Mick Taylor replaced Brian Jones and Ron Wood replaced Mick Taylor but Brian couldn’t make it for obvious reasons so it is left to Wood and Taylor to represent the fifth wheels in rock and rolls greatest band at the tiny the Cutting Room on November 8th and 9th at 1030p.
Sounds like fun? Well, an instantaneous sell out at the $50 – $150 ticket price range, it is currently changing hands at $600 a pop and only FOUR left on Saturday (day two).
Look, these two master guitarist might be worth it alone but the world is alive with the sound of wishful thinkers wondering if the other Mick and Keef are gonna make a showing. Keef maybe if he’s in town and the mood takes him. Jagger, nah. I can’t see it. A friend of mine with more inside dope on this says Bernard Fowler, Steve Jordan, Lisa Fischer… I would add Bobby Keys but who knows right?
Incidentally, reminds me of a story Dave Edmund tells (stop me if you’ve heard it before) of Rockpile at the Bottom Line happy to have the great Keith Richards on stage to join em for a song. But he is very drunk, won’t leave and can’t play. So they unplugged his guitar and left him in the corner till he fell asleep.
I saw Mick Taylor at the Bottom Line years ago and he blew me away and I’ve never seen Ron solo but would love to (though I’d prefer to see him with the Faces –even if Rod wasn’t taking lead vocals) still $600 is a little hefty.
Any bets as to who shows up?
