Taking Names: Ronnie Wood says Stones heading back to studio
Question of the Day
Ronnie Wood said the Rolling Stones will meet in a recording studio later this month “to just throw some ideas around.” The guitarist for the legendary rock group said Monday that he and the band just want “to get the feel again.”
He also added that the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary is like training for something big.
“It’s like working out for the Olympics or something,” Mr. Wood said. “You’ve got to go into training. So we’re going to go into training.”
Mr. Wood made the comments Monday in an Associated Press interview following a news conference for his exhibition, “Faces, Time and Places,” which features his paintings. It includes pieces of him and his band mates, as well as portraits of Muhammad Ali and Al Pacino.
Mr. Wood, who said he started painting at age 3, enjoys doing it because it’s a reflection of his own ideas, unlike music, which he calls a “group effort.”
The exhibit launched Monday in New York’s SoHo neighborhood and will close June 30.
Mr. Wood’s week will get busier when he is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday as a member of the Faces, along with Rod Stewart. It will be the second induction for the 64-year-old Mr. Wood. The Rolling Stones were inducted in 1989.
He’ll also perform a solo show at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, N.J., on April 21. When asked what fans should expect, he said: “Lots of surprises because I’m going to surprise myself. I don’t know what the hell is coming next. The whole set list is going to be made up. I’m making it up every day now.”
Mr. Wood said he would love go on a solo tour “if I had enough time, but I have too many commitments.”
He also talked about possibly recording another solo album.
“Lots of people don’t know I’ve made seven, ‘cause most of my albums escape; they’re not released,” he said, laughing. “Keith [Richards] says they all skyrocket to oblivion.”
Final jurors to be seated in Hudson murder trial
Prosecutors and attorneys for the man charged with murdering three of actress and singer Jennifer Hudson’s family members resumed vetting potential jurors Tuesday as they sought to fill the final four spots for his upcoming trial.
Lawyers filled 14 of the 18 jury spots Monday after interviewing candidates one by one, and were expected to settle on the group that will make up the 12 jurors and six alternates for William Balfour’s murder trial during Tuesday’s session, the Associated Press reports. Testimony is set to begin April 23.
Mr. Balfour, 30, is charged with murdering Ms. Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew in 2008, and he faces a mandatory life prison sentence if convicted of murdering at least two of the victims.
