ublished this May 2015: Genesis Publications announces a new, signed limited edition book by Ronnie Wood: ‘How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary.’
Ten years before he joined the Rolling Stones, Ronnie Wood’s musical apprenticeship with The Birds catapulted him onto the stage of swinging London’s music scene, aged just 17.
Featuring a cast of characters including Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Keith Moon, Marianne Faithfull and many more, the story of Ronnie’s adventures was handwritten in his 1965 diary. Inspired by its discovery 50 years later, Ronnie Wood presents his journal for the first time, plus much more in a major new book for 2015.
“I suppose my own private world is in the diary,” says Wood.
Ronnie Wood’s 1965 handwritten diary has been produced in facsimile, down to its scuffs and scratches. Ronnie Wood reflects on the words he wrote 50 years ago and shares his memories in an extensive new manuscript.
He is creating a series of original and exclusive artworks to illustrate his words throughout the book. ‘How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary’ also uncovers rare and unseen photographs and ephemera.
“This diary shows what an amazing schedule I had,” exclaims Wood. “We’d be travelling the length and breadth of the country every day. With youth on our side, it was a continuing adventure. Our overspilling energy was enough to take care of work every night of the week. It was enough to chase the girls, enough to write songs, enough to rehearse and enough to travel. It was all go, all the time.”
Released in a limited edition of just 1965 copies, each book is signed by Ronnie Wood. Available to pre-order now fromwww.RonnieWoodBook.com
