Kurzbeschreibung

When young model and mother Jo met rock star Ronnie Wood, she had no idea what her brief flirtation with this brilliant, charismatic musician would become. This is a moving and candid memoir from the woman who married the most controversial member of the Rolling Stones, and had the strength and courage to bounce back from heartbreak.

A raw and rollicking narrative from the eye of the storm, Jo’s extraordinary story of life as a Rolling Stone girlfriend, then wife, mother and more, is a never-before-heard account of the heady hedonistic Ronnie Wood years – the drugs, the roadies, the tours, and the booze – and a celebration of her new-found happiness as an entrepreneur, fashion icon and beauty expert.

Following the public breakdown of her marriage, Jo moved on with a dignity and lack of bitterness that won her fans across the country. Now a successful businesswoman, a passionate campaigner of pure, organic living, and a thriving name in fashion, Jo has learnt to embrace her new found vitality, and in doing so has become the heroine of everyone from 20-something fashionistas to Strictly Come Dancing devotees.

This is Jo’s journey, from the breathtaking highs of her and Ronnie’s shared infatuation and love, to the devastating lows of his sudden disappearances, drug-induced mania and seizures, and how she learned to walk away without regret or bitterness, and forgive.

Published in hardback as ‘Hey Jo’.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Eine duldsame Frau 22. Dezember 2013
Von Ossi
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
hier haben wir also mal wieder einen neuen Blick auf die sattsam bekannten Heroen. Freebasin, Kokain und endlose Party. Respekt vor dem Standing. Pech nur das Ronnie weiter Party will und Frau sich weiterentwickelt. Also : Nichts wirklich neues ! Bleibt nur die Frage warum lassen sich manche Frauen so bereitwillig entwerten ? Trotzdem sehr lesenswert ! Und eine sympathische Jo Wood !

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 8. Dezember 2013
Von Sputnik
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
First I read Keith Richards' memories ('Life') which were so detailed, analytic, and of course narrative. Richards' life is self-evidently not to be separated from the story of the Rolling Stones, as sometimes mentioned by himself. So I looked forward to get an other angle of view by reading the memories of Jo Wood. But at the end it was really disappointing, sometimes boring. Page after page, chapter after chapter, partys, drugs, alcohol, drugs, alcohol, partys, in between the 'adored children' … 'On tour with a Rolling Stone?' You will read little about this. 'The boys had a gig there and after this we had a big party with wonderful guests, XY came along and we partied until 9 a.m. next day' … I finally stopped reading near the end of the book. Jo was divorced after 30 years. She was asked to go to Bangladesh for some reason an she asked herself 'Where the hell is Bangladesh?' - after having travelled round the world again and again.
I couldn't stand this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You'll want to give these people a dope slap. 12. Juli 2013
Von Judith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Keith Richards once punched out Ron Wood for being too high at a concert to perform right. He would yell at Wood for free-basing and drinking too much. If Keith Richards thinks your drug use and drinking are out of control, you know you really, really have a problem. I had to wonder why in the world Jo Wood put up with Ron Wood's drugs, drinking, infidelity, temper tantrums, verbal abuse, and emotional coldness for so many years. She'd probably still be with him if he hadn't dumped her for a woman less than a third of his age.
Still, as a wise reviewer here on Amazon once pointed out, a review of a biography ought to be about how good the book is, not on whether or not the reader approves of the choices the subject made or the way s/he lived his/her life. That's why I'm giving this book five stars. It was a good read. I normally alternate between reading several books at one time, but this book was so good that I found myself ignoring the other books on my Kindle.
There were certainly things that bothered me about the book. One is a picture of 15 year old Jo strutting in front a line of leering soldiers. Another was Jo offering drugs to her kids because she thought it was best to learn about these things at home. I was also bothered by the way Jo put drinking and drugging with Ronnie over her kids welfare because she thought--no doubt correctly--that he might dump her if she didn't party with him. She claims she was always a good mother, but how can that be when one is locked in the bathroom free basing or crashing until four in the afternoon. Thanks goodness they had a good nanny.
I didn't have a strong opinion about Ron Wood when I started reading this book. To me, the Stones are all about Jagger and Richards. By the end of the book, I really disliked Wood. Apart from the substance abuse, he was self-absorbed, short tempered, and cold. Jo couldn't even trust to leave him in charge of his own children while she went out because of his very bad temper. In the end 62 year old Ronnie left Jo for a teenager. Well, Jo finally grew up and matured, while Ronnie never did.
This book is a little like watching a train wreck in progress--but a very interesting train wreck.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A BOOK YOU WON'T WANT TO PUT DOWN! 17. August 2013
Von Carol Wong - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This was an excellent account of life in the fast lane. I could scarcely put this book down it was so good! It is a very well written and candid biography of Jo Wood's life up to and encluding her thirty years of life with Ronnie Wood. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a peek into how the rich and famous live,love,and party.Drugs were very much a part of it all,but I doubt that will be a surprise to anyone.Definately worth the purchase.

3.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Saddest Stories Ever 6. August 2013
Von Readergirl22 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book at the urging of a friend. I'm not sorry I did so. Jo Wood is a survivor, but she paid such a price. The total erosion of her self is so documented here. To give up her life to live with a selfish, hedonistic drunk with no love for anyone save himself for so long was truly a waste. Jo Wood is a beautiful, talented woman, but to read her words is painful. She still obviously loves her ex and looks back longingly at her former lifestyle. This story is a tragedy with a somewhat happy ending. I hope she meets someone who values her for herself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read! The sort of juicy rock tell-all I couldn't put down! 17. November 2013
Von April Goodwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a biography junkie and this was one helluva fix! I thoroughly enjoyed living vicariously the life of A-list rock and rollers. It helped that Jo seems like a wonderful person who really loved Ron Wood. The fact that he did her the way he did is hard to swallow. He must be out of his mind.

A minor quibble: I would have liked Jo to be more forthcoming in explaining why she chose to be with Ronnie in the early days versus taking care of her young child. A little reflection. Throughout the book I said to myself: "She must be a Pisces." And when she revealed her birthday at one point, I smiled in recognition that she allowed herself to put him above even her own first-born. The really baffling aspect of it is that she is obviously a very warmhearted, loving lady and it does't gibe with that behavior. The only thing I can figure is that she was a teen mom and didn't want to stop partying down!

Jo's heart shines through on every page and this does not read as a bitter, "women scorned" type of book. She handled the unthinkable in a graceful, spiritual way and showed her true colors, just as Mister Rockstar showed his.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Loved how honest she was. 4. Mai 2013

I loved how honest she was but found it hard to come to grips with how she put a man in front of her children. A really good read.
