Keith Richards Invites Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor to Rolling Stones’ Rehearsal

Keith Richards has extended invitations to “everybody” for the Rolling Stones’ upcoming rehearsal session for what could become a 50th anniversary tour for the band. The quote comes from a Spinner interview where Richards confirmed that he had been playing with bandmates Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts in London. And when asked if there was a possibility that Mick Jagger would join the group for rehearsal, Richards had this to say:

“Of course. I mean, everybody’s welcome,” Richards told Spinner. “I was going to ask Bill Wyman to come by too. And Mick Taylor. The whole lot. They’re all Stones, you know? Why not?”

“Charlie and I are going to work together,” Richards said later. “Just go in and see if we can warm our chops up. And of course everyone else is welcome. Mick Taylor’s welcome. I don’t see why everybody who was a Stone shouldn’t be involved.”

But don’t start taking out loans for tickets just yet, because it seems like even Richards has his doubts about the reunion. Richards told Spinner: “I want to pull it off. That, at the moment, is my task.”

While this all seems to be in a very early phase, you can still look forward to the band’s Some Girls reissue, which is set for a Nov. 21 release.
