Or at least that what’s being said so far. The auction will include “tour clothing, backstage passes and ephemera from various Rolling Stones tours, such as worn leather jackets and custom painted Fender Stratocasters, one depicting a Rolling Stones recording session, valued at $4,000 to $8,000,” according to Reuters.
But, as NME reports, the auction of Rolling Stones memorabilia, worth up to $500,000, has not been sanctioned by Ronnie Wood as previously reported, but rather the idea of Ronnie Wood’s ex-wife Jo Wood.
It was reported earlier today that Wood and his former spouse Jo, who separated in 2011 following allegations that Wood had an extra-marital affair with a waitress – were selling off their shared possessions, which included a wealth of Rolling Stones-related items.
However, a representative for Wood has released a statement insisting that he has nothing to do with the auction. “Ronnie was asked by Jo some time ago if he wished to add some items to an auction and he said he did not want to participate,” they said. “He is therefore shocked and disappointed that this auction is being misrepresented as a joint sale. This is not the case.”
