Speaking to the BBC's 6 Music at the Classic Rock Awards on Monday (Nov. 2) -- where Wood picked up an award for his contribution to rock -- the guitarist said relations between all the members of the veteran rock band are good.
He said, "It's all very good. I saw Mick [Jagger] and Charlie [Watts] last week. Everything is great."
When he wanted to return to live shows, Wood replied: "Yeah, well I just did that with The Faces, but I'm ready to rock." And as for the Stones back on tour in 2010? "Let's hope so, yeah."
Wood was given the music magazine's Outstanding Contribution award to honour his "ageless presence on the scene" and admitted it was the first time he had been given an award on his own merit.
"It means a lot," he said. "It's about time - I've never had one just for myself."
The Classic Rock Awards also presented AC/DC with Album of the Year for their latest LP 'Black Ice', and Iron Maiden with Band of the Year.
The pioneering metallers told the crowd at the London ceremony they were already beginning work on their new album – their 15th.
DVD/Film of the Year went to the documentary 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil' – with the Canadian band's frontman Steve "Lips" Kudlow saying there could possibly be a big-screen sequel.
"Everybody wants to know what the outcome is. I would say there is a very good chance there will be a follow-up to this," he told the BBC.
