RONNIE Wood says the Rolling Stones will meet in a recording studio later this month "to just throw some ideas around".
The guitarist said that he and the band just wanted "to get the feel again".
He also added that the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary was like training for something big. "It's like working out for the Olympics or something," Wood said. "You've got to go into training. So we're going to go into training."
Wood made the comments in an interview following a press conference for his exhibition, Faces, Time And Places in New York, which features his own paintings.
It includes pieces of him and his bandmates, as well as Muhammad Ali and Al Pacino.
Wood (64), who said he first started painting at three, enjoys doing it because it is a reflection of his own ideas, unlike music, which he calls "a group effort". Wood's week will get busier when he is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday as a member of The Faces, along with Rod Stewart. It will be the second induction for Wood. The Rolling Stones were inducted in 1989.
He will also perform a solo show at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on April 21. When asked what fans should expect, he said: "Lots of surprises because I'm going to surprise myself. I don't know what the hell is coming next. The whole set list is going to be made up. I'm making it up every day now." Wood says he would love go on a solo tour "if I had enough time, but I have too many commitments".
He also talked about possibly recording another solo album.
"Lots of people don't know I've made seven, 'cause most of my albums escape; they're not released," he said, laughing. "Keith (Richards) says they all skyrocket to oblivion."
