Ronnie Wood Becomes A Father To 'Perfect' Twin Girls At 68


Ronnie Wood

Veteran rockstar Ronnie Wood has once again proved that you're never too old for anything as he becomes a father at 68-years-old to 'perfect' twin girls with his wife of four years Sally Humphreys. And gosh, they couldn't have picked cuter baby names than these!

Ronnie Wood has become a father again after Sally Humphreys gave birth to twins on Monday night (May 30th 2016). Wood already has four other children - Jesse, 39, with first wife Krissy Findlay; and Leah, 37, and Tyrone, 32, with Jo Wood as well as their adopted son Jamie, 41 - but these two girls are his first with Humphreys.

The Rolling Stones headlined at Glastonbury on Saturday (29th June) but the viewing public were more interested in watching Bruce Willis' 1988 classic action film, Die Hard, according to The Daily Mail. 2.54 million tuned into the BBC to watch The Rolling Stones' performance whilst 2.78 million watched Bruce Willis punch, kick and shoot in Die Hard

The Rolling Stones, Public Enemy And Elvis Costello Bring Worthy Farm To It's Knees: Glastonbury Day Two Round-Up


Glastonbury Festival Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Public Enemy Ronnie Wood Charlie Watts Elvis Costello Michael Eavis

After decades of failed attempts, Glastonbury Festival organiser Michael Eavis finally managed to book the biggest rock group of all time for the world-renowned UK festival, and with an absolutely riotous set that had the huge crowd off their feet for the full 2+ hours set, The Rolling Stones managed to show just why they are still the biggest band on the planet.

The dinosaurs rockers proved their worth on the Pyramid Stage

Their headlining slot on Saturday (June 29) night proved to be the icing on the cake to what had already been an absolutely triumphant day two at the Somerset festival and after a hit-filled set from the Arctic Monkeys during the Friday headlining show on the Pyramid Stage, followed by the huge set from the Stones last night, the pressure really is on for Mumford and Sons to deliver when they take to the stage on Sunday (June 30) night to close the festival. Good news for people at home (in the UK) too, because the group did show some of their performance on the BBC afterall (an hour of it at least), despite saying otherwise prior to the set. Checking off such classics as '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction,' 'Gimme Shelter' and 'Paint It Black' during their set, they may have been together for half a century, but Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood managed to grab hold of the audience like few other bands on the bill would be able to.

Rolling Stones Unite With Carrie Underwood To Rock Toronto


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Charlie Watts Carrie Underwood

The Rolling Stones might have a few years on youngsters in the business these days, but they have no qualms about collaborating with new talent, as their recent performance, featuring Carrie Underwood, clearly shows. The Stones stopped by Toronto's Air Canada Centre last weekend and performed a gig off their 50th anniversary tour.

One of the biggest surprises of the night came as the band launched into an amped up rendition of “It’s Only Rock’n’Roll (But I Like It)” Just as Jagger was ripping through the second verse, Underwood, typically a country songstress, strutted up on stage and joined in, launching into a sing-off that must have been worth hearing live. Underwood even got her own moment to shine, with a brief solo right before Jagger joined back in. Then the audience even got treated to a bit of a visual show, when, during the lively instrumental provided by Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, the two singers bust a move together. You’d think the younger Underwood would have the upper hand in that, but Mick definitely wasn’t letting up.

Rolling Stones Cutting Ticket Prices In Order To Sell? Promoter Says ‘No Way!’


Rolling Stones Ronnie Wood

The Rolling Stones’ comeback has been marred by the high ticket prices they demand. The controversy continues as the legendary rockers allegedly failed to sell tickets for their U.S tour, and dropped prices as a result Something their promoter vehemently denies.

"It's unfortunate in our business that everybody wants to be cynics," John Meglen, co-president of AEG Live subsidiary Concerts West tells Billboard. "The fact is, the tour is doing great and we have no problems whatsoever." Meglen added that any price cuts were part of AEG's "flex price" strategy to keep tickets out away from touts and secondary ticketing agencies. "There are no $600 tickets turning into $85 tickets, I can assure you of that," he said, adding that the band did sell over 20,000 of the $600 tickets across four gigs in LA. "Did we hit a point where we ran out of people that would buy at $600? Yeah," he said. "But why can't we do the 'market value’ thing? Why do we have to let the market value proposition live with the scalpers? Why should, in my estimation, $3 million go to the brokers, instead of the artists, in every one of these markets?"

