Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards Okay With Jack White Releasing Collaboration
A few years ago, rock and roll’s present and past met up in the studio for a few jam sessions. Jack White and Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards recorded material in 2009, but it has yet to be officially released. The legendary guitarist has gone on the record to say White would have his blessing to put out the recordings.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Richards said he’s unsure of what the former White Stripes frontman’s intentions are for their collaboration. ”I don’t know if [Jack] ever considered that it was actually, like, master cuts,” Richards said. “But at the same time if Jack wanted to do it, I’d probably say, ‘Yeah.’” The Stones guitar slinger adds, “I know Jack pretty well, he’s a lovely player.”
Fans have wondered for years about whether or not White would produce a Rolling Stones album. He’s had a successful run working magic with country legends Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson – the former winning two Grammys in 2005 as a result of Lynn’s partnership with White.
Richards said it’s not out of the question for the Raconteurs member to do the same for the Stones. ”That’s always a possibility,” Richards simply says. “The door is wide open.”
