Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, and while the band’s 50 and Counting tour is still going strong, guitarist Ron Wood is already hinting at what the gents will be up to following the trek.

Chatting with WZLX , Wood stated that the tour has rekindled the fire in the Stones, and he hopes the guys find the time to record new music soon.

“We’re having a ball,” Wood told the station. “The shows are the best we’ve ever done. It’s a new lease on life. They’ve proved to be a kick in the pants for us. Not only can we do it — we’re better than ever.”

He added, “It takes so much time and effort to take this thing back on the road. We test ourselves in stages and this is the latest surge of energy. We’ve got the big wheels rolling now; we’ve just got to find the gaps to record.”

The Stones’ latest full-length, A Bigger Bang, dropped in September of 2005.