Back when the Stones were selling out U.K venues, Ronnie Wood defended the high prices for the tickets in The Telegraph, saying: "We've already spent a million on rehearsing in Paris and the stage is going to be another few million. And the lights. We feel no bad thing about ticket prices. We've got to make something."

Ronnie Wood Wants The Rolling Stones To Hit Up Glastonbury For Post Anniversary Show


Ronnie Wood Rolling Stones Mick Jagger

Ronnie Wood has said that he would love to perform at Glastonbury for the first time to mark The Rolling Stones 50th anniversary.

The rockers have celebrated their semicentennial as a band with a string of shows last year in London, Brooklyn and New Jersey but guitarist Ronnie Wood seems keen to get back on to the stage again. 'Wouldn't it be nice', he told The Independent. 'We've got a meeting next month and that's going to be my first question to them. It's something I've always been interested in. I'm going to twist their arms.' He went on to say that he has 'high hopes' for the summer of 2013, though a source close to Rolling Stone magazine recently denied that they would be involved in this year's Coachella festival. However, that doesn't mean they're short of offers according to singer Mick Jagger. 'I'm going to see what's on the table and discuss it with everyone. We'll announce it when we've figured it out', he said.

Glastonbury would be a pretty huge bet for the band - it is, after all, arguably the most prestigious music festival in the UK and this year's tickets have already sold out despite the line-up not yet being announced.

Ronnie Wood Is 'Very Blessed' With New Wife Sally Humphreys


Ronnie Wood Sir Paul McCartney Rod Stewart

Ronnie Wood went a little bit ga-ga after the breakdown of his 17 year marriage to Jo Wood, after he left her for the very young Ekaterina Ivanova. He'd already had a very difficult five years with the death of his two brothers, so a late mid-life crisis wasn't all that surprising. However, his life and his sanity now seem back on track having got married for the third time, to Sally Humphreys. 

Sally must be pretty good because Wood's sons approve of her. Despite her being over 30 years his junior (he's 65, she's 34), Wood told Hello Magazine, "I wish I'd met Sal earlier. I can't think of another girl more suited to me." The marriage creates an entirely new family for the old rocker, which he's more than pleased about, "'It was a wonderful day. She looked beautiful walking through that doorway. I feel very blessed to have a new family. My dad and brothers are no longer with us so it's really nice to be welcomed by a new gang. Her relatives are lovely." 

The couple have known each other for years, but it took a while for them to finally get together, as Humphreys explains: "'Ronnie was married and then Ronnie wasn't married. I have had boyfriends, then I didn't have a boyfriend. It had to wait until everyone was clear. But I definitely feel like I have ended up in the right place."

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Baby In A Baby Carriage! Ronnie Wood And Sally Humphreys To Start A Family!


Ronnie Wood

65-year-old rocker, Ronnie Wood, tied the knot with his theatre producer partner, Sally, on Friday in a penthouse suite at London's Dorchester hotel, and now the pair are intent on starting a family of their own. 

"Sally has always wanted to have children and thinks Ronnie will be a great dad to them now he's settled down," the insider told the Sunday People. "They have enjoyed being by themselves and have a real laugh but a baby is something they both really want in the near future." Sally has confirmed that she would like to have children with The Rolling Stones legend, but wants to wait a while before they take the plunge into parenthood (in this marriage, anyway). "I would like children but not yet. Ronnie is relaxed about it but I just want to have some time just as ourselves," Sally said last month according to the Daily Mail. Ronnie - who is already father to four children from previous relationships - had been in a relationship with Humphreys for six months before tying the knot last week.

The pair have been friends for years, but it took a while for things to fall into place. "Ronnie was married and then Ronnie wasn't married. I have had boyfriends, then I didn't have a boyfriend. It had to wait until everyone was clear. But I definitely feel like I have ended up in the right place."

Ronnie Wood Says He Wants Kids Already


Ronnie Wood Rod Stewart Sir Paul McCartney

Ronnie Wood, who wedded his girlfriend of six months Sally Humphries earlier this week, has announced what he plans to happen next in his still young relationship - he wants children.

The Rolling Stones guitarist wed for the third time to Humphries on Friday (21 Dec). At 34, his new wife is 31 years his junior, and already Ronnie wants someone even younger in his life. Luckily for Sally though, the legendary ladies' man doesn't want a younger beau, but instead a brood of children. Speaking to the Sunday People, a close friend of the newlyweds said, "Sally has always wanted to have children and thinks Ronnie will be a great dad to them now he's settled down. They have enjoyed being by ­themselves and have a real laugh but a baby is something they both really want in the near future."

