    I just finished listening to Sticky Fingers and now I know that it's Mick's B-Day. He played on Goat's Head Soup as well, right? Well, this is my favorite:

    Mick’s solos on Dance Little Sister and Heartbreaker (do do do do do) are absolute perfection, both taking the songs to a higher level. Well done, sir!

    That album's guitar work, It's Only Rock and Roll, ( and the whole band) is off the hook good!

    Dance Little Sister - that bridge before Mick's solo and THEN that solo is just the BEST Rock & Roll you can make!

    * Vibrato is so scary good!

    Mick has a vibrato like Danny Kirwin...intensely wide yet in tune. How do they do that?

    I LOVE MICK TAYLOR!!
    LOVE in VAIN

    listen to both solos, (before and after vocals) this is so good I tear up at how good Mick plays and sounds here.

    * one the best Les Paul tones you will ever hear, IMO

    I never knew till just now that he's got the same birthday as myself!

    Happy birthday Mick Taylor (due to time zone differences, mine has already snuck past)

    Interesting clip from an interview done right after Mick left the Stones.

    Wish I could play with Mick's tone. This little gem is so perfect and tasteful.

    Mick says this is the best solo he played with The Stones.

    July 5th, 1969...The Stones hadn't played live since 1967 and their new 20 year old guitarist was a bit nervous doing his first gig with them. Brian Jones had died two days before...these were big shoes he was filling.



    I've read many interviews with Keith where he referred to his musical relationship with Mick Taylor as very defined-Mick would play lead and he'd play rhythm and that he preferred Ronnie Wood because it was more of a trade off where they would bounce off of each other...

    blah, blah...

    I think Keith was a little bit jealous of Mick's guitar playing.
