London: ‘Rolling Stones’ member Keith Richards is keen on the band creating a new album.

The guitarist hopes frontman Mick Jagger will show interest too.

The group had released their last album ‘A Bigger Bang’ five years ago.

“I’m trying to find out when it will happen myself. I sent a note to Charlie Watts [the Stones drummer] saying, ‘Should I put an ad in a music magazine - guitar player for hire?’ I’ve got to do something,’” the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.

He added: “It doesn’t matter which band, you have got to have the frontman wanting to do it.

“You can’t shove the lead singer into it. I learned that many years ago. I usually wait for Mick to call me. When he does, it’s because he’s got an itch and wants to go to work.”
