Collectively, members of the [lastfm]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] are over two centuries old, but age is nothing but a number when passion and talent — and money for medical bills — ring true.
But despite all members being over the age of 60, their music rages on, in particular with one member whose solo album is scheduled to drop sometime this year.
So, which agin’ raisin rages on? Find out in 3…2…1….
With the Rolling Stones currently on break until their 50th anniversary tour in 2012, guitarist [lastfm]Ronnie Wood[/lastfm] announced he will release the album “I Feel Like Playing” later this year.
The album features guest performances from musicians [lastfm]Flea[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Slash[/lastfm], who Wood recently credited himself with teaching the guitar.
“I Feel Like Playing,” an appropriately titled album for a man his age, is the legendary guitarist’s first solo studio album since 2001’s “Not for Beginners.” His first solo studio album, “I’ve Got My Own Album To Do,” was released in 1974.
But this new album isn’t the only music project currently under the 63-year-old’s belt. He recently announced a reunion tour with [lastfm]Faces[/lastfm], the 1970s English rock band that he played with after [lastfm]The Jeff Beck Group[/lastfm], but prior to the Stones.
Wood has kept a tight lip on the album, saying it is coming soon, only offering fans a look at the album’s tracklist, listed below.
- Why’d You Wanna Do A Thing
I Gotta Go
Thing About You
How Am I Gonna Catch You
I Don’t Think So
Tell Me Something
The question remains: He can put out it, but will fans eat it up? Aging or not, the man is a legend, and with music contracts being slashed and burned during this economic downturn, there must be a reason they’re still letting him put out.
Will you buy Ronnie Wood’s upcoming album, or is it time for this British rocker to throw in the towel and call it a day?
