Ronnie Wood’s Brother Dies

Ronnie Wood’s brother Art has sadly died after fighting a six-month battle with cancer aged 69.

The Rolling Stones’ world tour has been fraught with problems throughout the year.

Keith Richards suffered brain injuries after falling from a tree in Fiji and singer Mick Jagger had laryngitis forcing dates to be cancelled in Spain in July.

The tour previously scheduled to be taking place this month in the US is also temporarily on hold while Jagger’s throat condition improves.

Ronnie Wood has flown back to the UK to be with family at this sad time.

It is expected that he will rejoin the group soon.
