Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood and his ex-wife Jo witnessed a UFO when they were in Brazil.
Ronnie Wood and his ex-wife Jo Wood spotted a UFO while they were on holiday in Brazil.
The 62-year-old former model has claimed the couple have seen evidence of aliens, recalling the time when she was looking after their three kids - Jamie, 42, Leah, 39, and Tyrone, 33 - and the Rolling Stones rocker started screaming for her to look at ''something weird'' on the horizon.
She said: ''I was in Recife in Brazil with Ronnie and our kids.

The 69-year-old musician believes nothing ''tops'' cosying up with his wife Sally Humphreys and their nine-month-old twin daughters Gracie and Alice because his tiny tots are ''so cuddly and gorgeous''.
Speaking about his favourite family moment, The Rolling Stones band member - who also has children Jamie, 42, Jesse, 40, Leah, 38, and Tyrone, 33, - told Hello! magazine: ''Any time I'm with her and the girls, that's the best for me, nothing tops it.

The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood - The Rolling Stones attend a photocall at the Adelaide Oval in Australia - Adelaide, Australia - Thursday 23rd October 2014
The Rolling Stones' frontman Mick Jagger has finally hit 70 but there's plenty of life in the old stone yet.
Friday 26th July 2013: 70 years of planetary life for the illustrious Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger as he celebrates becoming a septuagenarian. After an energetic Glastonbury performance back in June and a whole host of rock 'n' roll activities - not least dinner with Nick Clegg - hitting the headlines, The Stones have shown that they can still capture the interest of the media and convert a tonne more young fans for themselves despite having formed 51 years ago in 1962.
Jagger: Why Give Up When You Can Look Good Doing This?
After Glastonbury there was no time to sit down, hang up the bandanas and nestle into a future filled with colostomy bags and porcelain dentures. Instead, the band looked forward to two more mega headline sets in London's Hyde Park on 6th and 13th July to mark the close of their 50th anniversary tour and record some live tracks.

The dinner attracted celebrities from across the UK and around the world.
Kate Hudson and mum Goldie Hawn apparently had a ball at last night’s charity dinner, hosted by the Novak Djokovic foundation. The event, held at London’s Roundhouse theatre attracted a number of A-listers, from Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood and Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, to actors like Gerard Butler and Jeremy Piven. Even Naomi Campbell and tennis star Boris Becker were in attendance.
Goldie Hawn appeared in an elegant cream and gold gown - not the best for tennis, though.
The most active participants by far, were Hawn and Hudson, however, as sometime throughout the night, the daring actresses decided to hitch up their dresses and head over to the venue’s makeshift tennis court for a quick set, The Sun reports. While Hawn opted to merely hitch up the train of her stunning cream-and-gold dress, Hudson was a bit bolder, not only lifting up the skirts of her Ellie Saab gown, but also ditching the heels for added comfort.
The Rolling Stones returned to the spot of perhaps their most historic gig on Saturday; Hyde Park.
It sounds frankly ridiculous to suggest the Rolling Stones should be taken seriously, though thanks to the ageism levelled at the band in recent months you would have been forgiven for assuming Mick Jagger was going to be wheeled on-stage at Glastonbury burning £20 notes and playing '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' over, and over, and over, and over.
Of course, Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts made a mockery of the sceptics and delivered one of the most explosive and entertaining Glastonbury sets in years. The Sunday papers were awash with five-star reviews, greatest hits albums flew off the shelves, everyone LOVED the Stones again - but Hyde Park was still to come.
Delighting 65,000 fans in London on Saturday (July 6), The Stones just about managed to clutch onto their tag as the world's greatest rock n' roll band with an unstoppable setlist that included 'Paint It Black,' 'Gimmie Shelter,' 'Sympathy for the Devil,' 'Midnight Rambler' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want.'

