In 1979 I had the opportunity to do interview Mick Taylor, the great British blues-rock guitarist who was just about to release his self-titled solo album on Columbia. An extremely gracious guy, Mick spoke to me for two hours. He began by covering his early life and his adventures and albums with John Mayall. He reveals the guitars, amps, and effects he used on his classic cuts on Mayall albums such as Bare Wires and Blues From Laurel Canyon, discusses the influence of blues records, and talks about sharing gigs with Jimi Hendrix.

Then we spoke at length about his years with the Rolling Stones, which lasted from Let It Bleed through Itís Only Rock and Roll. Mick offers a wealth of insight into how classic tracks were recorded and how specific guitar parts were played, gives his unabashed opinion of various albums (yea Exile, nay Goats Head), and goes into his reasons for quitting the band. The final section is devoted to his debut solo album, his guitars, playing techniques, advice for slide players, his work with other musicians, and much more. If youíre into Mick Taylor, this massive 11,000-word interview is for you! Itís posted it in its entirety here:

GREAT interview, Jas. I have the magazine in which the edited version of this appeared years back, but it is great to read the full one.

Mick Taylor has done so much gorgeous work - you need to do a follow-up interview!

Wow! What an AWESOME photo of Mick playing slide on his Les Paul. Looks like maybe Colin Alen playing drums behind him so it was must have been with the Bluesbreakers, but I suppose it could be Charlie, too.

His solo LP on Columbia (which was re-released on CD with an extra track - http://www.amazon.com/Mick-Taylor/dp/B005197WMO/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=U TF8&qid=1318877486&sr=1-1 - is one of my favorite records....Leather Jacket is just a great song. Been trying to track down the Stones' demo of it for years....and Lowell George's slide playing on SW 5, I think? is just sublime.
