Ronnie Wood plays guitar with The Faces circa 1975; Jimi Hendrix holds a copy of a seven-inch singles in 1967.

Ronnie Wood didn’t have to wait long to become a notable musician. Before joining The Rolling Stones, he was a teenage star in The Birds, who had some success in England, played a stolen bass in the Jeff Beck Group, and then switched to guitar in The Faces. But that progression might not have happened if Wood’s guitar playing hadn’t been inspired by Jimi Hendrix’s gift.

Ronnie Wood and Jimi Hendrix shared a flat in London

Wood’s commitment to The Faces and Hendrix’s career kept both guitarists busy. They hung out in the same circles outside of gigs, and they also shared a living space.