The weather forecast for the Glastonbury Festival does not look overly promising: cloudy with occasional showers. Good news though: the sun will make an appearance, if only for short intervals.
The weather forecast for the Glastonbury Festival this weekend does not look brilliant: expect a lot of cloud. However, those visiting the Glastonbury Festival this year may be pleased (or rather not depending on your predisposition) to hear the traditional mud is likely to be back. Around 135,000 people attend the festival annually and this year is no exception. The festival site, located near the Somerset village of Pilton, opened its gates for early goers. Most slept in their cars overnight lying in wait to get a decent (probably on higher ground) site to set up camp.

The Rolling Stones Glastonbury 2013? The dream's not dead yet, says Ronnie Wood
Ronnie Wood picked up two prizes at the NME Music Awards in London, on behalf of his group The Rolling Stones. The Stones returned to the stage in 2012 to celebrate 50 years in business and many assumed them a shoo-in to play the Glastonbury Festival.
The group are not thought to be in discussions to play the legendary musical gathering, though Wood says it's not too late. "Keep your eye out because you know I want to do some more (live shows) and I know that the boys do too," he told Reuters at the awards' ceremony. "I want to do it badly [Glastonbury], but I've no idea yet ... but I am just looking forward to ... I know we're the best live, so I just hope we get it," he said. The line-up for the festival - held between June 26-30 - is yet to be announced, though the Stones remain a strong rumour for the Saturday evening. The returning Arctic Monkeys are likely to be confirmed as the headliner on the Friday evening, with Dizzie Rascal and Mumford & Sons others assumed to be performing.
The Rolling Stones Could Still Play Glastonbury 2013
Well there was no denying who the biggest name at the Elle Style Awards was last night, as Oscar-nominee and Silver Linings Playbook actor Bradley Cooper turned up to the UK capital of London last night dressed in a suave looking blue suit with checked tie ensemble (February 11, 2013). However he was far from the only one to turn the heads of the paparazzi as many of the great and good turned out for the annual bash which, far from what it's name would suggest, also awards leading performances in film and television.

Err...what happened to Daisy Lowe at the Tommy Hilfiger and Esquire after-party held at The Zetter Townhouse in London on Monday (January 7, 2013)? Wearing a classic leather jacket, floral print top and biker boots, the model looked a little confused and appeared to be acting strangely. Perhaps she was just a little excited (or nervous) to run into her ex-boyfriend Matt Smith, who was also in attendance. Nevertheless, Daisy, 23, tried out her skills at entertaining the star-studded crowd on the decks before carrying on partying with her fellow celebrities.
The Doctor himself was looking pretty dapper in a long winter coat, paisley scarf, black trousers and heavy boots. His close friend Benedict Cumberbatch also attended the bash, as did Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood and his new wife Sally Humphreys. The couple tied the knot two-weeks ago in a ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel. Sally, 34, beamed with delight as she arrived on the arm of her 65-year-old husband wearing a cream dress and glittery heels. Elsewhere, the omnipresent Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw decided on a night on the tiles despite his early morning wake-up call, and was pictured with Kate Moss' rocker husband Jamie Hince. Grimshaw opted for a well-tailored suit, though looked in need of a serious haircut.
The Rolling Stones have been in the news a whole lot more than we’re used to recently around their 50th anniversary tour.
But, if you were afraid that this was only a temporary blip before another long hiatus, don’t fret. Apparently, The Stones will keep performing for a long time to come, at least if Ronnie Wood is to be believed.
It may be his recent marriage to 34-year-old Sally Humphreys that’s given him this newfound lust for life, but Wood sounds more determined than ever to rock out for as long as he possibly can. “I think of Howlin’ Wolf plugging in to his kidney machine, however old he was, 80 or something, and still playing,” says Wood for The Telegraph, “You just rock till you drop.” Well, that didn’t exactly rhyme, but it is an admirable sentiment none the less.

