Wood talks new material in interview.

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.

    I really enjoyed Bigger Bang and the new songs-Doom and Gloom and One more shot. I hope they do a new album and invite Mick Taylor to work on it with them.
    I just hope they would consider Jack White for the album production, as Richards said a few years ago...
    Saw them live in Boston, they were unreal! They even waved at me when they were driving into the arena!
