Oscar-nominated director Mike Figgis shines a light on Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, with backing ‘vocals’ from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart and on…
A rock legend, Ronnie first made waves with Jeff Beck, later with The Faces late ‘60s – early ‘70s. For the past 45 years..!!! he has been a member of The Rolling Stones. Against the odds he has not only survived the usual suspects of drink & drugs – and the pox’t cancer!! But he’s thrived in a business driven by that lucky combo of brilliance, charisma and being in the right place when it mattered.
A ‘youthfully creased’ candid Ronnie reflects on his life with warmth, humour and above all: immense honesty. Figgis traces Wood’s life from his childhood in West London to his rock ’n’ roll beginnings, the art school influences, his journey to stardom and the characters he met along the way. An iconic list of peers, family and friends witness for us, an extraordinary life on and off stage.
A slender, gloriously shot portrait of a Stone who just keeps on Rolling (never mind!). (research Chris Coetsee) A fantastic real folklore yarn of mythical rock-n-roll proportions for this first taste of escape. Come.
