    Read somewhere that Bill Wyman was playing the few shows they were doing. He's not exactly a "new" bass player. Why no Darryl Jones?

    Oh dude it'd be so great if Bill Wyman came out with that old fretless bass he used in the early days. I hope he sticks around all tour.

    If not, just call Paul McCartney.

    Darryl resigned? I can't find anything about that.

    Looks like Darryl:

    They have Bill coming out for a few songs, not the entire show. Mick Taylor is also joining in.

    Rob,

    What is your source? I can't find any information about it. I can't imagine Darryl quitting the Stones. Although I've always thought it was a bit disrespectful that after being in the band this long, he is still not officially considered a Rolling Stone. Ronnie Wood wasn't an original member either...

    I read the Rolling Stone review of the London O2 Arena gig, and they clearly mentioned Darryl Jones and Chuck Leavell as sideman playing with the Stones on that show. The article also went on to mention that in portions of the show Bill Wyman sat in on bass, and Mick Taylor sat in on guitar.

    From everything I've read about the 50th Anniversary, the Stones are only doing a select few dates in the London and New York markets. It's not clear that Wyman or Taylor will be sitting in on all of those dates.

    And regarding Darryl's sideman status? I don't see that as disrespectful at all. If you're going down that road, then what about Chuck Leavell? He's put in more time with the Stones than Darryl, going back as far as 1982. Darryl didn't get the Stones gig until 1993 when Wyman left the band.

    I would include Chuck Leavell in there as well. I just focus on DJ because he is the bass player (and I'm a bass player), and this thread is about DJ. I might have to even mention Ian Stewart in that mix. I don't really see them as hired guns anymore, I think of them as an integral part of the band (not Stewart anymore, obviously). Going on 20 years for Dj and 30 years for Leavell, I think it would be cool to see them in some of the publicity photos. Just my opinion, I'm sure both those guys are pretty happy where they are at.

    Actually, Keith Richards tried talking Paul into doing some kind of project together, maybe two or so years ago. Paul said he told Keith "you know, we're getting into some dangerous territory here" but he meant it in a good way.

    It would never happen, but I think the results would be pretty good, even if all they did was to record a few songs together and nothing more.
