This bassline alone immortalises Bill Wyman:

Having a stand out musician would ruin them, The beauty with the Stones is it's the band as a unit that makes it work.

Well said. They were both equally essential, amounting to more than any individual could achieve. I view Jagger as the adventurous spirit, and Keef as the one more interested in doing the subtle variation. It just goes to show how very talented they were, completely overshadowing one of the greatest bassists, ever. People rarely talk about how extraordinary Wyman was.

Yeah, he actually is a good bassist, rhythm is an important part of the RS sound in which bass certainly plays a part, virtually everyone overlooks him and I dunno why when The Stones are as popular as they are.

I've always loved the drumming style of Charlie Watts, very controlled and smooth.

Ronnie and Keith.

Hell, if I look at it this way, everyone contributes alot to make the band what they are.

like Urban said, it's them as a unit that makes them work. i know i wouldn't buy a solo album of any of the guys as opposed to the band itself
