Zitat des Tages von Ronnie Wood:
All of us can't wait to get out there whatever way.
Jo left me a few months ago for 10 days. I get this note: I'll come back when the real Ronnie comes back.
I can't be left unsupervised.
We're great, Jo and me. We're pals, and I guess sex has a lot to do with it. She's also brilliant at clearing a room. So protective, so devoted. I can't believe how much she loves me.
I just think my body can't handle it any more. I did try a little drink a while back, and I was actually physically ill. I went into an immediate depression, and felt awful, just dreadful. So that's it. I'm over it now.
I find it hard to get old and hard to say, 'No.'
You don't make solo albums to have hits.
My real self is probably more creative and more frightening than any sort of drink or drug-induced state.
I used to worry, 'I've lost my family.' They hated me for a while, but they're very resilient.
I love to go to Ireland just to relax.
It's good fun, making a solo album, because there's perhaps songs that wouldn't get used for the Stones or any other kind of outfit that I'm working with. It's just nice to be the boss.
My dad lived till he was 78, my mum was in her 80s, and I've got two uncles who are in their 90s now.
I'm terrible with money, absolutely awful. I'm always losing it.
What can I say, I'm an alcoholic. It's what I do.
The last show we played, I was straight as a die. It did feel weird not to be hiding behind alcohol or dope, but being focused was... good.
It's taken folk a while to come around, hasn't it? Even the boys in the band weren't too sure about the whole art thing. They just wanted me to concentrate on the music. But they respect it now.
I always want to rock.
Having loved the Stones all the time I was growing up, I wasn't about to see them go and split up. It got very close to it in the 80s, when Mick thought that Keith hated him and vice versa.
When I first started all this, it was mostly music fans that came along, Stones fans. But now, I'm being taken seriously. I've got highfalutin' art collectors and everything!
Let's face it: I paint well. I know it, you know it. There's no arguing really, is there?
I've got an article where my mum says that I used to run home from school to watch the Stones on TV. Right from when I was at college I wanted to be in that band.
I'm a Gemini, so I have a great time with the other guy.
They say you can smoke 400 cigs a day and drink 20 cups of coffee, but you can't have a line or a drink again.
There's a basic rule which runs through all kinds of music, kind of an unwritten rule. I don't know what it is. But I've got it.
I like it when journalists are nice to me, and it's happening more and more.
Mick has expressed an interest in coming to the gallery tonight because he's seen me behaving myself lately. He is being much more supportive, which is nice.
When I first saw Jo, I said boom, that was it, because I'm a one-woman man.
I heard this massive thud. I spun around, and there Keith was, on the ground. He'd cut his gums up on impact, he was very bloody, and clutching his head. I think it was a kind of wake-up call for him.
Mick says, Would you join the band? I say to him, Mick, you know I'd be there in a New York minute.
Married life is absolutely brilliant.
I go off into Dublin and two days later I'm spotted walking by the Liffey with a whole bunch of new friends.
I'm more lost when I'm not on tour. I'm in a bit of a muddle at nine o'clock - 'Where's the stage?' On tour, there are people directing and supervising you.
When I'm left on my own I'm my own worst enemy.
It's an awful world out there. You've got to make people happy.
The blues echoes right through into soul, R&B and hip hop. It's part of the make-up of modern music. You can't turn your back on the blues.
In my family, they were all big boozers.
