*Pardon my ignorance, but who's Mickey Taylor?*

Is this... THE Mick Taylor? Former Bluesbreaker & Rolling Stone..... guitarist extraordinare?

For many(like me ), their favorite period w/ The Stones was when he was playin'..... before he quit.

Which calls for a b&p from my end in the near future...

Ronnie

If in all seriousness.....

Mick Taylor was the lead guitarist in the Rolling Stones between June 69 and Dec 74, some of the finest blues and rock leads known to man. He had replaced Peter Green in the Bluesbreakers, and Mayall used to introduce him as "the lovely Mickey Taylor" due to his youth....born in 1948, so he was 21 when he hooked up with Jagger et al

Still plays a mean guitar and constantly working....was once declared the first person to leave the Stones while alive

Cheers

Ronnie, he made no appearances on Beggars, but does on 2? tracks on Bleed, Country Honk, and I forgot the other one.

He also did some stellar work with Mayall, wonderful vibrato and slide guitar influenced by Tampa Red, Earl Hooker, and Robert Nighthawk....

I was being serious. I'm not a huge Stones fan. The only 2 albums I have are the ones I listed above. I always assumed Keith was the lead guitarist in the Stones. I am familiar with Sticky Fingers and Can't You Hear Me Knocking, though I don't own the album. That's probably my favorite Stones song. You learn something new everyday! I will definitely try to make it to the Stanhope House. Derek's Town Hall show is the following night, so I might as well make a whole weekend out of it.

Wasn't he supposed to some sort of musical prodigy or something? Like, leave him alone with any instrument for a couple of hours and he'd be playing it reasonably well . . . I remember hearing that somewhere.

Keith is probably the best rhythm player in rock. The stones don't really have
a tradition lead player. It is more of a two guitar attack. The other
guitar player really plays off what Keith is doing. I think both
Mick Taylor and Ronnie Woods play off Keith really well.

When Mick Taylor quit the job was between Nils Lofgren and Ronnie Wood to
replace him. Being English, Ronnie just fit in better. Nils went on to play with
Neil Young and Springsteen.

Peace
John

Actually, when Mick Taylor left the Stones the job very nearly went to Muscle Shoals session ace Wayne Perkins. The Stones publicist and management even announced Wayne as the replacement in a press conference. Another player named Harvey Mandel was in the running also. With all due respect to Ron Wood, Wayne Perkins is twice the player that he is. There was a concern by the band to have all members be English at the time. I guess they waved that rule when they met another Alabama boy named Chuck Leavell.

Clapton was offered the job both times it came up.He turned down the first time due to the impending death of Cream and his plans for Blind Faith.The second time he turned it down because................well who knows what he was thinking.I think Clapton spent most of '75 looking for the bottom of a burbon bottle.

I always thought Clapton and Keith would be an interesting combo.

Peter Frampton was also in the running when Taylor left-Bill Wyman wanted him to join.

I didn't think Clapton was a serious contender for the lead guitar role, at least not the first time round - Mick Taylor made his first appearance with the band in Hyde Park July '69, by which time Blind Faith had already recorded their album and made their live debut, also in Hyde Park, the previous month.

There is a circulating studio outtake of Brown Sugar, with Clapton on slide guitar, which always lent credence to that story - this, however, was recorded in December 1970, 18 months after Mick Taylor joined the band and a full 12 months after the definitive version was recorded (as appearing on Sticky Fingers); as far as I am aware, the Clapton take was nothing more than a studio jam.

Incidentally, if anyone has the Clapton version, I'd love to hear it!

Check out Mick's ''Stranger In This Town'' release from the mid 90's - it's excellent.

"I always thought Clapton and Keith would be an interesting combo"
------Is the only time those two worked together on the Rollling Stones Circus show of Dec 68? KR plays bass while EC and Lennon play guitar....one of the funniest scenes if you have the video......Clapton and KR exchange great glances as Yoko Ono screams and Lennon looks on lovingly

"There is a circulating studio outtake of Brown Sugar, with Clapton on slide guitar, which always lent credence to that story - this, however, was recorded in December 1970, 18 months after Mick Taylor joined the band and a full 12 months after the definitive version was recorded (as appearing on Sticky Fingers); as far as I am aware, the Clapton take was nothing more than a studio jam."
------Actually, that was a tribute to KR on his birthday with EC on slide, and it did make it on to the Spanish version of Fingers....the Spanish authorities found the Warhol cover too risque, so the Stones settled on a set of supposedly bloody/sticky fingers coming out of a just openned and ragged edge can. I finally did find that version of BS on P2P.....the horror, the horror

Unfortunately, I've only seen Taylor live once - and that was when he guested at a Stones show in Kansas City in 1981!

Keef's birthday, eh? I'd heard it was one of the band's, but wasn't sure which one - I'll wager THAT was a good party!

In view of the circumstances of it's recording, I take it that version of Brown Sugar falls into the category of "historical curio only"?? Think I'll take back my previous enthusiasm then!

So far as EC/Stones appearances are concerned, I've got a feeling EC showed up on a few dates of the '89 Steel Wheels tour - pretty certain there's pics of this available, in the Clapton Visual Documentary book though, as I'm at work at the moment, I'll leave it to someone else to confirm/deny this fact! (ABBDutchfan?)

Used to have a copy of that Steel Wheels Pay-Per-View show from Atlantic City (12/19/89, if memory serves) on VHS - one of many I lost in a fire about eight years ago. Clapton guested on "Little Red Rooster" during that show. (The show also featured guest spots by John Lee Hooker on "Boogie Chillen" and Axl Rose on "Salt Of The Earth". Hey, the memory works a bit after all!)

From the old Jack Bruce Band gigs they did. It's why Mick quit The Stones, among other things. That group didn't last long either, b/c Bruce jumped ship for Tony Williams' Lifetime.

Re: the replacement for Mick theory, I am beginning to think the whole Roy Buchanan thing maybe rock & roll BS.
