"The Rolling Stones Set Lists, Ready Set Go!" by Ronnie Wood


"The Rolling Stones Set Lists - Ready Set Go!" the signed, limited edition book and print set by Ronnie Wood 'During rehearsals, I draw up set lists on big canvases, putting down the songs and the keys they're in. We hang these set lists on the rehearsal room walls so we know where we've been and where we're going.' – Ronnie Wood Over the last two decades, each song the Rolling Stones have played in rehearsals has been recorded by Ronnie Wood in a series of hand painted set lists. The result is a unique collection of canvases that document sell-out tours across the globe, such as the band's landmark 50 & Counting tour, historic concerts such as 2016's performance in Havana, as well as closed-door sessions for their latest album, 'Blue & Lonesome'. Now for all fans of the Rolling Stones, Ronnie Wood presents his painted set lists for the first time. 'An insight into the Stones' development… an epic tome.' – Matt Everitt, BBC Radio 6 Music The Set Lists 'I illustrate the band's set lists, sometimes Keith and Mick add little doodles, and they become works of art in their own right.' Ronnie Wood Ronnie Wood has chosen more than 100 painted set lists to be published for the first time. Presented in chronological order, each year of set lists is introduced with a selection of photographs and Stones memorabilia, from 'A Bigger Bang' in 2005 to the latest 2018 'No Filter' tour. The collection follows the group's travels to foreign rehearsal locations that were kept secret at the time. They reveal the songs rehearsed for historic performances, such as the Rolling Stones' 2014 inaugural concert in Israel, as well as documenting the shows as eventually played. The colorful hand-lettering recalls Wood's early art school days when he worked as a sign writer. The set lists are visually eye-catching and filled with fascinating details. Wood's calligraphy is interspersed with his own illustrations, doodles by fellow band members, and jotted notes that all add up to paint a picture of life on the road with the Rolling Stones. The Manuscript 'It could be somebody coming in at the wrong moment, or forgetting the arrangement and suddenly going to the middle eight, when you can see Keith mouthing, "What the hell is he doing?" It's all part of what keeps the band vibrant.' - Ronnie Wood In a new manuscript spanning 198 pages, Wood offers a glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most famous rock bands in the world. Through Wood's artwork and his personal reflections, the reader is given an insight into the band's touring over the years. Throughout the book, Ronnie Wood brings the story of the set lists to life, as he discusses the band's creative process, learning up to 80 songs per tour; personal highlights, such as Valentine's Day 2014, when a small group of fans were invited into rehearsals; collaborations with fellow musicians such as The Black Keys, Eric Clapton, Florence Welch and Jeff Beck; and the band's various reunions with former Rolling Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. In addition to Ronnie's quotes, extended captions analyse each set list in depth, examining the significance of certain songs and their place within the Rolling Stones' history. Nearly 150 photographs and items of memorabilia provide additional context. Ready Set Go! Ready Set Go! is a signed book and print set, limited to only 425 copies. Presented in a cloth-bound slipcase, Ready Set Go! is quarter bound in royal blue leather with screen-printed covers, and finished with gilt page edging and hand tooling. The book is accompanied by a matching numbered and signed print, framed with a UV-protective glaze. The accompanying Giclée print (11 ¾" x 16 ½") is numbered and signed by Ronnie Wood. His vibrantly painted set list records a rehearsal in Los Angeles, 22nd September 2016, prior to the band's concerts that autumn. From 'Miss You' to 'She's A Rainbow', this list of important Stones hits and cover versions - see, for instance, Little Walter's 'Just Your Fool' - has been colourfully illustrated and includes a written reminder from Keith Richards: 'We stop on fishes' (referring to the closing lyrics of 'Blue and Lonesome').
