Rolling Stones To Tour In 2012 Says Ronnie Wood
22 Feb 2012
Ronnie Wood has sparked new hopes that The Rolling Stones could hit the road for their 50th band anniversary this year.
It was 50 years ago this year that a bunch of teenager in Dartford formed a R&B Blues band and would soon become the biggest band on the planet and knock about longer than anyone would have dared to imagine.
Live comeback rumours have been making the rounds almost on a weekly basis but you start paying attention when it comes straight from the horse’s mouth.
Rolling Stones guitarist, Ronnie Wood (64), hinted during an interview with the Radio Times that his legendary band would be “on the verge” of touring in 2012.
Ronnie Wood, who started his music career with the Jeff beck Group and The Faces, said the band would owe it to their fans.
“Be lovely, wouldn't it?” muses Wood and explains, “That's what we're on the verge of. I dunno what the hell is gonna happen yet but we all feel we owe it to ourselves and to the people to do something.”
Ronnie Wood joined The Rolling Stones in 1975, following the departure of Mick Taylor.
The Rolling Stones played their first ever gig in London on July 12th 1962 and have since become the longest serving professional rockband.
