READY, SET GO!: THE ROLLING STONES SET LISTS
'I illustrate the band's set lists, sometimes Keith and Mick add little doodles, and they become works of art in their own right.' - Ronnie Wood. Why is this set one you have to have? If you are a Stones' fan, the Set Lists show you each song they played on given concert dates. As a piece of art? Ronnie Wood likes to decorate everything so this is another excuse to feed us collectors with everything he does. But it is a beautiful set. JJ.-------
In a beautiful signed limited edition of only 425 copies, Ronnie Wood has chosen more than 100 painted set lists to be published for the first time. Presented in chronological order, each year of set lists is introduced with a selection of photographs and Stones memorabilia, from A Bigger Bang in 2005 to the latest 2018 No Filter tour. The collection follows the group's travels to foreign rehearsal locations that were kept secret at the time. They reveal the songs rehearsed for historic performances, such as the Rolling Stones' 2014 inaugural concert in Israel, as well as documenting the shows as eventually played.
The colorful hand-lettering recalls Wood's early art school days when he worked as a sign writer. The set lists are visually eye catching and filled with fascinating details. Wood's calligraphy is interspersed with his own illustrations, doodles by fellow band members, and jotted notes that all add up to paint a picture of life on the road with the Rolling Stones.
Presented in a cloth-bound slipcase, Ready Set Go! is quarter bound in royal blue leather with screen-printed covers, and finished with gilt page edging and hand tooling.
The book is accompanied by a matching numbered (293 out of only 450)and signed print, framed with a UV-protective glaze. The accompanying Giclée print (11 ¾" x 16 ½") is numbered 293/450 and signed by Ronnie Wood. His vibrantly painted set list records a rehearsal in Los Angeles, 22nd September 2016, prior to the band's concerts that autumn. From 'Miss You' to 'She's A Rainbow', this list of important Stones hits and cover versions - see, for instance, Little Walter's 'Just Your Fool' - has been colorfully illustrated and includes a written reminder from Keith Richards: 'We stop on fishes' (referring to the closing lyrics of 'Blue and Lonesome').
