With the Rolling Stones’ U.S. tour winding down (it comes to a close June 24 in Washington, D.C.), the question among fans is: Will this be the last time the band plays the states? The name of their tour –50 & Counting – doesn’t really shout “farewell tour.”

Guitarist Ron Wood — still the “new guy” in the band, though he joined in 1975 — recently called Boston classic rock station WZLX (a Radio.comstation) to chat a bit about his love of the city, recalling visiting Boston on tour when he was the bass player in the Jeff Beck Group.

As for the present, Wood says that the band has been in great shape on this tour.

“We’re playing better than ever,” he said. “The shows are the best we’ve ever done.”

For anyone who doubted that the 50-year-old band could cut it, Wood says, “These shows has proved to be a kick in the pants for us. Not only can we do it, we’re better than ever!”

Which leads to the inevitable question: With new songs “Gloom And Doom” and “One More Shot,” recorded for last year’s best-of collectionGRRR!, in the setlist every night, do they have any plans to hit the studio again for a full-length album?

“Well it takes so much time and effort to take this thing back on the road, [but] we’ve got the big wheels rolling now. We’ve just got to find the gaps to record.”

After the U.S. tour ends, they have three U.K. shows planned, so those gaps will be here sooner than later.
