The guitarist explained that he, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts are planning to attend a London studio for the first time in four years, but that Mick Jagger is unlikely to join them.
"We're just going to play a little together, because we haven't played for three or four years," he told Rolling Stone.
"You don't necessarily want to rehearse or write anything - you just want to touch bases.
"That's a good start - me, Charlie and Ronnie. Mick's welcome, and I'm sure he'll turn up, but right now we just want to get our chops down."
Mick Jagger had previously said that the chances of a 50th anniversary tour in 2012 are unlikely.
The singer later said that if they were to reunite, people would be "sick" of the band by the end of 2012.
