Released in 1979, Gimme Some Neck, is Ronnie Wood’s third solo album. Produced by Roy Thomas Baker and featuring a dazzling list of guest appearances from the likes of Dave Mason, Mick Fleetwood and Ronnie’s fellow Stones Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts. It would prove to be his best performance on the US charts to date, reaching number forty-five and remaining on the Billboard chart for for thirteen weeks.
All illustrations on the album artwork were drawn by Wood, including the self-portrait featured on the middle of the front cover.
Wood formed his super-group, the New Barbarians, in order to tour the United States in support of Gimme Some Neck. The Landover concert from this tour was recorded and released as Buried Alive: Live in Maryland in 2006.
