Fans of the Rolling Stones have a reason to (cautiously) smile this morning—the 50 year old band is looking to regroup in London later this month and play live for the first time in years. The catch? It’s not going to be a concert, but simply a private jam session for the band only.

Now, with the future of The Rolling Stones still unclear, Spinner is reporting that the legendary rocker isn’t about to take a rest. Word is he’s got a new solo album in the works.

The big news in England over the weekend came courtesy of the always wildly accurate United Kingdom newspaper the Sun: that the Rolling Stones, once the World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band, will be retiring in 2012 following a massive 2011 world tour. 2012 would mark the long-running band’s 50th anniversary, and would provide the band with a fitting end, seeing as they haven’t released a relevant album since 1981.
