The Rolling Stones
guitarist Ronnie Wood
has been talking to WZLX
about the band's current tour.
According to the guitarist (via Classic Rock
), the shows that the band has played recently are amongst their best:
"We're having a ball the shows are the best we've ever done. It's a new lease of life. They've proved to be a kick in the pants for us. Not only can we do it we're better than ever."
Wood was also asked about the possibility of new Stones material, and responded by saying that it's simply a case of finding the time:
"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. Weve got the big wheels rolling now; weve just got to find the gaps to record."
In October of last year, the band released two new tracks, "Doom and Gloom
" and "One More Shot
," to coincide with the release of their greatest hits album "GRRR!
" Those songs were the first new material that the Stones had released since "A Bigger Bang
" in 2005.
