Ronnie, that's ridiculous. Waiting a year, at their age, is foolish. I can't imagine more than trivial amount of people staying home if Ronnie is axed, and by virtue of not being Ronnie, his replacement would necessarily be a musical improvement.

Anybody remember the first news we heard about the B2B Tour?  It was a press announcement that the Stones would definitely NOT tour in 1997.


Here's a Daily Mail article which says they're definitely not firing Ronnie. So maybe they really are!


Rolling Stones will NOT tour this year (so no nice little earner for Ronnie Wood, then)
By Ben Todd
Last updated at 10:17 PM on 04th January 2010


The Rolling Stones tonight announced they had no plans to tour this year.
The superstars took the extremely rare step of issuing an official statement after intense speculation in the music business they were planning another global jaunt, which had been pencilled in to be announced in April.
The statement read: ‘Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear, there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010.’


The decision will be seen as a blow to troubled Ronnie Wood, who is notoriously poor at looking after his money.
Indeed, following his divorce from ex-wife Jo - which will see him selling both their former marital home in Kingston Hill, Surrey, and their estate in Ireland as part of her £6.5 million pay-out - a money-spinning tour would have been the ideal way for Mr Wood to replenish his funds.

The last Stones tour, A Bigger Bang, netted more than £300million.
'Ronnie's always been terrible at holding on to cash - so the Stones' tours are invaluable. And at the moment he's got the cost of the divorce as well,' a source insisted.


Rumours had been rife for months that the legendary rock group were planning a series of huge concerts across the globe.
It had also been suggested that frontman Mick Jagger was preparing to replace guitarist Mr Wood, 62, following his recent troubles - unless he went into rehab to seek help for his drinking.
He received a formal police caution for common assault after attacking erstwhile partner Ekatarina Ivanova in a road close to their home in Claygate, Surrey, at the beginning of December.


Since then, Ms Ivanova has been interviewed talking of the attack and Mr Wood’s alcohol and drugs problems. In total, she is believed to have received more than £100,000 for the series of interviews.
She is also one of the contestants on this year’s Celebrity Big Brother series, which began on Sunday on Channel 4, and for which her fee is £75,000.
But despite the humiliation that Ms Ivanova’s growing public presence is causing Mr Wood and the band, sources indicated there was some good news for Mr Wood because there are no plans for them to sack him.
A source revealed: ‘There haven't been any serious discussions between Ronnie and Mick during the Christmas holiday. They wished each other Merry Christmas and that was about it. There was certainly no ultimatum for Ronnie.'
However, the band’s statement this evening is at odds with comments Mr Wood gave to reporters at the beginning of November.
When asked then if the band were planning to tour this year, he said: ‘Let’s hope so, yeah... I’m ready to rock.’
The Bigger Bang tour went on for almost two years before ending in August 2007.

Mr Wood joined the Rolling Stones in 1976 after the departure of Mick Taylor.

Disappointing obviously, but best wait & hope for a better prepared Stones in 2011, LJ.

A tour at the moment is more likely to be akin to 'life support' than a 'life raft', unfortunately.... :(

Hopefully it'll be earlier in 2011 than usual.


I know G. I know.
You know me though. I miss them SO much and the clock is ticking away.

My crystal ball now tells me they want to focus on the 50th Anniversary and Ronnie's health and
plans have been pushed back to 2011-2012.

I will begin lighting candles and saying novenas.

I can't though I followed that rather closely, I remember the LA Times article that disclosed most of the titles of B2B, in May I think, or was it March, also remember the "Blessed Poison" working title, those were the days...maybe we need a "1997 : The year of B2B" to brighten our day !

Not quite how I remember it.  One of their PA's jumped the gun a bit and then Jane Rose had a bit of a shitfit. The difference was that until yesterday's announcement, no one in the Stones organisation had actually 'confirmed' a tour was going to happen in 2010. Doherty did mention after the denial of the 'Charlie Quits' story that they were planning on a tour that would commemorate their 50th anniversary though.

From IORR News :

16-Dec-96: Stones tour in 1997
It's now confirmed by Stones PR official Bernard Doherty. The Rolling Stones will start touring next summer. The tour will start off in America as usual, as they will play about 70 concerts there, before they most probably go on to the rest of the world.

I'm quite sure they will go to Argentina and Brazil, for many shows, as well as Far East, being skipped last time around. The date of when they start, or the format, is yet unknown. My estimated guess is they will do interesting places like Madison Square Garden, may be both "small" and big shows, like in London and Paris 1995. I say "small", because MSG actually holds 18,000 people; really great place.

PS. The 1997 tour news was already in IORR 27, which mailed out last week to subscribers, see:
PPS. Yes, there will be a new studio album as well. Mick and Keith has already done basic song writing. Release summmer of 1997, before the tour starts.

Three days later, the tour information, as leaked out by Mick's P.R. contact, was denied by Jane Rose, P.R. agent for Keith Richards. There may be a P.R. dispute within the Stones, but still, they do work on an album, and an album always comes with a tour...

Pollstar has affixed a name to the source of yesterday's press release - Rogers & Cowan (read: Fran Curtis)

No Stones In 2010

Posted on Tuesday January 5, 2010 at 10:01 AM

The message was short, sweet and to the point. Despite rumors claiming The Rolling Stones would tour in 2010, the band’s publicist says it just isn’t going to happen.

From public relations company Rogers & Cowan:

“Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear, there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010.”

Tour rumors are a frequent topic in London tabloids. During the past few years the same media outlets have claimed The Kinks, Pink Floyd and even Led Zeppelin were planning to hit the reunion trail to rock fans once more. Of course, Zeppelin fanned those flames with the one-off performance at London’s O2 in 2007 even though the band stated it had no plans to take the show on the road.

Keith's had plenty of opportunities in the last 17 years to work with the Winos and hasnt taken them.

He pretty much ceased all activity in the Stones downtime from 1999-2002, and the last couple of years have been equally as unproductive.

For someone who likes to talk about what a kick he gets from playing live, his performing activity outside of the Stones 'bubble' since 1993 has been almost non existent.

I think your conclusion is probably spot-on, unfortunately. Can't really blame him in many ways - he's actually become the most invisible of all the band members in the last couple of years.

Last two tour legs he wasnt singing AND playing at the same time, probably as a result of his medical condition. Whilst he can get away with that when playing behind Mick Jagger for all but two songs every show, thats a world away from what would be expected from him if fronting a band where he's not only the lead singer but the main guitar player. Unless of course his condition has improved since 2007.

At this point it seems they would prefer opening the vaults to actually writing and recording new material. Mick will do all the work on the vault material.

I'm very disappointed in Ronnie's self-destructive and childish behavior. We don't know, however, if he has actually delayed the tour. We were hearing last year that they would make a Fall 2010 tour announcement in NYC, with the bulk of the dates to be played in 2011. Recently the rumors changed to an April 2010 announcement and headlining Glastonbury. Maybe that was never actually on the table.

I will continue to hope for 2011.....what else can we do?

Always thought the Glastonbury rumour plus anything that suggested shows as early as June was utterly ludicrous, myself. Never believed it for a second.

I dont recall the 'fall 2010 announcement/shows in 2011' rumour myself. However, maybe thats what it'll end up being, after all. If they're going to tour, I honestly dont expect it to a one year delay. I really think its a matter of a few months. They did have plans to tour and its really a case of plans being derailed for a few months until they have enough time to get the band in sufficently good health AND to give them enough time to finish a record.

Just an educated guess on my part, but the wording of this statement reads to me that they're making sure Ronnie gets PROPER rehab this time and sticks to it - none of this 2-3 weeks bollocks. Last chance saloon for him if he fucks THIS one up IMO. Give him a few months to get himself shipshape and then finish a record and prepare for a tour.

Logistics for a tour on the Stones' scale is no small thing.
A few months delay likely means that StonesCo is still working feverishly.

Staging, sound and light crews that were available might not be then, venues that had dates held could release them, tour routing could be impacted...

Whatever the current circumstances, I'm hoping to see The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band sooner rather than later.

I doubt the routing itself is quite as complicated as most other tours seeing they will be only doing 2 - 3 shows a week. That allows for plenty of wiggle room.

Longest gaps until now :

Tattoo You -> Steel Wheels (1982-89) - 7 years, 1 month
Steel Wheels -> Voodoo Lounge (1990-94) - 3 years 11 months
Bridges To Babylon -> Licks (1999-2002) - 3 years 2 months
Some Girls -> Tattoo You (1978-81) - 3 years 2 months

At the minute, its 2 years and just over 4 months.  It'll probably be at least a 3 and a half year gap between Bigger Bang and the next tour. Maybe four.

However, the significant difference between the above 'gaps' and this one is that the band was never totally inactive (apart from 1999-2002) and in every case, at least some of them played on more than a few occasions. Charlie's recent and ongoing boogie woogie shows are the only standard-length gigs any of the band has undertaken since August 2007.

Being inactive for a while when you're in your 40's or even 50's is bad enough. Taking three or four years off in your mid 60s and then picking it up again as if nothing's happened isn't so easy.

Last gap was only 1 year and 9 months, between the Licks tour (last show was on November 9, 2003) and A Bigger Bang (first was on 10th August 2005) so this means we're gonna have a tour this year, just patience please

Longest gaps until now :

Tattoo You -> Steel Wheels (1982-89) - 7 years, 1 month
Steel Wheels -> Voodoo Lounge (1990-94) - 3 years 11 months
Bridges To Babylon -> Licks (1999-2002) - 3 years 2 months
Some Girls -> Tattoo You (1978-81) - 3 years 2 months


Last gap was only 1 year and 9 months, between the Licks tour (last show was on November 9, 2003) and A Bigger Bang (first was on 10th August 2005) so this means we're gonna have a tour this year, just patience please

I remember my first Stones show in '82 and thinking at the time - as many did -  that it was absolutely inconceivable that Mick Jagger, just a few days shy of his 39th birthday, could possibly be able to run around performing when into his 40's.

It was if we expected their bones to go all brittle once they hit 40. Sports stars didnt play beyond 35-40, so there was no way a rock n roll singer could sustain any kind of comparable energy level when they reached that age.

70 is the new 40!

Yes, barring any accidents he could probably do it until he is 75 or more...and I suppose we'll find it as normal as we do now. Crazy!

Keith's been wrong about a lot of things, like poisoning himself slowly and ruining his health, but he did say in the 80s that he wanted to see where the Stones could take Rock'n'Roll...musically not very far we've found, but as a "show" it's certainly quite extraordinary.

I've been a fan for nearly 30 years now and I was 10 at the time, so the age difference wasn't that big, you've got to wonder what a 10 year old kid thinks of a singer who's likely older than his grand father. The same thing I thought when I looked at ol' blue eyes? Maybe not because he's a rocker ;-) When I took my 9 year old to the McCartney concert in December she didn't seem to be bothered about his age. I'll ask her specifically tonight ;-)

Yeah, Mick has always looked after himself, never allowing a inch of fat on him, he exercises like crazy & really keeps in shape, when I saw 'Shine A light" I thought that guy must have a 28 inch waist, & sure enough he does, I can't say the same about Keith, he looks like he lived 3 life times over, a aging vampire.

Yet Mick too will more than likely have a more high quality performance on a smaller stage. Athletes from all kinds of sports will tell you that it takes longer to recover after a contest. Mick more or less runs a marathon on those stages, and sings while he's at it too. The adhd-act amuses me, but I rather see Mick focussing on his voice. He can in smaller venues.

His R&R HOF gig put a smile on my face: he blew U2 away. Worst Gimme Shelter version I ever heared btw.

I have to admit that I enjoyed the Edge's guitar work on that one. I was at the show, and in the live situation all I could focus on was Mick, but watching the performance on HBO I really thought Edge did a nice job.

Glad you liked it, but U2 always gets on my nerves these days. IMO they butchered the song, and Fergie couldn't handle it either. The show proved Bono's limited vocal abilities: Mick and Bruce made him look like a poor backing vocalist. But that's me I guess..

tour.

All I know is if I should be so lucky as to see that Band hit the stage again, I will be on my knees giving thanks. Since 1975 I have been fortunate to be in the prescence of sheer rock and roll brilliance.

NO OTHER BAND WILL EVER COME CLOSE TO THEM. EVER!!!!!!!!!

Yeah.

If he can still jump around and it doesnt detract from the performance, more power to him.

If anything, his onstage singing improved dramatically from 1989 when he toned down the over the top posturing and arse wiggling that had been the norm on previous tours and which made him sound winded after about half an hour. He learned how to pace himself better from then on, whilst still remaining a fantastic entertainer.

When you're touching 70 though, its time to let the music do the talking a little more than it already does at present, instead of relying on people gasping in awe at how fit you are for your age and how dazzling the spectacle is.

Mick's still an incredible performer even when he's performing on a tiny stage. Watch that Double Door club footage from Chicago in 1997 and see what I mean.

Mine too. Unfortunately it won't happen as long as their target audience demographic is one that they seem to reckon can't 'get' blues music (seemingly they're oblivious to the band's origins). Apart from 'Back of my hand' (jettisoned after a few performances in the first 6 months) and the performances of 'Champagne and Reefer' with Buddy Guy at the Beacon, did they play any blues songs on their last tour?

