Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, who has just entered rehab in an attempt to conquer his troubles with alcohol, admits in a new interview that he "sometimes goes off the rails."
The rocker, 61, reveals that when his band is not touring, he gets bored – and then is tempted to drink. "I'm more lost when I'm not on tour. I'm in a bit of a muddle at nine o'clock – 'Where's the stage?'" he said in an interview in Saturday's Financial Times. "On tour there are people directing and supervising you ... sometimes I get so bored I think I'll have a drink. I don't mean any harm but I just go off the rails."
