Veteran rocker Ronnie Wood will reveal THE Rolling Stones' most guarded secrets in a new rock 'n' roll memoir due for release later this year (05).

The veteran guitarist will chronicle his early 1970s career with the FACES alongside Rod Stewart, as well as his time with the SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL stars, who he joined in 1975.

And despite his penchant for over-indulgence, Wood's favourite rock 'n' roll memories haven't faded over time.

The 58-year-old's literary agent EDDIE BELL says, "Ronnie actually has the most unbelievable memory.

"There will be quite a number of revelations in the book: it's a hell of a story he has to tell. The deal was signed confidentially earlier this year."
