Leah Wood: I'll Make It On My Own

LEAH WOOD has taken advice from her ROLLING STONES star dad RONNIE as she embarks on a new musical career - but has vowed to remain her own woman.

The 25-year-old fronts unsigned band the LEAH WOOD GROUP, and has appreciated having a dad who can offer her specialist advice on the industry - but is adamant she will prove herself independently.

She says, "He's listened to a few of my tracks and takes notes.

"Obviously I respect my dad's thoughts because he's a great musician and I'd be dumb not to. But other than that, I get on with it the way I feel it should be done.

"This is something I want to do for myself. I did have my doubts - are people just going to say, 'She got into it because of her dad?'"
