Ronnie Wood to publish lost diary

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood is gearing up to publish his diary from 1965 after it was lost for 50 years.

He started keeping the journal at the age of 17 as he began his career. Now he’s rediscovered it, he’s preparing a series of sketches to accompany its release via Genesis Publications.

They say: “Ten years before he joined the Rolling Stones, Ronnie’s musical apprenticeship with The Birds catapulted him onto the stage of swinging London’s music scene.

“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 were handwritten in his journal.”

Wood observes: “I suppose my own private world is in the diary.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
