What about Mick Taylor? Or did he get the usual Rolling Stones shaft

What has it got to do with the Stones? They didnt organise the event. Charlie's daughter and granddaughter did.


I think he was in the band during their golden era that’s all

But The Stones didn't organise this, nor did they invite people to the event.

A nice tribute for Charlie. thumbs up

I bet Charlie would have liked Mick Taylor to be there as he always talked very fondly of that era of the band - specifically the guitar playing of Mick Taylor.
And glad Bill was there, but also understandable why he didn't play after the odd treatment he received during his guest appearances in 2012.

RIP Charlie.

Taylor wasn't there, according to Ben Waters. So it will be true.

What has Mick Taylor to do with the Stones.. and or their family.. Everything because he was a member once. I remember a picture were Mick Taylor walked with Charlie's daughter and / or granddaughter when he played in Holland (pinkpop) with the Stones. They went along very well.

Then unless anyone seriously believes that the Stones only agreed to turn up on the condition that Taylor didnt, I'd suggest they take up his non appearance up with Charlie's family

Might be better to take up his non-appearance with himself. Who knows if he was invited or aware of the tribute. I'm sure he was very welcome had he turned up (not his amp), but he might be a bit rusty to perform and travelling during lockdown times is a drag unless a limo picked him up.

Would be easy to go there by car. Everybody has an international QR-code, passing the tunnel to England.

Unbelievable.

Even for a tribute some have to be negative about it.

Right??
Have to laugh.. it's like a career for some.

Segueing from a perceived (delusional) MT snub right into Bill Wyman.
Points for an active imagination tho . Lol.

Yes, it is none of my business, I acknowledge that, and, as well, I know nothing about how and why. Nonetheless, as a complete outsider I can't help regarding it a saddening aspect that Mick Taylor was not present on an evening of rememberance of Charlie.

Agree 100%, now stop calling me frankly (sorry I have to say that every time I see that word)

Sure they worked together 50 years ago, but it doesnt mean they maintained a personal relationship too That could be on Mick T for all we know. Or maybe he WAS invited and just didn’t go. The comment that Mick T got the shaft is annoying. some people are always looking for a conspiracy


Mick Taylor getting the shaft over the years is far from a conspiracy. Where have ya been?
This night was about Charlie, not Mick Taylor.

Closure finally.

Very pleased it happened. I hope no one taped it and it was just for those in the room.

Would be something IF this ended up being the last time Mick and Keith played together, at Ronnie Scott's of all places. Loved reading the reports of the tribute event. Sounded perfect.

I love how fans think they know everything. If Charlie's family did the invites and Mick Taylor was not included why is that any of our business? Mick left the band 45 years ago. Who knows if he even kept in touch with the Watts's maybe he did maybe he didn't. We always seem to want to make something of every little tidbit. It's really tiresome. I've read it's a shame there was no band picture blah blah blah. And yes CindyC can we all stop with frankly?!

also Leavell didn´t attended and fortunately nobody cares about that

I am happy there was a tribute to Charlie. Unless people from this forum were actually there and in the room, I think it is pointless to speculate about who was invited or who should have been invited. I can only imagine that Charlie's family must be extremely grateful and overwhelmed by all the support and well wishes they have received since his death. As a long time Stones fan, the world was extremely blessed to have such an elegant and talented musician among us. Rest in peace Charlie!

We all hope it wasn’t, but it’s a MUCH better place for them to play than Hollywood, Florida —- or a private show for the Krafts at Gillette Stadium.

Much as I love Bill, he's not exactly a clothes horse is he? You'd think a multi-millionaire could dress in a complete suit.

When The Rolling Stones were first touring around the UK in the 1960's there were repeated 'scandals' when they turned up at hotel restaurants - wait for it! - shockingly, absolutely shockingly, (those with a weak disposition avert your eyes) not wearing a tie!

ie They were in the vanguard of the social movements that led to the overthrow of very many silly and pointless dress codes.

So to read him, or for that matter ANY Rolling Stone, being criticised for not wearing a suit is, frankly, shocking.

Judge the man, not his clothes.
