RONNIE WOOD: A MAJOR RETROSPECTIVE 50 YEARS
Coinciding with the ongoing celebration of The Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary, a new art and memorabilia exhibition focusing on the half-century career of guitarist Ronnie Wood opened Thursday in London.
The exhibit, dubbed Ronnie Wood: A Major Retrospective of 50 Years in Rock 'n' Roll, features new paintings and sketches by the revered rocker, guitars that he has decorated, various handwritten lyrics and set lists from a number of Wood's bands, including The Stones, Faces and The Jeff Beck Group.
The free display is located at the Symbolic London pop-up showroom and is scheduled to run until November 9. Wood himself is scheduled to make a guest appearance at the exhibit on Monday from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. local time.
"My two passions in life are music and art, I can't imagine one without the other," says Wood in a statement. "Through The Stones, The Birds, Faces and Jeff Beck Group, I've been creating art, collecting objects, pictures and memories that together provide an encounter with the people who influence me, the people I love and my own life experiences."
