Still on a sorta high from that evening: really pleased that Ronald could show what he is capable of and so good to see and hear him and Michael Taylor up there and both playing like they meant it.
Bizarro recall time: during an early part of the evening between songs, Salman Rushdie walked down the arena stairs RHS right in front of me. No, no 'Their Satanic Verses Request' gags were forthcoming...
Please DO NOT hijack this thread into talking OFF TOPIC about anything else YOU want special attention to. This thread is about the RONNIE WOOD London events only!!!
What a great performer Ronnie Wood is. When he is in charge, I am deeply impressed by how cool and how relaxed and sharp Ronnie is. He is not the nervous band leader who needs to prove anything. He is in complete control, still relaxed, small talking, talented, friendly and at the same time paying attention to anything happening both on stage and in the crowd. One again, I am impressed. Thank you Ronnie. You made a hell of a show and once again you proved you are my hero among the others in the top league.
Mick Taylor was another highlight of this show. he never treid or needed to be brilliant or dominating anything. He was ther right next to and always close to Ronnie. I am evenly impressed by the professioality of Mick T. Thanks for adding your great licks and friendship to this show!
I am looking forward to 2014. The friendship and musical collaboration of Ronnie and Mick T is obvious. We will get to see more of them with the Stones in 2014. How lucky we are to have then both in our band - together!
And thanks for all the great photos!!! I was nailed to my seat through out the show, did not bring a PC, did not bring a camera, just wanted to enjoy, and sure I did!
Hope you're right there BV, I expressed this particular view earlier in the thread ...
Whatever future the Rolling Stones have at this point in time, a large part of it rests in the hands of Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor. For those of you who believe that Ronnie's role in the Stones is deliberately restrained, then what he displayed tonight at the RAH would completely reaffirm that. Talk about "the ancient art of weaving" ... there was lots and lots of it going on between Ronnie & Mick Taylor. Pure joy. And as for Mick Taylor, seeing him up there tonight with Ronnie made me realise just how terribly underused he was on the 2012/2013 50th shows ....
Only hope Mick n' Keith are paying attention, and whatever it is they ARE planning for the Stones in due course, that it most certainly involves BOTH of these guys and in particular - much better use of Mick Taylor
Obviously not !
