The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is set to appear in conversation to mark the release of his old diaries, dating back to 1965.
Titled ‘How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary’, the book will be released in May via Genesis Publications. The diary entries were written during Wood’s early years as a member of The Birds. He will appear at London’s Ambassador’s Theatre on April 29 to talk about the book and his life, with the BBC’s Bob Harris. For ticket information, click here.
“I suppose my own private world is in the diary,” Wood has said about the book. “This diary shows what an amazing schedule I had. We’d be travelling the length and breadth of the country every day. With youth on our side, it was a continuing adventure. Our overspilling energy was enough to take care of work every night of the week.”
“It was enough to chase the girls, enough to write songs, enough to rehearse and enough to travel. It was all go, all the time.” ”How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary’ will be limited to 1,965 copies. It follows on from Wood’s autobiography ‘Ronnie’, published in 2007. It will be made available at ronniewoodbook.com
The Rolling Stones will return to playing live with live dates in America set to take place this summer. These will be the band’s first since the death of saxophone player Bobby Keys in 2014. Keys died in December last year, aged 70, following an ongoing battle with cirrhosis of the liver.
