Is a new Rolling Stones studio album in the cards for 2014???
Both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards spoke to Classic Rock magazine about the band's recording work 50 years on. Richards explained that last year's sessions for "Doom And Gloom" and "One More Shot" for the GRRR! compilation surprised the band, who came in cold, but still played at the top of its game: "We banged them out in Paris. I don't think the Stones have ever cut a track so fast. It was like three takes and boom! We were looking at each other and going: 'Got anything else?'"
I thought "Doom and Gloom" and "One More Shot" were pretty good tracks from a band that has all but exhausted the songwriting opportunities of three cord rock jams. If those tunes are any example of what Mick and Keith can come up with for another record, I say BRING IT ON!
