Rolling Stones gathers some Wood

In 1975, The Rolling Stones gained one of their most iconic members.

 

Ronald David Wood or has he’s better known, Ronnie Wood, joined the band after formerly playing in “The Birds” and “The Faces”.

 

Following Mick Taylor’s departure from the Rolling Stones in December 1974, Wood participated in the band’s March 1975 recording sessions for its forthcoming album Black and Blue.

Although still a member of the Faces, he toured North America with the Rolling Stones in 1975;  The Faces announced its break-up in December of that year, and Wood officially joined the Rolling Stones in Feb 1976.

Ronnie plays the slide guitar as did his predessors Taylor and Brian Jones. He has also co-written some of their hits.

 

We think the Rolling Stones would not be the same without him.
