Interview with Ronnie Wood – Faces, Rolling Stones Guitarist

A guy I know writes for a music magazine called Clash, and he recently directed me to this Q&A with accompanying video with Ronnie Wood. A little while ago, I wrote an article about the Faces which featured Wood as guitarist and writing partner to Rod Stewart, before Wood joined the Stones in 1975.

But Wood also served time in bands before then in the 1960s – the Birds, the Creation (one of the first bands to use a violin bow on a guitar – cue Mr. Page in the next deacde), and (serving as bassist) the Jeff Beck Group. One of the questions covered in the video portion of the Q&A is whether or not the Faces will reform, which is something that has been hinted at for a while but hasn’t come to fruition.

He’s recently put out his autobiography, Ronnie, which includes some of his adventures as a journeyman guitar slinger.
