Keith Richards On Releasing Collaborative Material With Jack White

    Back in 2009, Keith Richards and Jack White collaborated for some studio sessions. At the time, the Rolling Stones guitarist told Rolling Stone that the pair had worked together on “a couple of tracks.” Speaking recently, again to Rolling Stone, Richards has signalled that he is now open to the possibility of releasing this material. “I don’t know if [Jack] ever considered that it was actually, like, master cuts,” Richards said. “But at the same time if Jack wanted to do it, I’d probably say, ‘Yeah.'”

    Richards will meet the rest of the Stones in London this summer to discuss the possibility of recording new material to commemorate the band’s 50th anniversary. In the past, fans have often suggested that White could produce the Stones, in a similar fashion to his work with Loretta Lyn and Wanda Jackson. Concerning this suggestion, too, Richards didn’t rule anything out: “That’s always a possibility,” Richards said. “The door is wide open.” If this is true, then any 50th anniversary material that does make its way to the studio could offer White the opportunity to involve himself in the Stones’s production.
