Keith Getting Impatient With Jagger

Keith Richards says the long delay in getting another Rolling Stones album and tour together has him wondering whether it's time to offer his talents to someone else.  Richards said he had sent a message to Charlie Watts asking the drummer 'Should I put an ad in a music magazine - guitar player for hire?  I've got to do something.Keith says the timing of any Stones project is ultimately up to Mick Jagger, and says, 'You can't shove the lead singer into it. I learned that many years ago.'  Richards has filled time during the extended Stones layoff by preparing for the next Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, making appearances to promote his upcoming autobiography, Life, and working on the sequel to a release put out under the name Wingless Angels in 1997 that featured Jamaican singer Justin HindsRichards met Hinds during a visit to the Island in the early 70's, falling in love with the Rastafarian spirituals and chants Hinds performed with friends and neighbors - and enjoying the fact that they, in Keith's words, '...had no idea who the Rolling Stones were.  They didn't even give a shit.' In 2005, one year before Hinds died, Richards did some recording with him.  He plans to reissue the first album along with the new work on September 23 and turn the proceeds over to the Hinds family.  The Rolling Stones guitarist also collaborated with Sheryl Crow on a reggae flavored track on her album 100 Miles From Memphis.
