Love Mick Taylor's playing. But he is not a lead vocalist. Pretty bland.

Eggzactly - MT's vocals are bland at best. I think I even prefer Bill Wyman's vocals over his, bland as his are too.

We won't be having an endless Wood/Taylor debate here this time. Taylor just isn't a good singer, and doesn't have a good voice.

Mathijs

Wood is worse.

...and we're off! Personally, I think it's a tie.

Taylor's has a bluesy, rather soulful voice. Wood's voice is an aquired taste, pretty raspy.
What is interesting is that they perfectly complement each other and actually sound great singing together. As was in evidence at the NYC gigs last month.

Wood was tolerable on Ooh La La and his first solor records, and now is unlistenable. I think Taylor did a damn fine job on his first solo record, but now just sings like a million other blues-based guitarists - functionally at best.

Can't agree totally, but I'm glad you enjoy it, Jane:





when that was recorded he should have got mick jagger to overdub the vocals and removed his own , I love the song myself but that would have been fantastic! its easy to imagine MJ vocals on this.

They agreed a draw lately and enjoyed it. Both as a singer and guitarist. They are no chess players.

Well, he certainly got a grip on his singing on I Feel Like Playing. I agree about a couple of albums before that, though.

Today, he sings pretty good, imo.

Seemingly, taking lessons (guessing), quitting drugs and booze helped a lot.

You gotta admit that the Far East Man-vocals are way more than "tolerable"??

I don't mind the comparison, but if he tried, then it's only good.

Your comment seems to be based on the notion that everything should sound like the Stones...
Did you know there's life outside (and after) the Stones ?

He he, yes I do. In fact, I'm probably listening way more to other bands and musicians nowadays smiling smiley

However, when straycatblues73 said Taylor should have brought in Jagger to finish this song, it is for a reason. This track, in particular, is the Stonesy one on Mick Taylor's first album. Some also say its lyrics is about why he left the group, as well as a sticking a few thorns in their sides.

For me, the sound on Broken Hands is pure Stones - from the Keith riffs (played in standard tuning, btw) to the rougher attitude in his vocals and the drive in the song. At least, it sounds like that's what he wants to achieve. There's only one problem: It doesn't sound that way - like all the other bands who wanna sound like the Stones. So when Taylor plays the archetypical Keith riff, he lacks the depth as well as the power and timing. It's the same when Ronnie tries it with the Faces. It just isn't right, imo.

I thought this was obvious - maybe it isn't. IMO, he doesn't succeed in creating the sound, but it's one of the few good songs on the album anyway.

A pretty daring question on your fifth post, Chacal. You wouldn't be one of the returning prodigal IORR-sons, would you? winking smiley

He didn't help him out on this one. The difference between Taylor (who is totally ok on vocals, but nothing more, imo) is within how much soul that comes across to the listener, imo.

Yep, I listened to it now. Open E it is. That's probably what made it sound so different - same with Ronnie in the Faces. The "Keith riffs" won't get the same ringing with the thicker strings.
