The Endless Note

Ronnie Wood

It has been lying around the house for ages but on the back of my recent posting on Rod Stewart I have finally started to read Ronnie Wood’s autobiography “Ronnie” and what a jolly good read it is.

His early years are covered quickly and you are soon drawn into his world as a guitar slinger, finally breaking through with mod group The Birds,

thereafter going on to learn and play bass with The Jeff Beck Group where he started a long term partnership with Rod Stewart

 which progressed to The Faces and the early Rod Stewart solo albums.

After The Faces collapsed, in part due to Rod Stewart’s chasing the dollar sign with a solo career which provided commercial success if not quality product, he finally ended up as Keith Richard’s guitar weaving aide in The Rolling Stones.

Here is The Birds take on The Who’s “Run Run Run”

Finally here is one of Ronnie’s favourite songs “I’m Walkin'” by Fats Domino famous as being one of, if not the, first songs to be “faded out” on vinyl.
