Mick Taylor stays in Australia
Posted by: Bellajane ()
Date: March 20, 2014 16:58

I read in the Daily Mail that Mick Taylor was staying on in Australia after the other bandmembers left due to the tour cancellation. Has he issued a statement on L'Wren's death? Have heard comments from the others but not from him nor Bill Wyman.

Maybe they accidentally left him behind? Their still sort of figuring out where to use him...

If he's got any sense, Taylor doesn't have a press agent issuing statements on his behalf and has also escaped having a mike shoved in his face for meaningless comment when going out for dinner. I doubt most of the media currently following the story would have any idea who he is.

Wyman & Taylor are former members of The Rolling Stones and as such public statements from either of them on L'Wren Scott's death shouldn't be expected.

eh. Taylor has entered "semi-stone" status to me.

Wyman I bet has perhaps expressed his condolences to Mick in private.

The same for Taylor. Just because it's not public doesn't mean it didn't happen...although, if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it still make a noise?

Hang on, is that your cryptic way of saying Mick Taylor just fell on Ron Wood?

Maybe he's going to play with the Suffering Bastards?

(not that I want to start any rumours - it's a possible explanation).

Me too, but not when they are (only) strummed, but when they (also) are played distinctively and, at least, are audible.

That Sister Morphine snippet is wonderful, all the more so because one very rarely hears the more understated Ry Cooder-ish side of Taylor's slide playing.

I imagine that Mick T wants to stay out of the press scramble to take pics or get quotes from The Stones.

He will probably eventually say what this sad time has been like,as well as Keith,Charlie and Ronnie.

I don't think it will happen for a while.

Wouldn't be surprised if Mick T and Ronnie get together for a few gigs before The Stones in Europe.

They both love playing and keeps them busy in these difficult times for all concerned.

Too much strumming and not loud enough.
I prefer this:

Not loud enough??

It is supposed to underline the electric, not drown it!

You got me wrong. We were talking about liking the acoustic guitar. I said something about it: that I like it only when it's not (only) strumming etc. and when it's very well audible. And I gave two examples. The acoustic guitar on BS is not the a.g. I love the most, for given reasons: it's playing a subordinate role. That's allright, but not the way I love the a.g. been played in the first place.

Your post lacks klarity.

Well, I think it depends on the tree doesnt it? I mean, it if is just a littly bitty teeny tiny tree, it proably doesnt make any noise at all, now on the other hand...

Although a littly bitty teeny tiny tree probably feels just as sad as a big tall tree does when it falls in the woods, because, you know, falling in the woods and not being able to get up and no one around to hear or to help is probably a rough deal.

I wonder, when trees fall in the woods do they say "Ive fallen and I cant get up"

The band left MT behind on the tarmack. Poor poor MT.....no one remembered to tell him the tour was off and they were going home.

Some gigs with Bobby, Bernard or Tim Ries in Australia would be great for the fans, the backup musicians and band guys in general. Hopefully, they'll give MT a few traditional verse/chorus type songs to play with instead of MR and Satisfaction.

Who knows? Maybe he's really jamming along backstage each night to all the songs he's not on stage for.

That's really a special touch when that strumming acoustic comes in (and the castanettes -clicky percussion too), isn't it? Really rounds out the tune but most people don't know it's there by memory, only when you point it out to them. It's a great counter-rhythm pattern; wonder whether Miller, MJ, or KR suggested it?

What a bad tour. Stones are so insecure about Talor' s prowess that confine him to three songs and the L'Wren dies.

Ugh. Guess this means it's coach back to Heathrow.
