This fifty-year portrait of Ronnie Wood, made by Mike Figgis (LEAVING LAS VEGAS), shows that the guitarist is still at the top of his game. Surprisingly so, given his history of addiction and hardship. It all started in North London, where his older brothers originated his musical interests. Once his career took off, he joined a great list of defining bands such as The Birds, Jeff Beck, The New Barbarians, Rod Stewart, The Faces and ofcourse The Rolling Stones. He joined Mick Jagger and the rest around 1975. That time - a vacuum of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll - makes for a lot of tasty anecdotes. However, the switch to his current family life is just as interesting and spectacular.

Mike Figgis, UK, 2019, 71 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Ronnie Wood, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Damian Hirst.
