Rolling Stones To Start Recording Again

The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood has revealed that the band will start recording new material this month.

In recent interviews, the guitarist said he and his bandmates would be hitting the studio to "throw some ideas around" in preparation for their 50th anniversary celebrations.

Wood said that the band were eager "to get the feel again", and that "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".

It was back in 1962 when the Rolling Stones played their first ever gig in London on July the 12th. To celebrate their half-century landmark, the band had been expected to embark on a world tour later this year, but last month (March 14th) the band revealed that they would be delaying the celebrations until 2013.

Keith Richards has always insisted that playing in 2013 would be a more fitting half-centenary anniversary:

"The Stones always considered '63 to be 50 years, because Charlie [Watts, drummer] didn't actually join until January. We look upon 2012 as sort of the year of conception, but the birth is next year."
