    I read somewhere that their monitors blew right away, so they couldn’t hear each other.

    Mick Taylor only played with them for the 50th anniversary 2013 shows. They limited him to three songs and also acoustic on the encore (Satisfaction). I saw two shows on that tour. Let’s just say that Taylor was a shadow of his former self... He’s definitely hit-or-miss these days.

    Regarding the OP, there’s no way Keith would allow a shadow guitarist, and there’s way too many mistakes by Keith these days to attribute the playing to someone else.

    I personally cannot believe Keef or the stones has a 3rd Guitarist.

    Ronnie prolly carries the weight but as many have said before on this thread - the feel of this band is all down to Keef - he leads the BAND!!!!

    They are GLORIOUS BASTARDS,

    That intro is 100% pure Keith.

    You say that as if it's a bad thing. Hell I'd love to rest on my hall of fame laurels like Jimmy Page or whomever. Sit back and just be in an awesome state. Let the world talk about me and kiss my arse

    I have no problem with support players, if they are visible. For example, I've seen Fleetwood Mac several times live, and they always have several extra players onstage. Every one of those shows sounded great, and I never heard anyone care in any way about the reinforcement. If the extra people are hidden, I wouldn't consider it dishonest, but it is a little disingenuous.

    Easy
    . They find musicians who can play to any tempo or jam. Not that difficult.

    Well, those two points were more for the time based methods, like tracks.

    But, you’re telling me that it would be easy to shadow, with zero latency, Keith Richard’s playing? The guy that starts most songs without even a count off.

    Have you ever seen/heard The Rolling Stones?

    Huge fan here. Ronnie and Keith totally live, mistakes and all. In fact their aging skills are totally noticable. Blondie played along for many tours but never “off stage” but is not in the backline anymore. You ARE hearing a lot of Chuck Level playing many “guitar riffs” on keys which I don’t like but he’s helping things along. Watch the Scorsesse flick and you can hear plenty of Keiths mistakes. With that said Keith can still play extremely well just has trouble on stage due to age etc. As does Ronnie but both still charming as hell. I wish they wouldn’t play stadiums. 20 nights at the Beacon with an acoustic set each night, fans only, that would be my dream LOL. As far as vocals go it’s all Mick with Bernard helping since 89. Live Stones still totally legit.

    Could be, but he’s listed as a co-writer on all those great songs. Wow!

    I call BS on all y'all who are so willing to tear down your idols that you would actually believe that a band like the Stones needs help to play correctly. I call BS loudly. Are you all that desperate to find some offense, some supposed transgression, some imagined shortcoming to complain about? Damn. Bunch of bandwagoneers is what I see.

    How can you possibly know this? Nobody defies age- and certainly not
    the Rolling Stones - and most certainly not Kieth Richards. I bet they have
    a crap ton of support musicians or tracks or samples or a combination of
    all of those.

    Really - try being 75 and singing a whole 2 hours a night 9 times a month.
    There are a couple of singers that have done that - Tony Bennett being one
    - but the keys and style he sings these days has been adjusted to compensate
    for his age. And he's not a Rock/Blues singer - which is near impossible to keep
    up to par past 60 or so.

    It's not putting them down by any means - it's saying that no one defies age -
    and I don't care who you are or how many doctors work on you - nor how many
    miracle hormones or drugs you take. And it's no slight against Richards or Jagger
    to say that they can't keep up like they used too. It's just the facts of aging out.

    Agreed. A desert island record for me. No hidden musicians on this--they're all on stage! LOL
