Ronnie Wood in rehab14/06/2006 - 17:19:48
The Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood has entered an alcohol rehabilitation clinic in London, putting the band's upcoming European tour in jeopardy once again.
The guitarist checked himself into celebrity treatment centre The Priory last night for the second time in just over a year.
He was last treated in April 2005 and succeeded in staying sober for much of the band's recent US tour.
However, he was spotted drinking heavily earlier this month at his 59th birthday celebrations.
Fans now fear he'll be unable to kick off tour dates in Spain on 11 July, despite reassurances from the rocker's spokesman.
He says: "Ronnie needs some rest but he will definitely be fit for the first night of the European tour."
The 'A Bigger Bang' tour has already been delayed by two months after Keith Richards fell out of a tree while on holiday in Fiji in April and suffered head injuries.
