The Rolling Stones won’t be performing in 2012, but one former band member certainly will. Ex-guitarist Mick Taylor will be coming to New York City in May for six shows at the Iridium Jazz Club. Taylor will appear from May 9th to the 14th and play two shows a night, with the final night marking the launch of “Guitar World & The Iridium Present,” a new monthly series that will highlight the world’s best guitar players while accompanied by the Les Paul Trio.
Taylor, who was a part of the Stones from 1969-1975, will play two shows a night with an all star band consisting of Max Middleon (keyboards), Wilbur Bascomb (bass), Bernard Purdie (drums), and Jon Paris (guitar/vocals).
Taylor, the New York Times reports, will launch the “Iridium Presents” series on May 14th by performing with Middleon and the Les Paul Trio. Guitarist Lou Pallo, bassist Nicki Parrott, and pianist John Colianni will join artists young and old on a Monday once a month with a portion of the door going towards The Les Paul Foundation.
