In fact, Ronnie thinks the legendary frontman is more capable than ever.
He said, "Oh, God, it's even harder for him to stop. It's like "Mick, come here, I want to talk to you" and it's like everywhere. It is really in good shape. "
It was three weeks before the North American Stones series began that Mick called classmates Ronnie, Keith Richards, 75, and Charlie Watts, 78 – in his hotel room in Miami. Visibly upset, he told them he needed an emergency surgery to solve his heart problem and was not fit for execution.
Despite the nightmare of resolving 17 concerts, there have never been any questions. They just wanted Mick to get better. The music could hold.
Ronnie said, "Mick knew from his doctors that one day he would have to take care of this problem with his heart – but he had no idea it would happen quickly. "He called us into his room and said," I have to do this now. "He felt so bad about it, We said," Do not feel bad if it's done, do it, then we can keep moving "And now we are really ready to jump – fortunately."

They also took the young children to Keith and the retirement of his wife Patti Hansen in Turks and Caicos, the Bahamas.

"From my sobriety, it's like having a second chance in life, seeing everything with clarity, gratitude. It's amazing. I feel so good. And to have these small blessings is the icing on the cake. "
These days, the post-concert races of the stones are far from the heights of the sixties and seventies that have risen from hell. they will have something bright to eat on the day of the concert – Mick and Charlie as fish and vegetables as he and Keith prefer the shepherd's pie.

"I'm still very happy, I do not think I miss something, I see it a little wiser, I'm tall enough and I'm grateful for that."

"Charly and Keith, they still refuse to go online, but they do not carry phones, and I can find Charlie on a landline and Keith through his wife if we have to talk, but something is , that we are so close to the road, we need a little room and we know that everyone is okay, the band is more communicative when Ronnie wants feedback about his impressive paintings. "Ronnie said," Charley liked it. "Keith said," I like the myths of Mick. "
He plans to release more art, and he is not likely to slow down, but it is a natural "mess."
The same goes for the other stones, although their career has lasted for six decades, no one is about to give up. "Mick bouncing off the operation only highlights their endurance Rony and Charlie have been fighting cancer and Keith has recovered from a serious head trauma
Ronnie said, "Someone there likes us, we just keep going and thank our lucky stars. Fortunately, they have left no scars to prevent us from progressing. This is the best thing ever with the stones.
"We are at the top of our health when playing together. Charlie, apparently adjusting when we start playing together, he physically looks and feels better, we all do it. We do not want to stop working. Everything is fine, there will be a new album and a new tour.
