Biography / Autobiography   

Lovereading view...

Not only a story of what it was like to be married to Rolling Stone, Ronnie Wood this is also the story of a woman finding herself, rebuilding her life, changing direction and finding success in business and regaining her health. She often had a hard time during her 30-year marriage but her story is not a bitter one, no recriminations, no salacious stories, just a good old-fashioned story of redemption and happiness found.

Synopsis

It's Only Rock 'n' Roll Thirty Years with a Rolling Stone by Jo Wood

When young model and mother Jo met rock star Ronnie Wood, she had no idea what her brief flirtation with this brilliant, charismatic musician would become. This is a moving and candid memoir from the woman who married the most controversial member of the Rolling Stones, and had the strength and courage to bounce back from heartbreak. A raw and rollicking narrative from the eye of the storm, Jo's extraordinary story of life as a Rolling Stone girlfriend, then wife, mother and more, is a never-before-heard account of the heady hedonistic Ronnie Wood years - the drugs, the roadies, the tours, and the booze - and a celebration of her new-found happiness as an entrepreneur, fashion icon and beauty expert. Following the public breakdown of her marriage, Jo moved on with a dignity and lack of bitterness that won her fans across the country. Now a successful businesswoman, a passionate campaigner of pure, organic living, and a thriving name in fashion, Jo has learnt to embrace her new found vitality, and in doing so has become the heroine of everyone from 20-something fashionistas to Strictly Come Dancing devotees. This is Jo's journey, from the breathtaking highs of her and Ronnie's shared infatuation and love, to the devastating lows of his sudden disappearances, drug-induced mania and seizures, and how she learned to walk away without regret or bitterness, and forgive. Published in hardback as 'Hey Jo'.
