Keith Richards Talks Joint Recordings With Jack White

From Rolling Stone:

Keith Richards and Jack White have been friends for years, but in 2009 they collaborated professionally, spending time together in a recording studio. “I enjoy working with Jack,” Richards told Rolling Stone at the time. “We’ve done a couple of tracks.”

In a recent chat with RS, Richards addressed the possibility of the joint recordings being released one day. “I don’t know if [Jack] ever considered that it was actually, like, master cuts,” Richards now says. “But at the same time if Jack wanted to do it, I’d probably say, ‘Yeah.'”

“I know Jack pretty well,” adds Richards. “He’s a lovely player.”

Richards will travel to London for a Stones summit in July, where the band will discuss potential plans to record new material to mark their 50th anniversary. “We’re going to talk about that in July and see,” he said. “I mean, I’d love to get some tracks down and see what songs we’ve got. And that goes along with part of getting the band back together and getting things moving. So I’d love to cut some tracks, yeah.”

For years, fans have speculated about whether White will produce the Stones, working the same magic he did with Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson. “That’s always a possibility,” Richards says. “The door is wide open.”
