Ronnie Wood and the guitarist he replaced in are set to take the stage at London's 100 Club in December as part of a benefit to save the fabled venue, according to new reports. Wood and Mick Taylor are secretly planning to team up at the December 1 charity show, which organizers hope will raise vital funds to keep the club open into 2011.

Rent rises in London have crippled the club's bosses in recent months and owner Jeff Horton has threatened to close the 100 Club at Christmas unless he gets aid to help him with the spiraling costs. Former star Mick Jones is also expected to join the benefit line up - he recently offered to help anyone spearheading a campaign to save the venue.

He recently told Spinner.com, "I'm sorry to hear it might be closing. It will be greatly missed if it closes. Someone should start a campaign to save it. If someone's going to do something and I'm available then I'd love to help."
