None. They only bring back for guest slots former full members, not hired side players or session players.

If all of them were still alive, they'd probably just tour with all the former members and dump all the newer people. Nothing against them, but if Preston, Hopkins, Brian Jones were still alive, and Wyman toured with them, thats a full band right there.

By that logic they should tour with Ian McLagan.

Nicky would probably play on Sympathy, She's a Rainbow, Angie, Monkey Man, Shine a Light, Waiting on a Friend, Sway, or Loving Cup... I'd put my money on Loving Cup though

Billy would play on Melody, I Got the Blues (with his Organ solo), or Ain't too Proud to Beg... Keeping in mind that they never play any of those.

If they still had Nicky they probably wouldn't even need Chuck though. He was basically a full member of the band during the making of Exile and around that whole era, just like Chuck is now.

Whatever Mick Jagger would tell them. If Nicky and Billy were still alive, Jagger wouldn't let them near a stage. Mac certainly hasn't. Why do you think that is?

I don't think Nicky was as strung out as Mac was. That's the reason + that Mac dared to crave more money. The latter according to Mac himself.

I don't know about that. Jerry Garcia, of all people, fired Nicky in 1976 due to drug and alcohol issues. Nicky's playing is erratic on the most recent Garcia archive release (12/31/75 Boarding House, his last show with Garcia).

That's the actual problem ... the only one who is still alive and the proper piano player for the band is Ian McLagan in my opinion.
