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]."