Yes, I agree.  It was like that at the Roseland show.  Mick was just the singer in the band, not the center of attention.

If the Stones tour again I hope they follow the Licks tour model.  Stadium, Arena, and Club.  Something for all their fans.  In a perfect world all club show tickets would be sold to legacy fan club members residing in the general vicinity of the show.  With current technology this could easily be done.  Those fan club members unable to get tickets could be offered the best seats for the arena show.  Since this is most likely a pipe dream I'll take it all the way.  Rather than waste club tickets on vips and celebs give them their own private show.  Everyone could arrive late, look cool, and leave early.  The Stones could play a 30 minute set and call it a night.

Mick certainly doesn't give a shit, but I'm really amazed at the way Keith follows the plan.

Rarely do the tabloids fail to make some sort of comment on Ronnie's condition.

Maybe The Sun was too focused on the mystery woman's identity to notice...

Katia who? Ronnie Wood back to his old tricks as he dates new Russian girl in her 20s

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1242300/Katia-Ronnie-Wood-old-tricks-dates-new-Russian-girl-twenties.html

It's only been six weeks since Ronnie Wood split from his girlfriend Katia Ivanova after a rocky 18-month romance.
But it appears the Rolling Stone is already back to his old tricks and dating another Russian woman in her 20s.
The troubled rocker, 62, was spotted cosying up to PR girl Hannah Kamelmacher, 26, at a snooker tournament on Sunday and yesterday was alleged to have spent the night at a hotel with her.

New romance: Ronnie Wood sat next to new squeeze, Russian PR girl Hannah Kamelmacher, at the Masters Snooker tournament in Wembley Arena on Sunday

While his ex was making a bid for fame on Celebrity Big Brother, Wood looked like he had moved on as he chatted to his twentysomething companion as they watched Jimmy White play Mark King at the PokerStars.com Masters tournament at Wembley Arena.
Wood's new friend is the second young woman he's been spotted with in the past two weeks.
The veteran musician was also spotted with another brunette named 'Camilla' at J Sheekey fish restaurant at Christmas.

Perhaps Wood's outings with Hannah was a way of letting 21-year-old Ivanova know he is over her.
Friends have told how the star seemed unable to resist the young Russian beauty. One told The Sun: 'It's very worrying after what happened with Katia and how destructive his life became when he was with her.'
A word in your ear: Wood whispers sweet nothings into her ear having met her just days earlier

The pair have apparently been inseparable in recent days, and on Saturday went to a Chinese restaurant in Esher, Surrey.
And one of her friends claims she has spent the night at his nearby mansion too after meeting him on Wednesday night while he was having a drink.
Bizarrely, Ronnie's ex-wife Jo spotted the pair dining together at the weekend as she took a granddaughter to the cinema next door.

Immediately after Wood and Ivanova ended their stormy relationship, the Kazakhstan-born blonde rebounded into a new relationship with model Dan Turner, but in recent days has been enjoying a flirtation with DJ Jonas Altberg on Celebrity Big Brother.
Meanwhile, a report today claimed Ivanonva enjoyed a foursome with an ageing tycoon and two prostitutes before she met Wood.
Former prostitute Ellie Hughes claimed in The Sun that she and another prostitute were paid to romp with a man in his sixties and Ivanova after meeting in Churchill's gentlemen's club in Mayfair, where they all worked as hostesses.
Ivanova, who was a redhead at the time, was not paid for the rendezvous.
Miss Hughes, 27, said: 'Stasia, as we used to call Katia, decided to join in just for a laugh.

'Once he got us into his suite, he had a shower then burst in on us naked shouting "Where's the champagne?"'
'We all pounced on him. Within seconds we were all naked.

'The guy looked like the cat who'd got the cream. I was blonde, Stasia was a redhead and Kylie a brunette so he had the full set.'

During her first week in the show, Ivanova has often spoken of her relationship with the rocker - which is her only claim to fame.
Believing he is watching the programme, Ivanova told her housemates: 'My life is a bit... I don't know what's going on one day to the next at the moment.
'The last month has been tough because I had to start from scratch again.
'I grew up and realised it's not what I want in a partner and not the life I want. Nothing made me happy anymore.'
Former flame: Wood with Ekaterina 'Katia' Ivanova in November 2009
In an interview just before she went into the Big Brother house, Katia recalled her first meeting with Wood and admitted they had discussed marriage and babies.
She told The Sun: 'When he got out (of rehab), I gave up drinking too and we rented a flat together in north London and spent months just madly in love.

'We got a dog and we'd drink hot chocolate by the fire. We'd make up funny little songs together. We'd sing. No two people have ever been so in love.'
Wood was married to now ex-wife Jo when he met Katia at Churchill's gentlemen's club in Mayfair in July 2008.
Katia said she thought it was a compliment that Wood left his wife for her: 'It was a real compliment, that he really loved me. I didn't feel guilty because their marriage had been on the rocks for year.'

RONNIE!!!!!!!!! You devil!!!!!!!!!! Fvcking whores!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope he uses condoms but I doubt it!

Ronnie needs to be loved. He's needy for attention. That's not necessarily attracting the right women. Confident women wont want that personality type dispite his fame and fortune. Ronnie will never meet somebody good or deserving until he shapes up his own life. Why does everyone else see this but HIM?

Of course that doesn't mean he hasn't enjoyed multiple women on other occasions...  ;)

I agree. Their is more to this. Waiting doesn't make them better. Not sure it's just Ronnie. Not the economy. Don't wanna say Keith can't play. But this does seem strange to put it off for one more year. Don't think they are specifically waiting for the 50th anniversary. If tehy could go out on the road this year I think they would.

Charlie lets Mick and Keith do all the talking cus "they think they still have something to say"!!  Charlie is so fucking cool and funny.  and "ronnie is quite a problem."  He has it right--doing the smaller venues--"its about the music, not the money"--Charlie is putting into action his words, unlike his bandmate who, I believe, once said "talk is cheap."


if this impending tour becomes a reality, we must realize the Stones will want/need the extravaganza--let's just hope they mix it up with some smaller gigs along the way.

They're not necessarily putting it off for "one more year". They weren't, in all likelihood going to go on the road this year until probably around September, as usual. "2011" doesn't necessarily mean "September 2011". They may tour several months earlier than that. If things have been put off primarily because of Ronnie, that could mean a postponement of a few months. It only takes one reason to postpone a tour, and the 'leaks' to the press over the last few weeks would suggest that Ronnie has been the problem. If Keith can't play in 2010 and the econmoy is fucked, then neither of those are going to necessarily improve dramatically by 2011 for it to be of significance.

The press release issued by Bernard Doherty when he denied Charlie was quitting specifically mentioned that the band were making plans to commemorate their 50th anniversary as a band. That, to me, equates with a tour starting in 2011 and going through to summer 2012.

Well when I said one more year,even if they start in January next year,that's still one year from now. I don't see the big difference between that and a fall 2010 start. I still say their is more to it than Ronnie not being fit.

Yeah, but my point was that a tour in 2010 wasnt likely to happen for about another 8 months anyway.

You may be right, but I'd imagine Ronnie's health is the main factor. The talk in recent weeks that he may have been replaced would suggest that the rest of the band have had a bucketful of having to go through this shit every time they try and plan anything.

After seven or eight half arsed and quite pathetic attempts at rehab, it could be he's been given an ultimatum - ie, take a proper length of time to sort his addictions out permanently or he's history. If he's not going to be clean enough to be an insurance risk he'll have finally outlived his usefulness to the rest of the band.

From today's Daily Mail newspaper: 13/01/10

EXCLUSIVE: Our three-day fling, by Ronnie Wood's new young Russian lover

By Sara Nathan

The latest young woman to be bowled over by the charms of Ronnie Wood spoke last night about their three-day fling.
PR girl Hannah Kamelmacher, who at 26 is 36 years younger than the hard-living guitarist, told how she was lured to his Surrey castle after giving him her phone number.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mail she said she had been instantly attracted to the Rolling Stone and found him 'engaging'.
But the bad news for the veteran rocker is that she has already called an end to their relationship.
Miss Kamelmacher - who has Russian heritage like Wood's 21-year-old ex Ekaterina Ivanova - said the couple met last Wednesday over drinks. She is friends with Wood's son-in-law, TV producer Jack McDonald.
She admitted: 'I'd never dated anyone much older than me or anyone famous.
'I did recognise Ronnie - and he didn't appear to have been drinking. But we had a great conversation after which he asked me for my number. I found him engaging.
'He then called me and asked me out for a meal and I said yes.
'I know he had split with Ekaterina recently, but I wasn't reticent about going out on a date with Ronnie.'
Miss Kamelmacher revealed that she had visited Wood's £4,000-a-week rented home in Claygate. Friends admitted she had been 'starstruck' by the guitarist. Sources confirmed they spent the night together.
The couple enjoyed meals out and were first spotted cuddling up as they watched Wood's friend, snooker champion Jimmy White, play at Wembley on Sunday.
Afterwards Wood is believed to have taken Miss Kamelmacher to a five-star hotel. She was not spotted back at her flat on a rundown estate in Hackney, East London.
Miss Kamelmacher said: 'He was a gentleman throughout our time together. We watched a couple of movies, went for a meal and went to the snooker.
'He was very kind and gave me a scarf from his collection at Liberty.'
The couple dined at Ronnie's local Chinese restaurant. And bizarrely, Wood's ex-wife Jo, 54, spotted them as she walked past the restaurant after taking one of her grandchildren to the cinema next door.
Miss Kamelmacher said: 'Ronnie was surprised when Jo came in, but he only mentioned Jo and Ekaterina in passing when he was with me.'
The PR revealed she had broken off the short romance during a phone call to Wood.
She said: 'I will not be seeing him again. We last saw each other on Sunday, but it has been a very challenging couple of days and I would not want to see Ronnie again.'
Miss Kamelmacher refused to accept any payment for the interview.
A friend said: 'She does not want to profit from a few dates with Ronnie in the slightest.
'She was starstruck when she met him - you would be if you met a Rolling Stone - but all the fuss over their dates has come out of the blue and taken Hannah and her family by surprise.'
A source close to Wood said: 'Ronnie was very keen on Hannah. He said she had cooked for him, saying "She's just like Jo, she wants to cook me organic food".
'They did sleep together, but they only went on a few dates. He really just wants someone to look after him. He's lonely after splitting with Katia.'
Wood and Miss Ivanova split following a stormy 18-month relationship that led to a violent row in December, where Wood was arrested by police and later given a caution.
Despite Miss Ivanova's claims that Wood plied her with cocaine shortly after they first met, Miss Kamelmacher said: 'He did not offer me any drugs.'
Wood's friends are keen for him to go back into rehab

I wonder ~ why she doesnt want to see him anymore? Doesnt like the public attention? Doesnt want to look after Ronnie? Maybe he wasnt 'all that' in bed? Too old for her? At least she didnt cash in on him for the interview! Says she didnt get paid for it, so she must have high standards! She's cute too! So I wonder if this is the beginning of an endless string of young girls for Ronnie, until one of them hangs onto him for the fame and fortune! I hope RONNIE learned his lesson from Katia, but it appears he hasnt.

Rehab is usually a place where people are forced to go by other people, they go there to get the heat off, dry out & make up for it by going on a good drunk next time, they don't really want to stop drinking, I believe it was Keith who said "Rehab is for quitters"
if Ronnie wants to sincerely stop drinking then he'll do something about it himself, not have other people do it for him.

Rehab is also a place where people go to actually sober up, HOS.
If his friends and family wait for Ronnie to make up his own mind, it seems likely that it won't happen.

Maybe the eighth time will be the charm.

Rehab is usually a place where people are forced to go by other people, they go there to get the heat off, dry out & make up for it by going on a good drunk next time, they don't really want to stop drinking, I believe it was Keith who said "Rehab is for quitters"
if Ronnie wants to sincerely stop drinking then he'll do something about it himself, not have other people do it for him.



Keith can be a real dick at times when he's desperate to be quoted. That was one such occasion.

The most blatant examples of him being a knob are when he bad mouthes Mick's albums. Although it is sometimes justified in the sense that Mick's albums should be better for his talent, it is not justified in the sense of not keeping things in house. This is especially true because Keith always twats on about you never leave the Rolling Stones unless you're in a coffin and what not and all this loyalty stuff. That's why, like Mick says, he really is a bigger diva than Mick- at least sometimes. I've never heard Mick say that Keith's stuff is crap because if he did, he knows that Keith would start an unbelievably huge argument because he can't take criticism but dishes it out regularly.

