Bill Wyman Says No Thank You To The Rolling Stones Tour

(Gibson) Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has said that he is not interested in rejoining his former band. Wyman played with the Stones for the first time in 20 years in London in November last year.

The Express asked Wyman what he would say if Mick Jagger asked him to rejoin the band: "I'd say 'no'…Thirty years was great but I've got better things to be doing now. That time has gone."

Wyman seems to be upset that he only got to play on two songs with the band: "I thought I was going to get quite heavily involved because I was led to believe that throughout the year by them," adding "Keith [Richards] in particular made me think that I would be a large part of it but when it came to it they told me they only wanted me to do two songs. It was fun but I regretted not playing more. I was a bass guitarist, a rhythm guitarist; I have to be on the button from the moment Charlie [Watts] does that first drum roll… I came off just as I was warming up and getting into it."

When he was asked if he wanted to join the Stones for the US leg of the anniversary tour, Wyman turned down the offer: "When they asked me to go to America for two weeks to do three shows there, I said 'For two songs? No thank you'." It remains to be seen if Wyman will be invited to play with the Rolling Stones at any of their upcoming UK gigs this summer. more on this story
