Slash, Flea And Billy Gibbons Set To Appear On Ronnie Wood Solo Album
August 24, 2010
Rolling Stone member Ronnie Wood’s new album is due out 27th September 2010. Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Red Hot Chili Pepper’s bassist Flea and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons are among the artists making guest appearances.
Eagle Records are delighted to announce the release of Ronnie Wood’s brand new studio album “I Feel Like Playing”. The album is being released on 27 September 2010. Featuring twelve brand new cuts, written specially for this release, “I Feel Like Playing” takes its name (and cover) from one of Ronnie’s most vibrant recent artworks. The colour and verve of the artwork is equally reflected in the swagger and roll of the music on the album. The album boasts an amazing set of guest artists who have colluded with Ronnie to create something truly special.
Ronnie Wood needs no introduction to any fan of British rock music. Starting his career with The Birds and then Creation, it was when Ronnie joined the Jeff Beck Group that he truly started to stamp his identity on the music world. After that group split, Ronnie — along with Rod Stewart — joined up with ex-Small Faces Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones in The Faces. Whilst Ronnie (and Rod) moved on after a couple of years, The Faces are viewed by all rock fans as a truly classic band; and in fact they perform a handful of dates in 2010 with Mick Hucknall on vocals. After the release of his first solo album, Ronnie was invited to join the Rolling Stones in 1975 — and remains with them to this day.
Solo work has always co-existed alongside Ronnie’s band commitments and “I Feel Like Playing” is, he feels, his best album yet. Many of the friends made along the course of an incredible career appear on the album; guests include luminaries such as Slash, Flea, Billy Gibbons, Kris Kristofferson, Bobby Womack, Ian McLagan and more.
Rightly revered for his time with The Faces, Jeff Beck Group and of course The Stones, Ronnie Wood has continued to chart his own course and his output of both high quality music and art has been a constant. “I Feel Like Playing” is a great addition to his catalogue and all lovers of true British creative mavericks will find much to admire.”
