The Rolling Stones are blessed with loving long and aging healthfully.

Ron Wood describes his bandmates. “Mick never stops moving. Charlie is a mischievous schoolboy, and Keith is a devious schoolboy.”

What’s the pecking order in the posh accommodations category?

Mick on the top bunk, then me, then Charlie.”

On the lucky-in-love front, Keith Richards, 64, will celebrate 25 years with wife Patti Hansen in December.

“There is no secret to it,” the father of two says. “It’s another love. It’s a matter of protection. Sometimes we fight, sometimes we don’t.”

Also, Ron, 61, has been married to wife Jo for – well, a long time.

What’s his magic potion?

“Remain friends,” the father of four says. “We’ve been together over 23, 27 years. I’ve got no idea. If you’re friends with someone, you can hang with them, you know?”

Since Ron says the Stones will never retire, these ladies are giving their husbands away to the road.


“We’re like the old blues boys,” Ron says. “I think we’re going to rock till we drop. I have an uncontrollable energy. I can’t stop. It’s so funny. I can’t sleep. I enjoy myself all the time.”
