According to Chuck Leavell, the rehearsals in Paris lately included new material! He got an email from Mick on July 24 calling him to Paris for some work. Then last week, he added his playing on two new songs. He described those numbers as "up-tempo" Jagger/Richards rockers. On one Ronnie added slide guitar. Chuck said: "Great hooks. Great energy. Bare bones." - That's promising! See the Wall Street Journal for more.
