Got it thanks.
I’ll duck after this. I thing R. W. is as good if not better than Keef. He holds the songs down so K. R. can do his chord stabs, and the entertaining rock star poses. His solo efforts are definitely better than Keith’s. He may not be as entertaining, but he is what holds the songs together. The music comes first. Look at his contribution in The Jeff Beck Group, he went as far as being a bass player. Way to take one for the team. My favorite Stone. So am I banished from the tribe?
Ron Wood rules!
The first amp looks like a BF Bassman head converted into a 2-12 combo amp, which would be a killer amp.
I got to see Rod Stewart w the Faces including Ron Wood in the late 70s before Rod went solo, they were great and Ronnie Wood rocked! I don’t think he would have been in The Rolling Stones as long as he has if he wasn’t as good as he is!
Playing bass is “taking one for the team”?
Joke...I knew somebody would bite.
I understand, but I didn't think this was a 'fan' thread so I didn't think there was any reason to not state an opinion.
I appreciate people trying to share and politely 'educate' me with YouTube clips, etc.....but I'm still of the same opinion.
And, yes, I did watch and listen to some of it
Competent, nice guy, has a lot of history and significance to a whole generation. Contributed to a lot of good music.
I just don't find him very outstanding or special as a guitar player. Sorry if that offends anyone. We will just have to agree to disagree if it does.
(I'm getting really fed up with this 'don't offend anyone' business, particularly when it stifles free thinking and free speech. If someone finds my 'incorrect' opinion offensive......tough. I'm not telling anyone else what to think or say.)
(That isn't meant directly at you J, btw. It's just a general rant...)
I am a big fan of the Stones and was left puzzled with Ron's performance in some of the live shows, say 10 years ago or so, including the "Shine a light" documentary by Scorsese. I thought his playing was pretty sloppy and nothing special, really. But listening to the earlier stuff left me with much appreciation towards him. Did you also notice that he had a seriously 'off' period some time ago?
I was meaning he is no Satriani
That's right of course and I'm glad it's so.
would be like someone who talks too fast and way too much
To lighten the mood a touch - Roland Micro Cube, the busker's friend... Valencia in 2013
I’ve never tried one and, as I have my little Yammie THR which also has the battery option, I don’t need to.
Cubes are the are often the busker’s choice in London. They must be pretty poor right now, poor people.
I expect that must be the case. Though I lived in London for four years, I live in a more rural neighbourhood nowadays, so we don't get buskers here. However with Covid-19 I haven't even been to nearby Macclesfield for a couple of months, where the familar cross-legged regular with his bucket hat and battered acoustic will likely be playing to an absent audience - hope he's managing!
Right before/as he hit bottom.
Massive drinking problem.
Watch Ole ! Ole ! Ole ! and the live Sticky Fingers from LA for the sober/revitalized Ronnie.
the understated and perfectly placed Ron Wood guitar solo on Rod Stewart's 'Maggie May' would be enough to earn a guitar player a ticket to MY Hall of Fame.
The brilliant guitar work on the Rolling Stones' studio recording of 'Beast of Burden' would be more than enough, too.
The guy (mnaicck) who made this Youtube video understands the role of the guitar, and the subtlety of Woodie's touch.
He had cancer a while back...
Ya....there is that. I like that.
@Mike Eskimo - Wrong! They would have been way, way better! Ron doesn't feel the need to noodle over the vocals the whole time.
There, now I said it.
OK, that's good enough... we're all friends again!
I'm not much of a Keith Richards fan...I get it!
