By mistake I was trying to put the messages about the CD in the thread about the tribute album and the messages about the show in the thread about that historic reunion but I (voodoo) made a big fuck up and now both threads are the same

What the fuck?

Sorry

Fuck you Gazza, Will ya?

Thats what I think too. Although it could be that it was a 'session' instead.

Walking by the tube yesterday, I heard "which rock band has a fans who's members are known as Shidobee's" or question to that effect.  It was on Millionaire with Meredith Viera.  Pretty cool.  Rotund loser contestant took a pass on the answer.  He says "I've heard that song, oh God, who could it be?"  Back to the tacos, chump....

Rolling Stones reunite with Bill Wyman in the studio

The Rolling Stones have reunited with their former bassist Bill Wyman to record a tribute song in honour of their late pianist Ian Stewart.

The song, a cover of Bob Dylan's 'Watching The River Flow', is set to be included on a tribute album for Stewart, who died of a heart attack in 1985. He had played and recorded with the band since their inception in 1962.

Fansite Iorr.org reports that the Dylan cover features "all Rolling Stones members including Bill Wyman". Original member Wyman left The Rolling Stones in 1992.

The album, which is called 'Boogie For Stu', has been helmed by pianist Ben Waters. It also features a contribution from his cousin, PJ Harvey, reports Spinnermusic.co.uk.

Waters has previously confirmed that Keith Richards plays on three tracks on the album, which is out in March.

Surprise, surprise - Mick and Keith didnt spend any time together working on it. Keith did his part in New York and Mick in the south of France via pro tools.

I'm pretty sure the details of the two 'Boogie for Stu' tribute gigs at the Ambassadors Theatre in London on 9th March were mentioned elsewhere, but I'm damned if I can see 'em.

Anyway, for anyone who's interested, the tickets (priced - £50 - £100) went on sale today from this site :

Charlie is confirmed to be appearing. Intriguingly, there is the inevitable tease of 'very special guests'...

according to this article, -     http://img.barks.jp/image/review/1000067808/300.jpg -  the release date now seems to be 11th April

Full personnel is now available :

Ben Waters :- Boogie 4 Stu , Tribute album to Stones pianist and stalwart Ian Stewart, featuring host of stars
Tribute album to Stones pianist and stalwart Ian Stewart, featuring host of stars

Eagle Records is delighted to release Boogie 4 Stu on 11 April 2011 [Cat. No. ]. The album is in tribute to pianist Ian Stewart, a founding member of the Rolling Stones, who went on to serve as their long-term road manager. Boogie 4 Stu was dreamt up and produced by fellow pianist Ben Waters, a member The A, B, C and D of Boogie Woogie, which also features Charlie Watts. The album is released to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation, and is released near the 25th anniversary of Stewart’s death. The album is mixed by Glyn Johns and the front cover is a newly commissioned portrait of Ian Stewart by Sir Peter Blake.

Initially planned by Waters as a solo album, Boogie 4 Stu soon took on a life of its own. When I told Charlie Watts that I was going to record the album, he asked to be on it. I asked Jools Holland if I could hire his studio. He said ‘No’, but that I could have it for free and that he would like to play on the album too, as Ian was a mate. Letters to other friends and former colleagues of Stu outlining the project elicited the simple response, Where do we need to be and when? Ben Waters, of course, plays on every track and is joined on one by his cousin PJ Harvey. Waters says, Everyone who is on the ‘Boogie 4 Stu’ album knew Ian Stewart really well, in fact most told me that he was their best mate! Despite this I felt many music fans need an introduction to the man and his music. To some he was a roadie that played a bit of piano, to his friends and fans the opposite was true. Most of the music on the album was laid down live, after no more than a couple of takes, and the atmosphere in the studio was fantastic.

The album highlight for many will be the version of Bob Dylan’s song Watchin’ The River Flow. This features Mick Jagger on vocals & harmonica, Keith Richards on guitar, Charlie Watts on drums, Ronnie Wood on guitar and Bill Wyman on bass.It’s the first time Wyman has recorded with his former colleagues since 1992. As well as his work with the Rolling Stones, Ian Stewart played with a host of other talents including Led Zeppelin [this album is named after their track ‘Boogie With Stu’], Howlin’ Wolf, The Yardbirds, his own band Rocket88 and more. Keith Richards said, Ian Stewart. I’m still working for him. To me the Rolling Stones is his band. Without his knowledge and organization … we’d be nowhere.

