Bill Wyman Records With The Rolling Stones Once Again

(Gibson) Bill Wyman has definitely reunited with The Rolling Stones for a new tribute album. The bassist, who left The Stones in 1992, has teamed up with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood to record a version of Bob Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" on a new charity album, Boogie 4 Stu, in tribute to the band's late co-founder Ian Stewart.

As previous reported by Gibson.com, the album is helmed by pianist Ben Waters, with all proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation. Jools Holland and Polly Harvey also reportedly play on the album, which is produced by Glyn Johns. The five Stones did not, however, physically get together in the studio for the track: each layed down their parts in separate studios around the world.

As reported on Music-News.com, a band source explained: "Charlie and Ronnie were already playing on the album and then Keith recorded his parts in New York, including 'Watching the River Flow." This was e-mailed back to Mick in France and he sent it back with a vocal and harmonica track. Bill also put the bassline on." more on this story
