Ronnie Wood may need a side of fries to go with that crow he’s eating.
The Rolling Stones’ guitarist had to apologize to the band after he was quoted saying the Stones are preparing to go back into the studio later this month, reports Billboard.
Wood, who was inducted for the second time into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his other band, The Faces, over the weekend, indicated that the legendary group would return to the studio "to just throw some ideas around" following a press conference for his "Faces, Time and Places" art exhibit last Monday.
The backlash from the Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger was apparently quick and furious.
"I heard from Jagger and he's going, 'What the hell?! We don't know anything yet!'” Wood told Billboard. “And I said, 'you know what [the media] are like. I just expressed my personal view; I would love to go into the studio.' Then they took it all wrong," he said.
An apology from Wood to the rest of the band, if it hasn’t happened already, is said to be forthcoming. "I didn't mean to say things out of line," Wood added.
But there are still some new projects coming soon from the Stones: a "Rolling Stones 50" coffee table book is due out this July, and a documentary on the group is expected to debut this fall.
"We do have a 50th anniversary," explained Wood. "Whatever is going to be done, we will know in the next few months."
