Ronnie Wood’s son Jamie ‘selling £1.5 million of Rolling Stones memorabilia’ (including a knife ‘pulled on Donald Trump’) to ‘disassociate himself from his dad’
Ronnie Wood’s son Jamie is reportedly selling some of his father’s Rolling Stones memorabilia, worth £1.5 million.
The father and son have suffered a troubled relationship over the years, with 45-year-old Jamie putting the items on the block at a three-day auction at Hessink’s in Holland.
Items include artwork featuring the members of the iconic rock band, including his 73-year-old father Ronnie and front man Mick Jagger.

The collection also apparently features a knife collection owned by Keith Richards, including a pocket blade he is said to have pulled on now-president Donald Trump in the 1989.
Trump promoted the British band in the states for their Steel Wheels tour, with Richards telling the BBC previously that ‘he was the promoter for us in Atlantic City. It was [billed as] Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones.
‘We never have much to do with promoters usually, but this one got me. That was the last time I got angry.

‘I pulled out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said, “You’ve got to get rid of this man!”‘
Another of the items in the sale is a rare Banksy painting titled Bird With Grenade. Its starting price is £200,000 but is thought to be sold for a much higher figure.
Also featured are costumes, photographs and videos – some never seen before. These feature the band performing on stage. Others are home videos.
MailOnline has approached reps for comment.
A source told The Sun: ‘Getting rid of everything associated with his dad and the Stones is a symbolic sign that he’s stepping away from it all.’
Bradley Hessink, of Dutch auctioneers Hessink’s, said there was ‘huge interest’ in the memorabilia.
