Ronnie Wood teaching Niall Horan to play guitar

THE ROLLING STONES legend RONNIE WOOD is giving NIALL HORAN lessons in rock 'n' roll by teaching the ONE DIRECTION star to play guitar.

Horan was given the chance to meet the musician backstage during the Stones' North American tour earlier this year (13) and they have since forged a friendship, with Wood even turning out for the premiere of the band's documentary film in London on Tuesday night (20Aug13).

The Irish pop star has now revealed Wood is passing on his guitar skills by giving him lessons - even though Horan has apparently been playing the instrument onstage at One Direction gigs for months.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "He's been teaching me how to play the guitar. He had this slider on his finger and showed me how to do it."

Wood has also been giving the 19 year old advice on how to deal with fame.

Horan adds, "He told us to enjoy the ride and have fun as you never know how long it's going to last."
