[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rod Stewart[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jeff Beck[/lastfm] got together just before Christmas and discussed working together, again. Stewart tells Rolling Stone, “He’s going up to record some tracks with his band [this month] in San Francisco and send them over to me, so we’re making progress.”
[photogallerylink id=20515 align=left]Arnold Stiefel, Stewart’s manager, said, “They have some really clever things planned — it’s mind-[blowing] stuff.” Stiefel says Stewart would write new songs for the album, his first with new material since 1998′s When We Were the New Boys.
Stewart fronted The Jeff Beck Group in the late ’60s. The two reunited in 1985 for a cover of Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready,” which they last performed together in 2009 during Beck’s show in Los Angeles.
