Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is engaged to marry Sally Humphreys, a 34-year-old theater producer.

Wood split from his second wife, Jo Wood, in 2008. A collection of memorabilia and artwork owned by the couple was recently auctioned off as part of their divorce settlement, which was finalized in 2011. Jo Wood's memoir, which will include tales about her marriage to the guitarist, is set to hit shelves next February.

The Stones recently played their first live show since 2007, a gig at La Trabendo in Paris to warm up for their upcoming 50th anniversary shows in London and Newark, New Jersey. Fan-shot footage from the Paris show recently surfaced as well, which you can check out here.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
