Although it has essentially been confirmed that legendary rock band the Rolling Stones will not be hitting the road in 2012, Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood recently confirmed that the group is slated to meet in the recording studio later this month to “throw some ideas around” and are looking to simply “get the feel again”.

Should the sessions produce something more than that, it will be the Stones first album of new music since their 2005 release, ‘A Bigger Bang.’

Of course, fans of the Stones know that new music does not flow freely from the group. Prior to ‘A Bigger Bang,’ the group’s last studio effort had been 1997′s ‘Bridges To Babylon.’ To help fill the gap between studio releases though, the group has been replying upon live records such as 2008′s ‘Shine a Light’ and 1998′s ‘No Security.’ These releases are in addition to select shows that the band has been offering fans via their archival website.

Wood commented on the group’s intentions to enter the studio later this month in an interview following a press conference for his exhibition “Faces, Times and Places”, featuring paintings of his band mates, Muhammad Ali and Al Pacino among others. Wood’s exhibit is currently being housed at New York’s Symbolic Collection, 498 Broome Street at West Broadway and runs from now through June 30.

Later this week, Wood will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the second time as a part of the Faces. Wood first entered the Hall with the Rolling Stones in 1989.