As a kid starting out in music, Waters learnt to play in Ian Stewart’s style, whom he saw perform at an event organized by his family. He had a collection of cine footage featuring Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis, I got access to those, and learned more by playing along. Some of his own performances were there too including the Montreux Jazz Festival. I love his style. No one else played like him, he was unique. Waters went on to join Stewart’s former band Rocket 88 and, of course, to play with Charlie Watts, so it seems that Ian Stewart has never been far away. I played with a band in Dorset with Hamish Maxwell [also on this album], who is exactly 40 years older than me, and it turned out he’d been Ian’s best man!

The evolution of Boogie 4 Stu from solo tribute to an album featuring some of the incredible talent that Ian Stewart came into orbit with has been amazing. There are two shows booked in at the Ambassador’s Theatre in London on March 9th. These will feature The A,B,C & D Of Boogie Woogie as the house band, with Jools Holland hosting and various special guest appearances.

The album finishes with the Sam Cooke track ‘Bring It On Home’, performed by Ian Stewart with Rocket 88 at the Montreux Jazz Festival. As Waters says, Ian Stewart was not a man who liked a fuss, but he would have loved the music on this album, and I wanted him to play it out.

This is excellent! Everyone loved Stu so they surely put their heart and souls into the album. STU's memory is still going strong! I want this record for sure. Is it coming out on vinyl or just CD? I think the trend is both formats for collectors, and/or deluxe editions. I've noticed the vinyl sections are now existing again in the music stores when for years you had to hunt for any vinyl. Nobody was making or buying them but now the new turntables have a cable that goes into your computer to copy it so you dont need to buy both.

I'm sure it probably will be released as a single. Whether it gets into kids ears is another story. But nice to hear that the proceeds go to charity. So it's all for a good cause besides being a nice trubute to Stu.

At least they didnt opt to put some younger "star" on it to push sales.....and apparently were successful in keeping Kid Rock away too!

Kind of a shame. You'd think for a (possible) 50th anniversary (and likely final) tour, the original bassist would be there.
My dream tour would be to have Mick, Keith, Ronnie, Mick Taylor, Bill and Charlie be the band which tours the final tour. It'd feel kind of weird to have Darryl on bass for their final tour.

Why? He's been there for almost two decades. The original guitarist isnt there either, so why the original bassist should be expected to doesnt make sense. How many bands do anything of this nature?

And the Stones havent confirmed it will be their final tour. I'd guess they probably wont either.

Bill doesnt fly. Its totally implausible for him to go on a world tour. Plus, he'll be 76 next year, and there's the small matter of the fact that he's almost certainly not interested.

Yeah but the original guitarist has pretty good reason for not being there. He can't help it. He's dead.

Come on--you think they'd really tour past 2012-2013, maybe 2014 at most? The Stones organization moves very slowly, so you figure let's say this tour stops in 2013, 2014--It'll be 2017 or 2018 by the time they even get around to thinking about another round, and by that time, I think they'd be a tad too old.

Maybe not a world tour, but at least join them as a guest for a select dates at the very least? I haven't kept up with Bill's recent events but doesn't he still tour once in a while with his band?

I think Bill has intimated that he wouldnt mind playing with the Stones again if it was some kind of 'farewell' show.

When I texted from the Rattlesnake Inn at the 02 on the last night that I'd seen him in the backstage area, there was a near meltdown on the forums as quite a few people assumed that this meant it would be the final show.

In a way, I was almost relieved that he didnt join them!

Thats not the point. Everyone assumes it will be their last tour. It probably will and it certainly should be. But the Stones dont and never have even suggested it will be, and have never done so at any tour previously.

Bill tours regularly. But only in Northern Europe. He has NO interest in being in the Stones anymore and doesnt care for their latter day music. Why should he be expected to rejoin them and why should they even encourage it, other than for a couple of cameos?