Rehab is also a Billion $ business, that comes from A.A. that was freely given to anyone who wants it, & I don't think for one second that those trained & paid to care don't mind doing it for the $ they get paid, Rehab is for people who want it, not need it, otherwise it's not going to work, people are usually forced against their will to go there, to save their job or whatever the case is, & it doesn't help them to stay stopped, it's not hard to quit booze, it's staying stopped that counts in the long run, Rehab has become such a big business that they have reality shows on T.V. about it, they stole the idea from A.A. that was freely given to people, they make money from it, big big $$ it's become a joke.
In Ontario, Canada,  in the 80's, the Government used to pay for the whole bill for people to go to Florida, California, Arizona & other places, to go there for rehab, all anybody had to do is just say you have a drinking or drug problem, & it's all paid for by the government, there's a sauna, whirlpool, 3 meals a day, plus snacks, in these beautiful places, I know 4 people who didn't have a drink or drug problem who took advantage of it got a free vacation, when the government got wind of this, they put a stop to the whole thing & no longer do it.
I only have respect for rehab when somebody sincerely wants to do something about their life & WANTS to stop drinking or drug taking, that's what I call WINNERS, if Ronnie wanted to do something about his drinking, I think he would have done it by now, & oh by the way, I know a guy who went to rehab 17 times, who you call that guy a winner?

I wish people would just accept that we all are simply and nothing but the sum of our choices. It's his life. He gets to make the choices and other people may think they are not good choices, but that is not the point. Perhaps , just like George Best, life in the sober lane is just unbearable to him, even with the loving support of a very close-knit family. Perhaps he wants to live exactly like this , drink three bottles of vodka a day and die young-ish? Personally, I don't give a shit about his motives, and I'm with BILL PERKS now: FIRE HIM. When you're that rich and famous somehow you hardly ever manage to hit rock-bottom through your addiction, so being sacked and losing the band as well may just save him. And if it doesn't, then so be it. What do Americans call it? Tough love?

I remember the concert in the little wooden concert hall in Vredenburg during Licks, I was sitting above and behind the band, with clear view of all the backstage area. All through the concert Ronnie and Keith looked quite stoned, but Ronnie was so incredibly out of it that the sound engineers had turned his guitar right down cause he was playing shit. Every ten minutes or so he'd go behind and gesture angrily to them to turn the sound up and they just shook their heads. Jo was there too, holding his banana and fresh t-shirts, helping him to change out of the sweaty one and into the clean one. The man has been cosseted by everyone and it hasn't worked, I think what he perhaps needs is to get a total kick in the arse by everyone, lose everything and face his real demons. FIRE HIM! (Go, Bill, go....)

Jo your words are true and make a good point. We are ALL the sum of our choices! Sometimes, hopefully most of the time we make good choice's but everyone makes some bad choices too! It's making more good choices than bad choices that counts! Math lesson:
1 good choice + 1 bad choice = 0, we havent gotten anywhere.
2 good choices and 1 bad choice = 1 up, we're improving.
6 bad choices + 0 good choices =  6 feet under. The more wrong choices we make takes us closer to death!

But your point is good, it's RONNIE's choices, not ours. But, it is painful to watch someone you care about make bad choices repeatedly. The definition of insanity = Doing the same things over and over and expecting different results!

RONNIE WOOD: THE ROLLING STONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE TO GROW UP

Another woman young enough to be his granddaughter spoke this week of a three-day fling with him - but ever since a lucky break landed him in the world's biggest rock band, Ronnie Wood has indulged his every whim.

When Ronnie Wood left his wife, how appropriate it was that the other woman should be a cocktail waitress.

The Rolling Stone has enjoyed a long relationship with alcohol during a life packed full of excess. The drink, the drugs, the trashed hotel rooms‚ he has almost every imaginable rock star badge of honour. In fact, before he walked out, the apparent success of his 23-year marriage was just about his only concession to growing up.

His wife Jo was regarded as a calming influence who persuaded him to do the things that most of us take for granted, such as eating regular meals. It was Jo who encouraged her husband to check into rehab at times when his legendary drinking threatened to spiral out of control.

So, with her out of his life, it should come as no surprise to learn that Wood, 62, has been having a fl ing with another beauty who is less than half his age. Following an acrimonious break-up with Ekaterina Ivanova, the 21-year-old Russian waitress who cost the star his marriage, Wood has been dating Hannah Kamelmacher. At 26 she is a few years older than Ivanova, who is appearing in Channel 4’s Celebrity Big Brother solely on the strength of her 18-month affair with Wood.

Kamelmacher, who works in public relations, is also said to have Russian roots and admitted this week that she found the Rolling Stone “engaging” after they met over drinks. They were spotted canoodling at the Masters snooker tournament at Wembley and are reported to have spent the night together at Wood’s £4,000-a-week miniature castle in Surrey. Friends of Kamelmacher revealed that she was “star struck” by Wood, while he made no attempts to keep the fling quiet.

“He’s still living the rock star dream and many of us secretly envy him,” says Keith Badham, a writer who collaborated on Wood’s biography Rock On Wood. “You can’t imagine Ronnie Wood sitting at home in a pair of slippers. Some men his age are thinking about their bus pass but he’s thinking about another tour with one of the world’s greatest bands. The Rolling Stones were rock’s bad boys and that brought money and a lifestyle that Ronnie still enjoys."


"He thinks he’s indestructible and he has never really grown up. Why should he? Jo was a stabilising infl uence and he no doubt thought he had some catching up to do after they broke up. Being a Stone helps. There’s still an allure. I don’t think there would be the same attraction for women if he was in an ordinary nine-to-fi ve job. You can’t blame him for taking advantage of that. Ronnie has a real zest for life.”

Wood is the first in a long line of his family to be born on dry land; his ancestors were Romany gypsies who, from the 1700s, lived on barges. He started his music career in 1964 with R&B band The Birds. After a stint with the Jeff Beck Group as a bassist in the late Sixties he began working with the Small Faces, along with Rod Stewart, becoming a full-time mem- ber in 1969 when the band’s name was changed to The Faces.

For a while they were the biggest UK band after the Stones, enjoying hits such as Stay With Me and Cindy Incidentally, on a tour to the US they reputedly became the first act to  perform with a bar on stage. Even then Wood’s alcohol consumption was excessive. An average day would start with eight pints of Guinness, then on to vodka and a bottle of Sambuca to round off the evening.

Wood was a pal of Jimi Hendrix, at one point sharing a fl at with him, and got to know Mick Jagger because they met so often at rock parties. The pair collaborated on Jagger’s 1973 hit It’s Only Rock ’n’ Roll. When Mick Taylor shocked the Stones by announcing his departure in 1974, Wood was his natural successor not just for his talents as a guitarist but for his ability to match the other Stones drink for drink.

Down the years he made attempts to wean himself off alcohol and  at one stage it seemed he had a season ticket at the Priory clinic.

The first time he emerged from rehab fellow Stone Keith Richards sent him a fax bearing the scrawled message: “Rehab is for quitters.” Wood said at the time that he had been told he was only six months from death. Eventually, however, there was the tacit admission that he enjoyed the booze and socialising too much to give them up, despite the loss over the years of his drinking buddies Hendrix, comedian Peter Cook and actor John Belushi.

Wood has said  he was born to be a drinker. He grew up on an estate near Heathrow and watched his father drinking, partying and playing the piano at the Nag’s Head pub every night. He would sit on the windowsill with a packet of crisps and a Coca -Cola and watch dad pound the keys.

At closing time there would be a shout of “All back to No 8” (the Woods’ home) and  everyone took as much booze as they could carry. After the Woods moved out the new owners found 1,700 empty Guinness bottles in the back garden. A friend of Wood once said: “For him drinking goes hand in hand with having fun and he’d rather be dead than be boring. I remember him saying  when he went into rehab, ‘The thing is, I don’t want to end up being a boring so and so like Clapton.’”

Later drugs became a factor in his life. In 1980, Ronnie and Jo were arrested on the Caribbean island of St Maarten, charged with possession of 200g of cocaine and jailed for five days. When Ronnie and Jo separated in 2008 she got to keep their £10million home in Richmond, Surrey, while he went off the rails again. At the time Wood’s publicist took the unusual step of speaking out about Ivanova, claiming she was a “drinking partner”.

The spokesman said: “He met her in a dodgy escort bar at four in the morning when he was boozed out of his mind. He’s fallen off the wagon big time. He’s spiralling out of control and every time he returns to his drinking it’s worse than before. He’s not even clear-headed enough to check himself into rehab. He’s in a very bad way. He’s not even waking up until late afternoon. He’s very much spiralling. He’s on two bottles of vodka a day and he has a size 28 waist.”

Given the abuse of his body over time, Wood really can be considered rock’s great survivor. Even his jet-black hair, which he attributes to his gypsy ancestors, is that of a much younger man. In addition to the rented castle, complete with gargoyles, which he shared with Ivanova, Wood has an estate in County Kildare, Ireland, where he breeds racehorses. In Ireland he won the Small Breeder of the Year award in 1998 and is proud of the success of his horse Sandy-mount Earl, named after his estate.

Inside the house there’s a recording studio and bar, done out like a traditional Irish pub, where he can serve himself Guinness. Wood is also a keen fisherman, indicating that there’s more to the Rolling Stone than just partying. Another talent is for painting; before becoming a rock star he went to Ealing Art College in the Sixties and has dabbled ever since.

It was only when he was strapped for cash following a disastrous investment in a London club in the Eighties that he became serious about his art and his works can now fetch hundreds of thousands of pounds. Soon after the split with Jo his personal wealth was put at £20million.

Keith Badham says: “Ronnie has hidden depths. In addition to being an accomplished guitarist he is a mighty fine painter. Some of his work is very clever and he should not just be regarded as a drunken rock star. People forget that he’s just as happy when he’s in his studio painting quietly.”

Terry Rawlings, who wrote the Rock On Wood biography, endorses the view that there’s more to Wood than meets the eye. He believes that he was deeply affected by the death of his first wife Krissy, a former model who died in 2005, aged 57, when she accidentally overdosed on Valium which she was taking to combat her depression. Wood has three children: Jesse, from his marriage to Krissy, and his daughter Leah and son Tyrone from his marriage to Jo.

The split left relations with his children strained. Rawlings says: “In the space of about four years Ronnie lost his mother, ex-wife, and two brothers, Ted and Art. He was particularly close to Art, who taught him to play the guitar. Those losses pushedhim off the rails and left him vulnerable.” Nonetheless Rawlings accepts that Wood, who was cautioned for common assault after a bust-up with Ivanova in December, has never really grown up.

He says: “Ronnie Wood is like all rock stars. They’re eternal children aren’t they?”

I take aboard your points, Heart Of Stone, but I respectfully disagree on some things. Firstly: by your definition, someone who has multiple stints in rehab is not a ‘winner’ OK, I can comprehend your view there – but hang on: does that then make them a ‘looser’?

Ronnie is an alcoholic, and he knows he is, and he knows it is killing him... that makes Ronnie! When you know something is wrong and killing you, and do it anyway, it creates shame and that shame is fueling his drinking... it is not an unbreakable cycle, and only a person who is incapable of being honest, is beyond help... which Ronnie isn't. Like Jostorm said, it is his choice and he gets the consequences, some of which are how he fucks over other people along the way... like pulling the hair of a twenty year old, inabilty to work well in his band, destroying a marriage... it doesn't matter if you're a rock star or not... ruining your marrieage, relationships, work ect.. over booze effects alot of lives... making Ronnie Wood a selfish, self centered alcoholic who refuses help. I will shed one tear when/if he dies b/c of this... and remember, alcoholism kills in many ways and is never on a death certificate...

I wouldn't call anybody a looser, just unfortunate, but as Pdog mentioned Ronnie knows what's going on, & isn't being honest with himself, long before Rehabs were invented, this says a lot about Alcoholics.

"RARELY HAVE we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average. There are those, too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest."

My guy was so ultra sensitive and got his feelings hurt so easily and was SO depressed. He didn't want to hurt us but he couldn't bear to be alone after driving us away. its a sad way of life. they can't see how it can be better

As far as Ronnies "affairs" go ....seriously....while I do find it interesting and fun to kick about here.... but really I don't totaly "care" in the "caring" sense so much. How can I? I do not know the bloke.

*I wish him and his family well because I don't want to see anyone or any family all screwed up.

However what I am truly heartily concerned about is his place in The Rolling Stones and whats taking place there with him. That's all I really know of the guy. I realize one aspect certainly can affect another in situations but what ever happend to ....you know .....just picking up the guitar, getting together with the band, and working? It's his work, past time, friends, and livelyhood in a sense.

If my girlfriend dumps me it would have no true impact on my going to work in the morning (even though I may be a bit under the weather and out of sorts that day). However in the end I still gotta "live" in certain respects. I think this is what the guy will do. ....or should do eventually.

Now If his health is a concern or is failing thats another story (I still think that part is all over blown).

The Rolling Stones were his livelyhood before the Rusky ...and they will prove to be his livelyhood after the Rusky if he has his scrooples. In other words ....get rolling Ronnie. Ya still got ur mates and those mates just happen to be The Rolling Stones. A fresh album and possible lucrative tour awaits you. No female should put a stall to that. If the dudes heart just isn't into The Rolling Stones any more well then that is another story. I can't make him want to be in a band any more. Nor should I WANT anyone to do something they just didn't want to anymore (although in this case I just might make the exception here hah ;) )...however I don't think this is the case.

That's my take.

Fucked up though he may be, I think he's still, for various reasons, very much wanting to be in the Rolling Stones. His upcoming album isn't called 'I Feel Like Playing' for nothing.

