On this date in 1973, the Rolling Stones’ album “Goats Head Soup” hit # 1 on the album chart. So let’s make Mick Taylor the Bazaar Guitar, “GUITAR HERO OF THE DAY”. Taylor is an English musician, best known as a former member of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers (1967–69) and the Rolling Stones (1969–74). Taylor’s onstage debut as a member of the Rolling Stones, came at the age of 20, July 5th 1969. It was the free concert in Hyde Park, London, before an estimated quarter of a million people. The concert turned into a tribute to Brian Jones (whom Taylor had also just replaced), who had died two days before the concert. As a member of the Stones, he appeared on several classic albums, including Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main St., and Goats Head Soup. Taylor is ranked 37th in Rolling Stone list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash states that Taylor had the biggest influence on him. Throughout his career, Taylor has used various guitars, but is mostly associated with the Gibson Les Paul.
