Man is he good... He completely steals the show. What is that, disco-walking-bass on a rock tune? Who ever played such fab lines? And how well he listens to the others. The guy kept quiet but he certainly was paying attention to every note and delivering.

He was concentrated on the music, not posing (OK, and women!). He was always one unit with Charly. As a that unit they've been the driving engine of the Stones. There are a lot of great Burdens from 78 having great Bill moments. Or listen to Under My Thumb from Hampton 81. What a grooving and swinging bass. And did you watch Bill on that London 82 She's So Cold video when they f*cked it up totally? Priceless!

Bill was the best they ever had. In fact, probably the best rock 'n' roll bass player ever. Too bad he quit... but he's making some fine music with the Rhythm Kings now. You can hear that great playing there too. He makes a song come alive.

The Stones never sounded as well after he left. He's 100% rock 'n' roll!

Bill was absolutely oustanding on the '78 tour, his best along with the '81 imo. There's a great sense of relaxation and liberation in his playing that I like, like he could do anything he wanted and still sound great, such ease and groove. His entrance on UMT Hampton is sensational indeed.

Once I saw this title, I thought it should be corrected to "Bill of Burden".
I'll never be your Bill of burden,
my bass is broke, my feet are hurting,
Come back Suzanne, and do a little dance for me.
