Ron Wood Lights Up The Town

Ronnie Wood has sworn off the spirits - but the now clean and sober guitarist indulged in the holiday spirit Saturday in Claygate, UK, where the Rolling Stones member had the honor of turning on the town's holiday lights at a gathering of more than 3,000 of his neighbors.  Wood also joined actress Francoise Pascal to sing Christmas carols and autograph a Rugby jersey for charity. Speaking with the Elmbridge Guardian, Wood said the occasion was a nice way to get acquainted with people in the town he adopted as his home a couple of years ago, noting, '...there's quite a lot more of them than I thought there were.'  He says the vibe of the place suits him - ''s nice and quiet.  I'm up at Ruxley Towers and I can get peace and quiet up there and I can paint and just relax.' Now that he's made his address public, peace and quiet could get a little harder to come by.
