Shoulda just hired a bass player, had Mac and Woody share the vocals (Mac is an excellent singer) and played big clubs/small theatres. Without Rod, the big draw simply isnt there.

Not forgetting that, on paper anyways, collaborating with a musician of the stature of Jack Bruce may have looked far more stimulating and challenging musically for Taylor. As it turned out, Jack wasnt really looking for a collaborator after all. The results were underwhelming....

The push/pull between the drums and guitar on the intro is sublime- Keith and Woody have always dumbed that part waaay down when they play it live. Too bad, its a classic.

Not forgetting that Steve Marriott was Keiths first choice to replace Mick Taylor- or that Brian Jones expressed interest in joining the newly formed Humble Pie but croaked before he could hook up. Never lost his ability to play and sing but drink and drugs stopped Marriott from writing top shelf material and consequently the Pie are remembered if at all as the poor mans Led Zeppelin.

Obviously Im a huge Rory fan- Live in Europe is one of the best live LPs ever-but I dont think he was the right type of ensemble player for The Stones. Keiths first choice, the late great Steve Marriott, would have been very interesting but I suspect that was intended as a poke in the eye to Jagger, since Steve could sing circles around him. No way Jagger would ever let the Mighty Midget in his b

Im sure a few will remember his instrumental Lord of The Rings LP from the early 1970s. Atmospheric Hammond organ psych in an Ummagumma-era Pink Floyd vein. Jimi Hendrix was a big fan and jammed with the 60's organ/drums duo "Hansson and Karlsson" when he was touring Sweden- he also covered Bo's composition "Tax Free". RIP Bo. Maybe some Swedish members can post d

Great post- agreed 100% I always thought the "weaving" concept was hype used to cover for the fact that musical focus was being lost to cringe worthy posing, noodling, and lots of smoke with very little fire. When you listen to gigs from 69-72- when keith takes the lead, Taylor keeps the rhythm going and the sound stays full and fat. Not just random stabs in between drags off a cigaret

Probably worth a mention that Keiths first choice was Steve Marriott, not Ronnie Wood. Marriott and Richards sound like a lethal combination, literally.

Ronnie Wood hit his prime before he joined the Stones- he was essential to the sound/success of those early Rod Stewart albums and had a killer signature guitar sound with The Faces- not to mention several of his solo LPs which are excellent. He undoubtedly saved the Stones when he joined due to his agreeable personality...not his musical skills. Far more interesting player before he became a R

Certainly this would be no worse than a Woody solo tour which loads of Stones fans would go see- and Mac is a terrific singer- so whats not to like? As for bass player, besdes Tetsu((out of the question), theres Rick Wills who was in Small Faces MKII with Steve Marriott, Kenney and Mac. If youve gotta get a front man, better Paul Rodgers overall than Mick Hucknall (who did a nice job at RAH)..

Mac is a fine singer, does excellent solo shows as does Woody so Im sure it will be good- especially with Bill on bass and Kenney Jones on drums. Id forego the guest vocalists. Hope they rehearse a couple times... What the hell is wrong with Rod? I cant understand why he wont even do a one nighter with the "lads".

Micks a superb natural player and a nice fella (met him back in the 90's) but he hasnt seemed really committed to his career in a long long time. Every so often, his profile would go up with a Dylan or Mayall tour and then nothing. The last time I checked he was still playing the same live set he'd been doing for years and years frequently in some real dives. His first solo LP was absol

According to sources within the Stones camp who actually attended the auditions, Steve Marriott was Keiths stated preference but despite being warned about upstaging Jagger, the Mighty Midget could not contain himself. Frampton on the other hand was Bills suggestion but was never actually auditioned.

Saw 'em at the Cap Center in Largo MD. The review the following day in the Post likened the performance to two drunks staggering out of a bar at closing time arm in arm howling off key at the moon. Pretty fair appraisal but I thought he meant it in a good way...a seriously fun show but definitely not a tight well oiled machine. Mac's backing vocals were a pleasant surprise- didnt kn

Great topic- Ronnie Wood had a really crunchy full powerful sound, particularly in the latter part of the Faces career- which got dialed waaay back with The Stones- a big mistake IMHO. Detroit '74 is a great example and easy to find.

Peter Green Peter Green Peter Green. At the level he played and sang, race was absolutely moot. Check his performance of Jumpin At Shadows on youtube- it dont get any bluer than that and he was a nice Jewish boy from Bethnal Green- about as far from the Delta as you can get.

Thats a great LP- very melodic, polished and immaculately played. Why he doesnt play any of it live (at least when Ive seen him) in favor of treading out the well worn blues standards is a mystery to me. "Broken Hands" and "Leather Jacket" sound like they might be great live....

No dispute- strictly as a singer Steve Marriott totally outclasses Mick Jagger. Hands down, not even close. Very under rated guitarist as well. And definitely could give Mick a run for his money performance-wise. But when it came to high quality song writing and having his head on straight enough to enjoy a very long hugely successful career, Sir Mick takes the prize. Steve ended up rockin ou

Ha- I think he was pulling your leg- the late great Greg Ridley (ex-Spooky Tooth) was The Pie's bassist from Day One until the original lineup split in 1975. Anthony "Sooty" Williams played on the 2 lacklustre 80's LPs (a black chap from New York, definitely not Scottish). Hope you didnt buy him a drink... Supposedly Brian Jones, a pal of Marriotts, was interested in joi

Some very well written reviews- thanks guys- sad to hear but hardly surprising. Prepare to get flamed by the usual "in denial" Taylor devotees who bristle at any suggestion that for all his nayural ability to play the guitar, Taylor is often unfocused, seemingly intoxicated and unprofessional.

Looks a little like Alfred Hitchcock Junior these days but if anyone has ever played better slow blues than "Jumpin At Shadows", I havent heard it. Wouldnt want to. It'd drive ya right outta your ever lovin' mind....like it done to JR.
