Terry Rawlings' Rock on Wood, new edition.

The Origin Of A Rock & Roll Face By Terry Rawlings

Acid Jazz are proud to continue their book publishing adventures by releasing the biography of yet another of Rock’n’Roll’s all time greats: Ronnie Wood. Written by acclaimed music writer Terry Rawlings, Rock On Wood is the story of a musician who has worked his way through some of the best-known and fondly remembered bands of the 1960s and 1970s. Starting with his childhood and chronicling his career with now legendary groups like The Birds, The Creation, The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, The Jeff Beck Group, and, of course, The Rolling Stones, the book explores the history of one of Rock’n’Roll’s hardest grafters as well documenting his sometime chaotic private life!

Written with Wood’s co-operation and augmented with contributions from friends and family members, Rawlings paints the portrait of a regular guy who also happened to be part of some of the most influential band line-ups in the history of Rock’n’Roll. Here is a bloke who helped shape music as we know it, and you just know you want to take him for a pint! Rock On Wood brims with great stories about the hedonistic world that was the music scene in the 60s and 70s, and deftly reassures the reader that the reason Ronnie Wood is today still a much-loved and respected musician is that he simply followed his passion for music. No airs and graces, just solid craftsmanship.
