With the Rolling Stones

Ronnie's first contribution to the Stones was his collaboration with Mick Jagger on the song 'It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It)' in 1973. Both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards contributed to his first solo album, 'I've Got My Own Album To Do' (1974). Ronnie went on to contribute to the 'Black And Blue' album sessions after Mick Taylor left the band and was declared an official member of the Stones in February 1976. However, he did not become a full beneficiary of the band's financial affairs until 1990.
