Greg Harewood is the new bass player. The press release makes it sound like it was Beverly Skeete's suggestion to re-form The Rhythm Kings, but the contact info is Terry Taylor music. As most will know, Terry has been Bill's collaborator for over 50 years on dozens of projects. It would appear he owns the name now.

They seem to ignore Bill...I mean it was Bill Wyman´s Rhythm Kings...

"In 1996 a group of musicians were assembled to form
a supergroup. Musicians involved in this project were
numerous and included many household names. Players
such as Peter Frampton, Graham Broad ,Gary Brooker,
Geraint Watkins ,Andy Fairweather-Low, Mike Sanchez,
Georgie Fame, Frank Mead ,Martin Taylor, Nick Payn ,
Albert lee and Chris Stainton. The one female addition
was Beverley Skeete.

Thus the Rhythm Kings were born.

Over the years the line-up changed and special
guests included Dennis Locorriere ( the voice of Dr Hook)
Eddie Floyd, Mary Wilson, and Gary U.S Bonds. Even soul
legends like Solomon Burke, Ben. E. King, Percy Sledge
and Sam Moore were party to the 'Rhythm Kings' Magic.



After many years of touring members went their separate
ways .but with the success of Beverley's solo project she
managed to convince some of the original key players to
join her in reforming a smaller version of the band in
order to resume touring again. After a few sold out shows
it was evident that there is still a market for excellence
such as the Rhythm Kings."

One gig so far but read the description "previously featuring Bill Wyman".

It don't seem right to me somehow without Bill

Their tour ends with a 1 July date at Bury St Edmonds which is pretty close to Bill's country home.
Maybe he will be a 'guest' ?

And we thought photoshopping him out of Stones' album covers was shitty.

Now he's been written out of the history of the band he formed and which was named after him. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

I wonder what happened there, and if Bill is fine with that bio... confused smiley

Strange to not even see Bill's name in the bio...?

I mean, he more or less started this project didn't he?
