Sydney: Satisfaction you can get

Tim Roxborogh gathers no moss, seeing four inspiring exhibitions in two days.

“What does Ronnie Wood even do?” I was so aghast when a mate of mine — an alleged fellow Rolling Stones fan — asked me this that I wanted to throw a bucket of water on him.

“Ronnie’s a legend!” was my response, before reminding Semi-Ignorant Music Friend #1 that pre joining the Stones in 1975, Ronnie had also been in the Jeff Beck Group in the 60s as well as in the Faces in the 70s alongside Rod Stewart. It’s Ronnie playing everything from electric guitar to 12-string to bass on his best mate Rod’s solo career-launching Maggie May back in 1971. For Ronnie it’s 50 years of rock ‘n’ roll, 43 of which he’s been in the self-proclaimed “greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world”. That and all his best-selling artwork, so yeah, in the words of Ron Burgundy, Ronnie Wood is kind of a big deal.
