The Rolling Stones won't be making a new record anytime soon.
Then again, at their age, it might not be their decision to make.
Singer Mick Jagger told USA Today that the Stones have given up on making a new record to go along with their summer tour, because fans don't want to hear new music live.
"It would be nice to have a new album, but people don't like the new album when you play it on stage," Jagger said. "They glumly look at you. 'OK, it will be over in a minute.' It's not a good excuse, but it's the truth and has to be said."
Guitarist Keith Richards said he hopes Jagger will change his mind once they finish their summer tour.
"The time to record a band is once they've been on the road a while so they're hot. We'll think about that while we're doing this (tour). The world needs more Stones records. So do I."
It's kind of hard to argue with his logic. The problem is they really don't make 'em like they used to.
The band kicks off the "50 & Counting" tour next month. It rolls into Oakland's Oracle Arena on May 5 and San Jose's HP Pavilion on May 8.
The Stones' last release was 2012 greatest hits album "GRRR!", which featured two new songs. Their last full studio album was 2005's "A Bigger Bang."
