Ronnie Wood - Ronnie Wood Recalls Being Evicted With Hendrix

Ronnie Wood and Jimi Hendrix were thrown out of the flat they shared because of their dog.

The Rolling Stones rocker shared a flat with the legendary musician and friend Pat Arnold in London's Notting Hill but Pat asked them both to leave when they failed to house train Ronnie's pooch.

Ronnie explained: "I shared a flat with Jimi in Notting Hill Gate for a couple of weeks. He was quite a gentle flatmate. He gave me a dog - a basset hound called Loopy.

"We were living with Pat Arnold, who was the singer in The Ikettes but she threw me and Jimi out because the dog kept s***ting everywhere."

Although they only lived together for a few weeks, 63-year-old Ronnie still remembers the pair's impromptu jamming sessions in the flat and admits he was overawed by his late pal's prowess on guitar.

He recalled: "We did used to sit on the bed and exchange ideas on the guitar. He could flip it over and play equally well left or right-handed. Like Ronnie O'Sullivan with the snooker cue."
