The Rolling Stones guitarist, Ronnie Wood has hinted that his band would be more than happy to work on a new album as long as they can 'find the gaps to record' it.

The legendary rockers have been busy rolling back the years on their 50 & Counting tour and will headline this year's Glastonbury, but Wood is keen to get the band back into the studio if they get the chance.

Speaking to Boston radio station WZLX, Wood said: "Well it takes so much time and effort to take this thing back on the road, [but] we've got the big wheels rolling now. We've just got to find the gaps to record."

The Stones will be performing two shows in London's Hyde Park on July 6 and 13 as they look to round-off their summer in style. Wood believes the group are actually 'better than ever' and is thoroughly enjoying touring again.

He added: "We're playing better than ever. The shows are the best we've ever done. These shows have proved to be a kick in the pants for us. Not only can we do it, we're better than ever."

The Rolling Stones could record new material if they can find the time

It has been reported recently that The Rolling Stones are in ongoing discussions with the BBC over plans to televise their Glastonbury headline performance, as the band are unhappy with plans to broadcast their set.

BBC head of music television Mark Cooper said: "We are having an ongoing discussion with the Stones. I'm talking to Mick about it. At this point I'm quite optimistic we'll get a sufficient amount of music.

"They are nervous about how much they should share. But when legendary artists play Glastonbury, they also attract a whole new, broader audience."
