Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood to Tribute Jimmy Reed At Blues Fest

(Gibson) Ronnie Wood will pay tribute to Jimmy Reed during a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The concert, set for Nov. 1, will have Wood and his backing band performing as the finale for London's annual BluesFest.

"Jimmy Reed was one of the premier influences on The Rolling Stones and all the bands that love American blues from that era until the present day," Wood said in an official statement. "It is my honor to have the opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy with this tribute."

Wood is hardly a stranger to London's BluesFest. He performed at the festival last year, playing a tribute to the many musicians who appeared on the Chess Records label roster.

The 2013 London BluesFest, which begins on Oct. 29, will also offer performances from Van Morrison, Natalie Cole, Bobby Womack, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mick Hucknall and Robert Plant and his group Sensational Space Shifters. more on this story
