A man who needs to prove nothing, but still wants to. Bill Wyman played bass with the Rolling Stones for thirty years and is still eager to play funky rhythm and blues. Together with his star-studded and enthusiastic band - The Rhythm Kings - he enjoys the Good Old Times live. Wyman s fame came after hearing a bass guitar at a Barron Knights' concert, which he fell in love with and decided this would be his signature instrument. He created the first fretless electric bass by removing the frets from a bass guitar he was reworking, which highly impressed the Stones and made a name for himself within the band. After his departure from the Stones, Wyman released three solo albums, the last of which yielded a European hit single, "(Si, Si) Je Suis Un Rock Star", a parody of his French rock star exile status. He has also composed music for two films by Italian film director Dario Argento: 1985's Phenomena and 1987's Terror At The Opera, and has written an autobiography, Stone Alone , about his time with the band. This CD was recorded at a TV concert Show in Baden-Baden on 26 April 2000. Newly mixed with great sound quality, it also includes an additional bonus track. Featuring Bill Wyman, Georgie Fame, Gary Brooker, Albert Lee, Beverley Skeete, Terry Taylor and Graham Broad, this is Bill Wyman s Rhythm Kings Struttin their stuff! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The music has a joyous grin right through it, carrying the Wyman stamp of rock solid R&B quality. If you have R&B in your blood then you need this album to keep it flowing.
Since I first wrote this in 2000 they have produced a lot more, and you might also like to hear "Double Bill". There are several 'Bootleg Kings' CDs (recorded at their concerts) on the Bill Wyman website as well.
