Mick Jagger Celebrates Former The Rolling Stones Guitarist Mick Taylor’s Birthday

The official Twitter account of The Rolling Stones posted a tweet to share the message of the band’s frontman Mick Jagger celebrating their former guitarist Mick Taylor’s 71st birthday whom he defined as ‘very exciting.’

As you may remember, back in 1969, Brian Jones parted ways with The Rolling Stones and he was replaced by Mick Taylor, who was recommended by John Mayall and Ian Stewart. Taylor joined the recording of the songs titled ‘Country Honk’ and ‘Live With Me’ for the 1969 album ‘Let It Bleed.’ He also appeared on the band’s single named ‘Honky Tonk Women’ which was released in 1969 in the UK.

Later in 1974, Mick Taylor announced that he decided to leave The Rolling Stones which came as a shock to many of the fans. Following his departure, the rumors started out about his bandmates being angry at him since they were about to begin recording a new album shortly after Mick left the band.

Regardless of the previous disagreements within the band, the official Twitter account of The Rolling Stones shared a message from Mick Jagger to celebrate Mick Taylor’s 71st birthday, which is on January 17. In Jagger’s quote about his former bandmate, he mentioned that Taylor was able to play ‘very fluid lines’ against his vocals quite easily. Jagger also stated that working with Mick was actually a very exciting experience.

Happy birthday Mick Taylor!

Additionally, Mick Jagger’s message to Taylor received the appreciation of his fans, however, some were surprised by the fact that he made time for celebrating his former bandmate’s birthday while he didn’t celebrate his daughter Georgia May Jagger’s birthday on any of his social media accounts. Georgia May recently turned 29 years old on January 12.
