    One thing she doesn t address is her plastic surgeries and it s obvious she s had them What a depraved life the Rolling Stones lead I had read in another book on Mick Jagger what an insulated from reality life it really is, and she does get into thatat the end of the book, once she has been pulled off that teet for good The drug excessives, the carelessness with money, the removal of responsibility I loved how she kept saying her first son born from another man was happy living wit One thing she doesn t address is her plastic surgeries and it s obvious she s had them What a depraved life the Rolling Stones lead I had read in another book on Mick Jagger what an insulated from reality life it really is, and she does get into thatat the end of the book, once she has been pulled off that teet for good The drug excessives, the carelessness with money, the removal of responsibility I loved how she kept saying her first son born from another man was happy living with her parents in another part of the country I seriously doubt it Her hedonism didn t start with Ronnie Wood at 16 She was already at it at a much younger age, with two abortions under her belt, a serious lack of formal education and indulgent parents I have zero sympathy for any of these people They are given such a rare opportunity in success and they treat it with indifferent contempt Also, good luck with that alcohol addiction, Mr Wood He ll die a drunk Hopefully his young girlfriend at the time will weep prettily at his grave Personally I still don t consider him a Rolling Stone Hired help

    A book about the crazy rock n roll lifestyle that the Stones were living behind the scenes as they made their meteoric rise to fame and sustained it by Ronnie Wood girlfriend then wife who was around it for 30 years, Jo Woods She endured the ups and downs, the groupies, drugs, the extravagant lifestyle that soon came to be taken for granted The addictions and sickness when trying to clean up Trying to juggle being a parent with partying all night.

    Unlike some rock biographies that only hint at or gloss over past bad behavior and dirty deeds, Jo Wood names the names and what was going on where and when My first thought was that Ronnie Wood with a hefty contribution from Keith Richards would have to fight this one and offer his ex a big bucks payoff to keep it off the market But then I realized when it comes to The Rolling Stones, there really is no such thing as bad publicity Part of the allure is their five decades long image as car Unlike some rock biographies that only hint at or gloss over past bad behavior and dirty deeds, Jo Wood names the names and what was going on where and when My first thought was that Ronnie Wood with a hefty contribution from Keith Richards would have to fight this one and offer his ex a big bucks payoff to keep it off the market But then I realized when it comes to The Rolling Stones, there really is no such thing as bad publicity Part of the allure is their five decades long image as carousing, drinking and drugging bad boys and this book simply adds to the legend As a reviewer, I should only stick with the writing of the book itself, which is actually quite good It was fun to read and I had a hard time putting it down, simply because each episode of Jo and Ronnie s life together seemedunbelievable than what had happened before There were many anticipated page turners and the author kept it moving at a lively pace I thought the story bogged down a bit when she detailed her business ventures, which came off to me as advertisements for her products But on the other hand, that s who Jo Wood is as an entrepreneur and this is her story There were numerous questionable opinions throughout, such as Jo s continued declaration of being a good mother to her children while spending years in the bathroom free basing with Ronnie and partying non stop for days without sleep on Stones tours She gives credit to her family and nannies for their assistance, but her message reads loud and clear that she was not simply a dedicated party girl, but would do almost anything and put up with just about everything to hang onto Ronnie Wood And speaking of Ronnie Wood, whose name and reputation as a Rolling Stone is really the main incentive for reading this book he comes off as a self centered alcoholic and drug addict starved for attention His only saving grace is a carefree and anything for a laugh personality in pubs, parties and on tour, with enough talent as a musician to compliment Keith Richards as the second guitarist in the Stones Out of the spotlight he could be moody and mean, and continued a string of affairs with celebrities, groupies and drinking buddies who never seemed to age as he grew old enough to be his latest conquest s grandfather One cutting moment was when he looked at Jo the day after her fiftieth birthday and declared he never thought he would ever be married to someone that old But instead of being a testament to their life together, he meant it as a statement about how his mind works This is a fun and gossipy look inside The Rolling Stones protective bubble It may read as a fantasy for those of us on the outside, but it was everyday life for the inner circle If you re a fan, this is a welcome addition to your Stones library

    How boring Other than the train wreck they made of their lives at times, they are sheltered, indulged idiots I love a good train wreck, so those passages were entertaining The end couldn t betypical Kids grow up, she starts a little homey business based on new interests, the attention isn t on him any and she leaves her for an adoring 18 year old Yawn And mind you her seizure while freebasing didn t shock her into change but Crohn s disease did Give me a break..

  6. Bonnie|thebookishinsomniac Bonnie|thebookishinsomniac says:

    I read a lot of memoirs and quite a few on the rock and roll lifestyle and it will never not shock me So much cocaine I also learned what freebasing is, so that s cool Ending every chapter with and then my life changed forever or then the bomb dropped did get old, but it was a fun and fascinating read And another good reminder why I ll never marry a rock star.

    would make a good People magazine whatever happened to article but kind of boring and repetitive as a book It s exciting to be backstage at Rolling Stones concertsbut frustrating and worrisome to know your husband gets lots of attention from groupies and does not discourage itrock stars and their entourages do lots of drugs and stay up late frequentlynarcissistic male rock stars with serious drinking problems are difficult to live with and sometimes take up with younger women ra would make a good People magazine whatever happened to article but kind of boring and repetitive as a book It s exciting to be backstage at Rolling Stones concertsbut frustrating and worrisome to know your husband gets lots of attention from groupies and does not discourage itrock stars and their entourages do lots of drugs and stay up late frequentlynarcissistic male rock stars with serious drinking problems are difficult to live with and sometimes take up with younger women rather than remaining faithful to their wives.if you find these conclusions extraordinary and demand extraordinary amounts of anecdotal evidence before you will be convinced of them, this is the book for you If not, it gets tedious.Some passages were funny to me, not necessarily the ones intended to be so For instance, recapping her wedding to Ronnie Wood, she notes When it was over the two of us bounded out of the churchinto the white Bentley waiting to whisk us to the reception at a nearby pub.but before we could head off, Keith Richards jumped in too and.whipped out a little packet of coke..I was actually furious with myself for doing it, as I knew it would kill my appetite at the reception p 171 I know, right, it sucks when coke ruins your appetite Presumably she let her kids in on this nasty side effect when giving them drugs at age 15 or 16 so they could be introduced to drug use in a controlled setting

    There were interesting sections of this book by Jo Wood, ex wife of Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood, but mainly I found myself shaking my head at why she would put up with Ron Wood s behavior, chronic philandering, and substance abuse The money would NOT be worth it Jo admits she partied with her husband for many years leaving the nanny to do most of the raising of the children, one must assume , but after her 50th birthday party Ron turned to her and said, seriously, I can t believe I m ma There were interesting sections of this book by Jo Wood, ex wife of Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood, but mainly I found myself shaking my head at why she would put up with Ron Wood s behavior, chronic philandering, and substance abuse The money would NOT be worth it Jo admits she partied with her husband for many years leaving the nanny to do most of the raising of the children, one must assume , but after her 50th birthday party Ron turned to her and said, seriously, I can t believe I m married to a 50 year old woman He was over 60 at the time he said this, and she was still absolutely beautiful Sure enough, before long he ran off with a 17 year old Russian cocktail waitress you can t make this stuff up Jo has found a career for herself in recent years and now enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, so she has straightened herself out nicely Unfortunately, we can t say the same for her ex husband When Keith Richards tells you you have to cut out the booze and drugs, you KNOW you have a problem One wonders if Ron Wood will ever grow up 50 of 100 books pledged to read review during 2015 38 of 130 books pledged to read during 2020
