I had no idea who Paul Weller is. Still don't, really. He really is more of a European known star than an international one. At first I was hoping for more star power and then I heard Mick Taylor play and I thought, oh, that's quite enough.

Paul Weller is every bit as huge a star in the UK as Ronnie or Mick Hucknall in terms of the bands he was associated with, and far better known than any of last night's musicians as a solo artist.

Oh I'm not trying to disparage Mr. Weller. I simply didn't know who he was so I looked him up on Wikipedia. The Jam were barely known here in the States for one reason or another. I'm sort of fascinated with UK groups that are big there and don't quite translate here. When I watched my Small Faces DVD I only knew one of their records, Itchycoo Park.

That was a big record here in '68, but most people in the States would consider them a one-hit-wonder, because they didn't have another known song here. To be honest some of their songs seemed so English that they were practically baffling. Lane, Jones and McLagan got better much better known in the States as members of the Faces. And of course Steve Marriott got pretty huge with Humble Pie.

I see that the Jam had a lot of huge hits in the UK. I just listened to 'That's Entertainment' for the first time. I can understand where it wouldn't have caught on here in the novelty driven new wave My Sharona kind of mold. I'm still trying to come up with an American equivalent; a group or individual who was big here and was simply a dud trying to break into the UK market.

Do you also know the name of the second bass player?

Ian Jennings. Ben Waters mentioned him after The Troubadour warm-up.

"Had a good rehearsal with Ronnie Wood. Mick Taylor, Ian Jennings, Dave Green and Dexter Hercules, Ronnie's playing great harmonica as well as guitar, mick is on fine form!"

Exclusive - Ronnie Wood / Mick Taylor Jimmy Reed RAH warm-up gig review
Posted by: johnnythunders ()

It was the Troubadour in Earls Court tonight (thanks John).

Those of you going to the RAH on Friday are in for a treat.

How many times have you fantasised about seeing The Rolling Stones in a tiny club ? Well tonight I saw Ronnie W and Mick T in a club that held about 70 people, who sat round small tables so it felt like a wedding reception. And being so close that you could chat to the band before they went on and see everything played in detail - priceless.

The Troubadour has hosted everyone since it opened in the 60s - Dylan, Adele even J*k* Bugg. Even so, manager John said tonight was special.

Ronnie has put together an unususal band line-up (structure rather than personnel) and after three days of rehersals they are razor sharp. Ronnie plays a lot of harmonica which means Mick T is free to solo, and he does (unlike at Hammersmith last year). Powered by nothing stronger than espresso the Les Paul Sunburst and the White Strat get a good outing (the latter enabling some nifty slide).

I won't spoil the setlist. We got about an hour tonight but according to electric bassist Ian they are playing a 90 minute set on Friday with an extra 6 or 7 numbers featuring Special Guests. I thought tonight they played every Jimmy Reed tune I've ever heard so no idea what's tucked away for Friday.

Incidentally here are my rules for gaining entry to a private gig to which you have not been invited:

1. Dress sharp
2. Walk in like you deserve to be there
3. Order a beer
4. Only then ask to see the manager
5. Discover that Mick Taylor is happy to add you to his guest-list
6. Order another beer

Never saw any mention of it here so good on yer for having such a great night. smileys with beer

Great to see Ronnie and Mick together having a great time. Mick Taylor looking in great shape as well, he's certainly shed a fair few pounds.

Getting a bit confused because with the threads being joined, we've got people talking about 2 different shows. confused smiley

However, they both sound terrific--I hope they keep the momentum going!
