Mick Taylor told Classic Rock Magazine recently that the 2010 sessions for the remastering and bonus tracks on Exile On Main Street made him feel like a Rolling Stone again.


Mick Taylor's impact literally can't be overstated.  He stepped in for Brian Jones after his firing and subsequent death; and played with the Stones from 1969-1974.

Taylor's accomplished licks were a signature on the Exile album, which is widely considered to be not only the Stones' best, but one of the best pure rock & roll albums of all time.

I managed to get a very limited edition 45 rpm vinyl record of the Stones track 'Plundered My Soul' which is an included bonus on the remastered Exile cd.   Mick Taylor added brand new guitar licks to the unfinished track unearthed from the vaults, and Mick Jagger recorded vocals after completing the lyrics to the song.

The result is a virtual time warp back to '72, and sounds like it should have been on the original album.

Taylor says it was thoroughly enjoyable to work with Jagger as they completed the song.

I think it would be incredible if Mick Taylor could join the Rolling Stones on at least a few select tour dates if they hit the road later this year.  He is truly an incredible guitarist, and is sadly overlooked in the history books and articles.   You can read a lot more of Mick Taylor's reminiscences in the new Classic Rock Magazine which is out now.  (via ClassicRockMagazine.com)
