    Tetsu was a sweet player...and pestered my Mom for a bass because of his Faces spell. Surely Keith knows why Mick left?..but i do know the Nose Candy was becoming a problem too. Dynamics obviously shift..
    Bill's quote was best:."10 years of playing and 40 years hanging around".
    (Love this- all about the treble..)

    Nai Noswad I am starting to think you have something to do with the music business?.

    Getting back to the stones I read a few lines of a 1980 interview given by Mick Taylor saying that the reason why he left the band was that he wanted to concentrate on writing his own material and then went on to say some musicians are happy playing in a big named band and others wanted to establish themselves in there own right as a musician and a writer which is what he wanted to do or words to that effect?.

    With reference to Tetsu the Free & Faces bass player back in the early 1970s I kind of admire his reason for not being a part of the reformed Faces reunion a few years ago by basically saying that rock music should be performed by younger people and not old guys trying to be young again or words to that effect?.

    No way did i make any attempt to see The Faces with Mick Hucknall or Terence Trent Darby at the mic stand.
    I went to see Mott The Hoople a while back..that was something to behold!
    "Musical Differences" was the tagline when Brian 'left' too in 1969.
    Though to be fair he was not contributing fully and had been a right royal pain in the arse for a few years. He often drove Keith mad in the teen screaming days by playing Popeye The Sailor Man during Heart Of Stone. Is or was being in the Stones the zenith?...i'd find it stifling if i was creative- as my contribution would be morphed under the Glimmer Twins umbrella.
    Seeing the band these days is a bit like visiting Pisa or going to Old Trafford for tourists. They were brutal in Dublin..save for Tumbling Dice and a couple more.
    Love You Live has some nice spots..but tainted with sadness .This album.. and Olympic Studio Engineer Keith Harwood was working on LYL and on the way home after a mixing session crashed into a tree and died...2 weeks later, Marc Bolan perishes at the same spot!
    For Keith Harwood..

    That made me smile the thought of Brian going into 'Popeye The Sailor Man' during Heart Of Stone and Keith glaring at him!.

    Yeah Keith Harwood I often always read all the album credits including who was the producer and engineer on albums.

    As previously posted with regards to the Love You Live album I would have preferred the whole album being taken from a USA stadium concert rather than a mixture of tracks recorded from the US and others from Europe and I would have 'dropped' the Canadian club gig but that's just me.