The only reason Bill is being asked for by us fans is because of the authenticity and nostalgia value, we know he isnt in the band anymore! Same reason we wish Mick Taylor will be asked to join in. We know its not the to recreate the band as it was before, but these guys were vital to the band's success and should be asked out of respect and courtesy, and they deserve to be recognized for their contributions. Plus they are fvcking awesome!  Fuck you Gazza, Will ya?

"Chicago Calling" I love it!!!!! Coincidentally it was the first single in which Nicky Hopkins appears, and his second recording; I have that one, by Cyril Davies with Nicky Hopkins and Carlo Little

From our Nicky Hokins website: Nicky made his first studio recording with Cyril to record "Country Line Special" b/w "Chicago Calling" (Pye International 7N25194) which was released in 1963 with Nicky playing acoustic and electric piano. This is an MP3 and the single image of this treasure, Nicky's first released work.

Four out of six surviving Stones then. Excellent.


However, no doubt it'll be the absence of the other two - assuming they don't appear -  that gets the newspaper headlines and adds more fuel to the flames of gossip.

Unless there are health issues, I honestly can't see a logical reason why either of them shouldn't be there. If they cant do it to honour Stu, then they cant do it for anyone.

Espicially if Taylor and Wyman make the effort. I guess their star power inflated egos are too much for the Glimmers.

It looks like Mick and Keith didn't make it.  That's a shame but doesn't detract from the reason all others have gathered - STU.  It's about him.

from Silver Dagger on IORR :

Just back from the first show. Needless to say it was terrific. First a 20 minute piano boogie session with in turn, Ben, Axel and Jools Holland. Then the sax guys, Don Waller, another guy whose name I should know and Ben's son. Then 10 minutes later Charlie and Dave Green take the stage for a few numbers.

But the highlight was of course getting Ronnie, Mick, Charlie and Bill all on one stage. We got Bill singing You Never Can Tell, Mick Hucknall singing Can I Get A Witness as an encore but sadly without Ronnie and Mick Taylor. Er, even Shakin' Stevens turned up. A wonderful show. Hats off to Matt Lee for getting the tickets.

Thanks for posting the pics!  So jealous - would have loved to be there! 

I suppose there are two schools of thought on the Glimmers showing up: a) Stu was founding member of the Stones and they did the first tribute show so they should be there

b) if they show up then it becomes the grand Stones reunion show and less about Stu, but still it's about Stu


Almost a no win for the Glimmers depending on how one wishes to look at it.

Is the show being taped for release?  Bootleg?

Interesting take Angie. But if Mick can do a tribute to Solomon Burke.he could of done this. I realize maybe their star power overwhelms the event a little bit. But their absence is just as noticeable.

agreed marko - i am speculating  of course but given keith's profund and oft professed admiration and indebtedness to stu i can't help but wonder that something other than " I can't be bothered" is behind is absence

i presume he was invited

as noted on another thread recently his public performances in the last few years have been rare and perfunctory at best

agree with your comment re death of stu and the stones - i still remember the feeling i had when i read the news - a real "day the music died"

Only Mick for the Solomon Burke tribute.  None of the other Stones were there.  And one would think they would have been there.  That's why I think this boils down to an almost no win for the Glimmers.  One factor or the other of the fans is going to complain no matter what they do with this one.

Thanks of posting the videos!  Very Cool!

Mick and Keith are dicks. It shows that they have more in common with each other than the rest of the band. That bullshit speech of Keith at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where he said I work for Ian Stewart was shown for what it was, empty words. These guys are swimming in money and the idea that they couldn't fly to their home country (not some far off place) even for one night is utter crap. People with far less means attend all types of things on the other side of the world. The only way I can see this as forgivable is if either or both of them had a serious reason for not attending. Not liking each other is not a serious reason.

They don't even have to like each other. Looking at the videos and the way this was orchestarted so to speak.They didn't have to do the whole show. They each could of done at least 1 song and not even together. Maybe Keith has an excuse because he hasn't played in so long. But mick has been active recently. Although this wasn't a big nationally televised event. So it wasn't big enough for his ego. Whatever,it sure is fun to see guys who love to just play do it....and if the golden girls don't want to do anything then let's hope these guys find a way to get together and play music some more.

