|Mick (no, not that one) and Keef|
The Stones guitarist from 1969 to 1974, described ,by Keith himself no less, as the best guitarist ever to play in the band and my own personal favourite looked like he had never been away as he joined for Midnight Rambler and stayed and played through the rest of the set.
Keith describes the band as a pirate nation in his autobiography and seeing them last night must have scared the shit out of several of the younger members of the audience. These men may have been a danger to your daughters in their younger days but now they have aged into the type of rhythm and blues musicians they had admired back in 1962 when the band set out on its long voyage around Planet Rock. Taylor has always been the musicians musician and his period in the band coincided (not surprisingly) with their most fertile recording period that included the albums Let It Bleed, Stick Fingers, Exile on Main Street and It's Only Rock n' Roll - the bands most famous quartet of albums.
Anyway that was then and this was then and after the disappointment of the British and Irish Lions losing, Cav not winning the opening stage at the Tour and Lewis Hamilton getting pole but looking like he'd finished last in British Grand Prix qualifying it was a great end to the weekend's televisual spectacle.
