The Rolling Stones [electric guitar]( player Ronnie Wood has revealed he was "kidnapped" by his multimillionaire art pal and scooted away to rehab. Wood made the revelation on his hit radio show Absolute Radio Classic Rock, informing his listeners that contemporary artist Damien Hirst felt like he had to take drastic measures to save his friend's life. "I've blown millions of pounds on booze and drugs in the past, but Damien rescued me," he said. "He bundled me into the back of a bread van to avoid the paparazzi and then whisked me away on his private plane." He added that this signalled the beginning of his "life of recovery." Wood said: "I owe that man a lot." The Rolling Stones megastar has a long and potted history of alcohol and drug abuse, something his other bandmates have experienced themselves. He is now clean although his pal Mick Hucknall, who performs with Wood's band The Faces, said it wasn't easy for him: "Poor Ron wants to get out of it before we start talking rubbish. I think he is still sensitive to it being around but at the same time, I really feel he's not struggling anymore." It was reported this week that Wood's 29-year-old girlfriend Ana Araujo, a Brazilian model, could be lined up to star in the next James Bond movie.
