Those that had the lucky opportunity to see Mr. Bill Wyman play with the Rolling Stones when they did their 50th anniversary show last year at London’s O2 arena will be the last to see the bass player jam with the band. Bill Wyman played with the Rolling Stones from 1962 until 1993.
“They’d asked me the December before, and I had to jam with them for three days. I was under the impression I was going to get really involved, but when it came to it, they only wanted me to do two songs, which was very disappointing.”
As promised, many celebrities have joined the Rolling Stones on stage as their 50th anniversary tour continues through North America. So far, Keith Urban, Gwen Stefani, and Katy Perry have all shared the stage. Former guitarist Mick Taylor is along for the ride and is being promoted as a guest on ALL shows during this tour. Looks like Bill Wyman wasn’t so lucky.
“I’ve always maintained that you can’t go back to things, and they can never be the same... It doesn’t work. It was a one-off. Five minutes. OK, never again. No regrets, we’re still great friends.”
The Rolling Stones are coming to Chicago for 3 nights at the United Center starting on May 28th. You can win tickets all week long with the LOOP’s “Two in a Row Means Two for the Show” during the morning editions of the 97@9.
