Take home this American Special Stratocaster signed by Ronnie Wood.
This guitar was signed and donated in honor of George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison, a Best Fest production.
Guitarist or painter? Both apply equally to Ronnie Wood, for he is one of those rare human beings that have been given two amazing talents and yet he’s not allowed one to dominate – happy to concentrate fully on the one that he’s working on at any particular time.
Ronnie Wood is disarmingly self-effacing about his talent and he has been called ‘the ultimate sideman’, yet his gift as a guitar player, especially on slide guitar or the notoriously difficult lap-steel guitar, place him well above the status of a mere sideman.
Ronnie Wood played his first ever concert with the Rolling Stones on his twenty-eighth birthday in Baton Rouge Louisiana; it was 1975 and he had been brought in to replace Mick Taylor who had recently quit the band. Ronnie was already a veteran, having played first with The Birds, before joining Jeff Beck’s band, where he played bass, and later the Faces with Rod Stewart.
