Ronnie Wood legendary member of the Rolling Stones is about to launch his first solo album in nearly ten years.
The release date for the album which will coincide with a documentary about his life is set for October.
According to UCR via The Sun both projects started about four years ago.During that time Woods kept it all on the burner as he juggled a multitude over the last few years.
Another quote from the newspaper tells us that: “This album and the TV show is a big deal for Ronnie,” they later added that “He hasn’t done any solo recordings since I Feel Like Playing and Live in London in 2010.
He felt it was time to tell his story with a programme he fully cooperated with. It’s likely to be with the BBC or Netflix and offers a very candid look back on his life.”
The report went on to say that in spite of Woods huge work/life commitments, he still managed to get into the recording studio and put the finishing touches to his new solo album.
It is not an understatement to say that Ron’s schedule in the past few years was mammoth, it includes performing on the Stones’ No Filter tour, enduring a cancer battle, celebrating the birth of twins and releasing some of his artwork.
Woods told the public “There was a week when everything hung in the balance and it could have been curtains – time to say goodbye,” fortunately the surgery he received for the cancer was successful but he was prepared if the news had been bad.
Although Woods felt confident that everything would be OK his diagnosis was not shared with anyone except the medical team. “We didn’t tell anyone because we didn’t want to put anyone else though the hell we were going through.
But I made up my mind that if it had spread I wasn’t going to go through chemo, I wasn’t going to use that bayonet in my body.” Asked why he explained: “I wasn’t going to lose my hair. This hair was going anywhere”.
