Ex-Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman says he will “never again” perform with The Rolling Stones. Despite playing with the band in November for their 50th anniversary shows in London, Wyman is not touring with them on their current 50 and Counting North American tour.
“The nice thing was that my kids saw me on stage with the Stones,” Wyman recently told the Huffington Post. “They’d asked me the December before, and I had to jam with them for three days. I was under the impression I was going to get really involved, but when it came to it, they only wanted me to do two songs, which was very disappointing.”
“I’ve always maintained that you can’t go back to things, and they can never be the same… It doesn’t work. It was a one-off. Five minutes. OK, never again. No regrets, we’re still great friends.”
Bill Wyman was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1962 until 1993. Since 1997, he has recorded and toured with his own band, Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings.
