Honestly GRNRBITW, I don't know why you're complaining, unless you think Doxa is going to overtake you in the word count.

His posts may be longer, but yours are more frequent...

ok...but just once...JUST ONCE i would like you to ask me for an opinion. remember that time i thought about bringing you some tissues? hmmm???

Fine, I'll let you know when I want your opinion...just don't nag me about it.

Just to be honest I was the poster formerly known as "Duane in Houston", but since I was having technical problems logging on here plus the fact that I haven't lived in Houston for about 6 years now ( I now live in Austin ) I'm going with the new moniker of "Bungo" for reasons that are to mundane to go in to. Peace, Out.

Do you ever hang out with StonesTod? Sometimes I really miss him around here.

Of course most of the time I could care less.

Can't say I've had the pleasure. But next time you see him give him a shout out to look me up. The bar's always open and I'm always buying.

You best back them words up Duane...

????? N-word please...

which bar, what time?

Are you calling me out? Are you close to Austin? Don't yank my chain or you might "get the blade".


I don't know....free beer and you've only been on IORR for 5 hours (remember you started over) ...sounds befuddling...Austin is a difficult 15 mile walk away...

I think we are all getting carried away with MT. Its great that he is playing with the band but someone posted above the Stones proved they are the greatest before MT took the stage last November.

Yes, that's true. But Taylor was a part (small, medium or large - your choice), of the proving process before he left and (for the moment), came back.

Its all there in Crossfire Hurricane...

Now we can say they were already great before he joined, but the same can be said for Ronnie.

Delusional.

Any one that honestly believes that Mick Taylor has "saved The Rolling Stones"
really can't even claim casual fan status.

The Rolling Stones(aka Jagger, keith, Ronnie and Charlie) didn't need "saving".
Good Lawd.

Has he added some fun and nostalgia to this tour??
Absolutely.

"Saved"??
Again.. delusional.

Part of it may be "nostalgia" - to "see" Mick Taylor on stage with the Stones again, but we should not lose sight of the fact, this tour is basically a "greatest hits revue". Any time you can put an original piece back onto one of the applicable songs, the listening experience is now one less step closer to being a "cover band" -- on those particular songs.

Mick Taylor has great chemistry with the Rolling Stones--it's that simple. They bring out the best of him. Chemistry is everything in relationships. MT is a guitar virtuoso who excels when he is in harmony and unity with this particular group of musicians. Ronnie has received him with open arms and Mick and Keith gave him accolades during and after CYHMK at Staples. It gave me chills to listen to his guitar solo slowly begin and then start to take off into another universe. For me, it was brilliant. The Stones took their concert into a golden level where it belongs. grinning smiley The saving is going both ways, here. MT is getting both the recognition he deserves and the money for his tremendous, God-given talent, and MJ and KR and RW were visibly enjoying what was unfolding on their stage. They were exchanging glances with wide eyes and jaws dropping and huge smiles! A beautiful sight! I loved it.

Best thing with Taylors playing with the boys again is that he seems to like it...really like it....

I think this may be more a case of mutual redemption. All parties are benefitting from this rekindled relationship bringing it all full circle. It's quite lovely.

This makes the most sense to me. And yes, it is quite lovely.

would be more correct if they send home the Wood Clown! the topic is rather more correct that Taylor is really "saving" the Stones Musically speaking ... in every song he plays is taylor dragging the band! if you can not see this then get the big clown ronnie ...... at the bottom are the stones that have invited Taylor and know the love of mick jagger for Taylor as it sounds ..........

Exactly, that's THE big difference with all the calibrated shows since...well pretty much forever, no, cause Taylor wasn't really unpredictable during his "first stint". Reading some comments here it seems going to a Stones felt "dangerous" back in the day (72 ?) but not for musical reasons, just the crowds.

These days the guy seems to have no fear (which is surprising considering what he's been through over the past 40 years, or maybe it's because of that...he's got nothing to lose really) but still respectful of the other guys, a unique balance.

Yeah, you probably expected Lady Jane, I Wanna Be Your Man, Factory Girl, Emotional Rescue, Little red Rooster/Tom Waits, The choir on YCAGWYW, Keith back on track and other things prior to the tour, right?

I'd certainly love to have your prediction abilities smiling smiley

Seriously, I can understand what you're saying, within a song - with Taylor on board. It's not like you know what will come next...

Many of the comments in this thread are thoughtful and reasonable, but the title is just plain insulting, imo.

The Stones were and are a great band with or without Mick Taylor.

But, perhaps the OP is just using some hyperbole for dramatic effect.

I think the Stones saved Mick Taylor.

So, your post is incorrect.

Yeah, good observation. Not only has Mick Taylor been thrust back into the lime light, he looks healthier, trimmer, and is playing well. I think no one needed to "save" the Rolling Stones, and this union has been great for both. But also, at the most he has played on four songs in a concert, and Ronnie continues to be their main lead guitarist. And he is doing quite well this tour.

Nothing like a little healthy competition to help kick up your game.

Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was
Send 10 dollars to the Church of the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Taylor,
Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio and all my dreams would come true...

Maybe some of you did?

You are 100% correct on your assessment. What is most surprising is how well ALL 3 of the boys (Taylor/Richards/Wood) are feeding off each other. Its only going to get better as the tour goes on!!!

I was blinded by the devil
Born already ruined
Stone-cold dead
As I stepped out of the womb
By His grace I have been touched
By His word I have been healed
By His hand I have been delivered
By His spirit I Have been sealed.

I've been saved

Mick Taylor is God!!!
