Keith Richards: 'I'll celebrate the Stones' 60th anniversary in a wheelchair' (BBC Nov 19, 2020)
Talk turns to the future of the Rolling Stones. Earlier this year, the band released a sparse, funky new single, Living In A Ghost Town, prompted by the initial stages of the lockdown
Their first new material in eight years, it was taken from sessions for a proposed studio album - but the pandemic has put those plans on ice.
"With The Stones really, they have to be in the same room to play," Richards explains. "I've been in touch with Mick and Ronnie [Wood] and I'm trying to figure out if we could pull a session together in the next few weeks - but it's all a bit of an experiment really."
Still, he writes all the time, keeping two or three guitars "lying around the house in strategic spots, in case I feel like grabbing one".
"Being a songwriter is one of those things," he says. "You can hear somebody say something in the kitchen and by the time you get to the living room, you've got a song going."
