Ron Wood On The Rolling Stones’ Future: ‘We’ve Just Got To Find The Gaps To Record’

With the Rolling Stones’ U.S. tour winding down (it comes to a close June 24 in Washington, D.C.), the question among fans is: Will this be the last time the band plays the states? The name of their tour – 50 & Counting – doesn’t really shout “farewell tour.”

Guitarist Ron Wood — still the “new guy” in the band, though he joined in 1975 — recently called Boston classic rock station WZLX (a station) to chat with DJ Chuck Nowlin a bit about his love of the city, recalling visiting Boston on tour when he was the bass player in the Jeff Beck Group, and chatting with WZLX DJ Peter Wolf (of the J. Geils Band).

As for the present, Wood says that the band has been in great shape on this tour.

“We’re playing better than ever,” he said. “The shows are the best we’ve ever done.”
