Ronnie Wood has claimed that the spirit of the Rolling Stones exists in many modern bands.

The guitarist told ShortList that there are several groups who are carrying on the legacy of the band he joined in 1975.

Wood said: "The spirit still lives on in bands such as The Killers and Kings of Leon. There's a germ of it still there.

"I like listening to a lot of modern stuff, too. Regina Spektor is great. I can't wait to see what more she's capable of."

Asked if he and the rest of the Stones did impressions of their frontman Mick Jagger, Wood admitted: "Yeah, we all do, in our funny ways.

"In front of him, of course. There's nothing behind the back. Now, who does the best Mick? I think Charlie [Watts]."
