Ronnie Wood film ‘brutally honest’ about drink and drugs battle


by Press Association
Friday, August 30, 2019 - 02:40 PM
Ronnie Wood talks about his battles with drink and drugs in a new film about his life.

Somebody Up There Likes Me is billed as the “first in-depth film biography” of the Rolling Stones guitarist.



The “intimate portrait” of the rocker, who has also made his name as a painter, has been filmed over two years.

Producers said Wood, 72, is “brutally honest” about his history with drugs, “disclosing his three-year battle to beat freebase addiction”.


The film features new interviews with bandmates Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts, as well as his partner in former band Faces, Sir Rod Stewart.

Leaving Las Vegas film-maker Mike Figgis, who directed Somebody Up There Likes Me, said he was “intrigued” by Wood.

“The combination of his eclectic musical range and his love of painting seemed like a promising start to a documentary,” he said.


“I decided to jump in and we began talking, the first of a really interesting series of conversations.

“We covered so much ground in these talks and that led to interesting encounters with the likes of (artist) Damien Hirst and then a lovely music session in a studio.


“The remaining Stones chimed in with interesting stories and the result is the film. Ronnie Wood is a very interesting guy, so many personas.”

Wood also talks about “overcoming lung cancer” in the documentary.

And he said it was “such an incredible feeling to look back on my life and discuss key moments along the way that I remember vividly as if they were yesterday”.

The film also features interviews with the rocker’s wife, Sally, mother of his youngest children, while the title is inspired by the musician “surviving his chronic smoking habit”.

“When they operated on my cancer, they took away my emphysema. They said my lungs were as if I’d never smoked,” the guitarist says.

“I thought ‘How’s that for a Get Out Of Jail Free card?’ Somebody up there likes me, and somebody down here likes me too.”


Somebody Up There Likes Me will premiere at the London Film Festival on October 12.

Ronnie Wood releasing Chuck Berry tribute album


...

Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood has recorded an album dedicated to his late hero Chuck Berry


The Rolling Stones were majorly influenced by the late rock legend and their 1963 debut single was even a cover version of his hit 'Come On'.

Ronnie might not have joined the 'Satisfaction' band as bassist until 1975, but he has long been a fan of Chuck.

Now he's recorded some of his best songs and even a tribute to the 'Roll Over Beethoven' hitmaker for his first solo studio project in nine years, 'Mad Lad', which is named after an instrumental originally featured on Chuck's 1960 LP 'Rockin' At The Hops' and features vocals from Imelda May.

Ronnie told radio station SiriusXM: "I sing most of the songs and I have a friend called Imelda May and she is singing a couple.

"'Mad Lad' is an original instrumental song by Chuck. On the album I have done my own Chuck Berry tribute song.

"Then it goes into 'Mad Lad'. It is a mad instrumental song and it sums me up."

Chuck – who toured with the Stones – passed away at the age of 90 in March 2017.

Upon hearing the sad news, the band hailed Chuck a "true pioneer of rock and roll" and a said he was a "massive influence on us".

They said: "The Rolling Stones are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry.

"He was a true pioneer of rock & roll and a massive influence on us. Chuck was not only a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer, but most importantly, he was a master craftsman as a songwriter. His songs will live forever."

Speaking last year, Ronnie, 72, admitted that Chuck would never "tune up" his guitars which he found "annoying", but praised his "originality".

And he also recalled how he would always insist on playing his chart-topping cover of Dave Bartholomew's novelty song 'Ding-A-Ling'.

He said: "Chuck had his own originality which was so fantastic. But he would never tune up, which was so annoying.

And he kept playing [novelty song] My Ding-A-Ling at live shows. You would go, 'Chuck, you can't keep playing that', and he would say, 'It was number one for f***'s sake!'"

'Mad Lad' is set to be released in October.
