Présentation de l'éditeur

When young model and mother Jo met rock star Ronnie Wood, she had no idea what her brief flirtation with this brilliant, charismatic musician would become. This is a moving and candid memoir from the woman who married the most controversial member of the Rolling Stones, and had the strength and courage to bounce back from heartbreak.

A raw and rollicking narrative from the eye of the storm, Jo’s extraordinary story of life as a Rolling Stone girlfriend, then wife, mother and more, is a never-before-heard account of the heady hedonistic Ronnie Wood years – the drugs, the roadies, the tours, and the booze – and a celebration of her new-found happiness as an entrepreneur, fashion icon and beauty expert.

Following the public breakdown of her marriage, Jo moved on with a dignity and lack of bitterness that won her fans across the country. Now a successful businesswoman, a passionate campaigner of pure, organic living, and a thriving name in fashion, Jo has learnt to embrace her new found vitality, and in doing so has become the heroine of everyone from 20-something fashionistas to Strictly Come Dancing devotees.

This is Jo’s journey, from the breathtaking highs of her and Ronnie’s shared infatuation and love, to the devastating lows of his sudden disappearances, drug-induced mania and seizures, and how she learned to walk away without regret or bitterness, and forgive.

Published in hardback as ‘Hey Jo’.

This book was so special because it at once shocks and surprises whilst still developing a strong empathy and love of the authoress herself. although she was involved in the whole rock and roll lifestyle herself, you cannot help but relate to her in some ways - as a mother, a very kind person, a friend. A thoroughly evocative book ... for a while you feel you are living the Stones' lifestyle for yourself!

HASH(0x9baa2f9c) étoiles sur 5 You'll want to give these people a dope slap. 12 juillet 2013
Par Judith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Keith Richards once punched out Ron Wood for being too high at a concert to perform right. He would yell at Wood for free-basing and drinking too much. If Keith Richards thinks your drug use and drinking are out of control, you know you really, really have a problem. I had to wonder why in the world Jo Wood put up with Ron Wood's drugs, drinking, infidelity, temper tantrums, verbal abuse, and emotional coldness for so many years. She'd probably still be with him if he hadn't dumped her for a woman less than a third of his age.
Still, as a wise reviewer here on Amazon once pointed out, a review of a biography ought to be about how good the book is, not on whether or not the reader approves of the choices the subject made or the way s/he lived his/her life. That's why I'm giving this book five stars. It was a good read. I normally alternate between reading several books at one time, but this book was so good that I found myself ignoring the other books on my Kindle.
There were certainly things that bothered me about the book. One is a picture of 15 year old Jo strutting in front a line of leering soldiers. Another was Jo offering drugs to her kids because she thought it was best to learn about these things at home. I was also bothered by the way Jo put drinking and drugging with Ronnie over her kids welfare because she thought--no doubt correctly--that he might dump her if she didn't party with him. She claims she was always a good mother, but how can that be when one is locked in the bathroom free basing or crashing until four in the afternoon. Thanks goodness they had a good nanny.
I didn't have a strong opinion about Ron Wood when I started reading this book. To me, the Stones are all about Jagger and Richards. By the end of the book, I really disliked Wood. Apart from the substance abuse, he was self-absorbed, short tempered, and cold. Jo couldn't even trust to leave him in charge of his own children while she went out because of his very bad temper. In the end 62 year old Ronnie left Jo for a teenager. Well, Jo finally grew up and matured, while Ronnie never did.
This book is a little like watching a train wreck in progress--but a very interesting train wreck.

HASH(0x9bdd3204) étoiles sur 5 Great read! The sort of juicy rock tell-all I couldn't put down! 17 novembre 2013
Par April Goodwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I am a biography junkie and this was one helluva fix! I thoroughly enjoyed living vicariously the life of A-list rock and rollers. It helped that Jo seems like a wonderful person who really loved Ron Wood. The fact that he did her the way he did is hard to swallow. He must be out of his mind.

A minor quibble: I would have liked Jo to be more forthcoming in explaining why she chose to be with Ronnie in the early days versus taking care of her young child. A little reflection. Throughout the book I said to myself: "She must be a Pisces." And when she revealed her birthday at one point, I smiled in recognition that she allowed herself to put him above even her own first-born. The really baffling aspect of it is that she is obviously a very warmhearted, loving lady and it does't gibe with that behavior. The only thing I can figure is that she was a teen mom and didn't want to stop partying down!

