1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing tabloid fodder., 11 Nov 2009
This review is from: Ronnie (Paperback)
I was looking forward to reading this book because I like the image of Ronnie Wood - hard drinking, womanising rock star with a soft centre and a second career as an above average artist. Sadly "Ronnie" did not live up to the promise. Ronnie Wood has had a very interesting life, in his imagination anyway. Large parts of this book are hard to believe, and I got the sense that he was writing what people wanted to have happened rather than what actually did.

Sexual indiscretions are recounted ad nauseam (Ronnie doesn't kiss and tell, he shouts it from the rooftops), and the constant name-dropping becomes depressingly tedious. His best friends include other musicians (as one would expect), artists and painters, sportsmen and women (he apparently played tennis with John McEnroe), politicians and of course their wives.

"Ronnie" is not a book that I would recommend, and it strengthens my belief that it is better to stick to biographies rather than autobiographies when dealing with people with huge egos. I gave it one star because of its sheer audacity. Oh, and he finishes off by suggesting his next literary venture might be a work of fiction - you've already done it Ron!