I'm not so sure his three bandmates are quite as enthusiastic, to be honest. Mick and Keith appear to have settled comfortably into Pipe and Slippers Mode since August 2007.

________________________

Holy Toledo Mr. Gazza. You and I totally agree here. Yes. I too think Ronnie, after losing touch with everything from his curb on drinking to his family, certainly does not want to lose The Rolling Stones to boot.

That would be the final true seal to the deal in his spiral and I think he knows this deep down. Say what you want ....from fishing to painting but music IS the dudes true and ultimate passion. I honestly feel he certainly doesn't want to lose his place in it.

**After all....  for the moment at least... that is all the guy has left. He's lost much in the past two years and he has got to realize certain parts of his life will either be non-existent or never the same from here on out.

I think The Stones are the only thing he has to turn to right now. As well, it's the only thing un-tarnished, as well as it being his ultimate gig in life. He's gotta know this I'd say.

This is why I think he will stick with their ground rules.

London (ANI): Ronnie Wood is set to go on a solo world tour, it has emerged. The Rolling Stones member reportedly wants to reprise his music career following break-up with Russian girlfriend Katia Ivanova last year. A friend said that he now wants to do “what he does best”.


“Ronnie was banking on the Stones getting back together but while that’s off the agenda for now he’s still determined to start performing live again in the very near future,” the Daily Express the pal as saying. The friend added: “He will have no trouble putting a band together. He knows his music has been overshadowed by his personal life and he wants to get back on track. Ronnie is a musician first and foremost and touring is in his blood.


“Ronnie has already recorded a new album that will come out later this year. Now he really wants to put on some shows to help promote it.” Meanwhile, Wood was recently spotted with a young Russian beauty, Hannah Kamelmacher, at the PokerStars.com Masters snooker tournament at Wembley Arena.

Here's the original article in the Daily Express:




HAVING seen his personal life descend into chaos, troubled rocker Ronnie Wood is now planning to embark on a solo tour.

While The Rolling Stones have announced there are no plans to hit the road in 2010, Ronnie, 62, is still anxious to revive his musical career and play live again, we hear.

The veteran star has recently been better known for his ill-fated rela-tionship with 21-year-old Russian Katia Ivanova, who proved unpop-ular last week by being the first housemate to be evicted on reality show Celebrity Big Brother, but pals say he’s keen to get back to doing “what he does best”.

“Ronnie was banking on the Stones getting back together but while that’s off the agenda for now he’s still determined to start performing live again in the very near future,” says a friend of the shaggy-haired rocker.

Ronnie has been a professional musician ever since joining The Birds in 1964. He went on to play in The Faces, The Jeff Beck Group and The Creation, along with the Stones.

“He will have no trouble putting a band together,” adds the pal. “He knows his music has been overshadowed by his personal life and he wants to get back on track. Ronnie is a musician first and foremost and touring is in his blood.”

Wood, who has battled alcoholism with seven trips to rehab, split from wife Jo, 54, in 2008 after more than 20 years together.

Last December he received a police caution after a bust-up with Katia, for whom he left Jo. There have been concerns he may be in no fit physical state to tour and Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger is among those known to have been offering his support.

However Ronnie shows little sign of calming down. Recently he was spotted with another young Russian beauty,Hannah Kamelmacher, at the PokerStars.com Masters snooker tournament at Wembley Arena last week and was back at the event on Sunday with another mystery woman.


“Ronnie has already recorded a new album that will come out later this year,” adds our mole. “Now he really wants to put on some shows to help promote it.”

A spokesperson for Ronnie was not available for comment.

I really don't know why everyone is so up for this. From what I've read in the papers, his financial situation looks dodgy. Otherwise, why would he be renting a house rather than buying one? There also seem to have been reports about his money problems over the years. Combine that with his reported drinking and drugs problems, this tour looks like a recipe for disaster. My opinion is that he's probably looking to make cash to plug financial problems while also having a blast drinking the nights away with girls. Remember this is a solo tour with no Mick and Jo watching over him like they were apparently doing on Stones tours. The guy needs serious rehab not a continuation of his current life. I think that Stones tour announcement was a public warning and it looks like he is doing exactly the opposite. I'd rather see him treated and healthy than digging his own grave.

Dont think theres a prayer of this happening until he's had a few months of rehab. Nor should it.

The whole thing smacks of hopeless optimism, to be honest. No doubt when his album comes out (and theres still no release date even though it appears to have been finished) he'll want to do something to promote it, but I'd imagine he'll do a TV appearance and a couple of gigs as he did when 'Not for Beginners' came out in late 2001.

Ronnie has a habit of having nice ideas that sound great in theory but which never seem to come off -

- saying at the start of the BTB tour that the Stones would probably put put another album by the end of the tour and that fans could expect albums every 18 months or so from now on

- suggesting that the theatre shows on the Licks tour might contain classic albums being played in full, such as an 'Exile' night

- claiming after the success of the 'Ronnie Wood & Fiends' show at Drury Lane in March 2005 that he was going to do something similar at the venue on a monthly basis. Five years on, there hasn't been another one.

- The Ronnie & Rod 'You Strum and I'll Sing' album which he's been talking about making for what must be a decade now

- The Faces reunion tour. Seems to be a 'certainty' to happen every year now when the Stones are inactive.


If there's any truth to all this, hopefully it'll give him something to focus on once he cleans himself up, but I wouldnt be holding my breath for it happening.

All this talk of a Rolling Stones tour with a brand new album this year??

Well yes, that would be great but when? where? how?

I mean these guys do not seem to be working on it much? They are scattered across the globe mostly it seems. Charlie is busy with his live thing.  Ronnie's in London shopping or who knows doing what (that's a real mystery in itself anymore). Micks on vaca most of the time. Keith is mostly MIA or in Connecticut relaxing...


They aren't even in the same country as one another that we hear of. Sure the Pro-tools remote sharing/recording of demos is a possibility but ....that's just not how The Stones "work". They normally work on these things face to face. It's not The Stones style (although they do go cutting edge in situations) on this type of thing to do it that way. I don't think it would produce as good of results this way for them.

Unless they have alot of things already worked out and worked on some how....I do not see any progress towards an album yet....

"Who" is Fran Curtis, the band's publicist/spokesperson.

If you're looking for timely news from the Stones official site, keep looking.
The most recent item on the "Press Releases" page is over two years old.
FWIW, the statement regarding Charlie's "retirement" also didn't merit an update.

But - you can get these there:

::)

Fran Curtis released it. She's the Rolling Stones press agent in the US. It was done primarily to quell rumours that they were playing Glastonbury, and quite possibly to side track the press speculation that Ronnie's ongoing problems were going to lead to him being replaced for an upcoming tour.


rs.com dont put this kind of information on their site. They're nothing more than a merchandising wing. There's NEVER any news worth a damn on that site and never has been.  I'd have thought that would have been quite obvious to anyone by now. They didnt deny the story that Charlie was leaving the band either (which Bernard Doherty, the band's P.A. in the UK did) - so by your yardstick, I presume that story was true as well.

Ronnie Wood swears 'I don't drink any more' as he steps out with ANOTHER young female companion

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 6:39 PM on 25th January 2010

He was only single for seven weeks, but Ronnie Wood's indescribable charm is continuing to attract young ladies.

The Rolling Stones guitarist, 62, stepped out with not one, but two, pretty twentysomethings on Saturday night as he club-hopped around the West End.

One is thought to be his new girlfriend, the other a friend.

Despite his high-spirited demeanour, the ageing rocker told photographers 'I don't drink any more'.


Date: Ronnie Wood arriving at 100 Club on Oxford Street with a woman thought to be his new girlfriend

Wood started off the night at the Ivy Club in Covent Garden to attend businessman friend Nick Candy's birthday party.

He then moved on from the private members 100 Club in nearby Oxford Street, where he acquired two companions.

The new girlfriend is believed to be the brunette is leather jacket, jeans and suede boots.

They all ended the night at the Automat American brasserie in Mayfair.

When he finally left there in the early hours of Sunday morning, Wood was clearly in a good mood as he gesticulated in the street for paparazzi.

Despite his upbeat mood, Wood insisted he wasn't drunk.

He said: 'I don't drink any more. I don't drink any more.'

Wood has fought a high-profile battle with alcoholism for years and checked into rehab several times, the most recent being July 2008.

The couple ended up in a drunken row in the early hours of December 2, which ended their 18-month relationship.


Good mood: Wood declared 'I don't drink any more' to photographers

Since splitting from Ivanova - 41 years year his junior - last month, Wood's latest companions are the third and fourth women he has been seen with in recent weeks.

At Christmas, he was spotted drinking with a mystery brunette named 'Camilla' at J Sheekey's fish restaurant, and enjoyed a three day fling with Russian PR girl Hannah Kamelmacher two weeks ago.

Kamelmacher told the Daily Mail: 'He was a gentleman throughout our time together. We watched a couple of movies, went for a meal and went to the snooker.'

But the 26-year-old ended their brief fling after declaring it had been 'a very challenging couple of days'.

Ivanova, who was recently evicted from Celebrity Big Brother, had already split from model boyfriend Dan Turner after a few weeks together and is hoping to continue her reality show romance with Swedish DJ Jonas Altberg, aka Basshunter.

Meanwhile, Wood's bandmate Keith Richards has reportedly quit drinking under strict instructions from his doctor.

Richards, 66, hasn't drunken for four months after his hedonistic lifestyle of the past few decades finally began to catchup with him.

A friend told The Sun: 'He has always quite enjoyed the fact that he seemed to be able to carry on drinking as much as he liked with no real negative impact on his health.

'But he has watched Ronnie fall well and truly off the wagon last year and he doesn't like what he sees. Plus he has started to feel for the first time like it might do him some good to give up the booze for a while.'

Ronnie Wood’s still jamming away

RONNIE Wood put his marital difficulties aside for a few hours on Saturday evening to concentrate on what he does best.

Looking fit and full of energy, Wood unexpectedly dropped by Oxford Street’s 100 Club to enjoy a gig by soulful rock diva Lynne Jackaman and her band St Jude.

After listening politely for a few minutes, Wood leapt onto the stage, grabbed a guitar and jammed with the band for a few songs before posing for photographs with delighted gig goers.

Wood, drinking water and looking more sober than many in the packed venue, was clearly delighted to get back on stage, if only for a few minutes.

And no, he has not been watching Celebrity Big Brother, whose housemates included his former girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova until she was booted off.

I figured his actual health ...and the "Ronnies on deaths doorstep" thing was over blown. He looks fine, can sing fine, and "supposedly" hasn't drank in a good while.


Sure, all we know is a glimpse. We have no idea what goes on behind closed doors or what he's doing the rest of the time ....BUT that's the very point.... we simply have no idea.

From his night out and what he said he seems to be doin well. I figured all the story's in the time after his break up with the original rusky were pretty exaggerated. Just a few months back there were all kinds of news bits sayin the dude was totaly out of control, in a drunken oblivion, and on deaths doorstep.

Now we see and hear this news of him supposedly doin well and stone sober (no punn intended of coarse :) )during that time.

Dunno your definition of a "good while", but Ronnie's drunken public row with Katia Evanova happened last month.

One public appearance where he's not drinking is a good sign, though.
Here's hoping he stays the course...

____________________

I was wondering?
Maybe I was wrong. I "thought" I read his break up occurred 4 months ago (I was like ....gee where did the time go...?) and he had not drank since then in the snipet.

Still, as u said... good to see he "seems" to be doin ok. Thing is... he really needs "professional" help to truly stop (or at least really curb) his drinking as well as his family and friends. I hope he is getting that as well.

Havent read anything to suggest he 'hasnt drank in a good while'.

And how anyone can deduce that someone 'can sing fine' based on a still photograph is a bit baffling, to say the least.

Good to see him out playing and to read that he's been cutting down, but thats not exactly a cure.

Ronnie Wood 'annoyed' over press coverage

Friday, January 29 2010, 14:43 GMT
By Daniel Kilkelly, Entertainment Reporter

Ronnie Wood has complained that he is tired of seeing himself in newspapers every day.

The Rolling Stone admitted that constant press attention surrounding his personal life has interfered with a planned career break.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Wood explained: "I just wanted to have this year off to do whatever I wanted, but I'm getting so much attention all of the time. It's annoying to see myself in the papers practically every day."

On what the future will hold for him, the rocker said: "I want to reform my band The Faces. There's a new lineup but it's going really well. We're going to start getting together in March to rehearse for gigs next year."

Wood has rarely been out of the headlines this month due to his ex-girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova's stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house. He has also received attention for a short-lived romance with a 26-year-old PR girl.

Honestly how much utter crap can one person come out with in such a short period. What I find most hilarious about this "announcement" is not the career break but how the Faces will be rehearsing in March, almost a full year before the start of their supposed tour. I can't wait to hear about this new lineup. Axl Rose and Sly Stone on vocals.

Ronnie Wood goes back to rehab for the EIGHTH time

By Sara Nathan and Ben Todd
Last updated at 7:21 PM on 29th January 2010

Ronnie Wood has gone back into rehab for an eighth stint, the Daily Mail can reveal.

