Happy Birthday to Ronnie Wood, the Rolling Stones guitarist celebrates his 73rd birthday on June 1, 2020, and he’s thanking his fans for his birthday wishes on his official Instagram account. The father of six recently went viral for sharing an adorable photo of his twin daughters, Gracie and Alice who celebrated their fourth birthdays in May. Ronnie shared a video where he stood outside wearing black jeans and a white tee-shirt and a pair of sunglasses and looked appreciative of the greetings on his special day.
Born on June 1, 1947, in London, England, Wood began his music career in 1964 when he joined the London band The Birds. He then played in a band called The Creation before joining the Jeff Beck Group with whom he recorded two albums: Beck-Ola and Truth. After Wood left the Jeff Beck Group he recorded a solo artist with his good friend Keith Richards who was already in the Rolling Stones.
When Mick Taylor left the Stones, Ron Wood took his place — he officially joined the band in 1975 and has been with the Stones ever since, though he continued performing with other bands.
