The Ronnie Wood Band's finale at BluesFest in London next month will include an appearance by Mick Taylor, who held down the guitar-player role in the Rolling Stone before Wood replaced him in 1975. Wood and group will pay tribute to the late Jimmy Reed during their Nov. 1 set at the Royal Albert Hall, where BluesFest runs from Oct. 29-Nov. 1.
Seemingly everyone with a valid record contract joined the Rolling Stones onstage last night ( Dec. 15) for the final concert of their 2012 mini-tour, including Bruce Springsteen, former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, the Black Keys, Lady Gaga and several others.
Former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor turned 63 on Tuesday. He was born on January 17, 1949 in Welwyn Garden City, England.
His skill as a musician landed him a gig with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers at the tender age of 17, but his big break came in 1969 when he joined The Rolling Stones, replacing Brian Jones.