The troubled Rolling Stones guitarist today arrived at a clinic in south London in a bid to conquer the alcohol addiction that has plagued him for years.

Wood, 62, checked himself into rehab after months of pleading by his family, including his worried daughter Leah and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.


Eighth time lucky: Ronnie Wood, pictured leaving a members club in London on Thursday night, has returned to rehab

The last time the hard-living musician went to rehab was in July 2008 before the wedding of Leah- shortly after he had left Jo, his wife of 23-years, for Russian cocktail waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.

The pair are believed to have led a ‘party’ lifestyle throughout their one-year relationship, with frequent all-night alcohol binges before their split in December.

It has only just weeks since Wood, who has fought a high-profile battle with alcoholism for years, proclaimed he had given up his party lifestyle, claiming: 'I don't drink any more.'

Last night, a friend said: 'Mick has always been helpful and supportive of Ronnie when he gets in trouble and falls off the wagon.

'The news Ronnie's decided to go into rehab is really pleasing for Mick. He has always urged him to get help when he's had his problems - and this case was no different.

A source, however, added there was no threat from the band that he would be sacked if he did not go into rehab.

The friend said; 'They've known him a long time and he's a great mate. They are all like brothers and they just like to look after each other when they're in trouble and not threaten one another.'

The crumpled musician, who has been renting a £4,000-a-month ‘castle’ called Ruxley Towers in Claygate, Surrey, had been in a ‘bad state of mind’ since his break-up with Miss Ivanova, 22, in December after the couple had a violent row, which saw Wood receive a police caution for the incident.

Miss Ivanova has since appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, but her former flame has wasted no time mourning the end of their relationship.

Wood has been seen with a string of young women, including PR girl Hannah Kamelmacher, 26, who dumped him after a three-day romance earlier this month.

His latest love is a striking Brazilian artist in her 30s and the pair have been spotted together frequently over the past week, including cuddled up in the back of a cab.

Wood seemed quite enamoured on Thursday as he carried his new girlfriend’s polo mallets at the Ham Polo Club in London.

A friend said: ‘Ronnie has been in a bad state of mind since his split with Katia.

‘They were in a terrible relationship, but since their break-up he has not been himself. He has been lonely and drinking and has tried to throw himself into new romances.

‘Jo and the entire family are just happy that he is seeking help again.’

Here's hoping the eighth time is the charm!

Title: Re: The Ronnie Thread
Post by left shoe shuffle on Jan 29th, 2010 at 2:05pm

Since Ronnie said recently that he's given up the drink, maybe he's just looking for professional assistance to ensure he stays that way.

If this stint helps to finally achieve sobriety, good on him...

Title: Re: Interesting Ronnie Article (+ tour info) - UPD
Post by Gazza on Jan 29th, 2010 at 2:24pm
Sounds like his latest bit of partying was his farewell lap before going into rehab again!

At least this should keep him out of the tabloids for a while.

Seriously, great to read this and I hope he finally sorts himself out this time. He's running out of lives.

I hope to hell we're not reading about him in 3-4 weeks time saying he's checked himself out because he's 'cured' like he has done in the past.

Good luck, Ronnie.

Ok FINALLY we have entered his rehab phase. Quite familiar territory for Woody. Until now it was the usual "keeping you guessing" thing with Wood. Ya just never know with the guy. Talk about someone being predictably unpredictable.

think about it. Within a few short months we have had reports of....

break up with first rusky, gettting back with rusky, street brawl with rusky, permanent break up with rusky, solo tour, rolling stones tour, rolling stones recording plans, new date, new girlfriend, ex-girlfriend, Faces, and now .... the final phase,  being the only true phase we fans can make any rhyme or reason of (and just may keep the guy quiet for a while until the next string of crazy doings down the road.) ....rehab.

We all know this phase rather well for Ronnie. Ronnie enters rehab, Ronnie checks out in just a few short weeks saying he's clean and plenty well enough to leave rehab....


Ahhhgh Ronnie ...Ronnie ....Ronnie ....  ::) Hah    God Bless ya man.

But the good news is that the Stones are finishing up post-production on the new album in Paris, which is- by all accounts- the best album they've done since 'Exile'- and are starting the new tour in April in Detroit.

Oh- and the 'Exile' remaster will include the 'Ladies and Gentlemen' DVD.

As well as the by now well known fact that they'll be playing all of 'Exile' at some select club shows in NYC, DC, and LA.

And it's pretty much a lock that Mick Taylor will be playing those gigs.

Good on ya, Woody!

Ronnie's booze pill

Published: Today


'Cold turkey' ... Ronnie Wood

ROLLING STONE RONNIE WOOD is taking an anti-craving drug to help him quit boozing.

The 62-year-old pops a daily tablet of Campral - which stops neurotransmitters in the brain getting overexcited by the withdrawal from alcohol.

He is keen not to check back into rehab at The Priory in Roehampton, South West London.

He visited on Friday but just for an hour.

A pal said: "Rehab is a last resort - he wants to do cold turkey himself."

Cold turkey has got me on the run

My body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone

My eyes are wide open
Can't get to sleep
One thing i'm sure of
I'm in at the deep freeze

Cold turkey has got me on the run

Cold turkey has got me on the run

Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Oh i'll be a good boy

Get me out of this hell

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Maybe not. What's a sarnie?


A sandwich



Thanks, Gazza...:) And a "buttie" {ie, a jam buttie or a bacon buttie} used to be used for a sandwich too, as far as I know.

I agree about Ronnie's taste in girls! The new one is really nice looking...and maybe old enough to know what she's doing... ;)

Remember Christopher Multisanti's intervention?  Paulie had to put the white shoes to him.  He was dispatched to treatment with a warning from the Skip that if he tried to leave he'd be whacked.  Now THAT'S an intervention...

i have never heard of those types of butties, but they sound easy enough to make.  what i do know is chip butties are very popular in the uk because they are faily inexpensive and filling.  the recipe is pretty simple... 1 hard roll, some chips [french fries]  salt, pepper and katsup.  simply slice the hard roll in half and apply the fries onto it and add the condiments and voila...a meal fit for a king.  i lived off of these when i was there....those and bangers and mash.

STONES ROLL OFF BOOZE TOGETHER

Tuesday February 9,2010


Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards have been giving
each other moral support


WITH Rolling Stones bandmates Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood both now on the wagon after years of heavy boozing, we hear they have been giving each other moral support as they cope with life without the bottle.

The two guitarists were known to have drifted apart of late, with Keith reportedly unimpressed by Ronnie’s wild lifestyle, which saw him leave wife Jo for young Russian lover Ekaterina Ivanova.

However Ronnie is currently being kept off alcohol by his new 30-year-old girlfriend, Brazillian polo coach Ana Araujo and looked impressively sober during a night out at Cipriani restaurant in London on Sunday. The famously hard-living Richards, 66, has also recently stopped drinking, following advice from doctors.

Pals say the two are encouraging each other. “Keith and Ronnie hadn’t had much to do with one another but now they’re back in touch,” we’re told. “They’ve both given up alcohol recently so they can obviously relate to each other’s situation. They’ve been giving one another plenty of moral support.”

In the latest tabloid installment of 'As The Wood Turns', "a source" is quoted as saying that Ronnie's off his anti-alcohol meds...

Wood gets the brush-off from pal
Published: Today


Stone cold shoulder ... Ronnie Wood

RONNIE WOOD is running out of pals prepared to put up with his boozy behaviour.

The latest chum to chuck in the towel is Bernie Pratt, who manages Wood's lucrative sideline in painting.

He has called time because Ronnie has been too drunk to put brush to canvas.

A source said: "Ronnie hasn't gone near his oils since well before Christmas. He's not been taking the medication that was supposed to keep him booze free."

I'm not surprised - Ron's been busy partying with a string of ladies since splitting with EKATERINA IVANOVA late last year.

RONNIE WOOD TO MAKE MUSIC WITH KATIA
Wednesday February 17,2010

HAVING been reunited with his former lover Ekaterina Ivanova it seems Ronnie Wood could be ready to help the young Russian launch a music career.

Ronnie, 62, was spotted visiting Katia’s West London home, despite being in a relationship with 30-year-old Brazilian beauty Ana Araujo.

Now insiders claim that Ronnie and former cocktail waitress Katia have talked about the prospect of her embarking on a recording career with his help.

“Katia is an ambitious girl and she and Ronnie have discussed her going into music,” explains a friend. “Ronnie knows the business better than most and there’s talk of him writing some material for her.”

The pair split following an explosive bust-up in the street in November, which resulted in the Rolling Stones guitarist receiving a police caution.

Katia, 21, went on to describe him as an “evil goblin king”, while Ronnie reportedly accused her of being a “gold digger”.

Our mole adds: “Ronnie’s at his happiest making music. If that also involves Katia, all the better for him.”

It will certainly be a far cry from working with Sir Mick Jagger.

RONNIE WOOD TO MAKE MUSIC WITH KATIA
Wednesday February 17,2010

HAVING been reunited with his former lover Ekaterina Ivanova it seems Ronnie Wood could be ready to help the young Russian launch a music career.

Ronnie, 62, was spotted visiting Katia’s West London home, despite being in a relationship with 30-year-old Brazilian beauty Ana Araujo.

Now insiders claim that Ronnie and former cocktail waitress Katia have talked about the prospect of her embarking on a recording career with his help.



“Katia is an ambitious girl and she and Ronnie have discussed her going into music,” explains a friend. “Ronnie knows the business better than most and there’s talk of him writing some material for her.”

The pair split following an explosive bust-up in the street in November, which resulted in the Rolling Stones guitarist receiving a police caution.

Katia, 21, went on to describe him as an “evil goblin king”, while Ronnie reportedly accused her of being a “gold digger”.

Our mole adds: “Ronnie’s at his happiest making music. If that also involves Katia, all the better for him.”

It will certainly be a far cry from working with Sir Mick Jagger.

Ronnie Wood: Can’t get no satisfaction
After a costly divorce, the Rolling Stone is set to lose £1m on his Chelsea home
Anna Mikhailova


The age of his girlfriends may be fast diminishing, but so is the value of Ronnie Wood’s property portfolio. The Rolling Stones guitarist has put his Queen Anne townhouse in Chelsea, west London, on the market for £5.875m — and faces a seven-figure loss.

The ageing rocker is set to lose £1.375m in the sale of a home he bought before splitting up with his wife. This comes less than two years after Wood, 62, paid £7.25m for the property, on the same road where Keith Richards and Mick Jagger once lived.

The 4,228 sq ft house has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three receptions. There is planning permission to dig down and create a two-storey basement with an underground swimming pool, which would almost double the size of the house.

Wood had intended to carry out the work, and gutted the house, but the project never got under way. The price has been reduced since the property went on the market in October at £6.5m.

The house stands in one of upmarket Chelsea’s oldest terraces, built between the mid-17th and early 18th centuries. Famous former occupants of the row include Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Hilaire Belloc, the writer best known for his Cautionary Tales for Children. The painter Walter Greaves, who was taught by James McNeill Whistler, lived at Wood’s house until his death in 1930.

“It’s a big project, aimed at a property-savvy owner,” says Simon Rose, partner at the Chelsea office of Strutt & Parker, the selling agent for the house. “This is a fantastic opportunity, but probably more for someone who has done a project before.” He estimates that the work, which would cost millions, could boost the resale price to more than £10m.

A source close to the sale said Wood originally bought the house as an investment for his children. The transaction was made in March 2008 in the name of Sanctum Properties, a company in the name of both Wood and his son Tyrone, 26.

Last year, Wood’s personal fortune was estimated at £35m, down by £5m from 2008. As well as the Chelsea townhouse and the £10m marital home in Surrey, it includes a £3m estate in Co Kildare, Ireland, which Wood has reportedly been trying to sell on the quiet since last year. He also owns music and painting companies, and co-owns a London art gallery, Scream, with Tyrone and his stepson Jamie.

Wood has already paid out £6.5m in a costly divorce following the breakdown of his marriage last year to his wife of 24 years, Jo, 54, who is still living in the family home in Kingston, southwest London, and is reportedly planning to sell it. Last November, the couple, who met at the height of the Rolling Stones’ fame in the 1970s, were granted a decree nisi separation by the High Court after the musician admitted adultery.

A stormy two-year relationship with Ekaterina Ivanova, a Russian waitress 40 years his junior, whom he met in a London club, culminated in Wood being taken into custody for allegedly throttling her in the street during an argument. He spent several hours behind bars, but was not charged. He has since been romantically linked with a Brazilian polo coach, Ana Araujo, 30, and again with Ivanova. (He was recently snapped leaving her house.)

Last month, Wood, known for his rock’n’roll lifestyle, reportedly checked in at the Priory clinic, the rehabilitation centre favoured by celebrities. A spokesperson for Wood declined to comment on the sale, saying that this was a private matter.

But it won't happend if Ronnie is with the band unless if he could pull himself off the drinkin'.

Jo Wood wants Ronnie's dating tips
Mar 1, 2010, 19:49 GMT


Jo Wood wants ex-husband Ronnie Wood to find her a new man.

