Ronnie Wood, on 40 years in The Rolling Stones (2015): “Sometimes I feel that my whole career with The Birds, Jeff Beck and The Faces was one long audition to join the Stones. I still think of myself as a fan as much as a band member. When I first heard their stirring music coming from the tent at the Richmond Jazz And Blues festival in 1963 something happened inside me and I knew that was the band I wanted to be in. The thought of being in the Stones is what gave me the drive to carry on.” (Ref. ronnie wood)
