If Keith Richards has his way, the Rolling Stones will start working on a new record next year. "I'm trying to gather the boys together," he tells Rolling Stone. "One way or another, I'll get them back in line." In the meantime, the guitarist recently recorded songs with Jack White. "I enjoy working with Jack," Richards says. "We've done a couple of tracks."
Might White produce the Stones record? "I couldn't fuel that rumor any more than to say Jack and I are in touch," says Richards. Meanwhile, Mick Jagger and Richards are sorting through outtakes from 1972's Exile on Main Street for a forthcoming deluxe edition of the LP. "There's new songs on there, stuff we've forgotten about," Richards says. "Mick and I were looking at each other like, 'Ah, did we do that?' " (Look back at the making of Exile.)
Finally, Keith is still working on his long-awaited autobiography. "I'm working on it with James Fox," he says. "I'm trying to remember things, which is very difficult."
