To begin with, the boy grew up in Hatfield, where he played in the band Gods and other small local bands. The turning point in his life was when John Mayall invited him to play with him on stage during a session at Hatfield Polytechneque. It was during that improvised session when he understood that his future was to be a musician.

He was introduced to the public as the new Rolling Stones guitarist at the open air concert at Hyde Park in London in July 1969, which turned out to be a tribute to former band member Brian Jones, who died a few days earlier. Mick Taylor participated in the most creative phase of the Rolling Stones, between the late 1960s and the first half of the 1970s, spending five years with the group, and recording seven albums including “Let It Bleed” in 1969 and “Exile on Main St.” in 1972. However, Mick Taylor was often humiliated by Keith Richards but being exhausted because of drug problems, he left the group at the end of 1974 and was replaced by Ron Wood. However, Taylor participated at the Rolling Stones’ induction ceremony at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. In 2012, he returned on stage with the group at the O2 Arena of London, on the occasion of their new tour. The success of his part-time reintegration on stage was such that the group took him on tour in the USA and he played from two to four tracks per concert, the songs including “Midnight Rambler”, “Love in Vain”, “Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’” and others. In 2014, Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones again in concert at the Stade de France in Paris.

After leaving the Stones in 1974, Taylor toured with Jack Bruce in 1975, Alvin Lee in 1981, John Mayall in 1982 and 1983, Bob Dylan in 1984, and with many others. He also appeared, among others, in albums by Ronnie Wood, Billy Preston, Bob Dylan and Elliott Murphy. In 1979, he released his first solo album, well received by the critics, but which was not commercially successful. Since then, he has been touring in a rather irregular manner, and has made guest appearances at some concerts of The Allman Brothers, Joe Walsh, The Grateful Dead and Dick Rivers. Later, Mick Taylor recorded several tracks with Keith Richards, including “The Harder They Come” in 1975 and “I Could Have Stood You Up” in 1988.

Finally, in the personal life of Mick Taylor, he was married to Rose Miller and they have a daughter named Chloe Taylor was born in 1971. The two got married in 1975 but divorced a few years later. His second daughter Emma was born from a short relationship with an American singer. Taylor currently resides in Suffolk, UK.

1People are always asking me whether I regret leaving the Rolling Stones. I make no bones about it - had I remained with the band, I would probably be dead. I was having difficulties with drug addiction and couldn't have lasted. But I'm clean now and have been for years. My life is so much better now than being a drug-ravaged member of the Stones. So no, I don't regret leaving. 'But people who really know me ask another question - whether I regret joining the Stones. To me, that's far more astute.
2When they asked me to come to the studio in 1969, I thought they just wanted me to play a session. I sort of liked them, but was never passionate about the Stones. In some ways I liked The Beatles more. At the first session, I overdubbed the guitar on Honky Tonk Women, but I thought they were all a little bit vain and full of themselves. After doing guitar parts on three songs, I said to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "If you guys are just going to sit and mess around, I'm going home. I've got things to do." I told them to give me a call if they wanted me to do anything else. The next day, Mick called and asked if I wanted to join. He came and picked me up in his Bentley. I wasn't impressed by all that and I think they kind of liked that attitude.
3My drug use began as an occasional recreational thing. I never thought I would get addicted. But by the time I returned to London in 1973, I'd become more and more dependent. I was using every day.
4I was a bit impulsive back then. I had a reputation on stage of being quiet, but off it I wasn't. We used to fight and argue all the time. And one of the things I got angry about was that Mick had promised to give me some credit for some of the songs - and he didn't. I believed I'd contributed enough. Let's put it this way - without my contribution those songs would not have existed. There's not many but enough, things like Sway and Moonlight Mile on Sticky Fingers and a couple of others.
5When I left, they cut off my money for a year, just like that. But I had to leave because I was frustrated. I had a creative relationship with Mick, but I was also bored for a lot of the time. I wanted more and they wanted to remain the same. I also wanted to deal with my drug problems. I believed if I removed myself from that situation I would sort myself out.
6After leaving the Rolling Stones: My father was dying of liver cancer and was in terrible pain in hospital. He said he knew I'd been using drugs and asked if I would ask the nurses for stronger painkillers. I did and they gave him morphine. I sat there trying to balance the irony of the situation.
7After moving to Los Angeles in 1990: I joined the line of junkies. I was a virtual down and out. My lowest time was in the clinic on Christmas Day. A nurse gave me a tumbler of methadone and said, "Have a nice Christmas." I told her there wasn't any Christmas for junkies. I decided to go back to England [in the mid 1990s] to find a cure, however painful.
