Rolling Stone reports Keith Richards will meet up with Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts in a London studio.
"We're just going to play a little together, because we haven't played for three or four years," says Richards. "You don't necessarily want to rehearse or write anything – you just want to touch bases. That's a good start: me, Charlie and Ronnie. Mick's welcome, and I'm sure he'll turn up, but right now we just want to get our chops down."
Beyond that, the Stones' plans for their 50th anniversary next year remain unclear. "I just hope we can perform live," says Wood. "It'd be great to see if that old spark is there."
Also happening on the Stones’ front this month is the November 21 release of two “Some Girls” projects: a reissue of the 1978 album, complete with a bonus disc containing 12 tracks from the original sessions; and, "Some Girls Live in Texas 1978" on DVD and Blu-ray.
The Stones recently issued the first single from the Some Girls project, a song called “No Spare Parts.”