Ronnie apparently took inspiration from his close friends and groomsmen at the wedding, Rod Stewart and Sir Paul McCartney, to set up a family with his young wife, much in the same way as they have done (particularly Rod). The source added: "Ronnie thinks the world of Rod and they spend a lot of time together. There isn't really any pressure to have kids, but it seems like the natural thing to do. The feeling is that if Rod can do it, so can Ronnie."

Ronnie Wood Marries For The Third Time


Ronnie Wood Sir Paul McCartney Rod Stewart

Ronnie Wood found the perfect way to round of one heck of a year: by marrying his girlfriend of six-months, Sally Humphreys.

The Rolling Stones guitarist wed Humphreys yesterday (21 December 2012) at an intimate civil ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel. The wedding was attended by a few close friends and family, with Beatles (and now Nirvana) legend Paul McCartney and Rod Stewart turning up with their respective partners. Rod, who is Ronnie's former Faces bandmate, served as the best man for the occasion.

The couple went against more than one tradition during the nuptials, beginning when the newlyweds arrived at the Dorchester together in a black Mercedes, and continuing with Ronnie's choice of suit: a blue one. Also, hotels don't usually act as the most traditional of settings for a wedding either. However some traditions were met, particularly with Humphreys' white dress, which she had previously said belonged to her mother. "For anyone interested, I’m wearing my mum’s wedding dress," she said.

Of all the films being released close to Christmas time, perhaps only Django Unchained can rival Les Miserables for the sheer star power assembled amongst the cast. Both high budget films had their American premiere this week, and though Les Mis could boast a mighty triumvirate of Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, they were surely eclipsed by the embarrassment of riches that showed up last night in New York for Quentin Tarantino's new warped Western flick.

Rolling Stones Will Be Joined By Mick Taylor And Bill Wyman In London


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Bill Wyman Mick Taylor Charlie Watts

In an explosive 50th anniversary year for the Rolling Stones, having released a new album, a documentary about the band, and revealing a set of live shows in London and New York, the Stones have now revealed that two old band mates will be joining them at their gigs in London next week, reports the Guardian.

Former bassist Bill Wyman, and guitartist Mick Taylor will appear as special guests at their sell out show at London's O2 arena. It was in the Crossfire Hurrican anniversary documentary that Taylor chose to reveal the primary reason for leaving the band back in 1974 was due to his heroin addiction at the time. Both musicians have hooked up with other members Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Mick Jagger, over the years for some charity gigs and reunion shows. This will be the first time, however, that the entire 6 members of the legendary band will be appearing together for a long time.

The band have recently revealed a new video for their single 'Doom and Gloom' from their new album 'GRRR!' as well as plans for an iPhone app that will allow users to see interviews and special features surrounding the band. Despite already having a career spanning 50 years, they've taken the future in their stride and truly embracing their longevity.

Ronnie Wood Auctions Off Rolling Stones Memorabilia Following Divorce


Ronnie Wood Eric Clapton Keith Richards Jo Wood

Divorces can be a hard time, especially if you're Ronnie Wood and you have to sell off a boatload of your stuff to pay for it, as was the case yesterday when the veteran rocker took to Julien's Auctions in New York to sell on some of his most valuable possessions.

The masses of memorabilia on auction spanned four decades of the famed guitarist's work with The Rolling Stones, with the two-day auction selling on all manner of things, including several worn leather and velvet jackets, some real and some cardboard guitars, an assortment of tour ephemera and a signed lithograph of Eric Clapton. Two of the highest fetching items that Wood sold included a white leather coat for $8,960, and a lithograph of Eric Clapton drawn by Wood that includes both the guitarists' signatures fetching $5,120.

However, neither of these came close to matching the sums his guitars amassed, with a 1955 Fender Stratocaster guitar often used on stage by Wood fetching a whopping $60,800. Even one of the cardboard guitars fetched a pretty penny, with a guitar cut-out given to Wood by fellow Stones guitarist Keith Richards selling for $6,875.

Rolling Stones Play Paris Warm Up Gig For $19.50


Rolling Stones Ronnie Wood Mick Jagger

The upcoming Rolling Stones tour is being preceded by a string of intimate warm up gigs, with the first occurring in Paris tonight, October 25th 2012. 

The Huffington Post reports that fans crowded the Champs Elysees with a view to grabbing one of the 350 tickets that were previously announced on the band’s Twitter account. Conditions for the tickets included: no more than two per person, names printed on them and IDs required at the door, but that didn’t put anyone off trying to seeing them before they undertake their much coveted London and New York tour. Speaking to The NME about the aging rocker’s routine, Ronnie Wood said: “We’re all making a concentrated effort of being there on time every day, we start at three o’clock in the afternoon, we go through to dinner time, we have one break and so far everything has been [like] an operation, nose to the grindstone. We wanna give 200 per cent."

