Stop Breaking Down Bass - Give It Up For Bill

I just want to say how cool it is when Bill Wyman starts playing that A-C-B riff after the second solo on Stop Breaking Down. It's totally weird from a bass perspective, yet totally cool. It would not have occurred to other bassists to come up with this run.

There. I said it.

yeah, but the important thing about bill, according to keith, is that he made weak tea...

I think he says it twice, in case you blinked the first time.

I got the impression that Keith and Mick wanted Bill to play a certain way and he'd just start playing what he thought sounded best. If that's true, thank god he stood up to those deaf turds and let them stick to songwriting and him to the bottom of the band.

I didn't blink, I passed out from all the pharmaceutical coke and heroin speedballs I was doing while reading "Life".

Let's cut out the crap, 71Tele, before I show you the blade.

Is that the same as having a sugar rush from too many choccy biccies and a warm mug of hot coccoa?

You know that only Freddie Sessler can get that stuff. Pure merck. Though he's dead now.

I have never noticed this - could you give me the start point in the running time?

He plays it a bunch of times when the band gets cooking after the second solo. It's a very unconventional riff for such a standard blues tune. It's little weirdnesses like this that I love about Bill's playing.

you're totally right - I never noticed that before. It IS odd for a 12 bar blues. But then again, with the exception of maybe McCartney (IMO), nobody had the off-handed, unconventional style of bass playing that Bill did.

That's one reason I have always gone easy on Darryl. I think any other bass player they replaced Bill with would have been about the same. There's only one Wyman.
