Read full description of the books Ronnie:Ronnie Wood's autobiography...well, almost auto, with the help of two assistants named as Jack Macdonald and Jeffrey Robinson. 'Ronnie' was published in 2007, so it's final chapter 'Where is this boy now?' requires some update, but then rolling stones gather no moss.
If Woody has dictated most of this memoir to be typed up by ghost writers, well so what? Born into a family of water gypsies in 1947, this autobiog contains a flow of sixty years, with almost fifty years of rock and roll mayhem. From the early 60's Wood has been on the road with The Birds, The Creation, Jeff Beck Group, The Faces and Rolling Stones as well as fronting his own band. The book is littered with tales of rock n roll excess with full supporting roles from a myriad of the 'poptastic', from Bo Diddley to Bigger Bang.
Often introduced at a Stones gig as the 'Rembrandt of Rock', Ronnie is also a talented artist, and examples of that talent are sprinkled liberally throughout this book. Some of the studies of Charlie Watts, Dylan and Muhammed Ali are very good.
Sadly, but by no means surprisingly, the man struggles with alcoholism mixed with a rather large pharmaceutical intake, and the optimistic note that Wood's story ends on in Chapter 34 has taken a detour into rehab and divorce since publication. Ronnie's final word of the final chapter, "I can't say what the future holds for me, but I can tell you, I'm not finished yet." I wouldn't bet against that.
