Waking With Up… With The 75 Birthday Of RON WOOD

Works faster than caffeine

1 June 2022

Ronald David Wood, better known in the rock and roll world as RONNIE WOOD,
was born in Hillingdon, London on 1 June 1947. Happy 75 to one of the most
respected and prolific guitar players in music history.

He started his career in 1964 with English R & B band The Birds (1964-1966),
then switched to The Jeff Beck Group for 2 years, and 2 albums (as bass player).

Thereafter he joined the Faces after Steve Marriott left (then named ‘Small Faces‘),
made 4 LPs with the Rod Stewart fronted lads, before joining The Rolling Stones
in 1975.

He’s now gearing up with Jagger and Keef to go on tour to celebrate their
60th birthday. In between making 11 albums with The Stones, he found
time for 7 solo longlayers.

To celebrate Wood’s 75th birthday I woke up with a classic cracker
called Stay With Me, co-written with Rod The Mod for the Faces in 1971.

Stay with me, stay with me
For tonight you’d better stay with me, oh yeah
Stay with me, stay with me
For tonight you’d better stay with me



Lads Rock Nostalgia – FACES Released LP ‘A NOD IS AS GOOD AS A WINK…’ 50 Years Ago Today

17 November 2021


Who: 60s/70s beat band Small Faces minus founder Steve Marriott who
left to form Humble Pie, but featuring Rod Stewart, who also continued
his booming solo career along the way, and guitarist Ronnie Wood
Active: 1969–1975, 2009–2011 / 4 LPs

Anniversary album: A NOD IS AS GOOD AS A WINK…
Released: 17 November 1971 – 50 years ago today

AllMusic wrote: “The Faces’ third album, A Nod Is as Good as a Wink…to a Blind Horse, finally gave the group their long-awaited hit single in “Stay with Me,” helping send the album into the Billboard Top Ten, which is certainly a testament to both the song and the album, but it’s hard to separate its success from that of Rod Stewart’s sudden solo stardom… There are few records that feel like a never-ending party like A Nod — the slow moments are for slow dancing, and as soon as it’s over, it’s hard not to want to do it all over again. It’s another classic — and when you consider that the band also had Long Player to their credit and had their hands all over Every Picture in 1971, it’s hard to imagine another band or singer having a year more extraordinary as this.” Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Lads rockers playing lads boogie-woogie fueled with
lads riffs-licks-hooks and super deluxe lads icon Rod Stewart in the middle.

Key track: classic single Stay With Me
