Ron Wood born on same day as Marilyn Monroe..

Ronald David "Ronnie" Wood (born 1 June 1947 in Hillingdon, London) is an English rock guitarist and bassist best known as a member of The Rolling Stones, Faces and The Jeff Beck Group. Artwork
Wood is an accomplished artist. When he was a child his drawings were featured on the BBC television programme Sketch Club; he won one of that programme's competitions, an achievement he refers to as his "awakening to art".[25] He went on to train at the Ealing Art College, as both his brothers had.

Wood's paintings, drawings and prints frequently feature icons of popular culture and have been exhibited all over the world. Several of his paintings, including a work commissioned by Andrew Lloyd-Webber, are displayed at London's Drury Lane Theatre.[26] Art critic Brian Sewell has called Wood "an accomplished and respectable artist";[27] and the South Bank Show has devoted an entire programme to his artwork.[28] Wood is also the co-owner (along with sons Jamie and Tyrone) of a London art gallery called Scream.[29] Robert Roche