The 54-year-old model - who split from the Rolling Stones rocker last year after 23 years of marriage when he left her for Russian cocktail waitress Katia Ivanova - says she is now on good terms with her former spouse, but insists she doesn't want a reconciliation.

She told Closer magazine: "We actually met for lunch the other day, we're still friends.

"I'm on the lookout for a new man at the moment - maybe Ronnie can find one for me!"

Jo recently claimed she got over her husband - who split from Katia in December and has most recently been romantically linked with Brazilian beauty Ana Arujo - just two months after they split.

She explained: "I mean I was heartbroken. But truly, it didn't take me that long to... I can't say to get over it, not completely. But I did start finding my way out of it quite quickly. Two months! Ha ha!"

While she was initially saddened by the breakdown of her relationship, the former model quickly found her feet and began attending showbiz parties with her new celebrity friends.

She said: "I thought, 'Your family are all here and they love their mum. And you really are very lucky. So let's go, Jo.'

"I went to this function and that, which I hadn't really done before because we never went out. And I made all these friends! All these new friends. I was pushed into being a single girl. I wouldn't have chosen it, but when it happened, I thought, 'Oh, this isn't so bad afterall!' And I was off. I was out every night.

"Was it a liberation? Yes, because all I concentrated on, it was all about Ronnie. I wanted to do everything to look after him. And now - it's me. Just me."

Is Ronnie Wood planning to wed Brazilian girlfriend?




London: Rolling Stones member Ronnie Wood is said to be so smitten with his Brazilian girlfriend Ana Araujo that he is contemplating marrying her this summer.

Wood, 62, who was divorced from second wife Jo last November, has been seeing Araujo, 30, since the beginning of this year, and she is said to have a positive influence on him, helping him battle alcoholism.

"Ronnie now really thinks Ana could be the woman to make a life with," the Daily Express quoted an insider as saying.

"She's such a positive influence on him and they're very relaxed in each other's company. They're happy enjoying the simple things in life like staying in, making meals and watching films.

"He couldn't be happier and there's already been talk of them getting married as early as this summer.

"Ronnie hasn't felt this happy and focused for a long time and he knows there aren't many women capable of having such an effect on him.

"He feels he has someone very special in Ana and is ready to make the ultimate commitment to her," the insider added.

Model KATE MOSS, 36, has also been calling to support him.

All four have helped Ronnie, 62, stay off booze for two months.

He told a pal: "Now I know everyone's behind me, I'm desperate to give up for good. Mick calls me every few days."

The source said: "He is doing really well."

It's Satisfaction all round as loved-up Ronnie rocks Lillie's

Hellraising rocker Ronnie Wood clearly got lots of 'satisfaction' from his impromptu trip to Lillie's Bordello with his new girlfriend this week.

The Herald can reveal how the ageing star (62) still knows how to keep a crowd riveted by taking to the stage for an impulse St Patrick's week session in the VIP library area, accompanied by his Brazilian belle Ana Araujo.

The pair have been dating since January but this is the first time they have been publicly spotted out together in Dublin -- a clear sign that their relationship is moving up a notch.

"He came in around midnight with a young lady who was definitely his girlfriend and was in really good form," said an onlooker. "He was chatting with a few people and Lillie's house band were playing on stage in the Library so he decided to get up and join them. No-one could believe it when he hopped up on stage. He grabbed a guitar and played two or three songs, including Satisfaction and everyone's jaws just dropped.

"There was a huge crowd in there by the end of the night. Once word got out that he was in there, everyone wanted to go in and have a look. It's not every day you're treated to a free gig by one of the Rolling Stones."

Wood, who's also an acclaimed painter, has been dating Brazilian polo coach Ana for several months now and has told pals how he reckons she's a good influence on him by helping him curb his excessive drinking.

It's not known if he was downing his usual tipple of vodka and Coke in the Dublin celebrity club or is still on the wagon -- but sources say he was in "very good form" on the night.

The star has stated his determination to stay sober for his new girlfriend and has so far been clean for two months, with rumours that the pair could even marry later this year.

A regular visitor to these shores, he still has his Straffan mansion in Kildare, which he used as a love nest when he first hooked up with previous girlfriend Katia Ivanova (21).

Ronnie's made a couple of guest appearances in recent weeks.

The Faces reunion rumors seem to have lost some steam, but imo it wouldn't be the worst thing if they did get together for some shows.

OUCH!! I was editing my Paddy's day clip on YouTUbe and found the same clip, I was so excited that posted it as a header (I watched the board index before posting that header) without seeing your post inside this thread.

This goes to show that since Ronnie is so active that probably it would be better to post his activities as musician in new threads and leaving this one to post gossip news from tabloids and pictures of new grifriends

Air biscuit launching is a distinct possibility.  Probably brings back those glorious memories of Ekat and the time they spent breaking wind together.  Little did Ronnie dream that Kat would later perfect it to a contest entering level ;).

Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood thumped by new lover

   * From: No Source
   * March 27, 2010 8:15PM

Ronnie Wood reportedly received a black eye and a fat lip after a boozy scuffle Source: NEWS.com.au

ROLLING Stones star Ronnie Wood received a black eye and a fat lip after a boozy scuffle with his latest girlfriend.

Brazilian polo teacher Ana Aranujo, 30, lost her temper with the wayward aging rocker when she discovered he hit the bottle behind her back, reports The Sun.

She thumped him after first ripping up two paintings he made at his mansion in Surrey, south-east England.

The rock star, 62, then rang his ex-wife Jo Wood, 53, in a state of distress.

"Ana had been keeping him off the bottle. She rumbled him having a drink and an argument escalated quickly,” a source said.

"He was calling her all sorts of names for criticizing his drinking and she just snapped.

"Two of his prized paintings, which he had hoped to sell, are ruined. She ripped them to shreds.

"He crossed the wrong woman."

Aranujo, who works at Ham Polo Club in Surrey, met Wood at the Royal Opera House in London earlier this year.

They got together after his former lover Ekaterina Ivanova, 21, ended their 18-month fling after a series of punch-ups.

RONNIE WOOD has a black eye and a fat lip after a boozy scrap with his latest girlfriend, The Sun can reveal.

Stunning Brazilian polo teacher ANA ARAUJO, 30, lost her rag with the wayward ROLLING STONES star when she discovered he had hit the bottle behind her back on Wednesday.

She thumped him after first ripping up two paintings he had made at his Surrey mansion.

The wrinkly rocker, 62, then rang his ex-wife JO WOOD, 53, "in a state".

A source said: "Ana had been keeping him off the bottle. She rumbled him on Wednesday having a drink and an argument escalated quickly.

"He was calling her all sorts of names for criticising his drinking and she just snapped.

"Two of his prized paintings, which he had hoped to sell, are ruined. She ripped them to shreds.

"He crossed the wrong woman."

But he got no sympathy when he rang Jo.

The insider said: "She's sick of his nonsense and told him to get a grip. He's become a sad old man."

Ana, who works at Ham Polo Club in Surrey, met Ron at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden earlier this year.

They got together after Ron's ex EKATERINA IVANOVA, 21, ended their 18-month fling after a series of punch-ups.

She looks like she could beat the crap out of Ronnie, and he may well deserve it but destroying the paintings was UNCALLED FOR! She ruined 2 perfectly good paintings, and for what? Does she think that violence will stop him from drinking? I hope it stops him from seeing her anymore! Fvck her, she sucks, trying to bully Ronnie by hitting him and smashing his property. Move on man! This aint gonna work out. The WORST thing you can do to someone when they are drunk is antagonize them, it only makes them worse. Best way to handle it is treat them like a baby and put them to sleep, the next day confront the problem. She has no clue how to handle Ronnie. Thats why he called JO, she knows how to calm him down. Oh poor Ronnie, back to drinking again, this is bullshit already.

guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 31 March 2010 12.56 BST

Ronnie Wood, the Rolling Stones guitarist, is to present a weekly show on rock music station Absolute Radio and its digital sibling, Absolute Classic Rock.

The Ronnie Wood Show, which will be produced by independent production company Somethin' Else, will broadcast first on the digital station on Friday evening and be repeated on Absolute Radio on Saturday night.

Absolute Classic Rock relaunched this week, branding itself the home of the "Great British Guarantee" with a playlist featuring The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen and the Rolling Stones.

"Ronnie will deliver a playlist that comes straight from his heart, playing music that he loves and is passionate about, all accompanied by his uniquely fascinating stories, experiences and memories and using his trusted guitar to illustrate elements of the tunes played and to accompany him," said Absolute.

The Friday show will launch at 6pm on April 9. The Saturday repeat will air at 10pm.

Tony Moorey, the Absolute Radio content director, said: "Think fantastic music, and one man and his guitar in your living room, but that man being one of rock's gods, Ronnie Wood. It's not often that we have a genuine opportunity to strike a radio relationship with a rock legend ... The Ronnie Wood Show is that opportunity."

It is the latest Absolute Radio show to be awarded to an independent production company, after Frank Skinner's Saturday morning show and Dave Gorman's Sunday morning slot, which are both made by Avalon.

When will he get his own "Reality" show? Or better yet a good dose of reality.



He's had one serialised on a weekly basis in The Sun for about two years now - and it probably has more viewers than any of the ones on TV.

Ronnie Wood

Friday evenings from 6 on Absolute Classic Rock.
Saturday nights from 10 on Absolute Radio.


Think fantastic music, and one man and his guitar in your living room, but that man being rock god, Ronnie Wood.

Absolute Radio has signed the legendary Ronnie Wood to present a brand new show on Absolute Classic Rock, starting on Friday 9 April 2010. Ronnie will deliver a playlist that comes straight from his heart, playing music that he loves and is passionate about, all accompanied by his uniquely fascinating stories, experiences and memories and using his trusted guitar to illustrate elements of the tunes played and to accompany him.

From April 9 The Ronnie Wood Show will offer a unique insight into both Ronnie Wood's music collection and his life as one record leads to another, which sparks off another memory and another tale to tell. Ronnie will invite you into his life as every record he plays will comes with another story - a memory, a tale of debauchery or inspiration. Listeners will enjoy fantastic music mixed with entertaining stories from a rock and roll legend and throughout this compelling hour of music and nostalgia, Ronnie will be casually twanging, strumming and picking riffs on his acoustic and other guitars between tracks.

Nobody knows the direction which each show will take, but every week we'll be taken on a journey by a man who has been there and done that. From his life in the Jeff Beck Group, Faces, Birds and Rolling Stones, Ronnie Wood has got a lifetime of stories to tell and songs to play and we're delighted we're going to be able to do that here on Absolute Classic Rock.

The Indian "source" is simply parroting info that it nicked from The Sun.
It's noted in the article.

And as Nelllie articulated in his inimitable style, it's old news.

I suspect that if there is a farewell tour, we're going to see special guest Mick Taylor, and a small set of one-venue, high-profile shows with Bill Wyman also (to be sold on DVD after, of course).

I'm like The Men who Stare at Goats doing remote viewing of the Russians:  I sense that this is the commercial thing, and that they're poking about at it now, like negotiating a detente.

I suggest Le Zenith, Paris, for the filmed shows.  Mix it up with different costumes over several nights, like in Ladies and Gentlemen...

Ronnie Wood's girl in hospital after fight over Kat



HIGH SPIRITS: But friends say Ron's fling with Ana was jinxed from the start


Ana screams house down


By Carole Aye Maung & James Weatherup, 18/04/2010

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood's Brazilian girlfriend was rushed to hospital by ambulance over a furious bust-up with the veteran rocker.

Feisty mop-haired beauty Ana Araujo, 30, flew into a jealous rage at a picture of 62-year Ronnie's ex, Russian cocktail waitress Katia Ivanova, which he was still keeping in his home.


Friends say it was the last straw for the high-spirited architecture student and she has now DUMPED the wrinkly star.


Ron Again !



Screaming Ana got so upset in last weekend's heated argument that paramedics were called to the turreted house in Claygate, Surrey.


One onlooker told the News of the World: "An ambulance arrived and the crew went into Ronnie's place.


"They eventually emerged with Ana and sped off with her."


The couple started dating in February - just weeks after Ronnie's tempestuous relationship with Katia finally ended in December.


Over the last two months, Ana - who also teaches polo part-time - has been credited with keeping notorious boozer Ronnie off alcohol, encouraging him to spend more time on his talent for painting instead.


But three weeks after they got together their relationship was badly rocked when Ronnie was pictured making a secret late-night visit to 21-year-old Katia's Camden home.


Photos captured her beaming as she opened the door and flung her arms around Ronnie's neck before inviting him inside.


In March it was reported Ronnie and Ana had another row after she discovered he'd briefly fallen off the wagon.


Ana allegedly went on "a rampage" ripping up two of Ronnie's paintings and giving him a black eye and a bloody lip.


The pair quickly kissed and made up but friends claim the romance was jinxed from the start and punctuated by frequent jealous spats over curvy Katia.


It's becoming a familiar pattern in Ronnie's doomed love life since he cheated on model wife Jo with Katia during a booze and sex bender in July 2008.


The affair immediately ended Ronnie's 23-year marriage. Jo told the News of the World: "Katia did me a favour. She has now become ME, having to look after Ronnie full-time. And I have now become HER - free and single."


