Mick Taylor: Why I Left The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones: Why Mick Taylor Had To Go

The Day Mick Taylor Quit the Rolling Stones

«I was a bit peeved about not getting credit for a couple of songs, but that wasn’t the whole reason [I left the band]. I guess I just felt like I had enough. I decided to leave and start a group with Jack Bruce. I never really felt, and I don’t know why, but I never felt I was gonna stay with the Stones forever, even right from the beginning»

— Mick Taylor, in an interview with Gary James

«We used to fight and argue all the time. And one of the things I got angry about was that Mick had promised to give me some credit for some of the songs – and he didn’t. I believed I’d contributed enough. Let’s put it this way – without my contribution those songs would not have existed. There’s not many but enough, things like «Sway» and «Moonlight Mile» on Sticky Fingers and a couple of others».

— Mick Taylor, in a 1997 interview with Mojo magazine

«Mick Taylor is one of the most underrated Guitar Players in Rock & Roll !

«Mick Taylor made the Stones a better band with his melodic chords , soulful solo’s , cat was spot on ! When Brian Jones sunk deeper into the demons of drug addiction the glimmer twins recruited a young blues virtuoso from John Mayall’s Blues Breakers. When SWAY was recorded Keith Richards was nowhere to be found so Taylor laid down all the guitar tracks but Taylor never received songwriting credits. Taylor was never accepted into the inner circle the band belonged to the Glimmer twins. Taylor also looked around at the condition of the band members who were all strung out on drugs and thought the band would implode,Taylor also was strung out on drugs. Then he listened to his ex-wife who told him to quit so Taylor quit the Stones and attempted to form a supergroup with ex -Cream bassist Jack Bruce which fizzled ! Meanwhile the Stones replaced Taylor with a sloppy guitar player who couldn’t string Mick Taylor’s Guitars !

«At the wee age of 20 years old, guitarist Mick Taylor (of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers fame) replaced Brian Jones, in what as that time the greatest rock and roll band in the world– the Rolling Stones. Well the best was yet to come, as they went on to record the epic musical masterpieces– Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street.

«Then suddenly in ’74, Mick dropped out. Some say he was kicked out– but Taylor simply had enough of the chaos, drugs, and strain that came with being in the Stones. Had he stayed, Taylor adamantly believes that the Stones’ life of debauchery would have killed him.
The one thing no one argues, not even the Stone’s themselves, is that Mick Taylor’s musical prowess far surpassed that of his former band mates. His fluid and bluesy guitar work held the group together through many of Richards’ drug and alcohol binges. The irony is that many fans unwittingly attribute much of Mick Taylor’s picking on countless Stones’ classics from ’69-’74 to guitar frontman, Keith Richards.

«Back in ’82, the Stone’s management cut-off royalties due to Taylor for his work with the band– essentially screwing him. Adding insult to injury, they threw this tasty gem in the recently released documentary «Stones in Exile»–

Bassist Bill Wyman declares, «Musically he (Mick Taylor) was a better musician than the other guys in the band. Some of the things he did was amazing but he was incredibly boring onstage. He’d do the most amazing licks, riffs and solos but he’d just stand there and look at his guitar. God, the audience would see the top of his head all the time. I always thought he could’ve been a bit more… but then I’m not a good one to talk. I don’t leap about much. In 30 years with The Stones I’ve probably made three steps on the stage.»

TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE
(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Yes, star crossed in pleasure the stream flows on by
Yes, as we’re sated in leisure, we watch it fly
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me
Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman’s face
Hours are like diamonds, don’t let them waste
Time waits for no one, no favours has he
Time waits for no one, and he won’t wait for me
Men, they build towers to their passing yes, to their fame everlasting
Here he comes chopping and reaping, hear him laugh at their cheating
And time waits for no man, and it won’t wait for me
Yes, time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me
Drink in your summer, gather your corn
The dreams of the night time will vanish by dawn
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me
No no no, not for me…
