Five Decades of The Rolling Stones


Last night the Rolling Stones played their second of two shows at London's O2 arena. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts were joined by past members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, as well as guest performers Eric Clapton and Florence Welch, for one of the most anticipated concerts in music history.

The show did not disappoint. Highlights included a heartfelt rendition of 'You Can't Always Get What You Want', with the Stones accompanied by the London Youth Choir, and a sizzling solo from Clapton who jammed with the band on the Muddy Waters classic, 'Champagne and Reefer'.

In celebration of the bands' 50th anniversary, Ronnie Wood has created DECADES, a new collection of his signed paintings. The set aims to capture the raw energy of a live Stones performance. 'Everything I've done, I've had to do,' Ronnie explains. 'I had to play in a band, had to be part of the Stones, I had to play a guitar. I had to paint and had to be like Michelangelo.'

Ronnie Wood's signed, limited edition art collection will soon be available from Genesis Publications. Please submit your email address below to be among the first to hear about and to secure your piece of art, and a piece of history.
