Keith Richards has been promoting his new autobiography recently and in an interview this past week, Richards dropped a pair of bombshells.
“Everybody’s ready to go out there again,” guitarist Keith Richards told BBC 6 Music. “Who said it should stop, and who said when? Only we will know when it comes to an end, with a crashing halt.”
Richards is referring to the Rolling Stones’ intention of heading back out on tour, despite their advanced age, in 2011. This comes as a surprise because the Stones were supposed to be retired from touring because of ill health.
But the news gets better for fans of the Rolling Stones. Richards also told BBC 6 Music that the band will soon begin working on new material as well.
“After these many years working together, we have a lot of unfinished stuff to work on that we had to leave off the last album,” Richards said. “And knowing Mick, as I do, he’s a very prolific writer. I have ideas [too] and we’ll put them together in December or January. We’re looking forward to working.”
