Yesterday, Ronnie’s documentary premiered in London

Apparently, Mick, Keith and Rod Steward also were there. – see the report about the premiere in London on Saturday evening (

Ronnie Wood is a genuine, 24-carat rock star guitarist. He has paid his dues, played hard, lived fast (in every sense) and somehow survived to tell the tale. And tell it he does, in Mike Figgis’ revealing, biographical documentary, which charts Wood’s stellar and storied career. From his childhood and entry into the 1960s music scene, through to his time with the Jeff Beck Group, achieving fame with The Faces alongside bandmate Rod Stewart and finally becoming an indispensable and permanent member of The Rolling Stones, Figgis captures it all. Featuring terrific archive footage, along with candid interviews with a very charismatic Wood and his many legendary friends, this is the perfect rock and roll treat.

Ronnie also posted about his new album with Chuck Berry covers…

He also shows us his latest art, painting ceramics…

The Daily Mail also has some text about Ronnie – this time it’s his comments on his years using freebase…

RIP, Ginger!

Ginger Baker

Sadly, one of Rock’s most talented drummers is dead.

Ginger Baker, *August 19, 1939, former drummer of CREAM and sometimes enfant terrible, died yesterday aged 80 in a hospital in SE England.

Just 2 weeks ago, I saw the documentary “Beware of Mr. Baker” and I can recommend it!

Here is what Mick, Paul and … had to say:

==> Baker dead: Cream drummer dies, aged 80 – Legendary musician has passed away after being critically ill in hospital

==> esquire.comCream Drummer Ginger Baker Has Died at Age 80 -The rebellious rock legend was one of the most influential drummers of all time

Tour 2020 rumors!!

The Rolling Stones - Houston 2019

Some time ago, rumors told that the band could have plans to tour Australia next year.

Now, it’s quite possible that the band could be planning a tour (March/April) in Asia – like Japan (Macao, Singapore, Shanghai), New Zealand, Hawaii and … Australia (Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne) !!

Well, that’s an exciting perspective, to be honest. I’m not at all surprised, that the band plans to keep on touring. All of them spoke positively about still playing live; even Charlie did. And they still have great fun on tour.

See for instance this news-bit from (dated 11/09/2019) – Another music bombshell? Rumour File told the The Rolling Stones are coming to Australia

Or this from (dated 10/04/2019) – TOUR MAIL | The Rolling Stones To Tour Australia In 2020 – March/April

There’s no details yet, of course, and it’s not at all official. But I can easily imagine that this will actually happen!

Yes, folks, The Stones are still rolling and so far gather no moss…
