Quite a Push - Drawing by Ronnie WoodQuite A Push, Drawing by Ronnie Wood

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood began painting and drawing as a child. He went on to study art at Ealing Art College in London and he has continued to create art throughout his musical career. Ronnie Wood is now publishing How Can It Be?: A Rock & Roll Diary, which is a recreation of the 1965 diary of the then 17 year-old Wood. The book includes original sketches from the time as well as some new sketches from his memories of the stories in the diary. A download code for Wood’s accompanying ‘How Can It Be?’ single is included when you purchase the book.

In conjunction with the release of the book, Wood has released a set of limited edition art prints. The drawings are inspired by the content of his diary. The eight art prints are available as individual signed artworks. Ronnie Wood says about the new drawings: ‘I just closed my eyes, opened them, and drew what was photographically in my mind after all those years. It all comes flying back.’
