June 1st marked 40 years since Ronnie Wood made his concert debut with The Rolling Stones -June 1st, 1975 in Baton Rogue, Louisiana, which was Woody’s 28th birthday.
To celebrate the milestone, The Stones have put together a short video in which Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts each share their thoughts on Woody.
Mick: “Ronnie’s a great friend of mine and we always have good times together… I’m glad that he’s with us.”
Keith opens the video: “I’ve worked with Ronnie longer than anybody else in the Stones, apart from Mick and Charlie, of course… I love his enthusiasm above all.”
Charlie: “He’s very, very funny and a very likable man.”
And of course, the last word in the video was left for Ronnie, who says, “I can’t believe it’s 40 years ago. It feels like 20… It never wears off.”
The Rolling Stones hit Nashville on Wednesday and Pittsburgh on Saturday as their Zip Code tour rolls on across the US.
