    In an admission that will probably surprise no one, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards said that death will be the only thing to put a stop to the band.

    In a new interview with Radio Times (via NME), the 72-year-old Richards said the Stones will stick around until they die. “They’re not really bands if they don’t last, they’re groups,” he said. “We’re a band and a real band sticks until it dies. These bands, they become big, but they’re generational, just for their one decade. They literally go when their testosterone goes.”

    Richards also noted in the interview that he thinks the Rolling Stones will still release some of the best music of their long career. Their last studio album, A Bigger Bang, arrived in 2005. The band is supposedly working on a new LP, a blues record that may or may not arrive this year and may nor may not feature a guest spot from Eric Clapton.

    “We work hard, and no one takes it for granted,” Richards told Radio Times. “We’re still looking to make our best record and put on our best show. The Stones have managed to be part of life, without becoming passe. Also, what else are you going to do? You never grow up, you just learn a little more. I ain’t getting old, I’m evolving.”

    Richards also took time to take another shot at the Rolling Stones’ old rivals the Beatles, claiming that “they were never quite there” as a live band.

    The interview is part of Richards’ promotional push for the upcoming documentary Keith Richards: The Origin of the Species. Meanwhile, his bandmate Mick Jagger has a new project of his own on the way: a child with his 29-year-old girlfriend.

    I agree 100%



    As long as their health holds up, there is no reason they should quit entertaining people.

    I agree as well. I seen the Stones last year & they were phenomenal. I look forward to a new album(especially a blues album). I encourage anyone to keep going. Chuck Berry is 89 & still playing. He may not sound like he once did but he's still enjoying playing. Mick may look pretty old but he still moves great & uses that whole stage. Keith & Woody still work great together. I also have to say Keith's last solo album is my favorite out of all of his solo albums

    From memory when Bill Wyman was leaving the Stones back in 1993 Keith told Bill "Nobody leaves this band unless it's in a wooden box!."
