Keith Richards admits that the old Rolling Stones classics aren't as fresh to him now as they were during the band's heyday. During a recent interview with Absolute Radio, the rock icon revealed that he's been brushing up on the hits.
"When you kick off a song you say, 'I can't remember how the middle bit goes,' but the fingers remember even if you don't! I don't practice as much as I should, probably. But now that we're putting the act together again I'm getting the chops back together," he said of the band's pending reunion tour.
The band will soon celebrate their 50th anniversary with a tour but no official dates have been released. While speaking with the London Evening Standard Keith spoke on the timeframe:
"You will definitely be seeing us all together soon. It's been great fun being back together and there are a lot of memories in here. I can't believe it's been 50 years. We've been hanging out together, seeing quite a bit of each other and we want to do some gigs."