A few days ago, the Paris gig was just a myth, after Wood confirmed to the NME the existence of their upcoming warm-up circuit. “There’s going to be little club gigs that we’re gonna surprise ourselves to do as well,” he explained. “We’ll bung a few in next week or the week after, so look out for any Cockroaches gigs or whatever! I don’t know who we’ll be billed as but we’ll turn up somewhere and put a few to the test. Tiny, 200, 300 people kind of places.” Now that Paris has been confirmed, fans in other makor European cities will be keeping their eyes peeled for the chance to catch a rare live experience with the Stones.

The Rolling Stones To Appear As The Cockroaches?


Rolling Stones Ronnie Wood

The Rolling Stones could be back sooner than we thought, under the mysterious guise of The Cockroaches - an apt term as the blighters just refuse to go away. Anyway, Messrs Jagger, Wood, Richards and Wyatt are possibly going to be warming up for their four mega (priced) shows in London and New Jersey by playing a couple of warm-up club shows.

The band have been rehearsing for their 50th anniversary shows in Paris, and guitarist Ronnie Wood told the NME that they might well consider making a live appearance there. Describing their current routine, Wood explained  "We're all making a concentrated effort of being there on time every day, we start at three o'clock in the afternoon, we go through to dinner time, we have one break and so far everything has been [like] an operation, nose to the grindstone. We wanna give 200 per cent." He said mathematically incorrectly.

Even After 50 Years, The Rolling Stones' Reception Is Still 'Overwhelming'


Rolling Stones Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Mick Jagger

This year marks 50 years of The Rolling Stones, and just as we've always known, they continue to show us that they know how to celebrate. In November and December this year they are set to play four dates; half at London's O2 Arena and the other half at Brooklyn's Barclay Centre in Newark, New Jersey. They have also released a book entitled '50', have a photographic exhibition at London's Somerset House dedicated to them and a greatest hits album, boldly titled GRRRR! Tonight, though, fans came in their droves to the UK premier of 'Crossfire Hurricane', the new documentary of the band.

The documentary focuses mostly on the band's heyday, and includes never before seen footage of them, including interviews with all members the iconic rock and roll act, past and present. Keith Richards described the reception as 'overwhelming'. "I did not expect Leicester Square to be going bananas, do you know what I mean?" he said. "It was quite, it was heart warming to say the least, especially walking out you felt you were still in the movie. Take 2."

The NME also revealed that Ronnie Wood has said they'll be playing some tiny secret gigs: "There's going to be little club gigs that we're gonna surprise ourselves to do as well, we'll bung a few in next week or the week after, so look out for any Cockroaches gigs or whatever! I don't know who we'll be billed as but we'll turn up somewhere and put a few to the test. Tiny, 200, 300 people kind of places."

Rolling Stones Tickets Snapped Up In A Mere 7 Minutes


Rolling Stones Keith Richards Mick Jagger Charlie Watts Ronnie Wood

Rolling Stones tickets are cropping up for ridiculously inflated prices across the web after the 'official' batch sold out in just seven minutes this morning. According to The Telegraph, the 'cheap seats' were all gone by 9.03am (three minutes after they went on sale), while the more expensive tickets had been snapped up by 9.07am.

Unfortunately, the demand to see the Stones at London's O2 Arena means unofficial retailers will be handsomely paid for their tickets, some of which are being sold for thousands. Unless the band play Glastonbury - which is now hugely unlikely given the cost of tickets to the group's own shows - UK fans will have to shell out for tickets and flights to one of two concerts in Newark, New Jersey. On announcing the shows, frontman Mick Jagger said, "Everybody loves a celebration, and London and New York are two good places to do it in!" while Keith Richards offered, "Sorry to keep you all hanging around but the waiting is over. I've always said the best place for rock and roll is on the stage and the same is true for the Stones. I'm here with Mick, Charlie and Ronnie and everything is rocking. See you very soon!"

According to The Sun, Mick, Keith, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will make around £15 million from the four 50th anniversary shows.


Love In Vain: Fans Forced To Cough Up $561 For Rolling Stones Tickets


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Charlie Watts Ronnie Wood

Their stones probably don't roll as much as they used to back in the summer of love, but Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watt and Ronnie Wood certainly still know how to screw their fans. Delight has turned to dismay today (October 15, 2012) after The Rolling Stones announced that they'd be playing their first live shows for five years this winter, and then revealed exactly how much it would cost the public to see them.

