Successful lung surgery for Stones star




MAY 25, 20173:50AM

Press Association


Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood has thanked doctors who treated him for a small lesion on his lung.

A spokesman for Wood confirmed that during a routine medical screening, doctors discovered the growth, which was successfully treated with keyhole surgery.

Wood, 69, will require no further treatment and is "feeling fine", his spokesman added.

"I'm so grateful for modern screening which picked this up so early, and would like to thank all the doctors who treated me," he said.

The Rolling Stones' forthcoming No Filter European tour, which is set to begin in Germany in September, will not be affected.

Last year, the guitarist quit smoking ahead of the arrival of his twin daughters Gracie Jane and Alice Rose, with wife Sally Humphreys.

He had reportedly been a smoker for 50 years.

Wood has also privately and publicly battled alcoholism and has been sober for several years following stints in rehab

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A spokesperson for Ronnie Wood says the Rolling Stones guitarist has had a lung lesion successfully removed and is expected to make a full recovery.

Wood, who turns 70 next week, said in a statement that he is grateful to doctors who found the lesion in its early stages.

He is not expected to require further treatment and the procedure will not affect the Stones' upcoming tour, which kicks off in Europe in September.

Wood joined the Rolling Stones in 1975.

The "world's greatest rock band" released their first studio album in 11 years, Blue & Lonesome, in November, eight months after their historic free concert in Cuba and the opening of The Rolling Stones: Exhibitionism, a vast interactive multimedia exhibit covering 20,000 square feet of London's high-culture Saatchi Gallery with five decades of Stones history.

I read he has already given up smoking.

So glad he's alright and it's nothing too scary!

Given the opportunity, I would like to point out what a nightmare these first 6 months of 2017 have been, what, with constant bad news, disasters, deaths and near-misses Cheesy According to astrology (and at this point I'm putting my hopes to literally everything) these 6 months have been very similar to the previous hell of 2016 and things should look up from June onwards. Just saying and keeping fingers crossed Grin

I hope it's not worse than they are saying because for someone who was diagnosed with emphysema to continue smoking like he has, it is beyond stupid.

It says Ronnie has been a smoker for 50 years, so if he quit cold turkey now it would probably kill him. I hope he's OK, and gets control of the situation. This forces his hand, now he has to deal with it.

Get well Ronnie, I know a guy who was a good friend of mine, who quit smoking for 12 years, but got lung Cancer & passed away 3 years ago, so even though someone is smoke free for years, one never knows.

My lung cancer horror, by Ronnie Wood: Rolling Stone

prepared 'to say goodbye' to his family after diagnosis
Ronnie Wood said that there was a time when 'everything hung in the balance'
Father-of-six was diagnosed with lung cancer three months ago during medical
Star’s third wife Sally, 31 years his junior, became his rock as he endured tests
But the 'supernova burning away' on his left lung was successfully removed

By Chris Hastings for The Mail on Sunday
PUBLISHED: 02:03, 6 August 2017 | UPDATED: 17:27, 6 August 2017


Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood has revealed how he prepared ‘to say goodbye’ to his young family after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

In an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine today, the 70-year-old tells how the diagnosis, which he has kept secret until now, led to the darkest period of his life.

The star also recalls how he took the agonising decision not to have chemotherapy because he didn’t want to lose his iconic head of hair.

The father-of-six said: ‘I’ve had a fight with a touch of lung cancer. There was a week when everything hung in the balance and it could have been curtains, time to say goodbye.’

Wood – who quit smoking a week before his one-year-old twins Gracie and Alice were born – was diagnosed three months ago during a routine medical with the band’s doctor Richard Dawood. On this occasion, Dawood asked Wood if he could ‘go deeper’ and check the star’s heart, lungs and blood.


‘I said go for it,’ recalled Wood. ‘And then he came back with the news that I had this supernova burning away on my left lung. And to be totally honest, I wasn’t surprised. I knew I hadn’t had a chest X-ray since I went into Cottonwood [a rehab clinic in Tucson, Arizona] in 2002. He asked me what I wanted to do and my answer was simple, “Just get it out of me.” ’

The star’s third wife Sally, who is 31 years his junior, became his rock as he endured a week of tests to see if the condition had spread.

Wood said: ‘If that had happened, it would have been all over for me. So there was this one week when I didn’t know what was happening. Sally was amazing. It’s only since we’ve got through it that she has been able to tell me how it was the worst seven days of her life.’


The guitarist said he was adamant that whatever happened, he wasn’t going to undergo chemotherapy.

He said: ‘I was prepared for bad news but I also had faith it would be OK. Apart from the doctors, we didn’t tell anyone because we didn’t want to put anyone else through the hell we were going through. But I made up my mind that if it had spread, I wasn’t going to go through chemo, I wasn’t going to use that bayonet in my body.’

He added: ‘It’s more I wasn’t going to lose my hair. This hair wasn’t going anywhere. A week later they came back with the news that it hadn’t spread and I said, “Let’s get it out now.” Just before I closed my eyes for the operation, I looked at the doctor and said, “Let battle commence.” ’
Wood has long been one of rock ’n’ roll’s most notorious hell-raisers and for decades enjoyed a long ‘love affair’ with booze and drugs.

The star, who joined The Rolling Stones more than 40 years ago, admits that given everything he has been through he has been ‘bloody lucky’. He said: ‘I had this thought after I gave up smoking, “How can I get through 50 years of chain-smoking, and all the rest of my bad habits, without something going on in there?” ’ He added: ‘Someone up there must like me.’

Here's wishing that Keith would take the hint and give up smoking likewise.
It's a rarity to see pictures of the band at any time in their history without someone smoking a cigarette.
