Rolling Stones meeting in studio soon `to just throw some ideas around`
London: Ronnie Wood, lead guitarist for Rolling Stones, revealed that the band would be meeting later this month in a recording studio.
Wood said that he and the legendary rock group just want “to get the feel again”.
He also added that the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary was like training for something big.
“It’s like working out for the Olympics or something… You’ve got to go into training. So we’re going to go into training,” the Mirror quoted him as saying.
The 64-year-old made the comments in an interview following a press conference for his exhibition, Faces, Time and Places, which features his own paintings.
The guitarist, who said he first started painting at three, enjoys doing it because it is a reflection of his own ideas, unlike music, which he calls “a group effort”.
His week will get busier when he is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday as a member of The Faces, along with Rod Stewart. It will be the second induction for him as The Rolling Stones were inducted in 1989.
He will also perform a solo show at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on April 21.
Wood said that his fans should expect “lots of surprises” as he was going to “surprise myself”.
“I don’t know what the hell is coming next,” he said.
“The whole set list is going to be made up. I’m making it up every day now,” he added.
The exhibit will close on June 30.