Ticketmaster is showing prices ranging from $170 to a quite frankly offensive $651 for the band's two just-announced gigs at the O2 Arena in London on November 25th and 29th, making those that grumbled at paying up to $112 for people like Radiohead earlier in the year probably feel like they've got an absolute steal. Given that museums are normally free in the UK, people may be stunned to find themselves parting with such an amount to see these relics of a bygone age, the jingle of coins in the band's pockets possibly now the only thing that will be capable of drowning out the loud creaking in their joints as they grimace and limp about the O2 Arena come November.

The shows go on sale on October 19th and are being performed to mark the band's 50th anniversary in the music business. How disgusting then, that the same industry that gave them a chance in 1962, is now so untrusting of its new bands to build a career that its reliance on the nostalgia dollar results in prices like these.

The Rolling Stones Announce 50th Anniversary Live Shows

From the fast frames of the video, you initially might think it's an advert for second hand leather, but no! Those wrinkled surfaces are in fact faces, and they're emitting words! They're The Rolling Stones and they've announced some live shows! Muzu.tv posted a video this morning that saw Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts reveal that they will be playing two shows at the O2 Arena in London on November 25th and 29th, and two shows in the Prudential Center in New Jersey on December 13th and 15th. The shows are great news for fans who've been speculating all year what the band might do to mark their 50th year in the music business; so far they've been relatively disappointed, with just a photograph and memorabilia gallery and a new greatest hits release to show for the anniversary.

Review: Rolling Stones New Single ‘Doom And Gloom’


Rolling Stones Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Mick Jagger Charlie Watts

The Rolling Stones’ new single, ‘Doom and Gloom,’ one of two new songs on their forthcoming greatest hits compilation, Grrr!, due on November 12, is out, and we’ve had a listen.

The first thing to say is: well done to the guys for not producing and releasing a dubstep or electronica sound in a desperate and laughable attempt to glean a youthful audience. This is, intrinsically and quintessentially a Rolling Stones song, and for that; for managing to capture the raw, seemingly ephemeral sound that brought them a life of true rock and roll notoriety, we doff our entertainment caps at the ageing rockers. ‘Doom and Gloom’ is, at its core, a blues track with all the energy of a new born colt. Keith Richards and Ron Wood create a dirty rhythm upon which Jagger rasps his unclean vocals, and this all sways precipitously over a bespoke Charlie Watts beat.

"I had a dream last night that I was piloting a plane/And all the passengers were drunk and insane,” rasps Jagger - elongating every lyric he can get away with. In fact, the singing on the track is probably the least impressive thing about it, but when the mercurial frontman gives the mic a break, a harmonica solo ensues, and it works. It would be easy to reject anything new from such a legendary rock outfit. We could say it’s nothing original, and that they’ve past their best. And whilst they probably have, as long as they’re making decent songs, they might as well have fun whist it lasts.


Ronnie Wood Slams Outrageous Memorabilia Auction


Ronnie Wood Jo Wood Rolling Stones

Ronnie Wood has been angered by his ex-wife Jo Wood, who is planning an auction of art and memorabilia, which is described as a ‘joint sale.’ According to Reuters, Ronnie is claiming that he is part-owner of some of the items that are due to go on sale and he’s also pretty mad that the auction has been billed as a joint sale, when he specifically said he didn’t want to be involved. The auction is scheduled to be held at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills on October 27, 2012 so the Rolling Stones guitarist and his ex don’t have very long to clear the matter up.

From Ronnie’s statement, Reuters learned “Ronnie was asked by Jo some time ago if he wished to add some items to an auction and he said he did not want to participate. He is therefore shocked and disappointed that this auction is being misrepresented as a joint sale. This is not the case." However, Jo’s own spokesperson said that the former model is the owner of the items, as per the terms of their divorce. “This is Jo's auction, it includes all the items left to her following the divorce,” said the spokesperson during a telephone call. “She's had everything in storage for three years and can't keep it any longer. Ronnie has been kept in the loop of the sale.”

Ronnie may have been in the loop but he sure as hell isn’t happy about it. And he insists that some of the items are his personal possessions such as his tour clothes, which should not have passed to Jo in the divorce. “Ronnie feels saddened that Jo has taken this course of action and wants the public to know he has NOT teamed up with Jo on this outrageous sale,” the statement confirmed. The auction house told Reuters that the sale is still on: “It is their (Ronnie and Jo's) collection and it is part of their divorce settlement.” Sounds as though someone’s got their wires crossed somewhere along the line.
