I wonder if the entire concert has been filmed.

SFM Amsterdam 1970.

Saw MT solo in 1995 in LA. My pal and I got to meet him and
we purchased an autographed BOX CD set with an MT guitar pick.
For $20, it was a smart purchase.

BTW-MT was a very nice guy and nice to talk to.

I've seen him as a Bluesbreaker at the Roxy in '82 which was better than many of the Stones shows I've attended (musically speaking).
And then back in his rightful place as a Stone (but labeled a "guest") six times back in 2013 where he was no doubt the highlight - especially the second L.A. Staples show, May 20.
Also saw him as a solo act w/his band at the 100 Club in London, 2003.

Would have loved to have seen him live with the Stones back in their prime, but thankfully there's plenty of audio and video documentation from that era to enjoy.

Hi Hairball, were you waiting outside the 100 Club (2003) when Mick Taylor arrived (with his Dutch girlfriend)? If so, did you see him coming up to a guy and shook his hands?

I don't recall any of that georgie, but I'm assuming that was you he greeted and shook hands with?
Over 17 years ago now (hard to believe) chances are I was already inside hunkered down at front of stage center waiting for the maestro to unleash his virtuosity.thumbs up

It was me indeed. In 2002 I was involved in making radio programs on the Stones history and we managed to invite Mick Taylor to the (small) studio to contribute to the "Mick Taylor years", both through an interview and by playing live (with the help of a friend). It was a very enjoyable day (he also signed my daughter's guitar) and we talked a lot about lots of things. So it wasn't a big surprise that he walked up to me in 2003. I even remember there was a very light drizzling rain at some point while we were waiting outside. Time flies ...
But ... just one more month and the GHS de Luxe will arrive smileys with beer

Yes just one more month before GHS Deluxe....thumbs up

But wondering how long until they release a brand new album? Or will they ever release one at all?
With all the focus on the past, not sure if they'll ever be able to focus on an entire brand new album.
Another covers album maybe, and they could easily spit one right out ala Blue and Lonesome, but an album of new originals?
Probably not...probably more likely to see a new MT solo album than a new Stones album (which truth be told might be preferable at this point).
Oh well georgie, what to do...no new tour and no new album...the Stones are simply living in the past...better than nothing I suppose.

Only as a “guest”. Still a privilege. Seen him with Ronnie Wood in the Cutting Room in NYC a few years ago. Met him that night as well. Nice fella

Yes,

Essen 1970
And some 1973 gigs.

Among them the 3 Essen shows,
where I worked as a local roadie.
Helping with the Stones Mobile.
That's how I know they recorded them.

Edit:

That sounds great. As far as I know there's only one audience recording from Essen 1970. Is there any chance they recorded that with the Stones Mobile; that would be an amazing hidden gem ?

Nah, unfortunately not the nice Essen 70 show.

They recorded some gigs in 73. But not all.
But the 3 Essen gigs in a row were among them.

I'm sure Mick (and Keith) are still looking ahead, but as always, we "poor" fans have to be patient. 2022 is my relaxed focus ... including news songs. I suggest you join me on that focus winking smiley

No, and I’m still kicking myself for not going in 2013 thinking he’d be back on the next North American tour closer to home.

My pops saw them in 1969 and is still kicking himself for not going in ‘72. Like father like son.

Join you on that 2022 focus georgie? Been there,done that, several times now. winking smiley
In fact I've been in the 2018 camp, the 2019 camp, and the 2020 camp, but after experiencing the repeated failure of the Stones to deliver a new album, I've gone to the camps 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024.
As of right now, I've finally and comfortably settled safely in to the 2025 camp. After hearing them repeatedly blab on about "working on a new album" with nothing to show for it all these years later, I'm a bit jaded.
Yes they released a brand new single tune, and yes it's a great one, but ONE tune after all this time!!! And hear they are farting around with the GHS Deluxe - currently focusing all their energy on a crappy tune like Scarlet...
So sit back, relax, don't set yourself up for disappointment, enjoy the Deluxe releases, and don't hold your breath for anything new...join the 2025 camp today and you might not be disappointed!smiling smiley

Yes i have. Montreal, July17,1972 and not again until Toronto 2, June 2013 where he played on both Midight Rambler AND Can't you Hear me Knocking. Also got to see him at the McGill University union ballroom (Montreal) in Oct. 1968 as a Bluesbreaker with John Mayall. It was a sparsely attended show and i was able to stand directly in front of him for the entire performance. Wish i could tell you that i was awestruck and totally blown away by his playing but, truth be told, it was over 50 years ago and i remember next to nothing.eye rolling smiley

2025? My goodness Hairball. I'll be the same age then as Mick is now. I have to make sure I'm in good shape by then, if I want to swing on yet another Stones concert grinning smiley
Only listening to records ... noooo.
I'm in good shape now, but will have to ask Mick what he is doing all the time (apart from living with younger women grinning smiley). Maybe I should join his program making sure he is also in good shape being 82 then. Ah well, some prospects ahead. I keep you informed cool smiley

Cheers georgie - for your sake and mine, I truly hope to be proven wrong about 2025.
Maybe when the GHS Deluxe dust has settled, they'll refocus their energy on the supposed new album....smileys with beer
And since it seems it's all Mick in charge of the GHS promo department, I have a feeling Keith is currently doing just that - refocusing on some new "dynamite riffs" for the future.

This is from Frankfurt '73, it mirrors my impression, especially those blue spotlights from behind the stage. Taylor just playing, not acting.

Caught him several times in '13, one of the best 'Rambler renditions I've ever seen in Vegas, all three of them on their knees following Taylor's lead. Was fantastic!

Anyone catch him with them in '81?


I was there in Vegas 2013 and I don't remember them going down on their knees. I'll have to check the video which I think Glimmer Stone had up, but maybe is lost now since he got hacked.

My first Stones concert was July 1972 at the old Boston Garden. I've told the story before so let's say it was memorable for A LOT of reasons..the first being the arrest of Mick & Keith the night before my show..Keith punched a photographer is Warwick, Rhode Island and mayor Kevin White bailed them out. I saw them the NEXT night and Mick Taylor was brilliant...Love In Vain...PERFECTION as was Midnight Rambler! I'm sure the band played on very little sleep seeing as how they never finished that first show until near 3AM...The Taylor years were, IMO the VERY BEST of the Rolling Stones years...he has a fluidity that is beyond compare and they are a BLUES BASED BAND and MT is all about the blues. I wish he'd stayed with them. Many years later I saw Mick Taylor solo at a club in Troy New York called the Van Dyke....he was under the influence of SOMETHING, couldn't TALK straight but it didn't affect his playing! Sad to see him that way...it looked like he had on a wig...not very well put together. A friend who knows a lot of inside stuff about the band said he had been on heavy pain meds due to severe back pain so that may have been why he was so loopy. Still, he played brilliantly!