And after a string of rows the new lovers split and it was Katia's turn to hit out.


She said: "Ronnie was like a child with tantrums when he was drunk, throwing water bottles and doing impressions of my voice.


"I grew out of him. I just thought, 'What's the point of being with an older man if he acts about 12?' "


A spokesman for Ronnie last night refused to comment.


http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/319295,ronnie-woods-love-row.html


Ronnie Wood's girlfriend Ana Araujo has reportedly dumped him following a furious row while led to paramedics being called to their home.

Ronnie Wood's girlfriend was hospitalized following a row with the rocker.

The Rolling Stones guitarist has reportedly been dumped by 30-year-old Ana Araujo after the argument, which saw her fly into a jealous rage over a picture he had of his ex-girlfriend Katia Ivanova.

The part-time polo teacher got so agitated during the row with her 62-year-old lover that paramedics were called to his home in Claygate, Surrey, South East England.

A source told the News of the World newspaper: "An ambulance arrived and the crew went into Ronnie's place.

"They eventually emerged with Ana and sped off with her."

This is not the first time one of Ronnie and Ana's rows have led to one of them needing medical assistance.

Last month, the musician - who had been sober since entering a rehab clinic in January - infuriated Ana when she found him drinking, prompting her to rip up two of his paintings before hitting him, giving him a black eye and injuring his mouth.

A source said: "Ana had been keeping him off the bottle. She rumbled him having a drink and an argument escalated quickly.

"He was calling her all sorts of names for criticizing his drinking and she just snapped.

"Two of his prized paintings, which he had hoped to sell, are ruined. She ripped them to shreds.

"He crossed the wrong woman."

Friends have previously credited Ronnie's relationship with Ana as helping him stay sober and even predicted the pair will marry.

A source said recently: "Ronnie thinks Ana could be the woman to make a life with. She's such a positive influence on him and they have very relaxed in each other's company. They are happy enjoying the simple things in life like staying in, making meals and watching films."

Ronnie started dating Ana in February, shortly after he split from Katia, who he dated for around 18 months after walking out on wife of 23 years Jo Wood.

Yeah well we knew it wouldnt last! Thats the beauty of being single, there are many fish in the sea and with RONNIE's fame he should have no problem hooking another fish. The problem is finding a fish that will be an asset, not an asshole! Jo was an asset. Katia, Ana, NEXT!! RONNIE! CALL ME hahaha! I'd be a perfect choice to look after Ronnie and satisfy his every need and save his fvcking dignity. I've got experience with alcoholics so I know how to handle them, ahh but RONNIE prefers younger girls. Thats a mistake, honestly they are only out for themselves and have no interest in the man behind the fortune, its for their own selfish gain. I wonder how he is in bed.....my guess is he passes out so you got to get him early in the day. From what Ronnie wrote in his book, he and JO had an active sexual life, which is great for a married couple of so many years. I do believe he said Jo was the initiator. Anyway RONNIE will be fine with the right choice in a woman! Next!

Could be...if that's the case we'll be needing another jacket (with extra long arms) for Ronnie too.  Maybe something in the pastel plaid he's so fond of.


Thanks for the good laugh!

And Mel...

No "fire him.  fire him now"? ( I'd use a Ronnie emoticon here, but I just realized there aren't any!!)


I thought I'd try a more "positive" approach.

Wish he'd dig a little deeper, à la the Dylan and Petty radio shows.
It's worth tuning in just to hear the stories, but imo that'd make it mo' better.

This radio show, just like most things with him, could have been so much better. It's just him playing mainly songs we've all heard with some lame stories to go with it- the Neil Young one. Some of it is interesting and I like when he picks Meters stuff or talks about Earl Hooker but it could be so much more. Compared to Dylan's show, this is like a cheap knock off. It's like his book. I saw the previews online and was upset that trees had to be chopped down for that shite.

Show 5 - May 7, 2010

“This is Ronnie Wood and welcome to my radio show.  This week we are focusing on the boys and some of the greatest male singers of all time. I will be bringing you people on the way like James Brown, Bob Marley and my mate Mick
1. Elvis Presley – Hound Dog

Yea that was the King Elvis Presley there and I remember during the 50’s when I was growing up hearing that for the first time, round at my cousin’s Dougie, he was a rocker, he brought the record home and it sent all the parents and all the aunties and the uncles into a sort of a wonderment, It was like “what in the hell is going on here?”.. and I thought something good, this is going to be good.”

Yea that kind of music broke the mold of what was gone before and um yea I remember the local cinema when that music first came out  when the rock and roll first came out all the seats being ripped up and the aisles being full of girls and guys  jiving and just getting carried away with ‘jungle music’ as it was called yea it just seemed it kind of set a precedent for exciting times ahead…”
“So this is the turn of the boys this week and next stop I am going to play great friend of mine and the band and he was a great influence on myself and Keith and Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page…all my guitar playing buddies, were influenced by Buddy Guy and so this is Mustang Sally by Buddy Guy”

2. Buddy Guy – Mustang Sally

That was Buddy Guy doing Mustang Sally.  And here is the first lick that Buddy taught me, [riff]  
so I play that lick back at him when we play live, and he said where did you get that from and I said ‘you’.  The same thing happened with Steve Cropper, he didn’t realize he had given me this riff [riff] but yea he didn’t know that was red beans and rice and when I played it to him, he said ‘where did you get that from,’ I said ‘you,’ you know the same thing.  Lots of guitar players they don’t realize what they are giving, they just give a natural feel out and don’t’ realize how much they influence young guitar players  like I was.

Another singer who has greatly influenced me and Keith was Freddie Scottt . He had a couple of songs that particularly took our fancy, one was called “Are you Lonely For Me Baby “and the other one I used on my first solo album which  was called “Am I grooving you?”

He just a great influence.  He has got a very soulful vein, running through him and he’s just very interesting and you people should check him out, you people in radioland.

3. Freddie Scott – Are You Lonely For Me Baby

This is Ronnie Wood you are listening to my radio show and now you can follow the show on Twitter@ronniewoodshow.  This week I am focusing on male vocalists, some of my favorites….

And now we are going to the godfather of soul, the hardest working man in show business need I say any more than James Brown.

4. James Brown – Get Up Offa That Thing

wow that sounds like a forerunner of Sly and the Family Stone, that brass section.  What a presence he had on stage and sadly we lost him just a little while ago. So they are all dropping like flies, you know, we just lost the picket, you know Wilson Pickett, we lost Ray Charles, and we just lost James Brown, and my friend Bobby Womack said, “Woody we better take care of ourselves, they are dropping like flies.”

5. U2 – Desire

6. The Rolling Stones – Brown Sugar

This is the Ronnie Wood show welcome to the show and that was Mick up front with the Stones and brown sugar and Mick is the best front men EVER Mick is always an inspiration to work with and always a ball of fire on stage and its like vroooo who was that, oh …..that was Mick going by.  I remember back in the Faces days, Mick was hiding behind the amps backstage when I was up playing with Rod Stewart up front and Mick would say “what kind of pajamas is Rod wearing tonight ?”  because he would be wearing those stupid outfits back int  eh 70s’ Me and Marc Bolan and I would go shopping and see who would get the most outrageous outfit you know and Rod would get the feather boas and the stripey silk-like pajamas so that was me and Mick’s standing joke and this next song Rod and I wrote together and it’s a good example of Rod’s vocaling and I think its called True Blue

7. Rod Stewart – True Blue

Hi this is Ronnie Wood just me and my guitar.  That was me and Rod doing True Blue

Back in those days we used to write songs a lot backstage.  I’d come up with a riff and Rod would come up with the words.  So that was a perfect example, just like Stay With Me really came together backstage while we were warming up to go on and play live and often we would use the Stones Get Your YaYas Out live album, for inspiration funny enough before we went on stage.  
Whenever I get together with Rod these days, which is quite rare, it seems that no time has gone by, we still have the same kind of camraderie and um I wish we could do it more often.

Recently I have been rehearsing with the Faces and we’ve Got Mick Hucknall on vocals and his  range is absolutely incredible its today like Rod’s range was back then in the 70’s.

And we’ve got Glen from the Sex Pistols on bass with us now so that’s something to look forward to.  We’ve been having some great fun at Faces rehearsals we’ve been doing stuff like baby I’m amazed, too Bad, Flying, and Miss Judy‘s farm, Stay with Me, I’d rather go blind, a great cross section of songs and everyone’s getting on really well its been a great reunion with Mac and Kenney again.   you know we have just been having a ball. Still to come I have Curtis Mayfield, Prince and Bob Marley so stay tuned.

8. Bob Marley – Buffalo Soldier

Years ago back in the 70’s I was fortunate enough to play with Bob Marley and The Wailers at the Oakland Coliseum.  Bob’s guitar player had had his guitar stolen and he rang me up and I was living in LA, and he said, “Ronnie you couldn’t help me out and bring a guitar up to San Francisco for me could you?” and I said “sure” you know and he said, “maybe you could come play with the Wailers you know?”. and I said, “Yea why not that’s my incentive so I will just jump on the next plane with a spare guitar for Al…Al Anderson, that was his name yea.. He was a nice guy.  And uh before we went on, Al, the guitar player says to me, “you better go meet Bob you know, you will want to tell him you are going to play with us tonight.” and I said “haven’t you told him?”  and he said “no” and so I went in to meet Bob and he was siting there with a very content look on his face  and I said, ‘Bob my name is Ronnie and so far you are the only member of the band who doesn’t know that i am playing with you tonight  and he just looked at me as if to say, Okay son you prove yourself and I’ll let you stay on but if you’re not good you’re off, so I got the nod of approval from him when I blended in and it was a very satisfying feeling.

9. Iggy Pop – The Passenger

10 Curtis Mayfield – Move On Up

So that was Curtis Mayfield with Move On Up and him being the lead singer with The Impressions’ he was a great influence on me and my first band the Birds.  They were a big mainstay of our setlist, we used to do that song, “Its Alright Its Alright Have a Good Time Cuz its Alright yea its alright when you wake up early in the morning”… “Yeah that was one of the songs I used to play with the birds backing the 60s and yea it was a mainstay of our setlist.  Well Curtis Mayfield just like David Ruffin he was the front man for the Temptations they were influential beyond the wildest imagination. At the same time you got Marvin Gaye and the Four Tops,  Curtis Mayfield went on to infl8uence people like Prince and you name it.

We are taking a trip down memory lane the soundtrack to my life and just really enjoying going back in time.  Now I am going to take you on with Superstition by Stevie Wonder.

11.Stevie Wonder – Superstition

Hi its Ronnie Wood….me and my guitar.

Yea that was Stevie Wonder with Superstition and um Olly Brown who plays drums on that record he was percussionist on a Stones tour for awhile, accompanying Charlie, very funny guy, and I ended up playing with that brass section as well, on some of my solo albums, Steve Madeo (?)  the trumpet player some great brass people, including Bobby Keyes who still plays with us, Mr. Brown Sugar we call him you heard that earlier in the show. well I was in the studio with Stevie once and he has this 7th sense where he knows where everyone is. and I was introduced to him he pointed at everybody exactly where they were in the room and it was quite a big studio and a lot of people there and his girlfriend at the time was called Wonder Love that’s what we called her.

12. Prince – Kiss

Yea this is Ronnie Wood and you are listening to my show.  Yea that was Prince and Prince is very inspirational and I know that Eric Clapton is very influenced by his playing and he is very respectful of Prince’s playing and I used to do some after show concerts with Prince when he came to London and we used to play Miss You and uh he’d say, “what are we going to do when the middle 8 comes up and I’d say, “leave it out?” and he says “okay then, that’s fine with me.”  Its nice to exchange licks on the guitar with Prince.  He’s an ancient form of weaver like me and Keith and most of the guitar players that I converse with and I was lucky enough to those after show shows that he does and just like a flip of the coin suddenly you are going  to some club, like he just says we’re all going over there let’s go and set up and play and um one of the times Mavis Staples, this little lady, was singing, and I’d say “that’s a big name Staples”?  and he’d say “yea it is”  and the  Staples Singers is one of my great influences as well you know so its nice how it all comes around.

So the show is nearly over. This is Ronnie Wood.   You’ve been listening to my show, and I wish I could turn back the hands of time so I am going to play you, Turn Back the Hands of Time by Tyrone Davis.  

Mr. Jagger turned me on to him and I finally met him.  Bobby Womack introduced me to him in Chicago. It’s a bit like meeting an idol, because his voice is so incredible. Its one of the reasons I named my boy Tyrone.  I don’t know I just think he has a very sensual voice as you will hear. This is called I Wish I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time by Tyrone Davis.

13. Tyrone Davis – Turn Back The Hands of Time

I’ll see you next week. Hey boys help me get this together will ya?.

Did the Rolling Stones Fire Ronnie Wood?

Blog by Starcasm
(14 Hours Ago) in Entertainment

You’d think the only thing the Stones would want to drop this week was an absolutely awesome reissue of their classic 1972 opus, Exile On Main Street. But no! They have also seemingly dropped one of their guitarists, the legendary Ronnie Wood.

