(ANI): If sources are to be believed, Rolling Stones bandmates
Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards friendship has become strained,
courtesy Wood"s turbulent personal life. While Wood, 62, who is
battling alcoholism, has been making headlines for his ill-fated
romance with 21-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova, Richards, 66, has opted
for a healthier life since suffering serious head injuries after
falling out of a tree in Fiji in 2006.
“Keith and Ronnie have obviously had some wild times together
over the years," the Daily Express quoted source as saying.
“But while Ronnie is still trying to behave like he"s in his 20s
or 30s, Keith opts for the quieter life these days as he knows he
has to take things a little easier. He and Ronnie certainly appear
to have drifted apart and Keith has no interest in going out on
all-night benders with him," the source added.
Frontman Mick Jagger, 66, is known to be concerned for Wood"s
welfare. While it"s been claimed he is prepared to axe Wood from a
forthcoming tour if he"s unable to straighten himself out, a
spokesman for Jagger told this column he had been “very supportive
of-Ronnie over the holidays".
