STONES TO ROLL INTO STUDIO THIS MONTH SEZ RONNIE WOOD

4/11/2012

Ronnie Wood has Rolling Stones fans atwitter over news of the group's imminent recording plans. Wood, who recently opened an art exhibition called "Faces, Time and Places" in New York City, told the British newspaper the Mirror that the group plans to hit the studio later this month to "just throw some ideas around" for a possible new album, the Stones first since "A Bigger Bang" in 2005. "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," Wood explained. "We're going to get together to have a rehearsal and see what happens." It will be the second Stones get-together in four months; the group gathered during December in London, adding former members Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman to the mix. The Stones begin the celebration of their 50th anniversary this July with the publication of the coffee table book "Rolling Stones 50." A documentary film is due out this fall, while a tour is planned for 2013, marking 50 years since drummer Charlie Watts came on board. Wood, meanwhile, is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for a second time on Saturday (April 14) -- this time as part of the Faces. He's also co-authored a new book about the group with bandmates Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan that's being published as both a limited edition and as a trade paperback by Britain's Genesis Publications. The "Faces, Times and Places" exhibit will run through June 30 at the Symbolic Collection, while Wood is promising "lots of surprises" for his solo show on April 21 at the Golden Nugget in New Jersey. Wood and Mick Taylor, meanwhile, have collaborated on a song that will be featured in the season finale of CBS' "CSI: Miami."
