NEW YORK (AP) — Ronnie Wood says the Rolling Stones will meet in a recording studio later this month “to just throw some ideas around.”

The guitarist for the legendary rock group said Monday that he and the band just want “to get the feel again.”

He also added that the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary is like training for something big.

“It’s like working out for the Olympics or something,” Wood said. “You’ve got to go into training. So we’re going to go into training.”

Wood made the comments Monday in an interview following a press conference for his exhibition, “Faces, Time and Places,” which features his own paintings. It includes pieces of him and his band mates, as well as Muhammad Ali and Al Pacino.

Wood, who said he first started painting at age 3, enjoys doing it because it’s a reflection of his own ideas, unlike music, which he calls “a group effort.”

The exhibit launched Monday and will close June 30.
