Despite their legendary status, it’s hard to believe a word out of the giant lips of any of The Rolling Stones. Take, for instance, the possibility of the band touring in 2010; turns out, that’s not happening. Now, in an interview with Rolling Stone (via Gigwise), legendary guitarist Keith Richards is promising the band will record before the end of the year. Kind of.
“Theres no definite plans, but I cant see any of them stopping,” Richards said. I wouldnt be surprised if we did some recording later this year.
As for any plans for touring, Richards (who denied rumors that he had quit drinking; we’re so proud) was slightly less vague regarding their touring follow-up to 2007’s “Bigger Bang” world tour.
Maybe well search for a different way for the Stones to go back on the road, Richards said.Maybe not the football stadiums anymore. Maybe something different. You cant go around there in lemon-yellow tights forever. (Especially with all the chemicals I’m sure Richards still imbibes).
As always, more details when and if they’re announced. Plus, we also got that Exile In Main Street reissue to look forward to.
