Rolling Stones guitar legend Ron Wood has been collaborating with Eddie Vedder, according to Billboard.com. At a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after-party Saturday night, producer Bob Rock confirmed that he had worked on a track for Wood’s forthcoming solo album More Good News that features the Pearl Jam frontman. Wood himself was quoted as saying that the collection “is gonna be great” (mind you, though my personal admiration for Woodie’s guitar-playing is pretty boundless, I also once recall him saying you could usually tell if a Stones album was bad if it featured an abundance of Wood writing credits). And the guitarist isn’t the only rock star who has sought assistance from a comparative whippersnapper for a solo album. Billboard.com also reports that Beach Boy Al Jardine’s new album Post Card From California will feature Neil Young, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Steve Miller, and Brian Wilson.
