This was posted before but since the subject came up, thought I'd re share it. Just an interesting slice of history.

In my opinion, though the above is accurate, it's also an understatement. If you haven't seen the Muscle Shoals Documentary, look for it. You'll most likely be happy you found it.

Peace,

Jim Dickinson, who played piano, never got paid for the session.

Is that true, or just one of the tired Stones memes -- i.e., that supposedly they stole from everybody.
There is an interview on the Web in which he says that playing on that song was a big boon to his career.

Q: Rumour always had it that the Stones do endless takes - which Keith is never happy with...

Damn, JD doesn't pull any punches!

Oh, they do now and [chuckles] the records have suffered, unquestionably. They haven't made a record as good as Sticky Fingers - they've cut some singles that were pretty good but mostly overproduced. That [in Muscle Shoals] was one of the last times - as far as I can tell - when they actually played together as a band, without the issue of "who's gonna do the bass part?" and all that other crap.

I took my kids to see their last American tour, 'cause they'd never seen 'em, but it wasn't a real 'Stones show - the kick drum was so loud, it sounded like a @#$%&' disco band and I don't care who that bass player is, he's not playing the parts. The keyboard parts, don't get me started on them - as far as I'm concerned, the parts are compositional and they should be @#$%&' played. That no-talent, lounge-playing @#$%& they've got playing keyboards is not even coming close.

In the doc Keef did mention about wanting to record more there, would've been cool if 'work on "Exile" could've actually been recorded there, Hoorah For Stone's History in My State!
