Mick Taylor, Secret Affair. Skegness Rock and Blues 2010

Thanks Gripweed. Ed. I mixed you up with Lightnin' who also knows a lot about Taylor. But now it's clear. Stupid mistake of mine.

Well, my regards to our friend Taylor. Put the quotes of Behroez and Amsterdamned together and you get: The Stones need MT and MT needs the Stones. A veracity as a cow, as we say it here in Holland.

Great stuff! Many thanks for posting this Ed. Have you checked whether there is any more available from this show?

Steve, I asked the guy who emailed me the link if he recorded the whole show, he
hasn't responded yet...

I've found out that all he has is some stills.

Is Taylor planning a new album for release at the time of the Exile release?

Cool to see him rocking and that he's got some humor as well (ie. the end of this video).

The Skegness video shows Taylor playing the first song of the set on Sat Jan 30. This is the first gig he did after the end of the German/French tour 2009 which finished at the end of October.
I've mentioned this before on this board but MT doesn't do any practising at home between tours. I'm not saying that's a good thing, but it's reality.
Anyway, his own comment was that his playing on the first two songs in Skegness was "appalling". He mentioned that it was freezing cold on stage, so I bet that affected his fingers too. He knows what he's doing and he knows when he's on top of his game.

Obviously one of the first tunes of his set if not the first. You have to judge a player's playing after the first 4 tunes. This guy is still playing to incredible levels... this songs is not that good anyway. You can see Taylor struggling to find the tone and not very much into it.

When I saw him play last year in London, I noticed that his playing improved during the set. He seemed a little nervous with shaky hands at the start, but after a few tunes he was warmed up and played very well.


Can't watch the clip right now but looking forawrd to it...cheers

Well now that the Kat has left. Ronnie is doing a lot of things withe one hand. But Taylor can use his hands very well on his guitar. Thank you very much. Ronnie can't come close to that these days.

I am really sorry to note, but Taylor really comes across on that January 2010 vid as a guitarist who hasn't played in a long, long time. Every guitar player knows this feeling when you pick up a guitar after a couple of months not playing. You know how to play it, but the execution is just completely lagging behind. It then takes some days to gain speed and accuracy and precision.

Unfortunately Taylor comes across like this for the lost couple of years, and the fact that his set only comprises of the same lame songs over and over again since 1981 doesn't help either.

-Agree to some extent, and hopefully he will have the same progression on his new american tour as the Stones usually have (ie. the '72 tour which sounded pretty unrehearsed at the first shows, but really took off during the second half leg).

-I wouldn't say lame, but in good Stones tradition.
Anyway, every now and then Taylor seems to flash some of those wonderful classic licks that only he can do, and thats good enough for me nowadays.

That could be due the reason said in some of these threads (by Lightnin' I think?) that Taylor doesn't play at all at home (off the road that is). He just picks up the guitar when there is teh next gig available. Seemingly for people like Taylor and Keith and I guess Ronnie as well who have spend all their adult life and most of teen days as well with the guitar in their hands might not be so excited anymore in "practising". In one sense of the word they already know anything they need to know, and just getting better in no a real option any longer, and just to play for solely trying to be in shape it is just boring... It has its negative effects but I guess it is somehow understable. The true motivation and spark comes from performing or some other "real" action. I think tehre is the difference in perspective towards playing between these first-generation guitar gods and all the rest of "us" who may spend 24/7 in practising.... I have wittnessed very "rusty" Taylor myself in a concert. But there istill is the true excellence there to be lurking, júst behind the surface... I think one of the intersting traits in Taylor's playing is the way he challanges himself - kicking the Great Guitarist with Signature Sound out of himself. And how they say, the difference between the professionals and the amateurs is that the amateurs need to rehearse...grinning smiley

But over-all I share the feeling that Taylor is artistically semi-retired has-been player who is way too lazy to really challenge himself but is satisfied with small-scale career options, including the same boring set list every goddamn night. But it still doesn't change the fact that every night - no matter bad how it is - he comes guitarwise with something Keith and Ronnie probably couldn't even dream about.

Then he should stop performing. I mean, he is asking people money to see him perform, and you should take that seriously. No matter whether you play for 10 or 10000 people, when you ask money you should prepare and give your best.

What about Keith and Ron?
They should have stopped performing 20 years ago.
They never practice to my ears.

Well, listen to his playing and anyone can hear he's not taking it serious. He's not playing to deliver, he's practising on stage. And yes, he is serving his market, which unfortunately is made up of about 50 Stones fans gathered in a barn.
