June 1st = Ronnie Wood Day

Today (June 1st) is a big day for Ronnie Wood for two reasons:  1. It’s his birthday and 2. This marks the 41st anniversary of Wood joining The Rolling Stones.

Ronnie’s 69th birthday is also extra special after he and his wife, Sally Humphreys, welcomed twin girls yesterday (May 31st), Gracie Jane and Alice Rose.

So, besides a lot of diapers and onesies, what else would we give Ronnie for his birthday?  How about officially dropping that “New Guy” joke status that still lingers among the Stones.  It’s been 41 years!  He’s not exactly “new” anymore.
