Coming on September 3rd is Ron Wood‘s Mr. Luck – A Tribute To Jimmy Reed: Live At The Royal Albert Hall. The live album — billed to the Ronnie Wood Band — features Wood’s longtime friend and the man he replaced in the Rolling Stones back in 1975 — guitarist Mick Taylor.
The show was recorded back in 2013 at London’s Royal Albert Hall and marks the second in a trilogy of live sets from Wood, following 2019’s Mad Lad: A Live Tribute To Chuck Berry.
Ron Wood told us that whether it’s the Faces or the Rolling Stones, British rock owes everything to Black American music: “We got inspired by American music, and we sold it back to them and they took it. You can ask Jeff Beck that and Jimmy Page that and Mick (Jagger) and Keith (Richards) — we were inspired by the American soul music, especially the blues, from Muddy Waters to Bobby Womack and, y’know, Rod Stewart started with Sam Cooke. He got inspired by him and it just goes down the line. We brought it back over here and it turned into rock n’ roll.”
