During the pandemic’s lockdown, rock stars have seen their 2020 tours postponed, as they try to keep fans entertained through social media. Early on, The Rolling Stones released their first new song in eight years, Living In A Ghost Town. And now Ronnie Wood has teased that more new music is on the way, as he expressed hopes for their 2021 tour.
When Sky News asked if it could be “a few years” before The Rolling Stones tour again, the 73-year-old said: “Please don’t say [it’ll be] a few years, I want to be out this time next year, for sure.
“We’re not holding our breath, otherwise we’d have collapsed.
“But we are happily carrying on day by day … chores, and enjoying our families.”
On new music for The Rolling Stones, Wood explained: “There’s some lovely music on the hob, you know, it’s on the back burner.”
The Rolling Stones star continued: “We’re bringing it towards the front of the hob now, but gradually.
“The thing is, we can’t all get together at the moment to do it, but I’ve been working on music.
“I’ve got a couple of albums ready to go as well.
“Everything is, you know, life is on hold.”
Last month, The Rolling Stones released an unheard 1974 track called Scarlet they recorded with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page.
On how the original recording came about, Page said: “There was an invite to do a session. It was with Keith.
“So I said, ‘I’ll tell you what, I’ll bring my guitar along and I’ll lay the solo parts on it.’
“It’s really great to have done it. It’s brilliant what Mick has done with it.”

The 76-year-old added: “But it’s also good to hear Jimmy Page flying as he was in the 1970s.”
Mick Jagger said: “I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie [Wood]’s basement studio. It was a great session.
“By finding these songs that haven’t been released, especially now at the moment – it’s good to do this kinda stuff.”
While Keith Richards reminisced: “My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session.”
He added: “They were just leaving, and we were booked in next.
“And I believe that Jimmy decided to stay. We weren’t actually cutting it as a track.
“It was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it.
“But it came out well — with a line-up like that, you know, we better use it.”
