LONDON (AFP) - The Rolling Stones’ guitarist Ronnie Wood has married his girlfriend, a theatre producer 31 years his junior, newspapers said Saturday.
Wood, 65, married 34-year-old Sally Humphreys at London’s Dorchester Hotel, in a low-key ceremony late Friday attended by best man Rod Stewart, plus Paul McCartney.
“I’m feeling great,” The Sun quoted Wood as saying.
Pictures showed Humphreys in a white wedding dress with Wood dressed in a dark suit and tie with pink socks, a packet of cigarettes in his hand. “It was excellent, so great. Brilliant,” he said. The Daily Mirror quoted Humphreys as saying: “I’m really excited. And for anyone interested, I’m wearing my mum’s wedding dress.”
In its editorial, The Sun said: “The old rocker may need all his famous energy. At 34, his bride is half his age. Let’s hope she shows some sympathy for the old devil.”
