How Can It Be 50 Years Ago Today?

18 Aug 2015

How Can It Be 50 Years Ago Today?
50 years ago, on August 18th 1965, Ronnie Wood and the Birds recorded their third single, ‘How Can It Be?’ The song now lends its name to Ronnie’s new, signed book and vinyl boxed set.

‘I thought, "How can it be that I kept a diary?” and that’s why we used my song title for the name of this book.’ – Ronnie Wood

Ronnie Wood has reimagined his original composition to accompany his 1965 diary, which he embellishes with entertaining commentary and illustrations. Ronnie recorded the 2015 version of ‘How Can It Be?’ at British Grove Studios, and the finished track will be pressed on a limited edition picture disc of just 1,965 copies.
