When Keith Richards says the Rolling Stones are going to tour again, there's probably a good chance he's telling the truth. That is, of course, unless he said something completely different but nobody could understand him.
As BBC Music 6 reports, the guitarist says the band is prepared to head out on the road in 2011, refuting earlier speculation that they were retiring from the road. "Everybody's ready to go out there again. Who said it should stop, and who said when?" Richards said. "Only we will know when it comes to an end, with a crashing halt."
Richards also revealed that the band is planning to hit the studio to follow up 2005's 'A Bigger Bang' LP. "After these many years working together, we have a lot of unfinished stuff to work on that we had to leave off the last album," he said. "And knowing Mick [Jagger], as I do, he's a very prolific writer. I have ideas [too] and we'll put them together in December or January. We're looking forward to working."
In other Richards news, the 66-year-old recently released his candid autobiography, 'Life,' via Little Brown. Last weekend, he discussed the book and his relationship with Jagger, Bob Dylan and the Beatles at the New York Public Library, which you can read about here.
