Rolling Stone Wood weds for third time
The Rolling Stones' guitarist Ronnie Wood has married his girlfriend of eight months, a theatre producer 31 years his junior, newspapers said Saturday.
Wood, 65, married 34-year-old Sally Humphreys at London's Dorchester Hotel, in a low-key ceremony Friday attended by best man Rod Stewart, plus Paul McCartney.
"I'm feeling great," The Sun quoted Wood as saying.
Pictures showed Humphreys in a white wedding dress with Wood dressed in a dark suit and tie with pink socks, a packet of cigarettes in his hand.
"It was excellent, so great. Brilliant," he said.
The Daily Mirror quoted Humphreys as saying: "I'm really excited. And for anyone interested, I'm wearing my mum's wedding dress."
In its editorial, The Sun said: "The old rocker may need all his famous energy. At 34, his bride is half his age. Let's hope she shows some sympathy for the old devil."
Wood, who has played with the Stones since 1975 and has publicly battled against drug and alcohol addiction, left his second wife Jo in 2008 for a 21-year-old former cocktail waitress, Ekaterina Ivanova.
His divorce from Jo, his wife for more than 20 years and the mother of two of his children, was finalised last year.
He had previously been married to Krissy Findlay, with whom he had a son, from 1971 to 1978.
Jo Wood's memoirs, due to be released in February, are set to shed light on her life as a Rolling Stone's spouse.
The band are celebrating a half-century in rock and roll this year and have played celebratory concerts in London and New York.
