The Rolling Stones have given up on plans to release an album to coincide with their summer tour because Mick Jagger says fans don't want to hear new music live.
The band's last release was 2012 greatest hits album "GRRR!," which featured two new songs, and their last studio album was 2005's "A Bigger Bang."
Jagger says the rockers have been toying with the idea of making another record, but he fears fans now only want to hear the band's classic hits.
He tells USA Today, "It would be nice to have a new album, but people don't like the new album when you play it onstage. They glumly look at you. 'OK, it will be over in a minute.' It's not a good excuse, but it's the truth and has to be said."
However, guitarist Keith Richards hopes the frontman will change his mind about a new record once the veteran musicians conclude their upcoming summer tour.
He says, "The time to record a band is once they've been on the road a while so they're hot. We'll think about that while we're doing this (tour). The world needs more Stones records. So do I."
The band kicks off the 50 & Counting tour in California next month.
It would be great if they came out on stage in a taxi, only to see it catch fire trapping them all inside burning alive.
Hey Keith..if Jagger wants to do his Sir Brenda sh*t....put the Winos together for some new stuff..
I'm game ! I'm sure Johnny would love to play on a couple tracks...he's been honing his chops all over the place...........
