Bill Wyman Records New Song With the Rolling Stones

Bassist Bill Wyman quit  the Stones in 1992 and the Stones never replaced him.

By 2008, he was telling the telegraph he couldn't live on the royalties he got from the Stones and was playing for a band called the Rhythm Kings.

And in 2011, he has recorded a cover of Bob Dylan's "Watching The River Flow" for an Ian Stewart (the 8th, or is it 9th Stone) tribute album.

Wyman was central to one of the, if not the,  great rhythm sections in rock history but his life imploded with stories (true ones)of his sleeping with a fourteen year girlfriend and marrying her when she reached 16 years old.

Bill had enough of the Stones anyway.

But with next year being the Stones 50th anniversary, with Bill being on friendly terms with the band, and with only session players replacing him in the couple of decades since he left, it sure feels like a reunion is possible.

This is what a cource told contactmusic about the recording of the Dylan song: "Charlie and Ronnie were already playing on the album and then Keith recorded his parts in New York, including 'Watching The River Flow'. "This was emailed back to Mick in France and he sent it back with a vocal and harmonica track. Bill also put the bassline on."

The album is called Boogie For Stu and, yes, I have no idea why they would choose Dylan's countryish folk classic.
