Share your favourite clips of Keith riffing up, slashisng the rhythm and pulling the weave tight, from 1989 onwards.

I'm looking forward to it!

Slashing the rhythm OR weaving?

Slashing the rhythm: Street Fighting Man or Rip This Joint on Stripped

Weaving: Beast Of Burden, Miami 1994 or Midnight Rambler, Atlantic city 1989 (the instrumental section in the middle of the song)

Lead guitar: Bitch, Atlantic city 1989

His solo on Sympathy for the Devil from 'At the Max' (Wembley 1990) is one of the best and longest I've heard.

That was what came to my mind as well. When I first got into the Stones, I couldn't figure out why Keith didn't play like this more often.

He don't really enjoy it, according to himself.

Oh I know that now...just at the time I wondered. I was naive about music...I figured if someone could play lead guitar like that, they'd want to do it constantly.

Quite a bit of that "At the Max" was recorded in front of an empty stadium. Hope Keef's solo wasn't a visual and audio overdub.

The footage for his solo was shot from a bizarre angle, almost like it was shot from backstage, and the audience is visible if I'm not mistaken.

However, so much of Live at the Max is overdubbed and sterile that I don't enjoy watching it at all.

I was there. I remember how Keith cut Mick off mid-sentence while he was working the crowd...what a moment.

They had problems with the sound recording this and keith hits a few bum notes but nothing can take away the fact that this was keith at the peak of his powers.
BTW keith played SFTD consistently this way on this leg of the tour. There is a better version on another night but i cant find it right now

Go to 51 minutes on for his solo on SFTD

Had a smile on my face before I even clicked the link... Your hint gave it away (to me at least)! There are a couple of other versions of KR/Winos doing this song that I rank in my favorite Keith musical moments (including Stones). Something about the song itself must touch Keith. Personally, I'd LOVE it if he could convince himself and the rest of the Stones that this one would work on a Stones stage in place of either Happy or Before They Make Me Run. Detractors aside, no bathroom break THAT night for the tourists!

Peace,
Mr DJA

Yes he puts a smile on my face too smiling smiley. I just love the way he attacks his guitar at the end of this one.
Its better Riffing on 'Will But You Wont' and 'Whip it Up' but i just love the cool way Keith hits the Stage and confidently cajoles you, he is the essence of Rock and Roll, this whole gig and the Hollywood Palladium gig in 88' was a masterclass in Riffing. Nobody does it better.

Thanks man that is the one, i couldn't remember Cheers Stonesfan smileys with beer

OMG that just blew me away,that just made me so high, Keith is just beyond anything i can describe here, the coolest cat in the world. I mean he plays rhythm leads like that, who else does that. Why did he have to get arthritis, god knows what he might have achieved, he was just getting better and better at this stage.

In the post 89 era. I have to say that BY FAR!! his best guitar work is with the Winos; both tours.
He became confident, assured, more relaxed as A bandleader and singer. The way "Time is on My Side" was arranged was beautiful. On guitar it just got better and better. His partnership with Waddy brought many excellent results. Closer to his Taylor partnership. But Waddy can also twang with the best of'em.
The arrangements lent themselves to very good guitar passages. I can't remember if it was the first or second Wino tour but I saw Keith do a "solo" on 'Struggle', which was every bit as good as his "bye Bye Johnny" or "Carol" from '72 and '69. I put "solo" in quotations because it isn't a solo in conventional sense but a rhythmic chopping of double stops and bends and slides. His performance was jaw dropping.

Absolutely agree with you, the decline happened shortly after the last Wino's tour in 93', he wasn't the same player in 94' 95' i'm convinced it was a combination of the drink catching up with him combined with those Heberden's nodes on his fingers. The second decline happened in 06' after the brain bleed and subsequent cranial surgery, after which he could no longer take cocaine to sharpen his playing while drinking. Basically it all caught up with him but he soldiers on like a real trouper. I still think he pulls it off for the best part of most shows these days, he appears sober most nights, he was in fine form at the second Desert gig and the last show they played in Vegas. He still has something to offer, he needs more shows though, 15 date tours just aren't long enough for him to get his chops together fluently. Come on Keith get the Wino's out for one last Hurrah , the old lion roars again smoking smiley

The Double Door gig in Chicago, 1997 shows the Stones and Keith in fine shape. Keith is on fire during Jumping Jack Flash starting at 1;00;00 up to the end of the song. Keith was still very strong and totally enthousiastic. A great thrill to watch!

It's crazy to think that his best playing post '89 (or really any time after he kicked H) was fueled by cocaine, but it's pretty much true. I doubt he ever hit the stage without doing a few lines right beforehand.

Those very first shows after his head/brain injury were a heartbreaker. The coolest dude on the planet had been brought to his knees. On the other hand - just the fact that he got up there and went on made him grander than ever. But it took time's passage to put all that into context. At the actual time it was hard to watch. I recall those first few clips with Elvis Costello, and another with John Lee Hooker (?). Keith has never quite recovered.
I don't think a 3rd Wino tour would change that. all one has to do is listen to Crosseyed Heart. Age caught up with him almost overnight.
