Bill Wyman Reveals Mick Taylor Was 'Incredibly Boring Onstage'

Bill Wyman

In The Rolling Stones' new documentary 'Stones in Exile', Wyman says that the former member of the band was 'a better musician than the other guys' but had no stage presence.

Bill Wyman has spoken out about his dynamic with another former The Rolling Stones star, Mick Taylor, for the group's new documentary "Stones in Exile". The bass player admits Taylor was a genius guitarist, but he had no stage presence.

Wyman says, "Musically he (Taylor) was a better musician than the other guys in the band. Some of the things he did was amazing but he was incredibly boring onstage. He'd do the most amazing licks, riffs and solos but he'd just stand there and look at his guitar."

"God, the audience would see the top of his head all the time. I always thought he could've been a bit more... but then I'm not a good one to talk. I don't leap about much. In 30 years with The Stones I've probably made three steps on the stage."

    Brilliant comment coming from a man with all the stage presence of a corpse. I thought this was an Onion reprint when I first saw it. Not enough to be a genius guitarist, you've got to wiggle that bootie too? Wyman, retire to your scrapbooks.
