  • Ronnie Wood

    Hi all, I'm just reading Ronnie's autobiography.

    Good read as he has lived the elite rock star life.

    What really nailed my attention was that he said he played guitar and bass on Maggie May.

    I've always loved that song and was taken with the guitar intro and the bass lines. Classy stuff.

    So I downloaded the original song from utube and it included a short classical guitar piece, the track before MM.

    Thinking back to the '70's I seem to recall that tune being on the LP.

    I wonder if anyone here could tell me,if Ronnie played that also?

    And if not who did.

    Cheers.

    Every Picture Tells a Story came out in '71, and IIRC, there were no less than four guitarists mentioned, including Stewart's occassional songwriting partner Martin Quittenton (of Steamhammer) and Ronnie Wood (who also played bass on some of the songs*)...anyway Quittenton wrote 'Henry', the track you mentioned, so I am going to guess he was the one who played it. He also co-wrote 'You Wear it Well'.


    *Many forget Ronnie was the bassist on both Truth and Beckola, before he and Stewart split off to form the Faces (which kept them from performing at Woodstock with Jeff Beck, although they were listed in the promo posters).
