Listening to IORR from El Mocambo… I wonder when Ronnie was last allowed to sing background vocals live on stage

He definitely did some backing vocals on 81/82 tours.

The Fowlers, et al has been depressing for me, I much preferred when Keith / Ronnie sang backup.

Robert Christgau once said Wood should never be allowed to sing 2songs in a row

1981 - 82 tour was the last time it was a regular thing. They did let him chip in on JMI on one of their recent tours. Pretty sure that's about it.

There's the 1974-1982 albums and tours plus UNDERCOVER and DIRTY WORK.

If any have happened since I don't remember or have never read such a thing.

I loved Keef 'n Ronnie on backing vocals in 75/76, 78, 81/82 tours.

I think it was such a fundamental part of their sound on those tours, and was such a pity they stopped it - amongst many other ingredients which were lost come '89.
Something was definitely lost from their sound when they were both replaced by the backing singers.

I appreciate it was probably to help Mick share the singing load and perhaps Keef 'n Ronnie couldnt sing backing any more for over 2 hours, but still......

Ronnie is damn near the perfect rock star! Perfect hair, perfect look - great, great guitarist. But he cannot sing! If he could sing as well he plays, he wouldn't be in the Rolling Stones.

not exactly sharing the mic with Jagger, but Ronnie sings into Fowler's mic – but everybody does sing on that (even Darryl but not Charlie Watts (of course not))-

Ronnie was a co-lead singer during the 1979 New Barbarians tour, I believe...

He sounded a bit like a raven, to me...

I was reading about that year. As I recall, Ronnie went into rehab very very soon after that.

I can't recall if it was the second or fifth time but... he was quite snookered, huh.

Yeah, I can prob go to my local taverns and find a better singers, not the point ...
He and Keith are perfect singers for the Stones backup vocals.

BTW, some could say Bernard is a better singer than Mick - would you prefer him to sing the lead?

He always did @#$%&.
I think Ronnie is a great singer. He is not the best BU singer; much better lead singer. Way too much personality in his vocals, to be a BU.
