Even at age 70, Ronnie Wood manages to keep rolling along.
The Rolling Stones guitarist, who had surgery for lung cancer earlier this year, told the Guardian when it comes to sex, “You’ve got to have that every day.” Wood married his third wife, theater producer Sally Humphreys, in 2012. Their twin daughters, Gracie and Alice, were born last year. The rocker also has four other children.
In a question and answer session with the British publication, Wood – who joined the Stones in 1975 after stints in the Jeff Beck Group and the Faces – said the song he’d like played at his funeral would be “The Resurrection Shuffle.” For the record, that track was a 1971 hit for Northern English rock trio Ashton, Gardner and Dyke.
Wood also characterized himself as “fearless” and said the most important lesson life has taught him is, “Don’t give up.” As for his guilty pleasure, Wood responded, “I am not guilty about it, but caviar.”
Wood chose “X-ray vision” as his desired superpower, explaining, “I was always intrigued by that when I was a kid.”
When asked what makes him unhappy, Wood responded, “Not a lot – I’m quite a happy bloke.” Expanding on that theme, he explained, “Right now is a pretty good time in my life. I am existing on three-monthly check-ups, but, yeah, I am very grateful.”