Ah, it's that time of year again, when the London's fashion glitterati descend on The Savoy Hotel to try outdo each other with their designer dresses, towering heels and flashy bags. Actually, it was a little more elegant than that this year, with some of the leading names in British fashion turning out for annual event. Sure, that Nick Grimshaw guy was there, but he kind of had to be given that he was hosting.
The evening saw 14 awards presented to leading figures in fashion, with Stella Mccartney scooping the top accolade of Designer of the Year. Outstanding Achievement went to Manolo Blahnik for his contribution to fashion, while Jonathan Saunders won the Emerging Talent (Menswear) Award (presented by Ronnie Wood). So that's the boring ones out of the way: who won the exciting stuff? Model of the Year went to the new darling of British fashion Cara Delevingne, who pretty much dominated the fashion stakes on the evening too. The 20-year-old wore a metallic green shift dress by Burberry with silver peep-toe heels. It was big night for the Burberry star, who graced the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November. She was joined by her close pal Rita Ora, who opted for an aqua gown by Vivienne Westwood before later dressing down with cream trousers and knitted top. Delevingne became the face of the fashion house in 2010 though has also appeared in high profile campaigns for H&M, Zara and Chanel. She appeared in a huge 31 shows at London Fashion Week in September, modelling for the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi and Stella McCartney.
Last night at London’s O2 Arena (November 25, 2012), The Rolling Stones were joined onstage by old friends and newer ones, as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. The current mainstays of the band, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts welcomed the band’s original bass player, Bill Wyman to play ‘It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It)’ and ‘Honky Tonk Women.’ Mick Taylor, who was a member of the band between 1969 ad 1974 also had his moment in the limelight once more, when he joined them for a version of ‘Midnight Rambler.’
Mary J Blige also performed with the band, helping them out with ‘Gimme Shelter’ and later tweeted “So much fun performing in London w/ the @RollingStones! Congrats on your 50th anniversary!! The response to the show, from those that were there, has been overwhelmingly positive. The Mighty Boosh comedian Noel Fielding told the BBC “I think Keith played incredibly. Sympathy For The Devil...his lead on that was absolutely amazing” and – always one to admire an elaborate costume - added “Mick came out in a cape which - as always - has got to be a bonus.”
In the lead up to the opening night of these 50th anniversary dates, much of the discussion surrounding The Stones’ concerts has been centered on the extortionate ticket prices. Jagger didn’t ignore it, joking to those at the back “How are you doing up in the cheap seats? Except they're not cheap seats, that's the problem.” Hopefully, everyone was having such a wonderful time that they were able to see the funny side.

