Washington (ANI): 'Rolling Stones" star Ronnie Wood has revealed
that he took to alcohol and drugs after his childhood sweetheart
died in a car accident, and the girl"s parents did not allow him to
attend her funeral. Ronnie writes in his forthcoming memoir that he
was just 17 years old when the tragic incident took place.
"Stephanie de Court was my childhood sweetheart. It was all very
innocent - talking, holding hands after school, the occasional
kiss," Contactmusic quoted him as writing in the book. "On May 31,
1964, Stephanie and some girlfriends were coming to see my band
play but were killed in a car crash on the way. Stephanie's parents
didn't want me at the funeral," he writes.
The rock star has revealed that he started drinking only to
forget the painful memories of his love.
"Some friends took me to the pub and got me drunk because it was
the only way I could accept the fact that she was gone from my life
forever. In the bottle I discovered a way not to think about it,"
he writes in the book.
