Ronnie Wood has said The Rolling Stones will keep playing until they die.

The newlywed guitarist told The Telegraph that the legendary band, who completed a string of 50-year anniversary concerts in New Jersey last weekend, plan to rock till they drop.

He said:

I think of Howlin' Wolf plugging in to his kidney machine, however old he was, 80 or something, and still playing. You just rock till you drop.


Ronnie Wood married his theatre producer girlfriend Sally Humphreys at London's Dorchester Hotel on Friday (December 21) in a low-key civil ceremony. The couple have been together for six months and have an age gap of 31 years between them with Wood, 65, older than his wife, who is 34.

The guitarist first married in 1971 to Krissy Findlay before splitting in 1978. The guitarist then remarried in 1985 to Jo Wood from whom he separated in 2008 after an alleged affair with 21-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova. Previously, it was reported that Wood's Rolling Stones bandmate Keith Richards had said he was "sick" of buying the guitarist wedding gifts.

Last week, The Rolling Stones played the final show of their '50 And Counting' run of gigs at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, where they were joined onstage by Lady Gaga for a rendition of 'Gimme Shelter'.