The writing on Ronnie’s tenure with the band seems to be all over the wall at the Rolling Stones’ official website, where just yesterday Ronnie was listed as a “present” member in the Rolling Stones membership along with Mick, Charlie and Keef. But fans of the twin guitar attack that has been a defining attribute of the post-Mick Taylor Stones sound must be distressed upon hearing that, as of today, Ronnie is no longer listed as “present” at the site, but his contribution is most rudely capped off with the year 2010.


RollingStones.com now lists Ronnie Wood as a member from 1976-2010

No official announcement has been made, but this starkly rendered piece of information straight from the Stones’ official website could be the most passive-aggressively rendered band announcement in memory.

Why would Ronnie be given his walking (or rather, rolling) papers? Could it be a further descent into the kind of addiction-induced hi-jinks that have embarrassed the Stones organization of late? Getting busted with drugs and a 19-year old girl may have been good for business in their late ’60s-early ’70s heyday, but for 62-year old Ronnie, perhaps it’s one coke binge and teenage babe too many. Throw in alleged adultery against longtime wife Joann and a caution given by British police after an assault in the streets of Esher, UK, and it would seem obvious the Stones would have to officially do something to keep rolling with their second guitarist at risk of lockup (…or worse).

After all, with their 50th anniversary as a band nigh, hundreds of millions of dollars are riding on another Stones tour. It has to be difficult enough to get a bunch of rock gods like the Stones together and on the same page, especially when they’re busy siring children out-of-wedlock with Brazilian supermodels or falling out of coconut trees or receiving treatment for cancer. If Ronnie can’t keep himself straight, the Stones are obviously going to try and find someone who can.

If he’s been given his walking papers, one has to wonder if ol’ Ronnie can save face by going back to his old Faces mates? Who thinks Rod Stewart would like to put the old band back together, if only to give old pal Ronnie something constructive to work on other than digging himself a deeper hole?

Seriously, though, addiction isn’t all that funny, and it’s a shame to see someone of Ronnie’s talents and legacy get booted from a band he obviously loved, and whose many fans obviously loved him. Here’s a video clip of the Stones 1986 hit, “One Hit to the Body,” a song Ronnie co-wrote with Mick, and a criminally underrated piece of their recorded legacy:

And did you know Ronnie also played bass in the studio and (sometimes) live for the Stones? Here’s the all-time classic bass line from “Emotional Rescue”, a roller-rink hit from 1980 and a bass line that will not leave your consciousness anytime soon…and that’s Ronnie Wood playing on the recording, not Bill Wyman (despite what MTV would have you believe)! - www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0tQPodGgeM

Get well soon, Ronnie, and we hope this bit of website information is just a glitch and that you’ll be rocking’ it on stage with the rest of the Stones very soon!

opposingviews.com

So half the band has left in the last coupla days... ::)

Rolling Stones Own Website Lists Ronnie Wood As Gone

by Paul Cashmere - May 25 2010


The Rolling Stones Telstra Stadium April 2006
photo by Ros O'Gorman


UPDATE: Less than two hours after this story was first published on the "small Australian website" Undercover, the Rolling Stones have updated their website to list Ronnie Wood as still with the band. Regardless, here is the story based on what was on the Stones website before they "edited" it after the most recent Undercover story.

While the Rolling Stones have been in damage control denying reports that Charlie Watts would no longer tour with the band (and we will all have to wait until the next tour to find out the truth), but they have not been so secretive about the fate of Ronnie Wood.

According to www.rollingstones.com/people#Ronnie-Wood Ronnie has left the band.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts are all listed as being with the band from 1962-present. Founding member Brian Jones is listed as 1962-1969. Bill Wyman is listed as 1962-1992. Mick Taylor is down from 1969-1974.

However, Ronnie Wood on the Rolling Stones very own website is listed as 1976-2010.

So Ronnie left and they didn’t tell anyone?

There has been so much knee-jerking over the stories related to Charlie Watts’ future but according to The Stones, Ronnie has gone and it didn’t even rate an announcement.

So what is really going on in the Stones camp? There is apparently miscommunication from within which is why the stories get out and get published in the first place.

So has Ronnie really gone? What an exceptionally ill-timed typo if he hasn’t!

Bet somebody got wood about this story...

Drug-free and sober... it's the new face of Ronnie Wood: Stone has been off drink for 60 days

By Ben Todd
Last updated at 10:30 PM on 25th May 2010

He has become almost as well known in recent years for his personal problems as for his renowned guitar playing.

Most disastrously, Ronnie Wood was given a police caution for common assault after a bust-up with ex-girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova on a high street in Surrey last December.

But in an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail yesterday, the 62-year-old Rolling Stone told how he had been off booze and drugs for 60 days.

As he announced the return of his legendary rock band The Faces, he said he was indebted to his new love, polo coach Ana Araujo, for sobriety.

And he vowed that he would not fall off the wagon again.

The guitarist - who has been in rehab on seven occasions during his three decade battle with drink and drugs - revealed that he is attending a Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous meeting every day.

Wood revealed: 'I've done 60 days of clean and serene and I can't see any way of stopping.

'I'm doing 90 meetings in 90 days. I do a meeting every day. It's a helluva bloody thing.

'I go from Surrey all over London - I just go to NA or AA and just keep it going.

'Ana's a good girl. She is very attractive. She is lovely and very supportive.'

He continued: 'I have to pat myself on the back for it - because it's a long journey, you know. I've got a big strength in the fellowship. It's good.'

Wood admitted the last 12 months had been difficult, saying: 'Oh yeah, with all the transitions, going on.'

He said that as well as Miss Araujo, his colleagues in The Faces have also been helping him.

The reunited Seventies band - most famous for hits including Stay With Me and Cindy Incidentally - consists of Wood and two other original members, drummer Kenney Jones, 61, and keyboardist Ian 'Mac' McLagan, 65.

Mick Hucknall, 49, from Simply Red, will be the singer instead of Rod Stewart, while former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock, 53, has replaced Ronnie Lane - who died in 1997 - on bass.

Wood said: 'Glen is on the [AA and NA] programme as well and is a really good support. And Kenney's been great, and Mac and Mick.'

The Faces are due to play their first full, public concert in 35 years on the first night of the three-day Vintage at Goodwood festival in West Sussex on August 13.

They are then planning a world tour, starting in January. There have been persistent rumours that Wood is on the verge of being dropped from the Rolling Stones because of his personal problems.

But despite The Faces reuniting, Wood insisted he remains very much part of the Stones as well.

'The Stones are great about The Faces,' he said. 'They are encouraging. In the downtime between The Stones' activity, you might as well do something constructive and keep the chops [guitar hands] going.'

The Faces decided to reform after they were handed a lifetime achievement award by the Performing Rights Society.

In a dig at aides of Stewart, Wood said he could not rejoin The Faces because the singer's 'powers that be were playing up'.

Wood added: 'What we loved about Mick Hucknall was his voice range was just like Rod's in the Seventies.'

Wood said he is looking forward to playing live - and sober.

'It will be the first time the Faces have ever been focused,' he said. 'Normally, we would all have gone on stage with a bottle.'

It's really great that Ronnie is doing o.k. he's back at going to 12 step meetings again, 90 meetings in 90 days, I was wondering what connection that Glen Matlock had with all this, I didn't know he was in A.A./N.A. too, when you think of all the Bass players they could have picked, wasn't it Steve Jones of the Pistols that used to steal The Faces equipment in the early days? & they pick a guy that used to be in a band that stole their gear.

I hope Ronnie can achieve permanent sobriety to save his life AND repair family relationships that have been damaged.  My wish it that he resigns from the Stones and they accept his resignation with regret and affection.  He has much more to live for than another tour.

Right on Ginda, I agree, to be honest being a old Stones fan, I've never accepted him as a Rolling Stone, he always seemed to come across as a guy who always wanted to be a rock star & be in the Rolling Stones, now fans who grew up in the late 70's, etc wouldn't see that, because that's the only version of the Stones they know, I mean Ronnie is just like Keef's kid brother.

Ronnie Wood's sister-in-law forced to live on boat as he sells her home for ex-wife Jo's divorce settlement
By JO MACFARLANE
Last updated at 11:30 PM on 5th June 2010

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood's divorce battle has forced a close family member out of the home she has lived in for nearly 20 years.
Angela Wood has been asked by the Rolling Stones' management team to move out of the house she shared with her late husband, Ronnie's older brother Art, so it can be put on the market to help pay the divorce settlement for Ronnie's former wife Jo Wood.
The £600,000 semi-detached property, in Teddington, South-West London, was bought by Ronnie for Art and Angela when they married in 1991, and the couple were allowed to live in it rent-free.


Ordered out: Angela Wood (left) must leave the London home (right) she shared with Ronnie Wood's late brother Art
When Art died in 2006 of prostate cancer, Ronnie pledged to look after his sister-in-law in any way he could.
However, friends of the family say former model Jo - who appeared on the last series of Strictly Come Dancing - wants half of everything the couple own, which means liquidating all of their joint assets, including the house in Teddington.
Graphic designer Angela was called by the Rolling Stones' management shortly before Christmas and told she had until August to leave the property. She is now set to move to a rented houseboat on the River Thames with her new partner, builder Dean Callow.
A family friend, who did not want to be named, said Angela had been left 'devastated'. 'Jo is basically after half of everything Ronnie has,' said the friend. 'It's rubbish that she's only getting £6.5million from the divorce.
'Ronnie's being forced to sell everything so Jo gets her half, and that includes the house he bought for Art and Angi in Teddington.
'Ronnie felt so bad about it that he got Sherry Daly from the Stones' office to call her and tell her. He's so embarrassed by the whole thing and can't bear to speak to her.


Financial fallout: Ronnie and Jo before they split up over his affair with Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova
'Ronnie tried to suggest that Angi bought Jo's half of the house, but she can't afford that.
'Angi is very sweet and relaxed and she rolled over and accepted it. She knew Ronnie had been very good to her and in some ways it's good for her to move on at last.
'But secretly, she's devastated that she's having to leave the house she shared with Art, although she wouldn't say so.
'There's no bad blood there but Ronnie hasn't spoken to her since.'
Guitarist Wood left Jo, his wife of 24 years, in 2008 for Russian cocktail waitress Ekaterina Ivanova, then 19.
The pair had a fiery relationship and, after one particularly intense row, Ronnie was arrested after reports he had assaulted his lover in the street.
Jo was granted a divorce last year and it was reported that she had agreed to accept £6.5million in a settlement which involved selling the couple's £6million waterfront townhouse in Chelsea's Cheyne Walk. The couple also own properties in Kingston, South-West London, and County Kildare in Ireland.


New romance: Ronnie enjoys a night out with his Brazilian girlfriend Ana Araujo last week
The family friend said Ronnie was hugely upset by the developments: 'Ronnie lost four people in just five years who were very close to him. He lost both brothers, Art and Ted, his mother Lizzie and then his first wife Krissy.
'Everyone saw him going off the rails again but it's all connected.
'Angi and Art had a very good marriage, and she was very close to Ronnie. He was really good to her and that's what is so sad about this.
'Everyone will ask why doesn't Ronnie buy her out, but the truth is that he can't as his investments are all tied up.'
Jo is reportedly now in a relationship with flamboyant designer Christopher Wicks, while Ronnie is seeing Brazilian polo coach Ana Araujo.
A spokesman for Ronnie Wood said he had no comment to make.
Speaking from the Teddington home, Angela Wood said: 'It's true I'm leaving the house but it's my own choice. I don't want to comment on Ronnie's divorce.'
A spokeswoman for Jo Wood declined to comment, but a source said: 'The fact that Angi has been asked to move out of her home is a big surprise to both Jo and her side of the family. She was a bit shocked actually because she doesn't know the details.'

If Ronnie bought the house for Art he should have put it in Art's name.  And then... Ronnie was "so upset" he couldn't even make the call to break the news himself???   If this story is true it really is another Bozo moment.

>>Ronnie pledged to look after his sister-in-law in any way he could. <<

If the quote from this article is true, seems like he could still do something for her.
Even if his assets are tied up, I'm guessing that he still gets an "allowance" that could provide a more comfortable place for her than a boat.

Am I missing something here?

I feel bad for the sister-in-law, seems like she got screwed out of her house. If it was a gift to her & Art, they should of transferred it into their names and no rights could be claimed by Jo or Ronnie at this point. An oversight or calculated mistake on Ronnie's part, but either way I dont think Ronnie is happy with the outcome if he didnt have the courage to tell her himself. Ronnie must feel like an ass, once again, paying for his mistakes and the fallout from family who already must hate him for his foolish behavior. Ah well on the other hand she did live rent free for 20 years so Ronnie should get some credit for that too.

Most of us in our 50's have our own houses and don't need hand outs. And if Jo had any feelings for her I doubt the house would be an issue.

He talked about his forthcoming album on today's radio show, and played an "unmastered" version of 'I Got A Thing About You'.
Billy Gibbons, Steve Ferrone and Bernard Fowler are on the track.

He was very close to the snooker star Alex Higgins, who died on Saturday and issued a statement about how sad he was to hear of his death that was in the Sun today.

I'm wondering if he'll be in Belfast for Alex's funeral, which will probably take place in the next few days.
