Page 3 Profile: Ronnie Wood, Rolling Stone
Wednesday 31 October 2012
A new Stones album?
There's a Greatest Hits compilation coming out in a couple of weeks' time, but the focus today is on Ronnie and his new fiancée. Wood, 65, is engaged to the theatre producer Sally Humphreys, who is 31 years his junior.
But then that's never been a problem...
The guitarist's first marriage was to Krissy Findlay in 1971, although he couldn't resist an affair with George Harrison's wife Pattie Boyd during this period. He later settled down with Jo Wood, but their marriage ended after 24 years when in 2008 he had a fling with 19-year-old cocktail waitress, Ekaterina Ivanova. That relationship didn't last: Wood was cautioned for assault and Ivanova described him as an "evil goblin king". Then came 30-something Brazilian model Ana Araujo…
And now Sally. His family must be delighted
They are, actually. Although Humphreys and Wood have been an item for only six months, they have known each other far longer. "Sally's not one of the bimbos he usually goes for. She's exactly what he needs. I don't think he can keep up with bimbos any more," his stepson Jamie said earlier this year. A source told The Sun: "Keith Richards has been laughing about it. He's sick of buying him wedding presents."
Let's hope it lasts
Or at least that there's a pre-nup. Jo Wood recently flogged £400,000-worth of Rolling Stones memorabilia, including Ronnie's 1955 Fender Strat and a drawing he did of Eric Clapton, autographed by the rock star pair.