Jo's heart shines through on every page and this does not read as a bitter, "women scorned" type of book. She handled the unthinkable in a graceful, spiritual way and showed her true colors, just as Mister Rockstar showed his.

HASH(0x9bdd3444) étoiles sur 5 A fun and gossipy look inside The Rolling Stones' protective bubble 7 avril 2014
Par The Booker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Unlike some rock biographies that only hint at or gloss over past bad behavior and dirty deeds, Jo Wood names the names and what was going on where and when. My first thought was that Ronnie Wood (with a hefty contribution from Keith Richards) would have to fight this one and offer his ex a big bucks payoff to keep it off the market. But then I realized when it comes to The Rolling Stones, there really is no such thing as bad publicity. Part of the allure is their five decades long image as carousing, drinking and drugging bad boys - and this book simply adds to the legend.

As a reviewer, I should only stick with the writing of the book itself, which is actually quite good. It was fun to read and I had a hard time putting it down, simply because each episode of Jo and Ronnie's life together seemed more unbelievable than what had happened before. There were many anticipated "page-turners" and the author kept it moving at a lively pace. I thought the story bogged down a bit when she detailed her business ventures, which came off to me as advertisements for her products. But on the other hand, that's who Jo Wood is as an entrepreneur and this is her story.

There were numerous questionable opinions throughout, such as Jo's continued declaration of being a good mother to her children while spending years in the bathroom free-basing with Ronnie and partying non-stop for days without sleep on Stones' tours. She gives credit to her family and nannies for their assistance, but her message reads loud and clear that she was not simply a dedicated party girl, but would do almost anything and put up with just about everything to hang onto Ronnie Wood.

And speaking of Ronnie Wood, whose name and reputation as a Rolling Stone is really the main incentive for reading this book; he comes off as a self-centered alcoholic and drug addict starved for attention. His only saving grace is a carefree and "anything for a laugh" personality in pubs, parties and on tour, with enough talent as a musician to compliment Keith Richards as the second guitarist in the Stones. Out of the spotlight he could be moody and mean, and continued a string of affairs with celebrities, groupies and "drinking buddies" who never seemed to age as he grew old enough to be his latest conquest's grandfather. One cutting moment was when he looked at Jo the day after her fiftieth birthday and declared he never thought he would ever be married to someone that old. But instead of being a testament to their life together, he meant it as a statement about how his mind works.

This is a fun and gossipy look inside The Rolling Stones protective bubble. It may read as a fantasy for those of us on the outside, but it was everyday life for the inner circle. If you're a fan, this is a welcome addition to your Stones library. I would give it four and a half stars if Amazon allowed the rating.

This was an excellent account of life in the fast lane. I could scarcely put this book down it was so good! It is a very well written and candid biography of Jo Wood's life up to and encluding her thirty years of life with Ronnie Wood. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a peek into how the rich and famous live,love,and party.Drugs were very much a part of it all,but I doubt that will be a surprise to anyone.Definately worth the purchase.

HASH(0x9bdd34bc) étoiles sur 5 Read Patty Boyd's book instead 15 mars 2015
Par Marcy K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Having read Patty Boyd and Chris O'Dell's autobiographies and "I'm With The Band" I figured this would be just as enjoyable. I was mistaken. It is not that well written and I'm amazed at how bad she came off. Jo is definitely a survivor and is lucky to be alive, but her choices in life are astonishing. Nothing seems to be bad to her. Seeing the sun through the side of your boyfriend's nose is no biggie. Dumping your child at your parents for years with only occasional visits is OK. Giving your kids drugs so you know what they are doing is a good thing. Crazy drug use and making drugs in your bathroom for years is no big deal to tell the world. Risking serious imprisonment several times is just a walk in the park. Bad behavior after bad behavior of your husband, who is a first class jerk, and most of the people you call your friends is just a normal part of life. I feel sad for her really. If anything this story is an honest account of how awful the life of Rock and Roll girlfriend can be even if you are telling yourself you enjoy it.
