London: Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood owes his musical excellence to his rivals The Beatles as he spend a lot of time listening to their riffs.
Wood has admitted that he picked up tips tuning into tuning into a live jam radio session by The Beatles in the 1960s.
The rocker then had just started his career with his first band The Birds, reports The Daily Express.
"They had their own radio show. They were like a bunch of kids let loose in the studio, shouting and hollering. I used to tune in every week and kop steal some riffs off them,” Wood said.
“When I was in my first band, we used to get inspired listening to their madness and the live tracks they would play,” the 62-year-old guitarist added.
