Wood released an album, Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry, in November 2019 with his side band, Ronnie Wood with His Wild Five, that honors one of his musical heroes.

The 11-track album was recorded live at Wimborne’s Tivoli Theatre in 2018, with guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters. The album includes performances of such Berry classics as “Little Queenie,” “Back in the USA,” and “Johnny B. Goode,” as well as a Wood original, “Tribute to Chuck Berry,” and “Worried Life Blues,” written by Maceo Merriweather. (See the complete track listing below.)

The album is the first in a trilogy to be recorded by Wood and the band in the coming years, each paying tribute to Wood’s musical heroes. He chose Berry for the first album as he has been a lifelong fan, has toured with him and also, to honor his passing in 2017.
