Unlike his ex-Rolling Stones buddies, Mick Taylor never associated fame with talent nor celebrity with artistic merit. His aristocratic attitude & manners obscured the fact that he was the only authentic working class guitar hero of the bunch - largely responsible for the unmistakable Stones' rugged musical elegance. This is more obvious than ever in Mick's 2009 Tokyo concert. Superbly backed by Max Middleton, Jeff Allen, Kuma Harada and Denny Newman, Sir Mick's revisits in grand style his now classic repertoire - check Losing My Faith - as well as tunes of Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan and - play it again Mick! - of the Rolling Stones. The Mick Taylor Band is Mick Taylor (Guitar), Max Middleton (Keyboards), Kuma Harada (Bass), Jeff Allen (Drums), and Denny Newman (Guitar).
