Happy Birthday Bill Wyman!

Bill Wyman the former bass player for the Rolling Stones turns 78 today! The bass player for a lot of classic Stones songs and paired with Charlie Watts half of a monster rhythm section in Rock and Roll.

Yes it is a great excuse for me to post and listen to some classic Rolling Stones songs. However, I will try to dig deeper and find some gems from the Stones and beyond.

Starting off with this cover of "Green River" which features Bill's current project Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings plus a couple of friends with Peter Frampton and Albert Lee..

Bill Wyman in his own words on a recent interview...

Here is a clip from 1969 performing "Gimme Shelter"

Here he rejoins his old band as a guest...

Here is a song he did solo in 1982 called "Ride on Baby"

Hope you enjoyed the music! Happy Birthday Bill Wyman!
