Bill Wyman returns on June 22 with a new album,
Back To Basics.
Incredibly, this is the
first UK solo album in 33 years from the ex-Rolling Stones bassist. Mind you. he’s been
busy: since quitting the Stones in 1993 after 31 years in the band, he has become the
author of seven books, a globally exhibited photographer, a metal-detecting expert with
his own brand of metal detector (really), a producer, a composer for film and TV and
the founder of the Rhythm Kings. "Initially I thought I'm a bit old for this.’’ he said on
recording a new album, "but then I thought, all the old blues musicians played till they
dropped, so why don't I give it a go?" Musicians joining Bill in the studio included guitarist
Terry Taylor. Guy Fletcher, Graham Broad and Robbie McIntosh and co-production came
from Andy Wright. Look out for our Wyman interview shortly.
