All the while touring with the Stones, taking drugs, drinking, smoking, painting and hanging out with the World's top Rock musicians.....now, what did Mick Taylor ever do once he crawled away from the Stones because he couldn't hack it?

QuoteHMS I think hardly anyone outside the Stones-fanbase is interested in what Ron Wood is doing. Even most Stones fans aren´t much interested in his solo efforts. His songwriting and his singing voice IMO aren´t good enough for a career as a solo-artist. That´s one thing (maybe the only thing) he has in common with Mick Taylor. He can actually sing a lot better than Mick Taylor....and writes

Love Ronnie's solo works...way way better than anything Keith produced and I won't even mention Jagger's feeble attempts (well there were a couple of good tracks on Wandering Spirit to be fair). I regularly listen to Now Look, and I've Got my Own ALbum and Slide on this, is a superb album....some of the songs on these recordings are masterpieces of groove and melody.

I think Charlie is the only one who doesn;t have a licence. Pretty sure Keith got his back in the 70s as it wasn;t listed as one of the offences when he crashed the Bentley into a ditch.

These guys are well past their sell by dates when it comes to writing new music and the worrying thing is that they are surrounded by people saying how fantastic they are and inflating their egos. Musically they can still play well, they haven't got that hungry drug and booze fuelled drive that they once had, but that is to be expected, they are multi millionaires living in the kind of luxu

Perhaps it's best not to have an album of 'new' material...they pulled it off with B&L and that was because they picked classic blues songs and whilst they obviously couldn;t improve on the originals, they managed to do some acceptable covers. I seriously doubt that they could write a new album's worth of good material and the likely outcome will be some bad pop/rock

Certainly better than ABB, but that's not a high level to set the bar and quite frankly a cat farting in a bucket would have been better than ABB. They've covered the songs well, but millionaires singing the blues just doesn't seem to work as well as 6 hungry lads from London learning a craft did. Perhaps that's little unfair in comparison, but I always wanted a blues al

It's simple, they systematically ruined it. It peaked on Ya Ya's and was acceptable on Love you Live, but since then it has gradually lost any of its dangerousness and today we find it mid set, kicked off with a jaded drum loop, Chuck plinking and plonking and injecting more cheese than a cheesy cheese shop in Bavaria. The key guitar riff has just about gone, those beautiful hammer ons

I thought it was a well made, interesting and thought provoking documentary with some wonderful moments throughout. I kind of get a bit bored of watching them on TV slogging out Satisfaction or It's Only RnR, but the bits in between the on stage clips were great and the whole build up tot he Cuba show was nicely put together. For me, these days, you have to be at a Stones show to enjoy

Great effort...playing Stones songs is harder to do than some imagine and to say you didn't have much rehearsal time that's impressive.

Sad news and as so many of you have said, we've lost another of those giants of rock music. Back in the mid 70s when I was a teenager, I had a great poster of Leon in his top hat and long sleeved t shirt with the stars on it. His work on Mad Dogs and concert for Bangladesh stand out but I have a boot (can't recall the name) of the Mad Dogs tour and that is simply sublime. RIP Leon

As a rule people are not lucky to be thin and its actually annoying to thin people to hear people claim that. People try to make that claim all the time. I would guess that he and Jagger understand that a fat rock star is not a good look so

Quotetriceratops The Stones on tour are a lot larger and a lot more than Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie who don't need the money. Their tours provide paychecks for at least one hundred other people. I promise you all of them were pulling for that rumored Massachussets show to come through. I promise you none of them care where The Stones play as long as they can do a fair and good job and

There's something about these 'private' paid for shows that makes me feel uneasy...for me the Stones stood for the exact opposite of this elitism. But at the same time, if someone I know said, do you want to go to see a Stones private gig, I'd be there in a shot! It will become concerning when they cease to play to large audiences and do more of these sort of private gigs

From Les Abbatoirs 1976 to Glastonbury 2016 with many sprinkled in between including Roundhay Park in 82, and then at least one in every European tour. Small scale compared to some of the other posters on here who astound me with the sheer numbers of shows they have managed to get to. I like to think I grabbed some of their great performances and seeing the New Barbarians at Knebworth as a supp

I'm afraid once Bill left the band, it was never the same band sound wise. It lurched from the true Stones sound to what I call the vegas sound. Bill came from the same roots as Mick, Keith and Charlie...sleepy London Town in the 50s and 60s, he paid his dues on the road, the years of touring small venues in both the UK and US. They crafted the songs together each throwing his part into the

I've enjoyed reading through the first hand accounts of those who were there, and the official reviews and it supports what I posted earlier. Being at the gig is a very different experience to watching badly recorded YouTube clips that may only pick up one sound stack or just a bland generalised sound.
