Question about Keith on bass
Posted by: Francis25 ()
Date: February 8, 2016 22:34

Hi !
During the MSG concert 1975 with Clatpon on guest star, Keith played bass guitar on "Sympathy for the Devil". Does someone know why ? Where was Wyman ?
Thanks !

No idea why, as Bill played sympathy for the devil live perfectly fine. Bill went on Synth.

Are there any other occasions on which Keith has played bass in live performance ?

There's the RNR Circus with EC & Lennon on Yer Blues... but I can't immediately bring to mind any others.

Didn't he also play bass the night Santana guested? June 27th?
I've got photos of him playing bass on two different MSG nights,
unless one is from a rehearsal.

He's a fine rock bass player. I believe he played it on the studio "Happy", too.

Ronnie played bass on FF. Bill was on synthesizer and Keith on guitar.

Ronnie did.

As for Sympathy: somehow they must have thought it a better idea to have only 2 guitar
players for that song, instead of three. Maybe they couldn't find an appropriate weaving
pattern for the three of them?

Just as long as the guitar plays, let it steal your heart away

Yes, and he played guitar when Jesse Ed Davis guested.

couple more - Jumping Jack flash, Street fighting Man ...

..listening recently to a lot of live Stones, on the From The Vault stuff, just makes me personally love Bill's bass playing even more.

they just went with what felt right in the studio and if Keith had a good bass idea then he played it...

Duke, I agree, I just listened to Start Me UP, and Bill is incredible on that.

Doesn't Keith play bass on Heartbreaker?

He does 1/2 the bass work on Ruby Tuesday

Keith is a good bassist but Bill has the much more nuanced feel for the instrument and is a better bassist imo. Nevertheless, I enjoy Keith's bass.

Pretty Beat Up! Perhaps the greatest bass track he ever recorded.

Little T+A as well. And I don't believe that Bill played the bass on Indian Girl..

The record version of JJF? That's a shocker. SFM.. That's a surprise too. These along with SFD are musical genius, perfection, brilliant stuff which is one of the many reasons that Keith is a giant. He's lovely to behold, strutting a Les Paul Junior these days, squaking atonal flurries at ear bleeding volume for us all. What a great time this is, sorry to go off topic but sometimes it's like that.

Keith WAS a decent bass player, with some fine moments from '66 to '72. But after that he either lost interest or lost his touch. And there are times when he was copying Bill's style, like Happy. Bill's style IS the Stones bass style. That's why you listen to Darryl and you keep waiting for him to put a note where Bill would, and he seems to intentionally not do it, and the Stones sound suffers for it. If he was putting something else there, something that enhanced the music I'd back off, but Darryl doesn't put anything memorable there. There's just big empty spaces where the bass should be. There's a reason they left the door open for Bill to return, for years.

You haven't been listening a lot to Crosseyed Heart? You'll find some very nice bass playing in there.

Quite a lot of very fine bass playing in fact. And even though some tracks have other bass players
you can always tell when it's Keith. That feel
