Yes, I think we all had fun, both those on stage and those watching and listening, and the Rhythm Kings set the mood perfectly, playing a variety of musical styles to create a party like atmosphere, only to be followed by Chuck loosely playing numbers the crowd just wanted to hear (though personally I could have done without Ding-a-Ling).

Still in great voice, his playing ability has understandably deteriorated over the years. The much better than expected backing band, including his son covering up for the old fella from time to time, and a bass player that had been with him for the last 30 years made it an enjoyable 60 minutes of jukebox nostalgia.

Chuck seemed to be enjoying himself far more than when I last saw him a few years back. Maybe all concerts are this much fun at the Heineken Music Hall I don't know, but it's a great venue, holds around 5,000 I think, with crystal clear acoustics up in the balcony.

Overall rating: 8 (and a half) out of 10.

Hi coconuts. It was my pleasure meeting you and your daughter. Yes, we noticed how much fun she had on stage (it is visible in the youtube video). I am glad you enjoyed your coming to the Netherlands.

Yes, marcovandereijk, I can see they all have a lot of fun! Thank's.

Thank's also for the setlist and all other great comments!

"My Ding-A-Ling" : The original performer was Dave Bartholomew or The Bees, and I think the name of the song was "Toy Bell" or something this time, long time ago... But now it's Ding-A-Ling for all of us!

Here is my list on YouTube with more fun:

Yes, the way he mumbels. And he started a story, and on the half of that story, he was loosing it, he really didn`t know what he was saying, altough his playing was good, not outstanding, just good, i think he had some problems with the audio on the first song, but that`s not him to blaim.

He was NOT drunk at all.

He was just as shy as always.
Maybe impressed and nervous too.
It's quite a while he played for a such a number of people.

Many people who were at the show said that Mick's performance was the hightlight of the evening. He brought some fire to Bill's performance.

I think it was difficult for Mick to play Fed Up With The blues and No Expectations with the horn section. They didn't allow him to bring in the vibro we usually hear him doing.

There are a couple of pauses, when he addressess Bill and says "It's very nice to be here... with you ... and your band, you know. I'm in excellent company". It's when there are emotions involved that are not easily put into words. Whether everyone in the crowd got the message or not, Bill definitely understood what Mick T was saying.
He does finish the story he started. Nothing to do with being under the influence. When you haven't played together on the same stage since October '73 it's not going to leave you totally cold.

Well pardon me, it was my first time to watch him live, but the way he walks of the stage, and the way he talks, mabey it`s emotions, but for me it look like he was drunk or something, and like i said before, he played good, not outstanding. And he didn`t disappoint me at all, but that was just the feeling he gave me, it was the same feeling i had with Keith in Nijmegen last year. And okay they didn`t play together for a crowd since 1973, but i`m sure they always stayed in touch, all the guys have respect for each other, as a musician. So my point is, it can`t be true that a guy from 50 plus, are shaking on stage while he lived his whole live from tour to tour, and it wasn`t his biggest audience in years, he played a lot on blues and jazz festivals, and they are crowdy to.

How can you be so sure of this - do you have a tap on Mick T's phone or does Bill give you regular updates on his private conversations ?

That's true, he does regularly play to crowds that are more or less similar in size. Although Mick T is naturally quite a shy or soft spoken person (off stage), there was no "shaking" during this performance, as far as I'm aware of. Still, I think this was a very special occasion for both Mick T and Bill.

It was a treat to appear on the same stage the same night Bill Wyman & Mick Taylor played in Amsterdam. I know I really had a good time. Getting the few minutes to talk to Bill before we went on stage was really cool too!

Re: Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor and Chuck Berry Amsterdam Reviews

Yes it was an outstanding event!
Mick Taylor played a show within another show, his two songs changed the whole atmosphere in the 5500 crowded house...! That's something just a few talents can accomplish... He's brilliant.
I happen to know the promoter a little and spoke to him a week after the show, after I told him about the "rumours" on this board about Mick being under influence he said:
"nonsense, totally not true. Mick did not even had a regular beer or something, not a drop of it. Almost all the other bandmembers had a little wine or beer like everybody does, but Mick did not even take one beer, or maybe just one after the show. No drugs or alcohol involved. The only fact is that he was just recovering from a bad flue, that's all"
