Wrong. He kept doing solo albums and shows, in addition to his day job.

Why are we discussing Ronnie in the Taylor-thread, btw smiling smiley

I have a close friend that was on the road with the Stones in the 90's. I will not go into details, but he was not "doing his day job" very well.

My point was to draw the comparison between Taylor's aggressive output within the comfort of the Stones camp compared to how tough it was outside of it.

It's well known how long Stones albums took to finish. I find it surprising that knowledgeable fans would say the Stones have a hard work ethic. Charlie and Bill pointed it out all the time. It would take them over a year to do what some bands did in less than a month.

Point taken. However, they kept themselves busy outside of the Stones bubble, too. They didn't have to do that, even though it may have been easier with their Stones connections.

In the 80s, during 'WWIII', Ronnie played the clubs, cruise ships and whatever with rather unknown bands, to put it mildly.

My point is that they might perhaps be more active types of musicians than Taylor, zonked out or not.

Perhaps, but I'm thinking they had the luxury of choice. And I want to be clear, Taylor quit the Stones, so he could have continued that luxury if he wanted. I'm in no way blaming the Stones. Taylor also made it clear in an interview he wasn't interested in joining any band inferior to the Stones, so that doesn't leave a lot of options!

I just think he had to do the seemingly endless club tours around the globe just to scrape by. He never had the cult following like Clapton, which would have given him more solo recording opportunities. It was HARD to get a record done back then as an Indy! Pay the studio, pay the engineers, pay the musicians, find an interested label. Now, we can record one in our bedroom and have somebody dub drums on it in theirs from across the country!

My point is -Taylor had all the talent and the big Stones reference to be a prolific session guitarist with all the great bands in this world. As with Wood, the Stones reference opens all the doors for you -if you want it, and if you work hard for it. And even if you are Ron Wood of the Stones you have to arrange the band, and you have to arrange somebody to pick up your amp and guitar. And you have to rehearse, and do the show relatively sober. Taylor just misses all that -he has the talent, he has the references, but he misses the stamina to do the hard work.

There's an interview with Ian McLagan about the Bob Dylan tour, and Dylan himself remarks about Taylor during the Live Aid rehearsals: great guitarist, but difficult to work with as he was always gone, always missing in action, very difficult to communicate with. Never a part of the band, always alone.

Thats it in a nutshell. Recalling from Mac's book that Mick Taylor spent the tour "doctor shopping" to get pain pills (which Mac admitted sharing in) and that one particular evening was so zonked out that they couldnt wake him up for the gig. Dylans management fired him but after a few hours of pondering what the band would sound like with only Dylans distinctive electric guitar syle, Taylor was reinstated. Im sure its not an easy gig but being Dylan's band leader/lead guitarist would have been a nice long term prestige gig for Taylor. His playing on "Infidels" was great and I (for one) enjoy alot of "Real Live". A shame it didnt pan out.

Have you read the Dylan bio? Dylan apparently was extremely hard to work with. They didn’t know what they were playing every time they walked on stage. It was incredibly stressful for Taylor at the beginning, from what I remember, and that’s when he was fired/quit and brought back.

Also, Nicky Hopkins was supposed to be the keyboard player but Dylan wouldn’t approve an acoustic piano being taken around on tour lol

I always thought Taylor's guitar did not suit Dylan's music well. If Taylor wanted to play with the 3rd legend of the 1960s, he would have with his melodic guitar suited McCartney better. He would have given an edge to the music. He would have been better in Ringo's allstars. I do not like his playing with Dylan.

Bobby keeping his band on their toes. Not a bad thing. I'd imagine it gets stale playing the same thing the same way every night (although that's what he does now...).

To me this is one of the most beautiful things Taylor ever played.

I love his guitar work with Dylan. He traverses the whole spectrum from the ethereal joy of Jokerman to the downright sinister heard on Watchtower. Pure rock n roll on Highway 61 to dirty swamp slide on Tombstone Blues.

Jokerman is fantastic. Underrated Dylan tune.

I think Taylor had a great sense of timing and rhythm. It isn't talked about much because he is such an iconic lead player. I was in a studio once where he was overdubbing a lead for someone. And it really didn't sound all that great. Or so I thought. We were hearing only him. when heard in context of the track I was blown away.

Maybe, finally, he's got a setlist he adheres to. (Is that true?) At any point I'm sure it's much more peppered with old, newer, and new, as opposed to our favorite band.
