Stones tours and TV shows: pianos and keyboards

Please be merciful... This keyboard post is to be much, much improved, especially regarding the choice of sounds and instruments...

I may be wrong, but it seems they use only a regular, non-electric piano on stage until January 1973 (LA Forum) since their keyboardists were Nicky Hopkins and Ian Stewart.
Nicky used a toad piano. Ian Stewart used a grand piano.
Quite difficult to find pictures on stage with Nicky and Ian in those years…. Please fill the gap…

Billy Preston had both a grand piano and a synthetiser in 1973 as well as in 1975 and 1976. However, there are 6 sizes of grand piano, and it may be interesting to know which size Billy and Ian Stewart used, since it’s also a question of logistics for touring




At that time, Ian had a grand piano aside Billy




Mick also used a keyboard on Fool to Cry, Far Away Eyes and later on Worried About You. Please tell us more…

in 1976, Bill used a keyboard on Fingerprint File, while Ronnie played the bass guitar. Please find a pic

In 1981-82
Ian Stewart used a grand piano, Ian Mc Lagan some other keyboards, not sure if you call it a piano


From 1989 and later on: two ranges of keyboards, with Chuck leavell and Matt Clifford, not sure if any of those instruments may be call a piano

Special player: Brian Jones playing piano on Let’s Spend the Night Together 1967

Special guest: Stephen Stills in Amsterdam 1970


Special guest: Elton John in Fort Collins 1975 (no picture on stage)




Some interesting interview with Ian McLagan:

Ian with the Faces


Ian with the New Barbarians, Keith also on keyboard

Really? No one would comment about the evolution, style and choice about the Stones keyboards on stage in some 60 years sad smiley

Looking at the image above, of the back of the Philadelphia 81 show CD, it occurs to me that by the time the 81-82 tour is over, Ronnie was already the longest reigning guitar player in the band at that point. At that point, they're only 20 years into their illustrious career. It's so hard to fathom sometimes.

And people said: Go, see the Stones. It might be their last tour. And now it is 42 years later.