Thanks for the great photos of these smiling and happy guys.  Looks like they were all having a great time celebrating the life of someone who was so vital to their success.

These are so cool, I love seeing Woody & Mick T playing together, it's so great. They had good eye contact and played off each other nicely. Mick T still plays effortlessly. Ronnie's a real musician, he can play with anyone and everyone. Thats what I love about Ronnie, he's humble and not a big rock star ego tripper.

If KEEF couldnt be bothered to show up at least his daughter Angela did! She must of been on the guest list!

Agree completely - and no doubt the tabloids will have a field day with it. And with good reason.

So, Mick can fly 6,000 miles to do a tribute to Solomon Burke, but he can't do a tribute to Ian Stewart in his hometown? Why not? Well, I suppose the ego factor of his performance being seen by 400 million people instead of 400 in a club may JUST have something to do with it? And Keith can fly all the way to London to sign a few books but he can't do the same to even make a cameo appearance as a tribute to the guy who, according to his autobiography, was mainly responsible for bringing the band together in the first place?

They could put aside their differences in 1986 when they performed together as a tribute to Stu. But they cant in 2011? Speaks volumes for what they've both become since Stu died, unfortunately. Fuck me, how difficult could it have been? What a pair of classless prima donnas.


The Stones as a live band basically dont and wont exist unless there's some promoter out there willing to stump up a nine figure sum to entice Mick and Keith to tolerate each other being in the same room for months on end.

I know the show wasn't ABOUT the Stones, and Stu wasn't JUST the band's piano player, so it was good that the music reflected different aspects opf his career. The Stones WERE a part of that and there's really no excuse for them getting together and playing even a couple of songs together as a band.

It sounds like it was still a great night without them and everyone seems to have enjoyed it which is the main thing. I'd have loved to have been able to go. Great to see four of the six surviving band members together, but there'll always be an element of 'what should have been' that will overshadow a memorable evening, unfortunately.

A huge 'well done' to Ben Waters for bringing everyone together and to all the musicians who gave their time to perform.

I would refrain from judging them just yet. I can't help but remember all the sh*t we've been throwing at Keith for his lack of activity in the near past and then it turned out Patti had been sick. I'm not saying it's matter of illness this time too, but I can't rush into conclusions without knowing exactly what happened.

And I think it would be unfair to doubt what Stu meant either to Mick or Keith, just because they didn't attend a gig, even a gig dedicated to him.

Like I said previously, if the absence was health related (be it themselves or someone close) then fair enough. No question about that.

If that isn't the case, it reflects badly on both of them. Sorry, but to me there's no getting around that. It was a tribute to Stu, after all. Not someone they barely knew or hardly ever played with.

There's nothing to suggest that either of them had longstanding prior working commitments that would have clashed with it. Plus they both have residencies and family nearby. Its not as if the gig took place in Japan.

As a fan, it just disappoints me that they will not perform outside of a tour as a band. There have been opportunities in recent years for them to do so, and its ended up as a 'solo' gig or a half-band reunion - the RnR Hall of fame tribute in 1989, Live Aid, The Concert for New York, the 'Ronnie Wood & Fiends' show in London in 2005 - and now you can add last night to it.

The last time they did so? The Stu tribute in 1986. And THAT was a private gig for family and friends. You have to go all the way back to the Stones' surprise appearance at the two CNIB shows in Toronto in 1979 for the last time that they performed a public gig as a band which wasn't part of a tour. There hasnt even been a TV appearance in that time either.

As a fan, I too would like to see them playing live more often, lock themselves in the studio and make some new music, have a better relationship as a band and see the Glimmers growing over their super-inflated egos - I'm with you 100%.

But if we were to see it as a gesture for Stu, I think what they did back in 86 was more important for them and him, than showing up in a public gig. It sure as hell wouldn't hurt if they did, and yes, they could have easily done it - but I just don't think we should rely much on this with regard to what it says about their respect for Stu.

I have to agree with Gazza.
I am very disappointed in them and barring health reasons, SHAME ON YOU MICK AND KEITH for not

Not really, Fotini. I don't see that the two have to be mutually exclusive or that should be a pecking order of importance.

