Kurzbeschreibung

In this wild, behind-the-scenes portrait of one of the biggest rock bands in history, Jo Wood comes clean about her three decades as the girlfriend and eventually the wife of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood. This startlingly honest, laugh-out-loud memoir vividly describes life on tour, in the studio, at the legendary parties—and every raucous moment in between.

From teenage model to hard-partying rock 'n' roll devotee, through motherhood, marriage, breakdown, and the challenge of starting over again, Jo Wood has had a roller-coaster ride of a life. At the age of sixteen, Jo burst onto the British modeling scene and became a fixture at London's most glamorous parties. A few years later, just twenty-two years old and a single mom, she met Ronnie Wood and her life changed forever.

Holding nothing back, Jo paints an astonishing picture of the sex, drugs, booze, groupies, and—above all—the fun that filled her thirty years as a member of the Stones' inner circle. Telling never-before-heard stories about what life on the road with the Stones was really like, she offers intimate portraits of the band's legendary cast of characters, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Jerry Hall, and Patti Hansen. She recalls the excitement of getting to know international A-list celebrities like Kate Moss, Andy Warhol, Johnny Depp, and Slash.

Jo also opens up about her family life with Ronnie: their passionate love affair, the demands of being a mother by day and a wild child by night, and eventually coping with Ronnie's increasingly difficult behavior as his addictions consumed him. For the first time, she reveals her heartbreaking account of what happened when Ronnie left her for an eighteen-year-old waitress, explaining how she was able to forgive, live without bitterness or regret, and find new happiness as an entrepreneur and organic beauty expert.

Including never-before-seen photographs from Jo's personal collection, It's Only Rock 'n' Roll is a compelling piece of rock 'n' roll history from a woman with a backstage pass and front-row seat. Enchanting, candid, and moving, this page-turning fairy tale of fame and fortune has the best of the era's many euphoric and reckless moments within its pages.

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.

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 !

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.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Jo Wood - what a life - Review 5. März 2016
Von QueenD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm glad this book was on sale, because I wouldn't pay full price for it. After reading this, it's a wonder any of these people are still alive, if you believe the amounts of drugs they ingested. I suppose Jo Wood led an interesting life, but it was on the edge, and after a while, became "the same old thing" and boring. She got by on her good looks and chutzpah, but it seemed she was always looking for acceptance, even by the reader by
saying she never touched this, or that ever again, as if we should congratulate her for giving up one form of drug taking for another...I felt that
she came across as very selfish, putting her own social needs before those of her children, but it does give good insight as to how good looking girls can get caught up in this crazy life....and it's really no life at all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Honest take on being a rock 'n roll road rat 24. März 2014
Von CatRox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I know others in their reviews have taken exception to Jo's account of the drug use during her earlier years and the fact she left her first son to go on the road with Ronnie.
If you didn't live the rock 'n roll lifestyle during those years it's understandably hard to get where she was coming from.
I'm a few years younger than Jo and didn't get into the music biz on a "professional" level until 1980. But in my own way I, too lived the dream of "it's only rock 'n roll but I like it".
I wasn't married to a rock star but I was on the crew for many different bands ( first as a lighting designer then later as catering consultant ) and got to be a guest ( of my audio engineer hubby ) on many other tours.Not going to name-drop but I was lucky enough to be on most of the major tours of the 1980s and early 1990s.
Unfortunately I never got to work on a Stones tour but know some folks who did.
I don't want to excuse the rampant drug use back then and it's tragic so many got caught up as badly as they did.
Thankfully I was one of the lucky ones able to indulge without becoming addicted but boy do I ever understand why some got lost.
I've read many memoirs by others who were also road rats during that time; many are nowhere near as honest as this...and let me say here and now that "road rat" is NOT a derogatory term but simply what many of us called ourselves back then. It wasn't considered as demeaning as "roadie" and way above the names we called some groupies back then. A road rat was a hard working member of the crew; band and management included.
Jo's memoir is one of the most honest depictions of what life on the road was like back then:
Back in the day when some crew members were "paid" for certain off-the-books chores with ounces of cocaine...after all it kept us awake enough to perform our duties. Back in the day when someone like Jo was young enough to trust her kids would be OK with their caretakers and usually were for the most part. Back in the day when those of us bitten with the insatiable urge to be part of the rock 'n roll lifestyle would tally up any costs later. Back when we were young enough to be so in love with our mate who was in the biz that we embraced it all. Back when we loved the whole rock biz so much we'd do anything to be part of it. Back when being 50 years old seemed light years away.
What touched me the most is how she talks about how fast you get dumped by people you considered great friends when your association with whatever band comes to an end...for whatever reason. It's one of the most hurtful things imaginable and something I've endured more than once. In rock 'n roll, your best buddies are there only as long as you're part of the club.
The second you're not....no one wants to know you.
Those who have never experienced such a thing...imagine if everyone you know and cherish in your life apart from blood relatives all of a sudden decided you no longer matter.
If you're looking for a gut-wrenchingly honest account from someone who was a member of an inner rock royalty sanctum and lost that....read this book.
Jo if you read this, all I can say is thank you for your honesty and GO girl!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Success... 10. Januar 2016
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What a wonderful read! I am a product of the seventies (minus the drugs) and for me a wonderful era.
Never a big fan of the Stones...enjoyed some of their music but really not my cup of tea...lol...
Kudos to this fine woman. Went thru hell but came out of it a strong resourceful woman.
Being married to a rock star in itself is difficult in itself. Being married to a narcissist makes it even worse. I think they all have an inflated sense of self, but I guess that comes with being famous. I think Ms. Wood handled herself admirably, she had to be a special person to live that kind of life for so long.
I enjoyed this book tremendously...
4.0 von 5 Sternen A Rolling Stone Gathers ... Nothing 17. Februar 2016
Von Susan Rehm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was bracing myself for another vitriol-fueled missive by a bitter jilted rock wife who was traded in for a younger model, but this book was a refreshing change of pace. While the content raises eyebrows at points: As a teenaged mother, a newly-divorced Jo foisted her infant son onto her mother ("mum's still young"), spent the good part of a year enveloped in free-base vapor with husband Ronnie, and taught her children the nuances of "good pot," you find yourself rooting for Jo. Despite all, she managed to pull herself through and cut the dead wood -- literally. While Jo Wood recognizes her shortfalls and appears to have gained some wisdom and maturity along the way, you have to ask why she stuck around with that loser for so many years? Ronnie Wood is painted as a narcissistic hedonist who sheltered life as a Rolling Stone (and substance abuse) has stripped him of all sense of reality and responsibility. The descent into alcoholism is all too familiar, as in the case of these types of memoirs, yet amusing at times. ("Why would Ronnie bring a raggedy stuffed owl on holiday?" When his adult children met his first under-aged girlfriend, they asked her, "Why are you hanging around with our dad? He's old enough to be your grandfather.") The book has a predictable happy ending. Jo moves on, goes on a spiritual journey and starts her own business. Ronnie marries a woman half his age and fathers twins. They're all friends. Moral of the story: A rock star does not a good husband make.
