A superb limited edition book covering the Rolling Stones' guitarist Woody's prolific painting, from his early art-school beginnings to the present day. The collection includes portraits of The Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Muddy Waters, Ray Charles, The Sex Pistols, Rod Stewart and Keith Moon; many of them previously unseen, including several sketches Ronnie recently managed to draw in between shows on the Bridges to Babylon tour. Every piece of artwork has been hand-picked from his vast archive of sketch books and files. In a text of over 8,000 words, Ronnie talks candidly about himself, his tremendous musical career spanning more than thirty years as one of the world's great guitarists and his second passion and talent in life, painting. He recalls the early days with his first band The Birds, followed by his apprenticeship on bass with The Jeff Beck Group, fun and games with The Faces and ultimately twenty-two years with the most popular and successful rock'n'roll band in the world - The Rolling Stones. Ronnie reveals to us his thoughts and feelings about being a Stone and his relationships with the other members of the band. A superb production, containing an exclusive CD recording featuring Wood, Bob Dylan, Ian McLagan, Bobby Womack and The Edge. Item #54125
