Ronald David "Ronnie" Wood (born 1 June 1947) is an English rock guitarist and bassist best known as a former member of The Jeff Beck Group, Faces, and a member of The Rolling Stones since 1975. Wood began his career in 1964, when he joined The Birds on guitar.He then joined the mod group The Creation, but only remained with the group for a short time, and appeared on a small number of singles. They released two albums, Truth and Beck-Ola, which became moderate successes.The group split in 1969, and Wood departed along with lead vocalist Rod Stewart to join former Small Faces members Ronnie Lane, Ian Mc Lagan, and Kenney Jones in a new group, dubbed the Faces.
The Faces released their debut album, First Step, in 1970.
The group went on to release Long Player and A Nod Is as Good as a Wink... Their last LP, entitled Ooh La La, was released in 1973.
After the group split, Wood began several solo projects, eventually recording his first solo LP, I've Got My Own Album to Do, in 1974.
The album featured former bandmate Mc Lagan as well as former Beatle George Harrison and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones, a longtime friend of Wood's.
President Grover Cleveland, South African anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela, writer J. Salinger, artist Pablo Picasso, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and silver screen royalty such as Humphrey Bogart, Laurence Olivier, Fred Astaire, Robert Redford, and Jerry Seinfeld are all examples of older men dating younger women.
Older men who date much younger women are not all cads who left their wives in a desperate attempt to relive their checkered university years.
Likewise, the much younger girlfriends are not all brainless wonders content with being eye candy.
Richards soon invited Wood to join The Rolling Stones, after the departure of Mick Taylor.
Wood joined in 1975, and has remained a member ever since.
