Artist, author, producer and raconteur Ronnie Wood returns to his greatest love, music, with the release of his new album Ronnie Wood with His Wild Five – Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry

Released by BMG on 15 November, the 11-track album was recorded live at Wimborne’s Tivoli Theatre last year and is a loving nod to one of Ronnie’s musical heroes, Chuck Berry. The album features guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters. Featuring tracks including Tribute to Chuck Berry written by Wood and Worried Life Blues written by Maceo Merriweather, and with the album artwork hand-painted by Ronnie himself, Mad Lad will be available digitally, on CD, on heavyweight vinyl, deluxe box set (CD, LP and 12×12 artcard of the album artwork) and in a super deluxe limited-edition box set (including CD, LP, 12×12 art print, signed and numbered set list and T-Shirt).

The album will be the first in a trilogy to be recorded by Wood and the band in the coming years, each paying tribute to Ronnie’s musical heroes. Ronnie chose Chuck Berry for the first album as he has been a lifelong fan, has toured with him and also, to honour his sad passing just over two years ago.

The album is released as Ronnie is due to be honoured at the London Film Festival (12th October) with the premiere of the Mike Figgis directed Somebody Up There Likes Me, an in-depth documentary about Ronnie’s life and careers both in the Rolling Stones and in the art studio. The film will be released in early 2020.

Ronnie has also announced that he will be performing with his band at the iconic O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 21st November. Tickets will be on general sale on Friday 13th September at 10am: https://ronniewood.lnk.to/shepherdsbushPR

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