Not a single member of the public outside the band's inner circle saw that 1986 show. No one's asking or expecting them to pull off a 2-hour gig, but throwing fans a few crumbs once in a while by playing a few songs together as a band when a perfect and worthy opportunity presents itself isn't THAT much to ask, I think.

Superb night ! Both shows were fantastic. Bill and Charlie were having a ball. Mick and Ronnie have re- invented weaving.

As soon as they started Worried life Blues,I knew there would be no Keith. As stated above it was unforgivable in my opinion, but to be honest the night may have suffered if we had had a Mick n Keef ego fest.

Real genuine warmth in the room for Stu and the 4 Stones that turned up.

Highlights ;
Can I get a Witness - M Hucknel asking Bill which album it's from !  Grin
Worried Life Blues
Little Queenie

Keef can play the Gram Parsons tribute
Mick pays tribute to Solomon
but the two couldnt be arsed paying tribute to one of the main reasons the Stones rocked.
Im sure Stus family and friends would have loved to seen the glimmers there.

moments like these are to be treasured, im sure the two ladies will one day regret their absence.

Taylor was touring NA with the Alvin Lee Band at the time, and was invited to play at the December 14th show at Kemper Arena in Kansas City MO.

There's a soundboard recording of the show, but MT is kinda buried in the mix.
Apparently he was best heard through the on-stage monitors.

Thanks to all, especially leftie and moy, for the pics and vids.
As usual, Rocks Off has the BEST PHOTOS of Stones events. Bravo!

Thought ya'll might enjoy this as posted by our good friend Stonesdoug http://shidoobeewithstonesdoug.yuku.com/ !

Gives me goosebumps to think of seeing those 4 on stage together. So happy for those that were there.  stu-smiling  really?  taylor made smile  Boring post  Ouch!
__________________________________________________

Martin Elliott's review


We had good seats.  There was a picture slide show prior to the gig with Ian
photos and quotes from colleagues.  The crime writer Ian Rankin came on to
introduce the show.  Born in Fife where Ian came from he must be a Stones
fan hence the title of his compendium of short stories.


Ben Waters started the show alone and was followed by Axel Zwingenberger and
then Jools Holland with Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Dave Green now adding
rhythm.  Boogie-woogie was high on the agenda which you would expect from
previous gigs by the ABCD band.  Ben is in his thirties but has a huge
connection with the boogie and is very well respected.  He has performed for
HRH and at private parties for Mick Jagger plus shows with many many artists
http://www.benwaters.com/ including Shakin' Stevens and Jools Holland.  So the show
rolled along and then the hillbillies joined in - actually Don Wellor and
Willy Garnet (from Ian's band Rocket 88) on saxophone.  A very lucky Tom
Waters (10 years old) also played brass.  Hamish Maxwell performed an early
vocal (he is a UK blues singer from Dorset who has played with Waters
before) and he was followed by Mick Hucknall.  Then the roll turned to rock
as guitars by Ron Wood and Mick Taylor were added.  Despite vowing to sit
politely my rock sap rose and I went front stage right as the atmosphere
definitely heightened.  Worried Life Blues with both guitarist trading licks
and Ron on vocals was an early highlight.  Other rock and roll numbers were
played - Shake, Rattle and Roll plus You Never Can Tell with Bill on vocals
(one of his staple vocal turns).  Don't Lie To Me was sung by Shakin'
Stevens - doesn't he look like Ray Davies?  Down The Road Apiece illustrated
that Mick T and Ron's confidence was high and it struck me at how
effortlessly they worked together with smiles beaming by now from all on
stage.  Ben Waters certainly has a great integrity to harness all this music
power.  We got the highlight for me which was Little Queenie - true rock
boogie.  Some High Heel Sneakers and Can I Get A Witness.  I am not sure of
the whole setlist so apologies.


It was a gig that was unrepeatable and immense in Stones history.  It could
have been made ultra-perfect by the addition of Mick and Keith but unless it
was at the finale I fear it could have ruined a great balanced show full of
high quality musicians either being the band backbone or doing their cameo
performances.  Of course the curtain bow was spectacular as you saw Charlie,
Bill, Ronnie and Mick T all together but they did it in a reserved manner
not wishing to detract from Ben Waters and his other contributors.  If it
wasn't for Ben the whole gig would not have taken place

One of the reasons I skipped this gig (other than the fact that the cheapest seats were £50)  was because I knew Mick and Keith wouldn’t show – I cannot believe some here and on other boards even speculated that they may share a stage. A small London theatre, limited publicity… it’d take a 9/11-style disaster to get them to share a stage outside a lucrative Rolling Stones tour.

