Ronnie Wood: Diary Of A Mod Man
Half a century ago, 17-year-old Ronnie Wood kept a diary recording the highs and (mostly) lows of life in his cult R&B outfit The Birds.

He shakes hands, cracks a grin that gives him the look of a benevolent walnut and points at an object on the desk between us. “There it is,” he croaks, paternally.
