He Also Called The Band “Indestructible”
The Rolling Stones had its fair share of challenges this year after they were forced to postpone a run of shows following Mick Jagger’s heart surgery. But that wasn’t their only health scare.
In a recent interview with The Sun, Ronnie Wood spoke about his 2017 cancer battle, “After 50 years of chain smoking, my life was hanging by a thread. But I survived. The doctors were able to remove the tumor from my left lung. Thank God the cancer had not spread. Now my lungs are working like a young man who never smoked. I finally quit smoking four years ago.”
He added, “Not to forget Charlie, who had laryngeal cancer a few years ago, and Keith, with his heavy bleeding after falling from a palm tree. Everything went well, a big miracle. The Stones are simply indestructible.”
Wood also gave an update on the follow-up of 2016’s Blue & Lonesome. He said, “The new album is like a puzzle. We still have to put the missing pieces together. We hope to release it in 2020 and then continue our world tour.”
A few weeks ago, The Rolling Stones were named as one of the highest-grossing tour acts of the decade with $929,196,083.
