They should bring Taylor back *with* Florence Welch on GS.... that would be fun. But I doubt it would happen...

QuoteThe Sicilian QuoteOlly It's unfortunate for Wyman's legacy that the beginning of the Stones' best era as a live act coincided with him leaving the band. Would we have had those swaggering, uninhibited performances during 1994/5 with a motionless Wyman onstage? Bill's departure seemed to release the Stones back to their roots. A capable bassist, but Darryl Jones i

Quoterunaway It looks 70s to me and Keith is looking to another person with a drink and cigarette. Yes, no doubt in my mind about that. Keith definitely is not looking at whatever it is Taylor is doing in that moment.

Don Was mentions in an interview, for the re-release of Exile and the bonus tracks, that he specifically searched for anything Parsons may have done with the Stones at Nellcote while going through the vault. But he couldn't find anything... Leon Russell has a mention of Graham in connection to Wild horses here... says he does not believe its his song... video: Nice cover though..

QuoteJJHMick Regarding that money issue: Bill stated in an interview for a German magazine that Mick Taylor wanted be paid out when he left. And he sure must have received a lot of money! Bill also said (quote) "I was cleverer than Mick" and more furture conscious and only left the band as a musician and a shareholder. So, whenever f.e. Angie is played on the radio Mick J and Keith

I can understand why so many are put off by Donald Trump -- he has indulged in some inflammatory rhetoric, and misrepresented a number of issues..(in the latter he is far from alone though). But if not everyone here knows, he is not by standard terms an American far right winger or similar. Those folks complain considerably about him... a one time proponent of single payer health care, an atte

Perhaps an interesting sidebar for some... I believe Bill Wyman says that when he quit, he put it to Mick, Keith and Charlie to make Ronnie Wood a "full" member on the business end (for those proceeds that are, and were, split 4 ways). Now, perhaps this isn't true or Bill exaggerates his part in this, or The Glimmers would have done it anyway, since they didn't stand to los

QuoteBashlets overall, I think it has aged very well. Although it was initially trashed by critics when it came out, I think the attitude has changed about this one. And, not just the critics. Mick and Keith gave it some real backhanded swipes themselves around the time that Some Girls came out. I think they sincerely had no use for it. But it has aged well.

QuoteHMS So Mick has written Sway, Moonlight Mile, 100 Years Ago & Dead Flowers without Keith - so what? Okay, Sway is a good one, no doubt about it, but Moonlight Mile is the weirdest and strangest thing on SF and I dont like it at all. 100 Years Ago is simple boring, boring, boring and Dead Flowers is an attempt to write a country song without creating a highlight, it´s rather average.

QuoteHMS QuoteSweetThing Yeah, no kidding.. not least, to imagine NO Brian Jones up on stage with Mick and Keith at the very start. That begins to change the dynamics immediately...not just musically, but behind the scenes (who does Keith room with in that coldest of winters?), and image-wise on stage - does the frenzy still start? Is it as intense? If there had never been a Brian Jones, the

QuoteHis Majesty QuoteHMS They would have ended up sounding like THE ROLLING STONES. At the end it´s all Keith n Mick. Another drummer, bass player, guitarplayer would have only slightly affected the sound of the band. The songs would have been the same anyway, since they are all written by Jagger/Richards.

QuoteOlly If not, what is the thought process? That Watts is a more accomplished musician than Wyman? That drums are intrinsically more important to the Stones' sound than bass? That it would be impossible to mimic or improve Watts' sound? If it had been Watts who departed in 1993 instead of Wyman, I'm confident the Stones would have continued. Your thoughts, p
