Ron Wood’s feelings about the City of Angels has changed. Once a place that he would have never considered living, the Rolling Stones guitarist is reportedly thinking about making the move to L.A. after recording there with Rod Stewart for the new Faces album.
Having recently split from his wife of two decades in favor of a more youthful Russian temptress, Wood certainly has one less reason to remain in London, and is said to have favored the warmer climate in L.A.
Regarding his change of heart about the Los Angeles area, Wood told the U.K. tabloid, The Sun, that he “would never have dreamt of living there before because I never used to like the whole vibe of the place. But it’s much more mellow now and I could definitely see myself living there.”
Wood also reported that he and Stewart made a lot of progress on the new album and he will return to Los Angeles in two weeks to complete the project.
Although the U.K. tabloids may be sorry to see Wood leave London, it may provide the L.A. paparazzi with a new target to chase after. Although it’s certainly not unheard of, especially in L.A., photos of a 61-year-old rock star and his twenty-something lover out on the town just might help sell a few magazines.
