    Interviewer: Okay, so that was then, Mick. You’re about twenty, twenty-one years old.

    MT: Yes, very young, very angelic looking, uhm…

    MT: Still got a nice pair of legs, though.

    Interviewer: Very nice pins, I have to say.

    MT: Yup.

    Interviewer: So your first concert with the Rolling Stones was 1968 in Hyde Park. It was a huge concert.

    MT: Sixty-nine, I think.

    Interviewer: Sixty-nine, was it?

     photo MT interview 2_zpswdnagdkm.jpg

    MT: Yeah. I mean, for me it was very exciting. I think it was kind of very nerve wracking for all of us, because… nobody, and uh, no rock and roll band, I… to my knowledge, had ever done anything on that scale.

    Interviewer: As jobs go, what was it like?

     photo MT interview 8B_zps70p9egy6.jpg

    MT: Oh, it was a pretty good job for, what, six and a half years? Yeah. Yeah. I… don’t want to, don’t wish to sound too corny, but I would say for most of the six and a half years, I got quite a lot of satisfaction out of it, and made a lot of money.

    Interviewer: What was Mick Jagger like?

     photo MT interview 9_zps4zuaf7wo.jpg

    MT: Oh, he was alright. You know, I mean, he was a bit difficult at times. A bit of a, a bit of a prima donna, you know, but, uh… what do you expect, you know? I mean, he’s a, he’s a great entertainer.

    He wrote all the Stones’s ballads, too.

    Seriously, there are a couple of those Taylor interviews. What about the hundreds of Keith’s fairytales?  🙂

    From Keith, this is expected.  :mrgreen: An unusual interview for Keith worth posting would be titled “Keith Richards interview: sober”. MT, on the other hand, is supposed to have been more quiet and unassuming than even Bill Wyman or Charlie Watts.

     

    It’s just that this MT interview has been amusing me for years, and I’ve been wanting to post it but it’s never been on YouTube. So I just typed it down word for word, took some screencaps from the DVD, and inserted the photos in the appropriate places of the interview. I mean, it’s hilarious — he calls Mick Jagger a “prima donna” after an impulsive moment where he stands up to show off his “great pair of legs” to the interviewer.

    At least he’s got pretty blond hair. I can understand why Jagger “fancied him”.

    Keith repeats the exact same often cruel oneliners about Brian, Mick and others and makes himself look good. His BS is taken at face value and noone dares to question him.

    Taylor seemingly exaggerated about the ballads but on the other hand we dont know how  much he contributed. The ballads that were cowritten and written with Taylor in the band were just that: unique for that era.

    The compositions weren’t unique, Carpet. Keep in mind that they already had written and released excellent AND different ballads as As Tears Go By, Lady Jane, Play With Fire, Back Street Girl, She Smiled Sweetly, Factory Girl, and YCAGWYW.

    However, how those new songs sounded with Taylor on board was unique indeed. That means that he did his job as a guitarist, putting his stamp on the songs. Composing a song, or writing lyrics, is writing. After a song is written, it may sound sketchy and unfinished. Then, it’s the band’s job to shape them up. Taylor was good at that, or rather excellent, I’d say.

    A prime example being Plundered My Soul, the last top 20 hit they ever had — anywhere!

    Im pretty sure Taylor did a lot more than shape songs up. Jagger/Richards is a label. I can picture Jagger driving the band forward and working closely with Taylor (as stated by others) just like he always has. He never stops.  😎

    You being pretty sure won’t bring us remotely near what happened, though.

    «Worked closely» means shaping the songs that Mick had written, according to all the internet sites out there AND Jagger’s and Taylor’s quotes – for about 99,9 percent of the tunes, maybe more.

    With that as the starting point for this discussion, it becomes silly to take it any further, imo (not that I haven’t done that a zillion times, but maybe I grew up).