The Rolling Stones are set to perform a string of shows at London's O2 Arena next week, and have announced that as a special treat there will be two special guests appearing on stage with them in the shape of former Stones members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.
Former Stones bassist Wyman and guitarist Taylor will appear on stage with the dinosaur rockers during their shows on Sunday 25th and Thursday 29th November. This will be the first time since 1974 since the two have shared the stage with the rest of the band, but hopefully Ronnie Wood wont feel too left out during the reunion.
The remaining members - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Wood – have been inviting the two former members back to work together again over recent years, however the shows at the O2 will mark the first time in more than three decades since they have performed live together. Both Wyman and Taylor were interviewed in the recent official 50th anniversary documentary Crossfire Hurricane, in which both former members talked intimately about their time with the band and their reasons for leaving it all behind. Wyman called it quits in December 1992 to concentrate on his own work and personal life, whilst Taylor left the band in 1974. In Crosstown Hurricane Taylor admitted that his heroin addiction was at the root of his leaving of the band.
Ronnie Wood's dating history is somewhat dubious. Having left his wife of over 20 years for a not-quite-twenty Russian called Ekaterina Ivanova in 2008, the news was met with outrage from friends, family and fans alike. However, in a turnaround of character, Wood is now engaged to Sally Humphreys, who is the opposite of Ivanova in almost every way.
Ivanova was around 40 years his junior, so his latest fiancée, Sally Humphreys, who is only 31 years younger than him, aged 34 while Wood is 65, comes as a pleasant surprise. Reported in the Sun, Wood's stepson Jamie said: "Sally's not one of the bimbos he usually goes for. She's exactly what he needs. I don't think he can keep up with bimbos any more." He added "She's a lovely girl and she's no groupie - I can assure you of that." Humphreys is a theatre producer who went to a grammar school- a point which seems to have impressed the Daily Mail which referred to as a 'classy girl!' in reference to this part of her academic background. Despite the Mail's almost patronising reference to her grammar school background, Humphreys really does seem a cut above the rest of the drivel he'd dated before. Apparently, her hobbies include running marathons, baking cakes and knitting.
A source close to Wood said "Ronnie and Sally have been friends a long time. He always had an eye for her but she was in a relationship. They've been inseparable for months and he decided to tie the knot again. Keith Richards has been laughing about it. He's sick of buying him wedding presents."
The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood will soon marry for the third time, according to Sky News. Ronnie, 65 has been dating Sally Humphreys, 34 for around six months and has decided that she’s the one! No, really…
Ronnie has already been married twice before. First, he married Krissy Findlay in 1971. They were married for seven years and had a son together, named Jesse. In 1985, he married Jo Wood, to whom he was married for over 20 years. He had another two children (Leah and Tyrone) with Jo. However, he left Jo in 2008, for a 21 year-old former cocktail waitress, Ekaterina Ivanova, after meeting her in a club. Jo filed for divorce from Ronnie the following year and that process was finalised in 2011. Throughout this time, Wood was known to have been suffering from substance abuse issues and had checked into rehab several times.
A spokesman for Ronnie confirmed that he and Sally are indeed engaged to be married, though there’s no news on when he might be walking his young fiancee up the aisle, just yet. Presumably, though, it will have to wait until after the band have finished their 50th anniversary concerts. On that note, we’ve just had a thought. If one of the band members has a lavish wedding and honeymoon to shell out for, that could go some way towards explaining the price of those tickets, now, couldn’t it?
Watching the Rolling Stones' home movies while they reminisce on the soundtrack is thoroughly entertaining, although this documentary is such an inside job that it doesn't really tell us anything we don't already know. Indeed, the Rolling Stones commissioned this film for their 50th anniversary, and while it doesn't shy away from showing their heyday of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll, it never gets into their personal lives at all. And it only covers the first half of their half-century.
As well-educated blues musicians on the London club scene, the Stones enjoyed reasonable success, but it wasn't until they were dubbed the "anti-Beatles" and set about to play on their anarchic images that they rocketed to global stardom, setting teen girls' hearts (and bladders) aflutter across Britain and America. But their bad-boy behaviour also got them into a lot of trouble. Guitarist Brian Jones dropped out of the band in 1969 (and drowned less than a month later), while his replacement Mick Taylor quit in 1974 due to drugs, replaced by Ronnie Wood. But the partying hit a low point with Keith Richards' arrest for heroin in 1977, after which they cleaned up their act. And their early 1980s tour was their biggest ever.
Oddly, the documentary suddenly ends here, making us wonder if this is just part 1. Although their successes since then have been a bit more sporadic, they would certainly provide some telling backstage moments. By contrast, much of the footage here (mainly in grainy black and white shot on Mick Jagger's own home movie camera) centres on the band goofing around in their down moments. It's edited in with lots of concert footage, so the soundtrack is like an early greatest hits collection. And there are also lively TV interviews done through the years. For narration, the filmmakers use audio recordings done specifically for this movie, with telling memories and witty commentary.

When the Stones take the stage at New York City's Beacon Theater, it's frightening -- their age truly shows on film. As giants on the silver screen, we have a front row seat for an exhibition of frail bodies moving in ways that only young men should move. As Mick Jagger belts out songs of youthful rebellion and sexual frustration, he still does the same androgynous dances of yesteryear. Yet, this off-putting display of aged youth is clearly a place of sentiment for Scorsese, whose camera lingers with love.

Unfortunately, the Band's music didn't have much influence on the way future music would develop. But The Last Waltz, a concert film of the Band's 1976 farewell performance, remains an essential artwork. The film is a reminder that while they lasted, the Band (guitarist Robbie Robertson, drummer Levon Helm, keyboardists Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel, and bassist Rick Danko) was as good as any group in rock history.
