Ron Wood

Guitarist Ron Wood has been a member of several "classic" British rock outfits, but the one that he's undoubtedly most associated with is the Rolling Stones, with whom he's been a member since 1976. Born on June 1, 1947, in Hillingdon, London, Wood made his first appearances on record during the mid-'60s, first as guitarist for the Birds and then as a member of the oft-overlooked mod outfit the Creation (Wood only appeared on a smattering of singles, collected years later on the compilation Complete Collection, Vol. 1: Making Time). Immediately after his split from the Creation, Wood was invited to play bass in the Jeff Beck Group, a band that also included a then-unknown Rod Stewart on vocals. Despite high hopes for the group (often credited as one of the founders of hard rock/heavy metal), the band only managed to issue a pair of classic recordings, 1968's Truth and 1969's Beck-Ola, before splitting up just prior to an appearance at the legendary Woodstock festival. Wood and Stewart opted to stick together, as they joined the Small Faces the same year (with Wood returning to the six-string).

Releasing one album under the Small Faces' name, 1970's First Step, the group then shortened its name simply to the Faces and soon after became one of rock's most notoriously party-hearty outfits of the era (influencing such future punk outfits as the Sex Pistols and the Replacements, among others). Further albums followed (1971's Long Player and A Nod Is as Good as a Wink...to a Blind Horse, plus 1973's Ooh La La), before the group split up in 1975. Wood also found the time to issue a string of solo releases during the mid-'70s: 1974's I've Got My Own Album to Do, 1975's Now Look, and a collaboration with ex-Faces bandmate Ronnie Lane, 1976's Mahoney's Last Stand, but this era of Wood's career is best remembered for his enlistment into the Rolling Stones.

With the exit of Mick Taylor in 1974, the Stones began auditioning replacement guitarists, but all along, founding Stones guitarist Keith Richards knew that Wood (a longtime friend) was the man for the job. Wood contributed to half of the Stones' 1976 album, Black and Blue, before becoming a full-time member and appearing on 1977's Love You Live and 1978's Some Girls. Although the Stones didn't issue any albums during 1979, the year was a busy one for Wood, as he issued his fourth solo release, Gimme Some Neck, and toured alongside Richards in a one-off side band, the New Barbarians. Wood and the Stones conquered the charts once more in the early '80s, with such hits as 1980's Emotional Rescue and 1981's Tattoo You, but tensions between Richards and Mick Jagger caused the group to not tour the U.S. between 1982-1988, while only managing to issue a pair of spotty studio albums (1983's Undercover and 1986's Dirty Work).

During this time, Wood issued such further solo albums as 1981's 1234 and 1988's Live at the Ritz (the latter a collaboration with Bo Diddley), and became an avid painter. Jagger and Richards eventually buried the hatchet by the late '80s, and the Stones sporadically issued new studio albums and toured from 1989 onward (1989's Steel Wheels, 1994's Voodoo Lounge, 1997's Bridges to Babylon, etc.). Wood has continued to issue solo recordings throughout the '90s and beyond (1992's Slide on This, 1994's Slide on Live: Plugged in and Standing, plus a pair in 2002, Not for Beginners and Live & Eclectic). Additionally, Wood has guested on countless recordings by other artists over the years, including albums by the Band, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Donovan, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, and his old pal Rod Stewart, with whom he taped a popular edition of MTV's Unplugged in 1993, resulting in the hit album Unplugged...and Seated. Wood's seventh solo album, I Feel Like Playing, appeared in 2010 from Eagle Records and featured guest spots from Slash, Flea, Billy Gibbons, Bobby Womack, Jim Keltner, and ex-Faces bandmate Ian McLagan, among others. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

guitar playing m@#$%^ F%^&*(
the faces were the best of all the brit bands !!!!!!!!!
Got Wood(y)?
where is slide on this???
How about on the next Stones album; Ronnie and Keith sing a duet or two? How sweet would that be? On second thought; how about they put out an album without Mick? Kind of in the style of Ronnie Lane - acoustic/fol k / b l u e s . You Got the Silver type stuff. That would be so great.
absolutely LOVE ronnie's solo output, and amazed that the guitarist for the most famous group in the world can stay so under the radar with some of the best music of the 70s & 80s. first had 'got my own album to do' on 8-track tape, and bought 'now look' on vinyl from a grocery cut-out bin for $2.99 in '79 when i was 16!!
"Breathe On Me" . . . Jesus - what a great song.
I always said ronnie was the smartest man in Rock and Roll and Mick Taylor was the dumbest. Mick had the greatest day job in the world. Ronnie seems to do what Keith and Mick tell him and then he is free to do his solo stuff on the side.
Gimme Some Neck is as good as anything the Stones put out in the late 70's and beyond. Wish Keith and Mick would let him sing a tune once in awhile.
Rod Stewart always sucked. Worst thing that ever happened to R. Wood. I can't even listen to all the great Faces music because I hate Rod Stewart's voice so much. If you have not watched the DVD of the 1st Barbarians Live from Kilburn show; you need to watch it. M. Taylor Stones (Sway, Can You Hear Me Knocking, all of Exile, etc.) is some of the best stuff ever, however I prefer just dirty, basic hard blues (Little T & A, I Can Feel the Fire, Before They Make Me Run)
Hey Robert - yep agree. Mick Taylor was actually the perfect compliment to Keith Richards musically. Check out Sticky Fingers and Exile for further proof. I was referring more to personalitie s . Keith Richards and Ron Wood are basically the same guy.

Sorry 'OneAdam12', I have to disagree. Wood and Richards are too much alike. The result is pretty diluted. Mick Taylor was a much better fit with Richards. They played off each other's differences and created some great music. Wood should have stayed with Rod Stewart (look what happened to Rod after they split....ouc h ) . Still, Ron Wood is awesome. His contribution s say quite a bit!

Most often, the "Genius ones", the really genius ones, stand in the back, delivering magic.....th e i r silhouette is rarely focused on...
Trashy - sloppy - drunken - can't understand a single word he sings; in other words PERFECT! Has there ever been a better pairing of guitarists/p e r s o n a l i t i e s than Ron Wood and Keith Richards? (Maybe Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane?!)
The three perfect distorted guitar tones, Derek and the dominoes-Lay l a , The stones-Exile on mainstreet, and anything Ronnie wood has recorded. No matter what guitar he's playing, he can always get that cool sound.

They left out Slide on This !Great Album 1997 or so.
Gimme Some Neck one of Ron's most treasured efforts.