From guitarist Martyn Hope's website:

“Boogie For Stu”


...

On Stage with Rolling Stones’ legends


I was lucky enough to be asked by Shaky to join him on stage to perform with Rolling Stones legends (past and present) Ronnie Wood, Charlie Watts, Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman and the ABC&D Band.

The occasion was BOOGIE FOR STU - a charity event organised by the brilliant pianist BEN WATERS to mark the launch of his new album - a tribute to Ian Stewart, founder member of the Stones and pianist for the band. The event took place at the Ambassadors Theatre, in London’s West End.

It was a memorable night for me and such a treat to share guitar playing duties with Ronnie and Mick!  


Hope also posted a video of 'Don't Lie To Me' - www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcrY0lub9RQ

Some very nice MT fretwork...

Nice clips and pictures.  It was a good time with exceptional musicians.  No explosions or posturing - just good music.  The kind Stu would have liked.  I could watch these all day. Smiley  Can't stand the thought of this thread sinking to the bottom.

I like Mick T's quote - "I'm note sure they would have stayed together if Stu hadn't been there.' Imho  he's correct:they didn't.

As I (and others) have suggested the strong argument is the Stones as a "band" - as opposed to a "brand" - died with him.

I liked Jeff Beck's quote about Stu the best.  That's the beauty in the tribute.  There was no pizzazz just great relaxed playing.  The more I watch the more I like.  I am knocked out by Mick Taylor.  And seeing Bill Wyman again - outstanding.  I'd hate to see this thread get buried again in a sea of bumped up schtick.

Ben Waters has a few more 'Boogie 4 Stu' dates listed on his gigs page, including "very special guests" on May 22.

Maybe the Ambassadors wasn't the last we'll see of some of these guys...

Very nice and often very funny piece on Stu in the new issue of UNCUT which is just out.

Thankfully, JJackFl over on IORR has saved me the bother of scanning it - many thanks to him for this :

It's quite funny in parts, isnt it - but there's also an element of poignancy about it as it really illustrates how the Stones have changed so much as a band (or organization) since Stu died.

In a nutshell - while the 'Sixth Stone' or 'We're working for him' cliches up to '85 could be said about Stu, since then you could argue with some justification that that tag has applied more to Cohl than anyone else.

The more I watch the more I am convinced it would not have been as good if Mick and Keith had been there.  Their presence would have added a production element and tension that is happily missing.  I only wish the Stones could keep it as loose, relaxed and real as the Boogie for Stu has been.  That would be something to see.

I believe only the studio album is being released and the live show was just in support of that. I don't think any plans exist for a live album nor have any boots popped up yet?

Posted this on the previous page:

Made an inquiry through Ben Waters' site regarding a possible audio/video release of these shows.

Response was that nothing's planned, "but keep an eye on the website."



As for recordings, UrbanSteel has compiled several YouTube clips on PAL DVD - here or here.

Still no audio...

It was more relaxed without them, imo.  As Charlie said earlier - "It's about the music, not the money."  If they had been there the focus would have been on THEM and how they reacted to being on stage after Keith's book.  When you have Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood on stage saluting Stu - that's more than enough for me.  That's about the MUSIC.

BOOGIE 4 STU


A great night at The Ambassadors on the 9th March, to celebrate the life of Ian Stewart, founder member and pianist with The Stones.

As Stu was a boogie woogie man, the house band was The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie, comprising two pianos, a bass and Charlie Watts on drums. Add to that a mix of Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor, Mick Hucknall, myself and a cast of too many to mention and it turned out to be a wonderful evening to honour Stu.

Sir Peter Blake attended, having generously painted a wonderful portrait of Stu for the Album cover. The entire proceeds of the album will go the Charity "Mending Broken Hearts" for The British Heart Foundation.

It was a wonderful one off evening which would be difficult to reproduce.

But you never know - we may try sometime!
